    Skip to about 26:30 in the podcast (or just listen through for some prog). I dig it. Some good riffs, solid vocals from Ray, and its awesome to hear Frank Aresti shredding for FW again. Great drum performance for Bobby Jarzombek. I almost want to say it's a bit Perfect Symmetry mixed with where they headed with FWX.

    Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to the album :agreed:

    this also came out recently. it's the singer from Spiral Architect with members of his original band Manitou (their album "Entrance" is MUST HAVE if you like midperiod FW).

    Yep, I'm almost willing to forgive him leaving Fates to do that "Dragon Spoon" project.

    ....almost. :squint:

    I love frank, but that solo sounded a bit forced and out of place in the song.

    i remember years ago they were not referred to as progressive but "fantasy metal"

    that was probably in the arch days. the lyrics had a lot of fantasy style in them.

    Firefly does remind me of Engine, but I definitely still dig the hell out of it. Probably preorder the new album with the next paycheck :yesway:

    Well, the albums out. Anyone else listen?

    So far I dig the hell out of it. 'A Thousand Fires' and 'And Yet It Moves' are excellent longer tracks, and 'Firefly' gets stuck in my head easily. It definitely sounds like modern FW, but the production and the way the instrumentation is written gives me a total "Perfect Symmetry" vibe as well. Great release from the original Prog Metal masters that I feel will get better with more listens :yesway:

    Also, after listening to 'A Thousand Fires', it makes sense how Arch/Matheos was going to be a FW release. I feel like that track could have easily had John Arch singing and be on Sympathetic Resonance.

    It's not a necrobump if its new, right?

    Fates Warning To Record New Album In December - Blabbermouth.net

    I'm amazed, no decade long wait between records? Sweet. Still love Darkness in a Different Light.
    Caught them in Poughkeepsie, NY last weekend while I was visiting family, still got it, still my favorite band by far. My fiancée was also cool enough to record (almost) all of Life in Still Water for me, my favorite song by anyone ever.
