5.0 out of 5 stars Bombastic arena prog!
What a fantastic discovery; the album cover says it all - yes it is fantasy themed prog set in a mix of symphonic 70s and neo 80s; if this is your area of interest then you are definitely missing out. Very melodic and catchy, heavy in places, equal measures of keyboards and guitar, (with wonderful solo's) and well suited, (on occasions gruff), vocals. Only five tracks,...

3.0 out of 5 stars A rare thing, a sound of their own.
Fatal Fusion use old keyboard instruments (Hammond organ, Mellotrons), to help create that old feel sound, which they succeed in doing. The songs are good without being in anyway special. Indeed the songs and the playing of them makes reasonably easy listening. Old hat, well yes but what else can we ask of after most of this progressive music has all been done. But new...

Very melodic and catchy, heavy in places, equal measures of keyboards and guitar, (with wonderful solo's) and well suited, (on occasions gruff), vocals. Only five tracks, shortest being the softer 'Tears I've Cried' at just under nine minutes with two running around the 18 minute mark. Forty years ago this band would've been huge; think of a more proggy early Rainbow.

3.0 out of 5 stars A rare thing, a sound of their own., 3 May 2015

This review is from: The Ancient Tale (Audio CD)
Fatal Fusion use old keyboard instruments (Hammond organ, Mellotrons), to help create that old feel sound, which they succeed in doing. The songs are good without being in anyway special. Indeed the songs and the playing of them makes reasonably easy listening. Old hat, well yes but what else can we ask of after most of this progressive music has all been done. But new songs are always worth a listen, very melodic with the obligatory guitar solo at the end.

Please don't reach the wrong conclusions as the music is good and well done. In my star ratings three is OK if not great (4),or the last star rating of five for great to classic and will last the test of time. So put this into context in the rating chosen, it might not help the average but it's how I do the ratings.

The songs here make worthwhile listening and reach some very likable climaxes within and the end of the songs. If progressive music is your only thing then you will enjoy Fatal Fusion. The title track is well worth a download.
Their attention to try and sound seventies prog/Rock has worked to a large extent. One has to give them credit to not try and sound like yet another sound like band. Because these do have a sound of their own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy, brash, melodic, mystical! Prog Rock on a grand scale!, 14 April 2014

This review is from: The Ancient Tale (Audio CD)
This album is a lot of fun to listen to. Great production and superb musicianship. Five tracks covering over an hour, with the first 'City Of Zerych' coming in at just over 18 minutes. Loads of synth, guitar and percussion, with a decent solid vocal. It's like a slightly less frantic Dream Theater, with shades of Blackmore thrown in. This album is a blast - if you like melodic prog rock with a heavy twist, then this is for you! Recommended.
