Arch/Matheos - Debut Album Title Revealed

Jim Matheos, guitarist and only remaining founding member of Fates Warning, and John Arch, the original vocalist of the band, are pleased to announce Sympathetic Resonance as the title of their debut album, which will be released September 13th in North America.

The band - accompanied by Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning) on bass, Bobby Jarzombek (Halford, ex-Iced Earth) on drums, and Frank Aresti (ex-Fates Warning) on additional lead guitar - began tracking the drums on January 12 and continued to record through mid February with Jim Matheos producing.

Jim Matheos offered his insight on the writing and recording process of Sympathetic Resonance; "I think John and I work really well together. There's a lot of mutual respect and trust in what we do. But, we're also both very critical of ourselves, and each other. This can make for a long and, sometimes, tedious process. But ultimately it's one I enjoy because I think it brings out the best in both of us."

John Arch added; "When I first heard some of the arrangements Jim had written and recorded, it took quite some time before I could wrap my mind around the odd time signatures and guitar work going on here. There are some long compositions, so putting anxiety and apprehension on the back burner it was time to dissect these numbers into digestible bits. After the lengthy process of lyrics and melodies, listening to the songs now, I can't imagine them any other way."

In terms of the lyrical content on Sympathetic Resonance, John Arch notes that "the lyrics this time around are more in line with A Twist of Fate and not of the mystical nature of some past albums."

I am liking what I am reading here. For example, I am definitely into compley time signatures.
