A few years ago, long time Fates Warning fans went crazy when they found out that Jim Matheos and ex-vocalist John Arch were teaming up for some new music. The end result was the underwhelming A Twist of Fate. Don’t get me wrong, the songs were awesome but there were only two of them. Listening to that album was like watching the gif where the hot girl is opening her shirt but just before it gets to the good stuff the gif starts over. Basically, A Twist of Fate was good enough to be mildly satisfying, but it was mostly just frustrating because it wasn’t enough. That is where Sympathetic Resonance comes in. Not only is it an actual full album by the John Arch/Jim Matheos duo, but it also features the return of longtime Fates Warning guitarist Frank Aresti — rounded out by Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Anthrax) on bass and Bobby Jarzombek (Halford, Sebastian Bach) on drums. It’s like someone found the full version of that teasing little gif and it turns out that her mom and sister are in it too… it just doesn’t get much better ;)

The first song released from Sympathetic Resonance is titled “Stained Glass Sky”, and it is actually just a five minute snippet of the entire fourteen-minute track. Regardless, the song is more than enough to prove to longtime fans that the album is going to kill. It might surprise some people to learn that a lot of the songs on this album were originally slated to be on the next Fates Warning album, but current vocalist Ray Adler couldn’t commit the time due to commitments to Redemption. The full album consists of six tracks and clocks in at just under 55-minutes, and is set to be released through Metal Blade Records on September 13th.

I could have sworn you were one of those son of Crocodile Dundee motherfuckers ;)

As for the song, I know there isn't a big interest in Fates Warning on this site, but my ability to post blogs without any prior approval allows me to not care :)

Song's actually pretty interesting. Never got into Fates Warning but since I am absolutely bored out of my mind with my current musical tastes I might as well try new bands.

@Poet: Did you try those two bands I rec'd on your 4-year list? Also, for you, I'd recommend Awaken the Guardian as your entry-point for Fates Warning.

@Sonic: It might say "Arch/Matheos" on the album cover, but since most of the songs were written for an upcoming Fates Warning album and the entire band consists of current and ex-Fates Warning members, it's just a matter of changing the band name on the mp3s

No, he means he's from Australia's state of New Zealand.
