Holy shit… you got about half of the old Fates Warning and half of the new FW and John Arch on this song… album forthcoming… wow… great proggy heavy fast stuff with Arch’s unmistakable, unique and still awesome vox. MORE PLEASE!

This has a standard maybe punked up rock/hard rock thing… pretty straightforward and probably not too “metal” for the Mosh Pit…
