Just amazing to think John Arch went all those years with doing nothing until his solo EP…and then to a “real” project with Jim Matheos, which is kind of basically current Fates Warning with Arch singing…best of both worlds. This album is heavy, gritty, prog-metal and with the classic and unmistakeable John Arch… still sounding the same too! Great stuff all around.
