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
Upcoming shows for FATAL FUSION:
