Echoes is a two hour work of epic proportions; full of beauty, energy, haunting passages and stunning musicianship, embracing progressive rock, contemporary avantgarde, cosmic free jazz, ethnic experimentalism and more.

Now in its 14th year, the unique and constantly evolving Fire! Orchestra is back with their most ambitious work sofar, counting a mostly Scandinavian – with a heavy French infusion – cast of no less than 17 members.
While the popular and widely praised Arrival is a highlight in the band ́s catalogue, this monumental version building on triple album “ECHOES” ups the ante. Recorded at the legendary Atlantis studio in Stockholm and beautifully mixed by Jim O’Rourke, Echoes comes across as a very open, breathing, organic, detailed and dynamic album.
Making all of this flow in such a natural way from beginning to end is a brilliant achievement. With roots in many different creative music outfits this version of Fire! Orchestra will turn everything upside down in some huge explosions of beauty. The members of the Orchestra have experience in various groups such as Refused, The Thing, Tape, Nout, Tonbruket and much more
