Band Page: Fates Warning
Great track, but my cynical self tells me that the band has written much better songs in the past.
On another note, they will play at my home town Thessaloniki with Wardrum as a support act, one of the best kept secrets in power/progressive metal.
The support bands for the Athens show - The Silent Wedding and Parthian Shot - are decent, to say the least.
Digging: Mekong Delta - Kaleidoscope
didnt except much but this rules
The album is awesome. The best way to describe the album as a whole is to say its foundation is similar to "Simple Human" from the last album with a lot of OSI-style atmosphere, with some Arch/Matheos prog flair (but never as crazy).
Digging: Alcest - Shelter
They're playing IN Reading? I may just have to go...
We'll have to see if I can get off work.
Digging: Animals as Leaders - The Joy of Motion
Judging from your description Trey, it sounds awesome.
In Greece though, music journalists are divided, some say there are some, but few, moments of merit in the (otherwise great) album, while others praise it wholeheartedly.
Hmm, this actually is quite enjoyable.
Digging: Showbiz and A.G. - Goodfellas
Wth they're practically releasing every song
Digging: Tiamat - Wildhoney
Just going to wait for the whole thing which I'm sure will be at least solid.
Just going to wait for the whole thing 
"In Greece though, music journalists are divided, some say there are some, but few, moments of merit in the (otherwise great) album, while other praise it wholeheartedly."
same in israel. one says its amazing but the other says its only enjoyable
At least all of them seem to agree it's good.
So the big 3 and a half of progressive metal are all releasing or have released a new album this year???
Digging: Junius - Days of the Fallen Sun
Who's the half? And the other three?
Dream Theater, Fates Warning and Quennsryche are the "three". The "half" is the Tate fronted Queensryche....
Queensryche haven't been prog in a looong time.
Some sites are posting "I Am I." Wrong band idiots, that was Queensryche in '94.
Song is dec and I do like it. I'm hoping the rest of the album will be more musical expensive though. I'm optimistic.
Digging: Emancipator - Soon It Will Be Cold Enough
