Bandcamp at: http://fatalfusion.bandcamp.com/album/total-absence

With “Total Absence” FATAL FUSION are showing their darker side, on an album that is filled with epic melodies that range from the exotic to the wistful. There is no doubt that FATAL FUSION owes much to the great prog bands of the 70’s, but the band’s use of hard rock, classical music, jazz, psychedelia and Latin ensures that their sound is uniquely their own.
Adding to the band’s uniqueness is the way in which FATAL FUSION’s lineup of Erlend Engebretsen on Keyboards, Lasse Lie on Bass, Audun Engebretsen on Drums/Percussion, Stig Selnes on Guitar, and Knut Grøntvedt on Vocals make use of “classical” rock instruments such as vintage synths, Mellotron and Hammond, organ along with the more usual instruments one would expect to hear today.

Tracklisting for the seven-track album as follows:

1. The Gates of Ishtar
2. Shadow of the King
3. Forgotten One
4. Astral Flight
5. The Emperor’s Letter
6. Endless Ocean Blue
7. Total Absence

FATAL FUSION pays homage to the great progressive rock bands of the 70’s, whilst at the same time ensuring that the band’s sound remains unique, with its mix of hard rock, classical music, jazz, psychedelia and Latin. The lineup of Erlend Engebretsen on Keyboards, Lasse Lie on Bass, Audun Engebretsen on Drums/Percussion, Stig Selnes on Guitar, and Knut Grøntvedt on Vocals makes use not only of the standard rock instruments familiar to audiences today, but also of what are now considered to be “classical” rock instruments such as vintage synths, Mellotron and Hammond organ.

The band is currently busy rehearsing, ready to hit the stage. Confirmed dates so far include a show at the Buddy Scene in Drammen on the 10th November, which will see the band performing songs from their previous two releases “Land of the Sun” and “The Ancient Tale” as well as debuting new material . The release concert for “Total Absence” will take place at the John Dee in Oslo on the 26th January.

KARISMA RECORDS RELEASES SOPHOMORE ALBUM FROM FATAL FUSION ON VINYL

cover - Fatal Fusion

Having released FATAL FUSION’s sophomore album “The Ancient Tale” in CD and digital versions in November of last year, KARISMA RECORDS are now set to please lovers of vinyl and Classical Prog Rock by releasing the album as a double gatefold edition.

The five-track album was produced by the band themselves with some additional help from Karisma Records and ENSLAVED’s Herbrand Larsen.

Track listing as follows:
I. City of Zerych
II. Halls of Amenti
III. The Divine Comedy
IV. Tears I’ve Cried
V. The Ancient Tale

Reaction to “The Ancient Tale”, which is a follow up to the band’s first full-length album “Land of the Sun”, which won the Prog Awards “Best Debut Album of 2010”, shows that FATAL FUSION is a band with a wide appeal that is not limited to Prog fans alone, paying homage as it does to the greats of Rock and Prog from the 70´s such as Genesis, Camel, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Rainbow.

FATAL FUSION’s distinctive sound comes from a blending of elements from different musical genres, including Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz, Latin, Space Rock, Classical Music and above all Progressive Rock. Add to this the band’s use of classical instruments, synths, mellotron and hammond organ, and it is easy to understand how the lineup of Audun Engebretsen (drums), Erlend Engebretsen (keyboards), Knut Erik Grøntvedt (vocals), Lasse Lie (bass) and Stig Selnes (guitars) is able to create such varied soundscapes.

“Halls of Amenti”, a track from “The Ancient Tale”, can be heard at SoundCloud , and the vinyl and CD versions of the album are available direct from Karisma Records and from all the usual retailers.
