BIOGRAPHY

FRAGMENTUM were founded in 2015 and became well known as a Belgian diverging metal band. Gunnar Nopens and Jan Bruggeman joined forces after working together in other metal projects like Bellator and Octahedron.

The alliance of musical creativity resulted in the adamant but sincere EP D!VERGE. Working as hell on new songs and enforcing the band with new members for live playing resulted in their debut album PUGNACITY. This full album was released worldwide shortly after touring with Children of Bodom in US and has been received with rave response and reviews from the metal industry and fans. Subsequently Fragmentum shared the stage with Soulfly on their European tour and played more venues with mayor bands like Annihilator.

The second full album MASTERS OF PERPLEXITY containing blasting diverging Maya theme metal songs is ready to be released upon all open-minded metal-heads. No fillers, only killers! Recording, mixing and mastering have been done in their own studio Z-Underground and will be released via their own label Zoorka Records on April 16th 2021.

A cool intriguing video clip of the Origination Of Mankind song will be spread on all social media March 26th 2021. 

A tour to promote the album is planned for beginning of next year. There is a lot more to come soon.
