06:13 - Fearmeister Yea, I never even finished that album and I was a massive Agalloch fanboi
05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
Fates Warning have shared today another new song off their new album Darkness In A Different Light, the first new release since FWX. Having previously released "Firefly", now it is time for "I Am". You can listen to this new prog beast below. It's like they never left.
Their new studio album entitled Darkness In A Different Light drops on September 30th in Europe and October 1st in North America via InsideOut.
In other news, Fates Warning have also announced that guitarist Mike Abdow will be filling in for Frank Aresti on the next scheduled tour runs, as other work commitments will keep him from the upcoming tours.
Frank Aresti: "Being part of Fates Warning continues to be a great honor for me, and I'm very proud of Darkness In A Different Light. Even though work commitments will keep me from the upcoming tours, I'm hopeful to rejoin them for live shows in the not-too-distant future. Having said that, I know Mike Abdow, he's a great player, and I'm looking forward to seeing him with the band."
Mike Abdow: "It is an incredible honor for me to have the chance to play with Fates Warning. Filling in for Frank Aresti is an immense and exciting challenge that I do not take lightly. I am really looking forward to the upcoming tour with the band!"
Jim Matheos: "With the exception of a few years in the late 90s when he was AWOL, Frank has been an integral part of FW's live sound for 25 years, so his presence is going to be missed on the upcoming tours. At the same time, we look forward to working with Mike and we're all excited to finally be playing some new material."
