Fused is a solo album by Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi, released in 2005. The album also features vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (who briefly fronted Black Sabbath in the mid-80s, assuming vocal duties on the album Seventh Star - an album that was originally intended to be Iommi's first solo album) and drummer Kenny Aronoff.
The album was recorded in Monnow Valley Studios, Wales, in December 2004, and was produced by Bob Marlette (who also contributed keyboards and bass on the album) and Iommi. Fused reached number 34 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers list.

Usage examples of "fused".
If a mixture of many substances be fused and allowed to solidify in a crucible, there will be found some or all of the following.
The product is fused with more arsenic under a slag, consisting mainly of borax.
If the regulus be then fused with metallic iron the sulphur is removed by the iron, and metallic lead is left.
But in defining a reducing agent as one which removes oxygen, or sulphur, from a metallic compound so as to set the metal free, it must be remembered that sulphur itself will reduce metallic lead from fused litharge, and that oxygen will similarly set free the metal in fused lead sulphide.
The essential property of a cupel is, that it is sufficiently porous to allow the fused oxide to drain into it as fast as it is formed.
In this case a layer of fused common salt floating on the slag, so as to protect it from the air and furnace gases, is a distinct advantage.
The slag when fused should be liquid and homogeneous, and not too corrosive on the crucible.
It is then mixed with fluxes as described, and fused in the same crucible.
If this amount of flour is fused with 80 grams of red lead, a button of lead weighing 22 grams will be formed, the other 16 grams being kept up by the oxygen of the red lead.
For example: 3 grams of an ore containing a good deal of pyrites and a little galena, gave, when fused with litharge, 16.
If some particles of unburnt carbon remain in the bone ash, a similar result will be produced by the escape of bubbles of carbonic acid as soon as the fused litharge comes in contact with them.
It is not easy to believe that the mere filtration of the fused alloy will effect such a change in the proportion of the metals as that which actually occurs.
Consequently, if the lead rests on a porous support, which allows the fused litharge to drain away as fast as it is formed, a fresh surface of the lead will be continually exposed to the action of the air, and the operation goes on until the whole of the lead has been removed.
Similarly, fused slags damp and filter through a cupel, but the molten metal not damping it withdraws itself into a button, which is retained.
Detach the slag, replace in the crucible, and, when fused, add a mixture of 20 grams of litharge and 1 gram of charcoal.
