|The Old Dead Tree|
|Genres||Progressive death metal
|Labels||Season of Mist|
|Past members||Frédéric Guillemot
Their musical style is a mixture of death metal elements, such as double bass drumming and heavy guitar riffing, and more mellow, progressive, gothic metal and doom metal elements. Singer Manuel Munoz varies between harsh growls and a melodic tenor voice.
Their second album The Perpetual Motion was released in 2005.
Their latest record to date is The Water Fields which was released in September 2007. It received critical acclaim.
A new album was tentatively scheduled to be recorded in Fall 2009, but creative differences caused the band to break up before it could be finished.
In 2013, in order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of “The Nameless Disease”, Manuel, Nicolas, Gilles and Raphael reunited to perform the album in its entirety on a series of live shows, including at Hellfest. Prior to the tour, a special edition of “The Nameless Disease” was released digitally.
