Fragment Of Reality - Demo 1998

Here's yet another demo I picked up from Alain RPP's amazing distro, at a show in Belgium in the summer of 1998. At that time, in the late 90s, there were a ton of bands in France that followed in the footsteps of French bands like Stormcore, Drowning, Kickback and Trapped In Life, playing hard and heavy metalcore. Fragment Of Reality from the Nantes area is no exception. Stylistically the band has a lot in common with the KDS crew bands from Rennes, just north of Nantes. Especially A Way Of Life comes to mind, altho they never quite reach that level of awesomeness. Still, this is a great demo with some awesome riffs. The lyrics are fairly simplistic tho, but don't sweat it, even with the lyrics sheet it's difficult to follow them anyways, hah.

Aside from this demo they appeared on a couple of compilations, I don't think this band released anything else. Band members moved on to bands like Right 4 Life, Slamface, Nantes Resilience, Die Die Die and Tromatized Youth.

Hey man, so I saw you posted years ago the Driven tape pre-blood has been shed, the link is dead but I was wondering if you can get it up again and link it. My father was the guitarest for Driven and BHBS all the way to 2000 and I want to get it on a CD for him.
