NEWS: Fragmentum play with Quirigua Successors…

A continuation of the Mayan themes explored in the band’s 2021 concept album “Masters of Perplexity“, Belgian Melodic Dark Metal act Fragmentum have premiered a new cut titled “Quirigua Successors”. Founded by Jan Bruggeman and Gunnar Nopens who are accompanied on stage by Wouter Macaré (drums) and Ozzy Voskuilen (bass), the band has been described as a hybrid of Depeche Mode and In Flames, featuring melodies, synths and ambient sounds combined with heavy riffs and crushing grooves. That description maybe a little loose but what isn’t is the fact that the band have shared stages with  Children of Bodom, Swallow the Sun, Wolfheart, Soulfly and Annihilator no less…

Guitarist and vocalist Jan Bruggeman comments on the single: “’Quirigua Successors’ is a song about a Mayan clan that endured, but survived Clash Of The Clans and Feast Of The Flesh, as described in our previous album Masters Of Perplexity. The album ends with ‘Secrets Of The Stones,’ like extinguished Maya settlements do, but the Quirigua people are a strong and smart clan. Will they reveal these secrets and who knows what else the future brings for them?”
