Having been in the business for over 30 years, Fates Warning has earned their reputation as one of the true pioneers of progressive metal. Formed in Connecticut back in 1983, they started out as a traditional heavy metal band with the release of their debut Night On Bröcken. It was follow-up The Spectre Within, however that guitarist Jim Matheos and Co. moved towards more complex arrangements. By 1986, the band had truly become a progressive metal institution with Awaken The Guardian. It was at this stage that they began to influence other fledgling acts such as Queensryche and Dream Theater and the rest is history. Metal Blade is pleased to reissue two of Fates Warning's fan-favorite mid-career records, Perfect Symmetry (1989) and Parallels (1991), as part of the label's "Originals series". Featuring new vinyl mastering by Patrick W. Engel, both albums will be released on colored vinyl with 400g heavy cardboard spine sleeves (inside out print), 60 x 60cm two-sided artwork posters and 250g inserts.
