«Many people had many positive things to say about Technotheism upon its release, and we feel that Metemtechnosis is a worthy successor to it. Compositionally, we have refined many elements and parts of the processes, and from a technical standpoint, we have really stepped up a lot. Those who wanted to hear more of the killer guitar work will assuredly not be disappointed. Metemtechnosis also carries on the story of Technotheism in part two of what will be a trilogy. Everything that was present in Technotheism has been brought back in more compelling ways, and the performances are more on-point than ever before».

The Design Abstract formed with the singular goal of making symphonic death metal that was forward-thinking and played heavily on Sci-Fi tropes. The thesis of the project has always been to blend orchestra, death metal, electronic/industrial, as well as traces of post or prog metal.
The science-fiction infused melodic death metal is suitable for fans of Scar Symmetry, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Soilwork.
