Genesis was the 2nd studio album by hard rock band Talisman released on 7 July 1993 on Dino Records.

Drummer Jake Samuels had left them to join Zinny J. Zan's band and then Marcel Jacob made all programmed drums used on the recording with an Alesis SR-16.

The album was recorded and mixed in three weeks in December 1992 at Stocksund Recording Studios. The band had a little help from Mats Lindfors (who later did the mixing) with engineering, and then Marcel Jacob recorded himself and Fredrik Åkesson.

Soto joined recording along with his then-girlfriend Julie Greaux (Billy Idol, Axel Rudi Pell) who ended up playing the grand piano on "All I Want".

When the album was released, the single "Mysterious" got some airplay, the album immediately sold some 15,000+ copies in Sweden. Both Genesis and Talisman garnered some international interest, and were released in Japan on Xero Records.
