Fragment: Demo 7" (new)

Imminent Destruction Records


6 tracks of raw and distorted crasher crust from Canadian Hardcore Punks FRAGMENT.

Debut release from this new band, this is their awesome demo pressed to vinyl.
Featuring members of LIFECHAIN, CONTAGIUM and CONCRETE ASYLUM bringing feedback drenched aggressive hardcore with pummeling drumming.

This bass lines instantly brings to mind FRAMTID but you can hear the LIFECHAIN guitar style in there also.

A furious mix of addictive D-Beat Hardcore!

Our take: Demo-on-a-7" from this Canadian band on a UK label, and the artwork, which features knives, skulls, and a mushroom cloud, is a pretty good indication of what you'll get here... total d-beat noise inspired by records like the second two Anti-Cimex 7"s, Shitlickers, and Framtid. There are a lot of different tacks you can take in the d-beat game, from huge "stadium crust" to ultra-raw noise punk to the almost avant-garde style of bands like D-Clone, but, like Framtid, Fragment have arrived at a sound that sounds big and imposing but at the same time very, very raw. It's kind of amazing that songs and riffs can shine through production that's so noisy, but they really do hit with a lot of impact here. So, basically, Framtid fans take note... there are few groups out there who can approach that band's power, but Fragment are one of them.
