Serbian Progressive / Power metal band A|Symmetry released their first full-length album "Fragility". Following successful EP “Room 17: Hours Between Shadows and Light” (2012), "Fragility" is a conceptual story fragmented to 9 songs in total length of 50 minutes of genuine progressive/power metal music with powerful vocals, complex arrangements and strong rhythm section.
Album features guest appearance of Linus Abrahamson (Andromeda, Edge Of A Circle, Metal Station, Nonexist) on lead and acoustic guitars, as well as Dusan Djuric Svilokos (Trigger) and Johan Reinholdz (Andromeda, Nonexist, Skyfire) on solo guitars.
“Fragility was a bit of a temptation for all five of us. Main idea came from a song called ‘Aral Sea’ of the band Burning Circle we share members with. Idea was to broaden a concept and tell a fictional story about fate of a man from Aralsk whose life shared same destiny with dying lake (Aral Sea). It is a musical and lyrical journey that describes a fate of millions of people trapped in a world ruled by dictators, corruption, twisted forms of leadership, malfunctions of society, wars, as well as a critique of both ‘Eastern’ and ‘Western’ way of life. It is also a story about tremendous effect of men on environment and horrible things that mankind does to nature.
We’re sure that album will be warmly welcomed by progressive and power metal fans, but also by people with different musical taste, from hard rock to death metal, since this album has all of that! This album is a huge tribute to all music we love and we are sure that listeners will recognize it.”
states A|symmetry’s front-man Aleksandar Stojkovic.
The album is available through digital platforms such as Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, etc. Physical CD release will be available soon.
