Tetrafusion – Absolute Zero EP review

Tetrafusion – Absolute Zero EP (Independent Release)

The beginning of Tetrafusion is quite interesting, since the band, which is based out of Shreveport, Louisiana had the idea to be strictly into instrumental jazz music. Thankfully, their tastes were heavier and they finally decided to perform instrumental, Progressive Metal with a definite experimental mood. Their first EP was released before the end of 2008, in order to prepare the ground for their debut full-length.
Tetrafusion are quite innovative in their performance and a fine example of my sayings is the song “Gravity”, which begins with a catchy piano main theme and progresses into a fusion-istic creation, with wonderful, slightly doom-ish guitars that give a characteristic in the band’s sound. “Inertia” is maybe the most experimental track of all, with additional psych/doom and some electronic keyboard sound to be included. “Tetrafusion – The beginning” lasts 10 minutes and its quite interesting with its nice melodies which can transfer the listener to futuristic landscapes. I hope I made you understand that the band’s music is not for the faint of heart (he, he) and will be surely ideal for all fans of Scale The Summit and many other experimental bands. I definitely enjoyed their intelligent and totally creative art. Visit the band’s mySpace profile in order to learn how you can buy their stuff: Band’s website:
