"Fragment Factory are proud to present a solo album from veteran Swedish artist Leif Elggren. Skirting both the area of pure sound, as well as that of symbolism, the record is a powerful statement on the limits of social and political absurdity and corruption in our present time.

'Das Baank' is notable for the absence of its creator's voice, as the sound of Elggren's characteristic spoken word is nowhere to be found. Instead the music traverses between carefully paced dramatic musical passages, and sections of pure and often confrontational noise. Opener 'DasB1' features a haunting chorus of ghostly voices submerged within a quasi-orchestral movement, whereas each track that follows mostly goes deeper into industrial-sounding territories that provide an antithesis as well as an exhilarating liberation from the shackles of established normality and complacency.

Elggren here takes on the issues of repression, violence, fear and power; the tracks are generically named but each is notable for its clarity and lucidness, and their focus on individual sound-worlds sees a direct correlation to the importance their author sees in each singular being against the greater absurdities we face. Its deeply philosophical stance makes this album an imperative appeal for our times."-Fragent Factory
