Schwarzes Fragment tries to combine the music styles electro, darkwave and EBM a.s.o. The lyrics of Schwarzes Fragment are mostly a kind of poems.
Schwarzes Fragment music consists of classic orchestral instruments combined with dark vocals and electronic, melodic synthesizer sounds and drifting basses. Schwarzes Fragment takes attention to melodic and catchy songs which are easy to dance to.
If it sounds like sex between strings, synthesizers, drifting basses and e-drums combined with poems, than it’s Schwarzes Fragment.
