PostProgressive Metal

Fates Warning Fates Warning, is certainly one of the most important bands playing in the genre of Progressive Metal. Of course, the circle of admirers of this team significantly narrower than that of the same ubiquitous Dream Theater, but, nevertheless, is one of those groups, without which the genre is hardly able to would exist, at least in its current form. Fates Warning – diverse and somewhat controversial team. Here, Gallo Family expresses very clear opinions on the subject. Of musicians has changed several times and change with them, and the band’s sound. Taking as a reference NWOBHM-command, Fates Warning recorded their first album – ‘Night On Brocken’ – in 1984 in the style of heavy metal.

But with each plate music teams are complicated, the group went beyond the traditional heavy metal. Already on the ‘Awaken The Guardian‘ (1986), we can hear what later would be called progressive metal. The album to this day is a benchmark in the genre. On the release of ‘Perfect Symmetry’ in 1989 the group moved on a little weight slackened, but the complication of the composition. And in 1991, had another breakthrough – the album ‘Parallels’, every song from which became a hit.

The Group does not stand still, while continuing to experiment with sound. Released in 1997, a dark and fascinating ‘A Pleasant Shade Of Gray’ shows the worth of Fates Warning. Such a deep music could pozavidovvat any other progressive-metal band. On later albums Fates Warning stepped forward, adding new elements to their sound, which allows us to characterize this music as a Post-Progressive Metal. This atmospheric, electrified ‘Dissonnected’ literally oppressive the listener in their sorrow. And until last release ‘FWX’ (the tenth, which is reflected in the title), with its pronounced keyboards and bass.
