Great news for the fans of Fates Warning in Greece. The pioneers Fates Warning are visiting Salonica on the 26th March 2010 and Athens on the 27th March 2010 for two unforgetable gigs.

This will be the first time the all four of them are playing together in 15 years.


Fates Warning - Parallels (deluxe edition) (2010)

The legendary progressive metal group Fates Warning are re - releasing their awesome album Parallels. Paralles was released in 1991 and still is one of the classic albums of progressive metal. The new edition of 2010, which is going to be released in March 2010, is a special edition and Fates Warning are supporting the new Parallels with gigs in Greece, Sweden and Germany.


Psychotic Waltz

The coolest progressive metal band ever! It's a pitty they released only four albums ( A Social Grace, Into the Everflow, Mosquito, Bleeding ) and had such a short career. The album I liked best is Bleeding, cause it's simpler than the others. We can still find some elements of Psychotic Waltz in Buddy Lackey's ( Devon Graves ) band, Deadsoul Tribe. Psychotic Waltz made a big difference in progressive metal music and even though the band broke up more than ten years ago and released just four albums, they are still among the top progressive metal bands.

Psychotic Waltz - Bleeding (1996)

Bleeding was the last studio album of the progressive metal band Psychotic Waltz, released in 1996. Although many progressive metal bands prefer more complex sound (Psychotic Waltz did so too in their previous releases: A social grace, Into the Everflow and Mosquito), Bleeding is a superb progressive metal work with simpler music. Great melodies and harder tunes join together in Bleeding with the harder tracks of the album being Morbid, Northern Lights and Skeleton.
