"It's the first time I personally listened to a full-length by Fragment King, the harsh brainchild by Mark Kammerbauer, out of his personal imprint Nexialist, and even if some features of his style, which combines ferociously hammered breakcore patterns with armour-piercing dark-industrial sonorities and some listenable sludge-metal and power electronics marks as well as sensibly vitriolic lyrics, is somehow recognasible, the sonic architecture sounds less naff than some past releases. Both its musical language and lyrics are definitively more focused on a precise target, which could be indolence, lassitude and defective human nature: you could almost imagine that an unsually bloody furious Metatron and some other cherubic mouthpiece, as this well-done release has been titled "Angel Position" I cannot but take an angel to discuss about it, came into possession of some electrically overcharged engine in order to remostrate against its half-assed user and enduring human pusillanimity, where roaring clanks and sometimes martial drumming seem to channel such a biomechanical clear-cut fury. Some songs ("Constellations", "Nullifier" or "Greater Than Man") sounds like absorbed by the same coruscating bruised frequency, while other ones ("Nullifier", "Statute" or "The squealing of the pigs") shows terser sonorities before Fragment King (or the above-mentioned Metatron) begins to kindle and melt the sonic blocks by meaningful lyrics and while the temperature inside FK's combustion chambers reaches its bursting point, the record sounds like blossoming on the final tracks ("Angel Position" and the entrancing "Kingdom") as if the seemingly exterminating angel wants to foster, all things considered, benevolent purposes. The cherry on top is the final "warhead Remix" of "Nullifier" by headbanging hardcore and d'n'b German producer Ralf "Bazooka" Ferley, who hijacked the original track towards contaminated neurotek and dubstep territories."
