FRAKTIONS proudly present "Aftermath"; a new single to close this chapter of the band as a progressive metal quintet.
Aftermath was originally intended to be released as part of EP II, and a track that we played live at all of our 2017 summer gigs including UK Tech-Metal Fest. It is a song we are proud of and wanted to release despite the sudden departure of both our guitarists earlier this year.
J / W / R
Dare to question the powerful
Together we defy anger and torment to extinguish the perpetual flames of hate.
As the sirens deafen we evacuate
The chaos and confusion of our sanctuary
Lurking in the darkness, misguided enemies
When we overcome revenge compassion prevails.
So spread your wings and sail towards me again
You exist in the pieces you left behind
Trapped between revival and the abyss
Oblivious to consequence
Abuse to survive
Consume the mind
Manipulate, entice and sedate
Seduction through fear
Deception as a career
Absorbing loss, the impossible battle
Within the carnage of the aftermath
Emerges misdirected hatred
Awakening shadows of violent intent
Detonating the fragile and faint
Some lights shone so bright they tore a hole in the sky
Some minds so hypnotised they tore a hole in the earth
The few do not represent the thousand
