Fates Warning Background
Fates Warning got its start in Hartford, Connecticut and has been making music since its inception in 1982. The band's first album was not released until 1984. It was called, Night on Brocken and released on Metal Blade. The sound was original influenced by fellow metal bands like Iron Maiden. It wasn't until the band wrote and released more albums that the progressive metal sounds started to stand out as a new direction in the metal genre. The album The Spectre Within, released in 1985, is a better example of Fates Warning's transition to progressive metal. This change is depicted in a few songs off the album, like "The Apparition," "Epitaph", and "Traveler in Time."
While the first iteration of the band included members, like John Arch (vocals), Jim Matheos (guitar), Victor Arduini (guitar), Joe DiBiase (bass), Steve Zimmerman (drummer), after the release of the release of the second album there were changes to the lineup. After Victor Arduini left the band and was replaced by Frank Aresti, Fates Warning became a progressive metal band. The changes to the lineup up didn't end there, as the original singer left and Ray Alder joined. Not long after the original singer left, the drummer Steve Zimmerman left and the trend toward more atmospheric metal continued.
The band took a short hiatus before getting aback at it by releasing the 1994 album Inside Out. After its released the band lost Joe DiBiase and Frank Aresti; however, it did not stop the remaining members from continuing to make A Pleasant Shade of Gray. This album is considered darker than the former ones and is likely a reflection of the changes within the lineup and the decision to make a concept album. The lineup continued to change with old members becoming new again until this day, along with a reunion.
