New Fragmenta Track

The new Fragmenta track has finally been published which you can download for free on our ReverbNation page here.

Entitled "Odimorsus", this song shows how our sound has progressed, refining our industrial elements and experimenting with even larger soundscapes, dynamics and textures. It is the first track to feature Ryu "Ninja", drummer of over a year and new bassist Steve Koutsouliotas.

The title comes from two Latin words meaning "Hate" and "Pain" respectively as referred in the songs lyrics.

Be sure to download and share.

Reverbnation allows listeners to ask the band questions. Alternatively you may contact us through this site or our facebook page.

I hope you all enjoy the song!

What's old and what's new?

It's been an exciting past couple of months. All our shows went swimmingly well. Great turnouts and a great success for the shows we self-organized. The bands who played with us were fantastic and absolutely stand-up guys as well particularly Bedlam, Dressed to Depressed and Lacerated Soul who've been especially cool to us and are definitely worth checking out.

We're excited as hell to announce that we're touring Victoria early next year! As soon as we pull the trigger on the dates and everything is finalized, you'll know everything you need to here and elsewere. We also have our material written for the next album which we're about to begin recording.

As some of you may already know, while tonight marks the 8th year of the tragic demise of metal's legendary guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbot, it also marks the 5th anniversary of when Fragmenta officially hit the stage and started kicking ass. We played Fucking Hostile last night at Fight For The Right for great justice. Enjoy this video we quickly put together to celebrate the half a decade we've been doing this!

Stay Tuned!

About Fragmenta

Since 2007, Fragmenta began whipping local crowds into a moshing frenzy with their searing brand of progressive edged thrash metal. Fragmenta spent the following years gigging intensely playing many notable shows, receiving airplay both locally and internationally and having their demos featured in several worldwide compilations.

In 2011 Fragmenta released their debut album titled SEDITION; their intense thrash sound evolved even further, injected with unconventional grooves and tinged with industrial elements. With a sharp, visceral production and aggressive delivery, the band was criticized by controversial TV program Today Tonight, noting their "dark themes" and branding them "a violent assault on the senses".

SEDITION received positive reviews by well known metal sites and respectable airplay while being accompanied by interviews on the air and on the web.

Fragmenta is soon to release their sophomore album ODIMORSUS and has signed to German metal specialists Legacy Records from Germany.


History

Formed in South Australia in 2007, Fragmenta made an energetic entrance into the live music scene, bringing a lively and aggressive movement among fans and fellow bands alike. They then made a solid, sonic debut with their first self-produced demo THE FIRST ASSAULT. A straight ahead Thrash Metal attack with a melodic twist. The original lineup of current member Duncan Fisher on vocals and lead guitar, drummer Cameron Hynd, guitarist Zac Backs and bassist Mike Ward brought forth ideals and sounds that were thought to have been forgotten which resonated with a solid, working class outer suburban fanbase, among which they were soon known for their high energy shows and crowd interaction.

Soon after THE FIRST ASSAULT made its way underground receiving worldwide praise, Fragmenta was featured on two internationally released compilations as part of a movement to promote real, untamed metal mayhem. First featured in Kill City Vol: 6 with Black Master from THE FIRST ASSAULT.

In 2008 they produced the single song MERCHANTS OF DOOM which stepped up their game, showing maturity and development of a signature sound with its complex riffs and unique time signatures while retaining the unrelenting sound of thrash metal. This was featured on Downtown Metal Vol: 7.

Fragmenta had a relentless string of live shows all throughout Adelaide playing with high profile bands such as Lord, Se Bon Ki Ra, Double Dragon and Truth Corroded. They also received considerable recognition for their talent, unique sound and energy from Geoff Stapleton of legendary Australian rock band Gangajjang, himself a former member of cutting edge metal band Heavy Rat, Captain Thunder and The Aliens. They also received praise from notable international metal bands.

After dormancy in late 2009, Fragmenta regrouped with new members in 2010. With Sam Stretton bringing powerful, machine-like drumming, Andrew Gasson delivering a modern industrial thrash influence and Saxon Bell's heavy Venom inspired bass style, Fragmenta honed its industrial-edged, modern thrash sound.

The album has so far recieved favourable reviews, one of note being on Nuclear Blast sponsored web zine NEW METAL MEDIA.

The band was featured on international radio stations Metal Express, Terror Zone and was featured on the Thrash or Be Thrashed online compilation, circulated internationally. After playing a string of professional, cohesive and entertaining shows in their hometown of Adelaide.

in February 2011, Fragmenta began recording their first album Sedition which was released on October 11 the same year.

The beggining of 2012 marked the amicable but unfortunate departure of the 2 year lineup featured on SEDITION but was also Fragmenta's interstate touring debut, playing as far and wide as Darwin.

New members Ryu "Ninja" and Steve Koutsouliotas took up the rhythm section to continue performing Australia wide and record new material
