Song of the Week: Fragore – Resurrection Nemesis

I’ve really taken a fancy to Fragore after hearing just a few tracks from the debut full-length album, The Reckoning. This is no-nonsense, crisp, immensely catchy groove death metal. It is uncomplicated, played by just three guys from Italy. They combine to produce top-class metal stripped of any frivolous adornments. What you get is irresistible riffs, pulse-driving bass, tight and expert drumming and perfectly moderated vocals. If I’m going  a little overboard, blame it on the music. I love it. I call it all-day music.

The band has been around in different shapes and forms for quite a few years. The line-up has almost completely changed from what it was at the outset. For The Reckoning, Fragore is made up of Davide Nunziante on vocals and guitars, Alessandro Baronetto on drums and Andrea Lorenti on bass.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
