Hailing from Manila, Philippines, rising metal act FRAGMENTS released a visual for their brand-new single ‘Heaven’s Gate’, featuring Kento Koshikawa, vocalist for Japan-based hardcore group FOAD.
“Our third release ‘Heaven’s Gate’ is about different religious cults that have existed through the years. The main title is taken from the Heaven’s Gate cult founded in 1974 by Marshall Applewhite, a deranged man who led a mass suicide of more than 39 people believing that a higher being is taking them through a UFO following the arrival of comet Hale-Bopp.
The lyrics tackle people who call themselves pure but have the same level of hypocrisy just like everyone else, as well as people who would worship anything delusional from an animal’s arse that they claim has their “savior”’s face in it to a ridiculous “divine” cloud formation.
Here at Fragments, we are not afraid to express our beliefs; calling out what we find is delusional such as religious extremists.”
