STELLAR DEATH will release their debut album, Fragments of Light, in early 2021.
Featuring eight instrumental tracks that traverse a vast and richly diverse musical landscape, Fragments of Light takes the listener on a challenging, yet rewarding journey. The album blends elements of prog rock, post metal and emotive ambiance for a sonic experience like none other.
Fragments of Light is set for release on January 8, 2021.
The concept for the songs and album began in the Fall of 2019. Scott and Matt began to focus more on the development of instrumental music outside of the typical song structures and trappings. Through the Fall and Winter of 2019/2020, the songs and ideas kept coming back to their inspiration from the vast, cold, violent, and chaotic universe through which we are all traveling, seemingly unaware.
The album provides a journey from the initial countdown-like and metronomic riffing of “The Astronomer,” which ascends into the maelstrom as the listener journeys deeper into the cosmos. As the album progresses, the voyage delves into the calm and serene vastness of space, while managing through the ever-changing turbulent and destructive forces that exist throughout.
