Pronostic Hit The Red Button with “An Atomic Decision”

The power of the riff has long been understood and respected in the metal community. It can send you into an all out blitz or pull you into a groove abyss the likes of which you may never escape. It seems nowadays however, that band after band are constantly falling into the trap of putting on artistic blinders in an effort to reach some new level of heaviness and creativity and originality seem to have been abandoned all together while us fans are left to wade through the ashes of what could have been. Generic carbon copy garbage may be the new norm but a handful of bands do remain that put actual effort and originality into their work and we’ve sifted through the mud to bring you Montreal‘s own Pronostic and their debut full length album, “An Atomic Decision“.

From it’s haunting beginning to its destructive end, this kick to the teeth is absolutely plastered with virtuoso composition and stellar musicianship. Pronostic, have managed to fuse together both technical and progressive Death Metal attitudes with bone chilling tones and magnificent peaks and crevasses resulting in an album that will blood eagle your soul with its intensity, and then place a single rose at your feet as the vultures pick at your rotting carcass.

All immaculate visual descriptors aside, with all the negative events of late this album could not have come at a better time and I for one have a new front runner for Underground Album Of The Year. Check it out for yourselves below.

Danzig Has Fan Severely Beaten

image

Most of us in the Metal community are aware of the dangers we are going to face when going to a show. Even outside of the pits, things can happen that would cause some degree of harm. None of us, however, expect to be brought on stage to face that danger. Unfortunately for Ireland native, Neil Dalton, that’s exactly what happened to him at last night’s Danzig show at The Metropolis in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Reportedly, Mr. Dalton ignored the band’s stiff warning prohibiting any video, audio, or pictures being taken at any of his shows during his current tour. (In all honestly, we here at That Metal Fan can’t blame him for trying though, after all, he did fly from Ireland and spend $100 on tickets just to attend the show.) Upon being seen taking a picture of Glenn Danzig, the lead singer for Danzig, Mr. Dalton was brought on stage where he claims to have been tells by security and then beaten. As if the injuries weren’t enough, Mr. Danzig decided to add some insult by throwing in a punch himself. Below is a picture of the bloody aftermath.

Regardless of Glenn Danzig’s violent tendencies towards just about everyone, as proven by several accounts and video, Montreal police have reportedly not pressed charges stating that as there was no video evidence, (go figure), there is no proof.
