The Afterthought Ecstasy

by First Fragment

Humppastara thumbnail
Humppastara In contrast to their full length debut, this EP crystallizes the essence of tech death in a magnificent but not overly-lengthy and flashy fashion. Favorite track: Quintessential Rebirth.
Ippocalyptica thumbnail
Ippocalyptica Dasein is an unbelievably refined, eye-popping, and ear-gasmic piece of technical melodic death metal, but what The Afterthought Ecstasy lacks in overall elegance is more than compensated for by its sheer swagger and boldness. If you like Archspire, Spawn of Possession, Inferi, and other such bands, you should love this! First Fragment is oddly overlooked by fans of death metal and I will never understand why. Tougas is a genius. Favorite track: The Afterthought Ecstasy.
