First Fragment Dasein on Limited Edition LP

Dasein is the long long-anticipated debut from Canadian neoclassical-influenced tech death unit First Fragment. Captured at Humanoise Studios with Mathieu Marcotte (Augury, Humanoid) and mixed by Hugues Deslauriers (Augury, Defilementory, Vengeful), the 11-track LP features guest appearances from current and former members of Spawn Of Possession, Obscura, Inferi, Augury, and Elderoth, artwork by Sam Nelson (Incandescence, Wayfarer, Stoic Dissention) and boasts a fierce mix of over-the-top drum tirades, complex neoclassical-influenced guitar work, endless solos, Flamenco and clean guitar passages, proggy death metal bass work and a highly varied dual vocal approach.

Relays First Fragment guitarist/vocalist Phil Tougas of Dasein: "While a lot of the material on this record dates back to between six and eleven years, it is still very fresh sounding. It's an unrelenting and over-the-top album, yet at the same time most of it remains catchy enough to stick in your head. Dasein should satisfy most people into the newer wave of extreme technical metal, but the exaggerated amount neoclassical metal/flamenco influences and non-stop guitar/bass soloing alone should please power metal fans as well."

Spawned in 2007 as a bedroom side-project by rhythm guitarist Gabriel Brault-Pilon, vocalist/lead guitarist Philippe Tougas and lead vocalist David Alexandre Brault-Pilon, the Québécois trio evolved into a full-fledged band with the sole intention of creating the catchiest, most aggressive and multifarious music possible. Influenced by only the sickest modern extreme metal bands (Spawn Of Possession, Gorod, Martyr, Capharnaum, Origin, Necrophagist), ‘90s progressive death (Theory In Practice, Crypt Of Kerberos, Atheist, Cynic), Flamenco music and ‘80s neoclassical/power metal (Tony MacAlpine, Joey Tafolla, Racer X, Helstar, Yngwie Malmsteen) and being the only band from their country and in their subgenre to proudly sing solely in French, their diverse sound would quickly prove to be a force with which to be reckoned.

Following numerous demo recordings in 2008 and 2009, First Fragment self-released their highly-praised debut EP, The Afterthought Ecstasy, in 2010 and later recruited bassist Vincent Savary and drummer Philippe Boucher. The band played frequent shows throughout 2011 and 2012 and began putting the finishing touches on the material that would make its way on to their debut full-length. Soon after entering Humanoise Studios with Marcotte at the control desk however, Boucher fled the band. Not to be deterred, the remaining First Fragment members joined proverbial forces with session drummer Troy Fullert on of Severed Savior for the completion of the album.
