Edit Fragmenta formed in with original members Duncan Fisher on guitar and vocals, Zac Backs on second guitar, Mike Ward on bass and Cameron Hynd in the original lineup. Fragmenta is credited as being ever evolving with further experimentation in each release. The band then functioned as a three piece for it's interstate tours to promote Sedition. In mid Fragmenta recorded a demo entitled Merchants of Doom released as a single.
It received moderate airplay and appeared on the compilation Downtown Metal released internationally from Baltimore label Quickstar Productions. Damien Rompapas now named Uesugi replaced Stretton on drums. Most notably were deaths of family and friends of the band and Duncan Fisher's despondency. After having announced several times they had been working on new material for the last year, the band finally announced the start of the tracking process which was also mentioned in press.
The band experimented further with unusual instruments including the use of a balalika on Hi-Tech, Low Life. Former members Backs and Ward briefly joined again on guitar and bass respectively.
The new lineup marked Fragmenta's return to the stage and the recording process of their first studio album. Fragmenta uses samples, synths and layers of noises and unorthodox percussion, often carried to live shows to create accompany their music with cinematic soundscapes. Reviewers have noted the album's darker sound, technical perfomances and production.
