Fragments of Unbecoming

Fragments of Unbecoming is a melodic death metal band from Laudenbach, Germany. Started in August 2000 as the project of Mortified guitarist Sascha Ehrich and Venereal Disease guitarist Stefan Weimar. The musical direction was soon decided upon, with inspiration being drawn mainly from the early Swedish Death Metal sound. Within a short time span the idea of a project was discarded, they were turn into a “real” band.

Their first full-length album was recorded in the fall of 2003, once again at Stellwerk Studio, with production duties being shared by the band and Stefan Hahnbuch. The offering bears the title “Skywards – A Sylphe’s Ascension” and even surpasses the already high expectations: a Brutal yet dynamic and Melodic Death Metal record. In 2006, the band released their sophomore album, “Sterling Black Icon – Chapter III – Black But Shining.” Their third album “Everhaunting Past – Chapter IV – A Splendid Retrospection” was release in 2008. The band’s guitarist Sascha Ehrich is also a renowned artist in the metal world, having designed album covers for bands such as Necrophagist. The band’s name was taken from the lyrics for the Edge of Sanity song “Darkday”.
