Album Notes
Fanatism from Stockholm, Sweden are part of the same collective that spawned the psych improv bunch Kungens Män. Fanatism started out in 2013 after Switch Opens, the previous progressive heavy rock band of guitarist Tomas Bergstrand and bassist/guitarist Mikael Tuominen, was put to rest. They wanted to do something more primitive, straight forward and psychedelic and soon recruited the synth player Peter Erikson and the jazzy drummer Jonas Yrlid. Towards the end of the recording sessions for the album free jazz player Gustav Nygren added tenor saxophone on a few tracks, and soon joined the band also as an additional guitar player.

You will meet Fanatism somewhere on the crossroads between Stooges Street, Can Road and Morricone Avenue. “The Future Past” is their debut album.

"It’s hard to put my finger on exactly why I like this Fanatism album so much. This is because it is made up of such an eclectic set of of tracks that seem to range from jazz to post-punk, and many points beyond and between. What brings them together is sense of power and purpose that really drives these songs forward."

- Psych Insight

"The variety contained within makes it a real smorgasbord of delights…the way it trips from motorik based krautrock to more pastoral psych and finishing with some retro synth sounds is truly wonderful and goes to make this an album of many dimensions… a trait that is sadly missing in so much music these days"

- Dayz Of Purple & Orange

"The Future Past is the debut-album by space-rockers Fanatism, who has mysteriously found a way to harness the ancient powers that resides within the Swedish woods and channel it through vast, sonic structures that unites decades of psychedelic wizardry and interplanetary travels for your aural entity to absorb. But fear not, these guys are no newcomers to the mysteries of the universe (at the helm you’ll find warlocks spawned from Kungens Män) and has through multiple incarnations been obtaining the wisdom and abilities to wield their powers with just the right amount of moderation to avoid your brain from overheating. Eclectic interstellar overdrive, folks. Bring astral attention!"
