    FOOL’S GAME “Reality Divine” available in the US today, Sept. 8, 2009

    Here’s what the press has to say about the debut from FOOL’S GAME:

    You want a quote? How about "Best Melodic Metal album of 2009", "Absolutely Masterful", "The Debut of a Great Band". (

    “…This disc was just a welcomed surprise for me and as each track kicked in, I wondered will the hot streak continue or slowly begin to fizzle. I’m happy to report that this was a strong release from top to bottom with no weaknesses. (…) The musicianship is beyond top notch and there is definitely something in here for everyone. If you’re a fan of any of the genres mentioned above or just like good music, then this is a can’t miss. (

    Progressive and metallic in equal measure, this is what you want from your power prog. (…) Matt Crooks risked a lot lets this bunch of players loose on his creation, instead what he got was a mature collection of great metal. (

    Paying tribute to our forefathers of thrash and power metal, Fool’s Game’s Reality Divine is metal to the core. This CD delivers something for everyone. It has well-structured songs, double bass drums, harmony guitar solos and lots of melody. (…)If you’re a fan of metal, this CD is a fine addition to any collection. And if you’re not a fan of metal … Reality Divine just might change that. With this current lineup, Fool’s Game is a band that is sure to deliver high-grade metal for many years to come. (

    FOOL'S GAME is the brain-child of guitarist/song-writer Matt Crooks. Having been part of the long running local Virginia band Division that released three CDs and played hundreds of shows, he decided to leave the band he founded to pursue new musical directions. Without any preconceived ideas for direction he was able to write songs purely for his own enjoyment, and not for any specific market or sound.

    FOOL’S GAME is an exciting blend of modern day power and old school heavy metal, featuring Matt Crooks (ex-Division), Matt Johnsen (Pharaoh), Lars F. Larsen (Manticora), John Macaluso (ARK, Starbreaker) and Nick van Dyk (Redemption).

    The album is available from all your favorite vendors, including:
