fragments of god - new record, single, video, show

fragments of god is an experiment putting a number of local band veterans\record nerds together without pretense of what the outcome will be. if we were the music press we'd probably use such classic nonesensical words as krauty, shoegazy, gothy and trippy... why not take a spin and make your own mind...

the record was recorded with mikey allred at dark art audio where he's recorded records for the likes of interarma, hellbender, across tundras, and yautja just to name a few. produced by devin lamp (ascent of everest, evil bebos) with additional audio sorcery perpetrated at meltface studios the record features: an explosion of animalistic drumming on the part of siri dev (pujol, badcop), gothy driving distorted bass from mikey owen (little viking, badcop), a wash of shimming and screaming guitars from brandon highfill (noi, antarctica), and acid mother temple\spacemen3 inspired synths with surreal spacey vocals from devin lamp.

The Ascent of Everest OST for the Film: Devil's Damned to Try

The original soundtrack for the film "Devil's Damned to Try" is now availible on the meltface bandcamp site!

The album features original songs inspired by the film and the score composed by the Ascent of Everest. 



Also this coming Thurday Sept 19th @ The Belcourt Theater, Nashville TN is the official world premiere of Devil's Damned To Try, a short film by Marshall Burnette.

here's your official facebook invitation to the premiere!

'Devil’s Damned To Try' tells the story of an Appalachian man’s struggle to live a lie after making a brutal mistake. The film is told in two intertwining timelines revealing vital pieces of the puzzle until the final revelation. In one story, we follow our unnamed hero (or antihero) through his life as a saw mill worker in a small Tennessee town. His days are consumed with stalking a mother and her young son, and his nights with alcohol and regret. The man is haunted by something, something we have yet to witness. In the second story, we follow our hero through the thick winter forest as he searches for wild deer on a solo hunting trip. Burdened and disassembled by a dramatic situation at home, he begins to reveal his true being. The peaceful silence of the wilderness will become the man’s eternal torment.

Featuring: Riley Anglen, Laura Amond, Jake Arthur, Daniel De Armas, Angela Kerecz, and James DeForest Parker
