It should come to no surprise to anyone who heard 2011’s Arch/Matheos record that straight from the opening of “One Thousand Fires” it becomes obvious that aggressive and distinctive riffing of Fates Warning will be in full force on this album. The way Matheos and and his six string partner in crime Frank Aresti work together has always amazed me, and their amazing synergy continues on this album.that track record continues on this album. On this opening track, as has happened in Fates Warning in the past so many times, it seems almost as if the two guitarists are playing riffs from different songs, and yet they merge together beautifully in musical bliss. Underneath the chaos is the drumming of veteran Bobby Jarzombek. Although this is his first studio effort with the band, the years of touring with them and an impressive resume shine through in his very active and interesting drumming on the album. Add on top of that some fantastic guitar solos and a typically strong studio performance from vocalist Ray Alder and I was ready to forgive the band for the long wait after the first track.
