    The Old Dead Tree is no more.


    I wish I never had to write those words, but nothing is forever. These last few months, some disagreements started to grow within the band, regarding commitment and musical direction in the making of our fourth album. Those differences of opinions soon turned out to be a dead-end problem and led me to make the decision of ending the band’s activities.


    In twelve years of existence, The Old Dead Tree had its share of line-up changes. Of course, each of them has been an improvement, but they were also painful losses. And I don’t want to face that kind of loss again.



    Be that as it may, I am still extremely proud of the work we have achieved and I want to thank all the people without whom nothing would have been possible: past and present band members with whom I learnt so much and had amazing times, our wonderful crew, our label Season of Mist, our tour booker K Productions, and especially the fans who supported us and encouraged us to go forwards. I wish them all the best in their future endeavours.


    This is now farewell.

    Manuel

    Communiqué : PRETENCE IS BORN!

    "I will always love playing, listening to, and living music...", Nicolas said after parting ways from The Old Dead Tree. As guitarist and songwriter having highly contributed to the artistic orientation of the band, he rapidly felt the needs to pursue his own dreams again with a new project. He naturally found that his long-time friend and bass player Vincent could share his vision. Things became more serious after the split-up of The Old Dead Tree and the duo knew they would need a fuller line-up to move the band up and forward. So Olivier (also involved in thrash metal act Sinn) was rapidly enlisted to their ranks as drummer. Then they asked guitarist Gilles (now also responsible for death core riffing with Jarell) to bring his talent, as his playing style is a perfect match. When it came down to finding a vocalist, the name of Guillaume popped up. The band knew that his skills in singing with Dustbowl (heavy cold rock) were what the new composings screamed for... Luckily, he agreed to join, and PRETENCE has found its final form in February, 2010.
    The music of PRETENCE can be described as some kind of dark melodic metal with wide influences like Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Slayer, Tool...
    After only 7 months of writing and rehearsing together, the band is now ready to enter the studio! The recording process of the debut Album will be achieved by the end of the year...

    Of course, we will keep you up to date on everything, so keep on checking our website & Myspace (both under construction) @ http://www.pretence.org & http://www.myspace.com/pretence-band

    And last but not least, we would like to thank you again for your support! We just can't wait for sharing some good times all together again...

    Heavy Greetings!

    Nicolas, Guillaume, Gilles, Olivier, Vincent
