Dichotomy are a five piece melodic tech-death metal band hailing from Dublin, Ireland; influenced by bands such as Death, Necrophagist, Gojira and Opeth. The band was formed in 2010 by guitarists Andy Kealy & Rats with a mind to combine the technicality of death metal with the groove and musicality of other genres. They were soon joined by Kev O’Connor (vocals) and Dave Fay (drums), and began writing material under the name Dichotomy to suitably describe the contrasting styles used in the music. Playing in the Irish underground scene, the material instantly made its’ mark. The arrival of bassist Neil Coburn in 2013 completed the line-up.
