Coming out in July will be a new album from melodic progressive metal rockers Fates Warning. This album comes in a 1 CD format or a 2 CD format which gives you an acoustic only set on the 2nd disc. The acoustic set features never before heard songs, covers, etc.
Fates Warning is Ray Alder – Vocals, Jim Matheos – Founding Member – Guitars, Frank Aresti – Guitars, Joey Vera – Bass, & Bobby Jarzombek – Drums.
The album is more singing than belting out the tunes, as was the case with previous Fates Warning albums. The music is real nice, sometimes pleasant, sometimes harder, but always having that Fates Warning sound. Ray Alder’s vocals really seem to hit the mark on this album. There is some “static” or “white noise” that floats between songs. I’m not sure that this is needed, but, if you can ignore that, you’ll love this album. Check it out, I think you’ll like it. This gets 4 out of 5 Music Guru Stars.
