Fates Warning - Long Day Good Night

I must admit that if I like Fates Warning for any reason, over any of the other popular prog bands, ie Dream Theater and Queensryche, not to disregard some less popular, but equally artistic contemporaries of theirs is that they somehow always progressed, never resting on their laurels (for too long), or released a patently bad record. They might have experienced slower periods, times when they changed their sound rather drastically, but they always seemed to be artistically driven.

Simulacrum is an exciting progressive metal band hailing from one of most fruitful countries for metal music in the world, Finland. The band will release their third album overall, “Genesis” on February 12th, 2021.

The album is a stunningly strong statement for the progressive metal world with hard hitting melodic progressive metal paying homage to the great prog bands of the 70s without forgetting to blend in the best elements of the genre’s current direction.
