Fragments (EP)

Fragments by Shattered Destiny
Released: Feb 2012
Label: Rock Chuvak
Between their lady bassist and (since departed) drummer from Fates Warning and thin-voiced singer who could pass for a moonlighting pop punk, this is not your typical U.K. prog-thrash band. Sometimes that's good; sometimes not. Keyboardist JJ's vocals turn intriguingly goth when they get nasal, but he's more inclined to bark with forced James Hetfield intensity; the guitars can moon gloomily or shred fancily or opt for weird Piggy-of-Voivod squeaks, and "Oblivion" sounds both triumphant and complex, as power ballads go. But more than these four songs in 24 minutes might be difficult to take.
