First Fragment – Dasein Noyan May 3, 2016 Reviews What's it about Canada that causes them to have excellent tech death bands? First Fragment is yet another one in the string of such bands, and they definitely live up to the stereotype. Their debut album Dasein, five years in the making, was anticipated quite a bit by those who had listened to their excellent EP The Afterthought Ecstasy. Playing in the lines of greats like Gorod, Beyond Creation and Beneath the Massacre, the band's debut album is an instant classic. Full of over the top melodic technical playing, Dasein is a joy to listen through and through.
