Not Fragile  


Not Fragile is one of those second-division workmanlike bands, not destined for any great fame but content to ride the wave of good old fashioned heavy metal. They've been around for some twenty years, debutting back in 1988 on the tiny British label Metalother Records with Who Dares Wins (the only album reviewed here). It's pretty standard for the day, that being energetic speed metal (not quite thrash), with a rather thin production. Over the years they've gone through several lineup changes surrounding vocalist/guitarist Torsten Buczko, but they keep motoring along, and in 2007 released their ninth album, Scratch The Surface.
