Fraktions Announce New EP ‘Anguish’

British tech-metal outfit Fraktions have announced their new EP, Anguish, will be out 8/12. In celebration of the news, they’ve released a new video for their track “Freedom of the Conscious Mind”. Preorders are available for the EP now.

Anguish is a highly compelling new release from a band equally influenced by classical music, the jazz noodlings of Tigran Hamasyan and the progressive metal of TesseracT and The Contortionist; Fraktions are an exciting addition to the burgeoning second wave British tech-metal scene.

Having played alongside Drewsif Stalin, No Consequence (whose frontman features on the EP),Kadinja, and Bleed from Within, Anguish is a irresistible new take on technical metal. Inspired by songwriter and pianist Joel Pinder’s classical leanings, the EP presents an impressively mature approach from such a young band.

A concept EP, Anguish is about the final chapter of a schizophrenic woman’s life. The protagonist suffers from aural hallucinations as a result, a condition translated musically into the EP’s frantic and unpredictable style, veering between piano-led dissonance and guitar-led technical off-kilter riffing. The multiple sound-worlds of the EP mark Fraktions out as a band to take notice of – a young group with a promising future ahead of them.
