Product Description

“Awaken the Guardian” is the last Fates Warning album with original singer John Arch, and most people would say it is their best. With “Spectre” the band really came into their own, despite sometimes channeling Iron Maiden at times. Galloping riffs, pounding bass, fiery guitar solos, progressive songwriting, odd time signatures, and those clean, vibrato laden, signature vocals of Arch make this album one of the finest albums to come out on Metal Blade. The melodies in the vocals are so strong and really give the songs character and strong hooks. Jim Matheos and Frank Aresti’s tag-team guitar tandem are other worldly, especially on songs such as “Valley of the Dolls” and “The Sorceress”. The other thing that works in the album’s favor is the raw, sometimes underwhelming production quality. Had Fates Warning been forced into the typical over-processed 80’s sound on this recording the songs may not have been as endearing as they are. The raw, heavy guitar tones work well and offset Arch’s charismatic voice.

In 2005 “Awaken the Guardian” was remastered and released as part of the 3-disc box set. Disc two of this set contains previously unreleased demo songs, while disc three is a DVD featuring a Fates Warning performance that was recorded live at The Sundance Club, Long Island in 1986. It alone is worth the price of purchasing this album again, if anyone already owns the original CD or vinyl.
