'Fragments' is an album lyrically divided in four acts as a human protagonist contemplates his individuality, spirals towards isolation, collapses along with his world view, and finally capitulates under the weight of these revelations.
Musically the band is making a stand between the modern elements of its debut album «Downfall Of Man» (2011) and the spontaneous approach on the «The Bikini Blues-Sessions»-EP (2012).

The basics of 'Fragments' were recorded live at Blend Studio / Lutry in november 2013 and the vocal- and overdub-sessions happened in december 2013 and january 2014. Mixing and mastering took place in january and february 2014 at the hands of Raphaël Bovey (Abraham, Zatokrev, Impure Wilhelmina, etc.).

The artwork was created by Kahn & Selesnick / New York (

Thrash hasn't been that exciting in years - Mainly because people never thought about actually taking it to the next level!
