Fanatism from Stockholm, Sweden are part of the same collective that spawned the psych improve bunch Kungens Män. You will meet Fanatism somewhere on the crossroads between Stooges Street, Can Road and Morricone Avenue. The Future Past is their debut album, and now they are back with the album Inverted Evolution.
The second album from Swedish psychonauts Fanatism. The eagerly awaited follow up to their rather fantastic 2018 debut, The Future Past, delivers and then some. It is a record that refuses to be defined by one genre or style but instead simply highlights the amount of talent and musical tastes this close-knit group of friends bring to the table.
With a core element of the band being heavily involved in other modern Scandinavian psych bands (namely Kungens Män, Automatism and Eye Make The Horizon) it is audibly obvious that these guys are clearly comfortable riffing off and improvising with each other. Inverted Evolution is both a natural progression away from and a companion piece to its mighty fine predecessor.
