Manchester Progressive metal band Prognosis has returned with a venomous new single in Drones. A song that prophesises that technological advancements in modern warfare could leave us at the mercy of emotionless killing machines, the harrowing line “this human touch has left this war,” haunts its chorus.

Juxtaposing the technical, assaulting prog metal of Dream Theater and Meshuggah with the epic and infectious song writing of Muse and Devin Townsend, Prognosis have never sounded more deadly than this.

First debuted live at the end of 2015, it has fast become a staple of their sets and a firm favourite in the Manchester Metal Community. Having teamed up with Chris Taylor at NoiseBoy Studios (Burial. Wolf Bastard, Lester Verde) and The Drum Tamer (Cleft, Mask of Bees, Mothertongue) to lay down the song, this is a recording which packs a real punch.

Complimented by returning artist Paul Cooke’s post-apocalyptic artwork, with Drones, Prognosis are making a forceful statement.



Silver plagues the sky, before the setting sun,
Nowhere left to hide, all you can do is run,

Helpless children cry, amid their final breaths,
Shifting sands of time, bringing only death,

Drones, set to kill,

Crosshair dots your eyes, As the night draws near,
Fortune waves goodbye, leaving lonely fear,

Drones, set to kill,

Watch your brand new fate, as you dissipate,
Built for blood and gore, this human touch has left this war.


released August 18, 2016
Drones is written by Phil Weller, Danny Daemon, Christian Hickson, Dan Webster & Alex Weller
