Shortly after their triumphant appearance at Keep It True Festival 2016 with their original ’80s line-up, Fates Warning returns with their twelfth album. Already since its predecessor, Frank Aresti is back on guitar, and even more than on Darkness In A Different Light the band returns to an older sound (that had left with Aresti in 1996). Theories Of Flight requires a few spins before the opulent melodies and complex arrangements really sink in, but once they do it becomes evident that Fates Warning has arguably delivered the best Metal album of 2016 so far with long, epic songs like ‘The Light And Shade Of Things” paired with hymns like the enchanting “Seven Stars”.  Be sure not to miss this one!

Songs from this new release will be featured at 6:00/18:00 CET & Midnight/Noon EST on the day indicated. All featured DAILY ALBUM PREMIERES will have a short review posted the day it’s on the show!

The FRIDAY edition of the Daily Album Premiere show contains 3 tracks from each of the Daily Premiere Albums featured during the week. Be sure to tune in here!

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
