    Don't think you are listening to the right album dude, because the Arch/Matheos style is all over this one. The is easily the heaviest and most 'metal' release from Fates sine No Exit.

    I've never been a huge fan of this band, which I'm sure is a sort of blasphemy around these parts. Weirdly, I LOVE OSI (well - I suppose that's more due to being a massive fan of industrial/electronic music) and Redemption - so I figured I may as well queue this up on Spotify like I do with every week's new releases. Got it on right now and really digging. I'm under the impression though that their older stuff sounds nothing like this right?

    I feel like if you like early Angra, you would probably dig early FW. And probably vice-versa.

    The vocals on the new album remind me a LOT of "Parallels" and "Inside Out", but overall those albums are not so heavy. On the new album, the approach of the rest of the band sounds a lot like the Arch/Matheos album(or even a bit like Redemption), if a bit less frantic -- it sounds like they kept the same guitar sound and studio approach from the 2011 A/M album. The only other FW album that approaches this level of heaviness might be "No Exit", but there Ray is doing a very *very* different style of vocals, back before he lost the top half-octave in his vocal range, before he developed his more mature voice.

    ARGH!!!!!
    The band posted on FB how this will be available at Best Buy.
    Mine did not have it.

    It's so hard to really say what the FW "sound" is as I think every album is so unique in its own way.

    Really looking forward to getting this.

    What a powerhouse group of individuals who make up this band now are....

    I like it. On first listen, it reminds me most of Disconnected, which I also like. It's not amazing, but FW has such a well-developed musical character that they hit a spot that no other band hits for me.

    Agreed totally. I think Fates haven't really sounded the same across more than two albums at any point in their career. What DOES sound vintage here is the Matheos sound. His guitar work carries a unique sound to it across all his projects, and that is no less true here. From the opening track on, this has his fingerprints all over it, and that is all I ask for in my Fates music.

    I may have a unique( or crap) perspective on this band as I consider APSOG their finest work with Parallels very close behind. After one spin with this while on my lunch break today I can honestly say this is not the FW album I expected. I'm not even sure how to describe what I had in mind, but this is very, very good. I love the difference in drumming. Zonder is as good as anyone in the industry, but a change was for the better. Jarzombek really has an aggressive nature Mark did not. While Ray's range is gone, his timbre and tonality remain tops in the game. He really does sound clear here, very strong vocals. It's going to take me a while to adjust to some of this ( shit it's been almost a decade) but I can safely say this album is a monster even if it's not what I thought it would be. It could turn out a whole lot better.

    Disagree about Jarzombek. Zonder was an integral part of the Fates Warning sound. Bobby overplays the shit out of everything here to the point of distraction. The disc has none of the dynamics that past discs did, and the heaviness just falls flat. I rate this as their worst disc and they may fall off of the "must buy" list in the future.

    ^ +1. I spun this disc for the second time today and couldn't help but think this was missing Zonder. He's one of my favorite drummers. But, I still am digging the album.
