Fragile Existence / Press

“Local Torontonians, Fragile Existence, opened up the night at the Annex Wreckroom with a lot of energy and good humour. Vocalist/Guitarist Dan Glover had a suave, cocky attitude as he entertained himself and the fans present in-between songs. Fragile Existence played a fast paced set that got concert goers pumped up for the bands to come. With lyrics ranging from politics to aliens, they definitely put on a show that got more than a few interested nods of appreciation.”

“... these Canadians come strong in the underground scene with a terrific first pitch.”

“Last night was a brutal fuckin’ night down at The Annex WreckRoom in Toronto, just on the edge of Koreatown. The line-up was surprisingly much more diverse than I had originally thought, but incredible nonetheless, with local band Fragile Existence delivering old school death metal in the vein of Deicide or early Death, Nero Di Marte pummeled with a droning mix of progressive metal and subtle hardcore, in what turned out to be their very first Canadian performance, Origin got literally the entire crowd crowd-surfing and moshing, with frontman Jason Keyser echoing Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe in terms of stage presence, and Gorguts gave the fans a treat by playing their latest record “Coloured Sands” in full, as well as a few oldies for a massive encore. Definitely a brutal night, woke up this morning with bruises across my back and a wicked headache. \m/”

“...fast-paced death metal, with a pleasing combination of rapidly slamming riffs and spinning guitar solos.”

“There are still many words to describe what was done by these guys as old school but at the same time innovative, in short, one of those jewels that occasionally gives us underground, but this time has been exceeded. Groovy and melodic guitars... accompanied by a growl powerful and varied.... Varied and creative song writing, as I said is based on an original proposal that brings together many elements itself without making them seem discordant. Excellent ability to make catchy songs and at the same time complex and not progressive steps that come with high-technique. [translated from Italian]”

“Fragile Existence was without a doubt the band of the night.”

“Toronto’s metal scene never stops amazing me, old school and new school alike. This time around, it pulls the best out of the mid to late 1990’s death metal era under the form of Fragile Existence.”
