Nova Scotia's raw crusters return with 5 new tracks of blown out, heavy punk.

Screen printed covers with a large fold out insert / poster featuring art by Adam Kindred / Archaic Filth.


Our take: These Nova Scotian d-beaters return with a new EP on the world’s greatest current crust label, Minnesota’s Desolate Records. As on their last record, Serial Mass Destruction, the sound on Mind Convulsion is strikingly raw… it seems like most noisy bands nowadays get their sound by starting with a good recording and cranking every knob to oblivion, but Fragment’s thin and scratchy sound makes it seem like they threw up a cheap microphone in the corner and let it rip. And rip they do! Fragment’s sound here reminds me of Gloom… full-bore crasher crust blown out to oblivion. While the last EP had one slower, Amebix-y track, Mind Convulsion is a dead sprint, a jagged and jarring assault of non-stop riffs. Dilettantes stay away, because this is raw and ugly enough to scare away the poseurs.
