The Burden Remains was founded in 2010, when the thrash metal band Cideraid decided to change their name due to a massive advancement through the years. Nowadays the fourpiece is way more than a simple thrash metal combo. The Burden Remains enriched their creation with a lot more psychodelic and modern metal elements and let them perfectly melt together with their past influencies. As result they build a musicial sea for listeners which makes them wanna steep to discover new levels again and again. 'Fragments' is an album lyrically divided in four acts as a human protagonist contemplates his individuality, spirals towards isolation, collapses along with his world view, and finally capitulates under the weight of these revelations. Musically the band is making a stand between the modern elements of it's debut album 'Downfall Of Man' and the spontaneous approach on the ´The Bikini Blues-Sessions'-EP. The basics of 'Fragments' were recorded live at Blend Studio / Lutry. Mixing and mastering took place in the beginning of 2014 at the hands of Raphaël Bovey (Abraham, Zatokrev, Impure Wilhelmina).
