Out of weighted gloom


Band: DREAMS IN FRAGMENTS
Base: Switzerland
Genre: Melodic Dark Metal
Title: Reflections Of A Nightmare
Format: Album
Label: Rockshots
Release: June 28, 2019


Founded in early 2017, these motivated Swiss soon found their own style:
MELODIC DARK METAL.

DREAMS IN FRAGMENTS are a very profound artist association that sounds like a healthy pursuit of serious music.

The equally imaginative and soulful four-piece, consisting of lead vocalist Seraina Schoepfer, guitarist Chris Geissmann, bassist Jan Thomas and drummer Frank Fritschi, comes from the otherwise quiet town of Wangen near Olten between Basel, Bern and Zurich.

Due to their musical appearance, DREAMS IN FRAGMENTS have already been compared to popular formations like Nightwish or Delain.

However, the participants have no reason whatsoever to present themselves in the genre as a cover band, which merely plays the songs of the big, established success models.

Since the end of June DREAMS IN FRAGMENTS present the sonorous debut album "Reflections Of A Nightmare" to the world of heavy and longing sounds.

Seraina's completely natural, pleasantly unadulterated used voice, often subtly operetta-like and yet light as a feather, co-acts on "Reflections Of A Nightmare" in well balanced manner with Chris's beastly growl.

This type of performance differentiates the band from the mass of competitors in the same way it does the union of hard guitar riffs and gorgeous orchestrations.
