Quo Vadis

One of the standout members of the well-received Quebec tech death metal camp, Quo Vadis mixes the more technical side of death metal, somewhat like countrymen Martyr, with the more melodic style of the Gothenburg scene. The result is ambitious, energetic, very adept yet suitably brutal death metal, very well played and executed. For whatever reason, the band is still a bit on the unknown side, even after four albums (though the lack of a consistent metal label backing them might be the cause there), but that hopefully will change, as these guys are well worth investigating. The band underwent a major upheaval in July 2008, when everyone save guitarist Bart left the band for "various reasons". New members are onboard, though, and the band continues.
