Metal Blade has reissued two classic albums from Progressive Metal act Fates Warning. The album Disconnected, which was originally released in 2000 and FWX, which was originally released in 2004, have both been remastered for these reissues by Alan Douches and contain additional bonus tracks.
Each album is available on CD, digitally, on all streaming platforms, and as a double LP in different variants.
A pioneer of the Progressive Metal movement, Fates Warning popularized the style along with Queensrÿche and Dream Theater. Their early work, influenced by the new wave of British Heavy Metal, is also important in the development of American Power Metal. In their long history, Fates Warning has released thirteen studio albums, two live albums, one compilation album, one VHS cassette, three DVDs (each featuring live concerts) and four demo tapes.
The band experienced its first commercial success with the 1986 release of their third studio album, Awaken the Guardian. Their latest studio album, Long Day Good Night, was released on November 6, 2020 by Metal Blade Records.
