    FORMER ICED EARTH FRONTMAN MATT BARLOW LAUNCHES NEW PROJECT SENTINELS; DEBUT ALBUM DUE IN 2017

    "...From the visionary minds of legendary metal vocalist Matt Barlow (Ashes of Ares, Iced Earth, Pyramaze) and composer, keyboardist and pianist Jonah Weingarten (Pyramaze, Structure of Inhumanity, solo artist) comes Sentinels. Combining sweeping motion picture style orchestral arrangements, modern classical piano, thunderous percussions, and the dynamic and powerful vocals of Barlow, Sentinels has set out to create something truly unique and groundbreaking. With musical and thematic elements inspired by the great drama, sci-fi, and fantasy films of the last 30 years — combined with duo's obvious enthusiasm for all things heavy metal — Sentinels works to embody the very essence of the word "epic." The full length debut album is set to be mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Amaranthe, Volbeat, Pyramaze) Winter of 2017..."

    So, is this going to be literally just keyboards / orchestrations and Matt's vocals, or will there be a full band involvement? Clip makes it sounds more like the former?.

    Wow - Iced Earth meets Rhapsody!! Can't get enough of Barlow's vox, but prefer more crunch than the small sample I heard.

    Matt Barlow (and Lance King) joined Pyramaze onstage at Progpower XVII in 2016. It was pretty awesome. Headlining that night was Blind Guardian. Maybe you were there?? I like Matt too, and is my favorite Iced Earth vocalist of all. :-D

    I don't know. I love Matt's vocals, but I'm going to need some guitars and drums to really get into this.

    Understandable, but unfortunately there aren't any guitars. That was apparently Matt's idea. I guess he wanted to try something different.
