BIOGRAPHY

Fragmentum is a melodic dark metal band from Lokeren, Belgium founded by Jan and Gunnar  accompanied on stage by Wouter (drums) and Ozzy (bass) and sounds like a Depeche Mode meets In Flames hybrid as a journalist once described.

Melodies, synths and ambient sounds combined with a heavy and groove riff foundation. 

You can experience these in their most recent creation Quirigua Successors, digitally available as of June.

The full concept album Masters Of Perplexity was released in 2021and presented live on a short European Tour in East Europe. It deals with the Mayan history and philosophy and songs get more meaning listened through chronologically.

In 2019 the first full length album Pugnacity came out establishing Fragmentum’s fundaments being a little more straightforward then before. Songs mainly deal with the inner struggle people sometimes end up with.

Fragmentum also took the opportunity to tour with bands like Children of Bodom, Swallow the Sun, Wolfheart, Soulfly and Annihilator
