FATES WARN­ING

Prog - - Intro -

a Pleas­ant shade of grey (1997) although they pre­dated dream theater by a good few years, con­necti­cut’s fates warn­ing have never re­ceived their dues for forg­ing the prog metal sound. gui­tarist and mas­ter­mind Jim math­eos ploughed on re­gard­less, and in 1997 served up this con­cep­tual clas­sic. dark and in­tense, aP­sog is one 54-minute song, bro­ken up into 12 untitled parts. and while the con­cept – broadly, of a man drift­ing in and out of sleep, sub­con­sciously look­ing back over parts of his life – is enig­matic and oblique, it

per­fectly suits the mu­sic that frames it.
