SOLAR FRAGMENT
IN OUR HANDS
SCARLET

Solar Fragment is an upstart German power metal band whose latest offering IN OUR HANDS features a complimentary amalgamation of melody and bombast. While this quintet display ripping chops (“Come Hell or High Water”), many of their songs get stuck in second gear, rendering a predictable quagmire of power metal histrionics with a folksy edge (“Moana’s Return”) that is well executed yet a bit too reliant in remaining faithful to the restrictions of the genre to appeal to a broader base. Nonetheless, Solar Fragment demonstrates a winning combination of twin guitar duels and dramatic performance to garnish multiple spins from fans of Blind Guardian and the like (“The March of the Golems”).
