First Fragment - Reveal 'Solus' Track & Visualizer


Tech death metal operatives First Fragment have dropped another banger from their upcoming album, Gloire Éternelle, in the form of "Solus". The new outing will see the light on October 29th (Unique Leader Records).




Guitarist Phil Tougas comments: "Our 3rd single "Solus" is quite different from either of the singles we have released thus far. It also draws a lot of inspiration from the 80's greats like Joey Tafolla, Cacophony, Elegy, Coroner, Apocrypha & of course Yngwie Malmsteen to further showcase a facet of our sound which we like to classify as "extreme neoclassical metal" - a rare genre where the vocals and drumming are closer to extreme metal while the non-death metal string work remains much closer to neoclassical power metal. While the previous two singles focused on swing grooves or highly complex neoclassical counterpoint fused with death metal, this song is pretty much an homage to the band's old school influences and contains less blastbeats than usual, giving more room for the dancing guitars and lead bass to express themselves. Enjoy and keep spreading the word!"

If the rest of the album holds up to these first three singles this is shaping up to be one of the greatest tech albums of all time

The bass in this song completely overshadows the rest of the instruments. To much emphasis...

That's sorta the appeal to First Fragment, especially this song. Pretty sweet in my opinion. They have an amazing bass player and they like to highlight it.

Exactly, that's a big part of what fans of First Fragment listen for, their bassist, Dominic Lapointe, was also the bassist for Quo Vadis, which is pretty much the best street cred any techdeath artist can boast
