PHRAGMENTS























"all towers must fall"
Year:    2016
Country:    Slovakia
City:    Bratislava
Format:    CD , LP
Tracks:    6
Time:    45 min.
Genre:    electronic
Style:          Industrial          Ambient














The all new, fifth full-length album of Phragments is unmistakably dark ambient in nature, yet the overall feeling of the songs is more industrial this time. Moving a step further into harsher territory, "All Towers Must Fall" brings together dark ambience, heavily treated field recordings, classical instruments and also analogue synths, all echoing with orchestral grandeur. Phragments still follow a rather abstract and minimalist path, but this time the compositions have a touch of subtle chaos. With the atmosphere ranging from brooding to menacing, “All Towers Must Fall” is a gripping journey through desolate darkness, a gaze into the endless abyss. The release is presented on black vinyl, housed in a beautifully designed vinyl jacket. Limited to 250 copies.

My favourite album of all Phragment´s discography whithout doubt. There are like always strong influences from ambient and neo classical music. But the difference is that here  many times the general sound becomes distorted and appears noise in differents forms. Excelent.
