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.
