On April, 4th "Sterling Black Icon", the third full length release from Fragments of Unbecoming, will hit the streets.
Comments guitarist Sascha Ehrich: "Sterling Black Icon, the 3rd chapter in the history of Fragments of Unbecoming, takes us miles of steps closer to the sophistication of the characteristic song writing we've ever been standing for and nevertheless believe in: 'Swedish Styled Death Metal' (from Tyskland by the way). With a new 5th face (Sam Anetzberger) on the front, we finally could play with a more variable double vocal performance that highly enriches every single song. We are proud announcing that the entire material got catchier and much more melodic but not less aggressive! One hook line peruses the next, one twin melody drifts into another - beauties and beasts never were that close to each other!"
The production of Sterling Black Icon went out great due to the excellent mix and mastering work of Christoph Brandes at the Iguana Studios (e.g. Necrophagist, etc.). The artwork and packaing was done in cooperation with Niklas Sundin and Groundfrost.
Here is the track list for Sterling Black Icon:
1. Carmine Preface (Entrance)
2. Sterling Black Icon
3. Weave Their Barren Path
4. Dear Floating Water
5. Breathe In The Black To See
6. Ride For a Fall
7. A Faint Illumination
8. Live For The Moment, Stay ´Til The End
9. Scythe Of Scarecrow
10. Onward To The Finger Of God
11. Stand The Tempest
12. Chambre Noire (Departure)

A brandnew Sylphony Creations homepage will be online very soon. So far, you can download track samples of both bands on their homepages:
Orders, interest in reviewing or interviewing the bands can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

Fragments of Unbecoming has posted the following message on the band's official website:
Sam Anetzberger, our current vocalist, who originally joined the band to become the exclusive frontman/main shouter (besides Stefan, as everyone knows), won’t be able to become a full time member of the band due to his studies and being a permanent member of the band Legacy. We had already foreseen we would have to make this decision one day. With the upcoming recording sessions in mind, we definitely need someone working with us on an exclusive basis. Therefore we now need a powerful frontman and we are excited to get someone entirely new into the band. The ideal candidate should be committed to shows, practices, and forthcoming recordings, and must have a great stage presence. We are not necessarily looking for someone who sounds exactly like Sam, but it should obviously be an extreme vocalist to fit our music perfectly.
If YOU are interested, please get in touch as soon as possible:
via mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Sam will continue helping us out until the right person is found and worked in to be able to perform live on stage. Anyway, we deeply thank Sam for his engagement and friendship! We also wish to thank our brothers in Legacy for their patience.
