Fates Warning Awaken the Guardian Live banner

Fates Warning
Awaken the Guardian Live
Blu-ray | 2-CD/1-DVD | Vinyl
Label: Metal Blade Records
Release date: April 28, 2017

In 1986, progressive metal outfit Fates Warning released their Awaken the Guardian album up against such seminal works as Metallica’s Master Of Puppets, Slayer’s Reign In Blood, and Megadeth’s Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?. With competition like that, it’s no wonder that the band’s third effort didn’t skyrocket to the top of the metal world, even though it deserved to, as Awaken the Guardian is a masterpiece, plain and simple.

The album marked the Connecticut band’s final release with original singer John Arch before continuing till today with frontman Ray Adler. But last year, for the 30th anniversary of Awaken the Guardian, guitarist, songwriter, and mastermind Jim Matheos reassembled the album’s line-up to play two festival shows. Now, Metal Blade Records has released the performances on DVD and Blu-ray as Awaken the Guardian Live, and if you’re a fan of this album and line-up, then this release is going to blow you away.

Last year marked the 30th anniversary of Fates Warning’s third album, the progressive metal masterpiece Awaken the Guardian. In celebration of the occasion last year, founding (and current) guitarist Jim Matheos reassembled the album’s classic line-up, including singer John Arch, for two festival shows. Now, the entire recordings from those shows have been compiled for an upcoming CD/DVD and Blu-ray titled Awaken the Guardian Live, and Metal Blade Records has released a preview of it.

Check out the preview of the upcoming live release (video and streaming audio) here below of the song “Fata Morgana.”

The Awaken the Guardian Live Blu-ray and 2-CD/1-DVD are available now for preorder now, and will released on April 28, 2017. Metal Blade is also offering some limited edition variations.

CraniumelodyHere at Geeks Of Doom, we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of some of the great music that was released in 1986. It was a big year for music, notably the genre of metal, with major groundbreaking releases coming out from Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and much more.

Over the next few weeks, you’ll be seeing some 1986 music flashback-related posts popping up here at Geeks of Doom, and to help keep the theme going, we decided to join forces with the Social Blend and get some tunes crankin’ in the lead up to some of these upcoming posts.

Social Blend mainly focuses on news and stories posted at Mixx.com, but every couple of months we do a special music edition of the show called CRANIUMELODY. Essentially we try and select some obscure and underrated songs for people to check out, and other times we make selections based on a topic or theme for the show.
