Ready for Fatal Smile?
Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1995, and already armed with a solid 2002 debut (Beyond Reality), Fatal Smile now boasts Tomas Lindberg on drums, along with co-founder guitarist Y, bass player Markus Johansson and vocalist HB Anderson.
Produced by Jonas Ostman (Yngwie Malmsteen) and mixed by Stefan Glaumann (Rammstein), its 10 tracks boast a melodic Hard Rock sense of pure glam. Refined by excessive touring, Fatal Smile has come back strong on this sophomore release. A stateside show at the 2003 New Jersey Metal Meltdown proved pivotal as the band was embraced for its over-the-top showmanship and dedicated chops. Stateside audiences from New Jersey to Florida saw more when Fatal Smile performed 16 shows in 21 days shortly thereafter.
