4 stars Not so often you can find such an interesting work between post-metal debuts! Combining post-rock, metal and heavy fusion elements, this band is showing their fresh and energizing sound from very first song.

With accent on mood, atmosphere and technical musicianship, this album wouldn't destroy your ears with tons of heavy stereotype noise. Even being real metal band, sound is elegant and acoustic. You will hear instruments, breaks, melodies, not overpower.

Musically strongly connected with acts as Derek Sherinian, LTE or some guitar-heroes as Joe Satriani, band 's music isn't stepped too far on post-metal territory. All-instrumental album, having some fresh sounds and musical constructions, in fact is modern version of progressive metal more than post-metal band. You will listen this collection of great compositions without being bored.

It's interesting, than the band announced they are recording new album with vocalist this time! Could be really interesting work. I would like to recommend this album for all fans of instrumental prog metal as one of the most interesting debuts and one of great new band's album, released in 2009.

The production is sharp, and the music is extremely tight and clean. There are a variety of differ ... (read more)

4 stars In the past couple years it's become increasingly difficult to find good instrumental music, let alone good music in general. But, Tetrafusion's debut album, Absolute Zero, could change that. Absolute Zero is definitely one of the best albums of the year?despite the lack of a singer. The album ... (read more)
