PiercingMetal Thoughts: I was a latecomer to the music of Fates Warning despite being a fan of the kind of Progressive Metal that they were in part responsible for creating but I like what I have heard over the years and think this is a no-brainer for any fans of the technical and heavy mix. I must admit that I haven’t heard the new album yet but I’ve made a note of it and it will be on the review plate ASAP so you can learn our thoughts about it. I hope that they announce a solid support act for the US dates because the last thing I want on the regional shows is a handful of local openers that push the main act back to a late hour. Now it’s time for your thoughts, what do you make of this tour and will you be in attendance at all? Let me know down in the comments section below.
