Biography

There are at least four bands using name “Fragment” (Croatian, Swiss, British, and US), and there is also a Serbian rapper named Fragment.

Croatian

The story began in 2001, in Zagreb Croatia, when Slaven Nikolic (guitar), Davor Vlahov (vocal/guitar) and Darko Demsic-Rudi (bass), together with Vedran Hadziselimovic (drums) formed heavy/progressive band R2 (named after famous Star Wars character R2-D2). They recorded a 5track demo named “Given Away”, (review of that demo can be found on web page: www.cmar-net.org ). Soon after that they stopped playing together.

In autumn of year 2002, together with their new drummer Neven Nikolic they formed band Fragment. They continued to work on their new material (some songs from R2 stage were also included in their repertoire), but because of lack of keyboardist, were unable for playing live. That changed in the very end of same year when Vedran Hrgetic joined them as keyboardist and completed Fragment’s line-up. At that point, they were searching for their own music style and combined various music elements and influences. They had several concerts during 2003. in and around Zagreb.
In 2004. They finished material for their very first album called “The Masquerade”. During this period they developed their own style that can be described as heavy metal empowered with rhythmical riffs and periodic progressive influence. Main influences on the band were made by: Masterplan, Helloween, Iron Maiden, Dark Tranquillity and progressive bands like Dream Theater, Symphony X, Ark…

    Finally, a meshuggah like band that doesn't fuck it up, unfortunately, they sound a bit too much like meshuggah.
