4 stars For the recent years now Norway is pumping out a plethora of very good groups and FATAL FUSION was no exception. On their debut CD 'Land Of The Sun' (2010) this five-piece covers a varied assortment of styles: classic hard-rock and neo-prog, funk and latino, space and jazz, blues and classical music. Just try to imagine a melting pot of Atomic Rooster, classic Deep Purple, early Marillion, psychedelic traits of Pink Floyd, at times - Carlos Santana and King Crimson, and you should understand the approach of Fatal Fusion. Skillfully balancing with tempos, fusing the loud elements and gentle ingredients, using delicious guitar playing and vintage keyboards (Hammond, Moog, Mellotron), raging bass and drums, these Norse went out to reveal a quite unique progressive product. Sure, the great asset to band's originality lies in ability of singer Knut Erik Grøntvedt to combine his bluesy timbre with a bitter-sweet performance. Each of the 7 cuts on the album has a style of its own, whilst maintaining an organic cohesion. Impressive stuff, indeed. So.. I just hope that my brief comment will induce some additional interest in what FF are doing.
