Album Notes
...Based out of Michigan......... a blasting ProTools-engineered 10 tracks industrial metal record that finally kicks some ass!!! Their self-produced and self-released "Amplified Fragments" brings you electro sequencing with dance stylings, pounding industrial rhythms, gothic pad melodies and most importantly a huge compressed crunchy distorted wall of sound of electric guitars. You may go right ahead and compare them to early KMFDM, some Ministry, definitely a lot of Headcrash (for the usage of guitars), and most definitely Die Krupps, Alien Sex Fiend and others. It is safe to say that these guys have the talent and the right cards to become major players in the electro-metal scene, where lack of fresh and original material has been taking over in the past few years. I have been looking for a new powerful abrasive aggro-industrial group for a while and I may just have found it with FIREWERK..."
-Marc Urselli-SchŠrer, Chain

"Let's cut to the chase here people, 'Amplified Fragments' is one of the best releases of 2001, no lie. VERY blown away. The production value is stellar, the programming rowdy, the power chords abundant, the vocals 100% compatible. Did I mention power chords? 'Sadistic' is just down and dirty dampening and raunchy fretboard mischief. The samples, reminiscent of the ol' school Stigmata days of Grandpa Jourgensen. What really sold me on this 10 track fabricated disc was 'Kingdom'. Just fantastic. While the lyrics provides a well-deserved slam on Catholicism, the beat alternates between happy synth motif and cranky power chords. Sweet. Another great track is' Work' which is more of the same. That's not to say it's all guitar haven, they do have tracks where the synth is the primary driver - readily apparent on 'Hypecrash' and 'Pharmacy'. Few industrial bands do the heavy-handed guitar thing anymore, Firewerk is one of those rare exceptions and they come off fresh and new. Hey, don't overlook these guys. Stop by their website and drop 'em a line, they always answer. They do need a big honkin' record label so they can tour though. And guitar tabs. They need guitar tabs."

to write a review


awesome cd! very clean production
I saw these guys play at the Hamtramck blowout and they totally caught my ear. Bought the CD 2 days later, and I absolutely love it! It's been *years* since I've listened to this kind of music, and Firewerk totally hit the spot!!


great stuff
this cd is simply extraordinary, it almost brought a tear to my eye when i first heard it...this is a must have cd


something wrong
If these guys aren't signed- they should be by now!


This is GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This has to be one of the best Cd's I have heard in a long time!! It has everything! A unique vocalists, great riffs, provacative lyrics and the list goes on... Do yourself a favour and buy now!!!

80's industry girl

WOW! Makes me want to go back to my younger days!!
I am an 80's industry music club girl. This cd makes me want to go back to "Starz" in Louisiana where this was the norm in music. I miss the good ol' days and this is one hell of a way to reminence!

john eye

great songs ala mind is a terrible thing to taste era ministry
well crafted heavy danceable songs. Reminds me of my favorite era of ministry (mind is a terrible thing to taste) mixed with some up to date production ideas.


Perfect "driving home from work" music!
Right from the opening track, I knew I would love this disc...infectious riffs over a killer beat. Industrial fans MUST check this one out!


Great band
this is one of my favorite bands now, i never heard a band this good since KMFDM i must say you have to get this cd

Jon Graham

Great CD!
Outstanding. This is really a solid CD. The style seems to blend the likes of KMFDM,older NIN, and others to create a really cool sound and great CD from start to finish.


awesome! a band that sticks to the basics but yet has their own flare, and damn the keys on this album are great. proving industrial/metal is still alive and kicking, pick this album up! rocks \m/
