5.0 out of 5 stars They're back!!!, 16 Oct 2013

This review is from: Darkness In A Different Light (Audio CD)
FATES WARNING make us wait but at least worth the wait. This new CD shows the best of FATES WARNING with a great production to serve a very good album of modern progressive metal. Song after song this album is very exciting with constant changes in the rhythms and melodies with the members of the band in top form. I am a big fan of MARK ZONDER and his way of play the drums but with BOBBY JARZONBEK I'm more than happy. He is an authentic drumming machine and his way of play drums is equally complex but more heavy .I will not highlight any songs because all the songs are good and it would be unfair.In short this is a CD to enjoy from start to finish.

Bought this on a whim and really enjoyed it. Easily the best album of its type this year and better than the latest Dream Theater (not that that's bad )
Every track has something to offer and two vinyl bonus studio tracks are outstanding
The vinyl it self is very clean and flat and the sound excellent
Buy for prog metal fan for Christmass and make them happy '

5.0 out of 5 stars O Fates Warning, this is amazing., 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An urgent and compelling start kicks of last years "Darkness in a different light" in the form of 'one thousand fires' and as it turns out, it would be the best start for on a Fates Warning album in well over 20 years. "Firefly returns the heaviness and riffage not seen since "No exit", with an added dose of variation with the third track "Desire", which harks back to the 'Disconnected' era. 'Fallling' represents a sweet enough ballad; 'I am' is a decent enough prog fest. 'Lighthouse' is one of my favourites song of the album as the song is so deep and melodic it is impossible to escape from it.

'Into the black' returns back to a little dose of metal, with "Kneel & Obey" straight after, capitalising on the previous song with a opening sledge hammer riff. 'O chloroform returns things to a 'Into the black esque, 'and yet it moves' ends the album on a high note with a minute accustic sweep and a destructive metal weight then obliterating it. So as far as I am concerned, every single song was attractive and memorable from the first time I listened through them. It was also very obvious from the first completed listen that this was something amazing, as such a diverse and united arsenal of ideas has been so sculptrally transformed into such a organic effort.

Fates Warning's - "Darkness" has to be one of the best all-round progressive metal albums for many years. This is most certainly a five star album: as the songwriting, execution, musicianship, and production is so damn perfect. I simply cannot find any issues at all with this album. Artwork is intriguing too, as well as an extra bonus disc if you buy the very lavishly produced double disc 2CD set. It comes in a hardback digibook with a digipack hub to hold the discs and the bonus disc contains an extended version of Firefly, a bonus song 'Falling Further'; 'One' & Life in still water' live.

This album will go down in history as a classic, and it is one of the best CD's they have come up with in they're long exemplary musical history; the impossible has been done.

This review is from: Darkness In A Different Light (Audio CD)
After the amazing Arch-Matheos album,it makes me wonder how much talent that man has to be able to write another excellent piece of power progressive music!

As for the purchase everything was fine, no delays, and as described.
