Fragmente aus dem Fließenden was recorded as of trees and orchids‘ debut release in 1998, following several years of preparation. The band was originally founded by Florian in 1995/1996 and the tracks on this album were the proverbial first attempt at walking. As a matter of fact, the creations on this record were inspired by In the Woods, My Dying Bride, old Emperor, Arcturus, Old Funeral and the likes. There are Death Metal grunts, screams, clean vocals, keys paired with an early joy of language and an atmosphere within the songs ranging from aggression to more mellow moments.
