Former FATES WARNING frontman John Arch, freshly signed to Metal Blade Records as solo artist, recently commented on the musical and the lyrical direction of his much-anticipated debut EP, "A Twist Of Fate", due later in the year."I think the music has a good feel to it," Arch said. "There are a lot of elements of the old FATES present, but it doesn't sound retro '80s thanks in part to the newer recording technology but also the combined influences of [guest musicians] Jim [Matheos, FATES WARNING], Mike [Portnoy, DREAM THEATER] and Joey [Vera, ARMORED SAINT/FATES WARNING]." "The fans who take the time to read through the lyrics should find them challenging but yet brutally honest at times," the singer continued. "The lyrics are somewhat personal but I have a feeling everyone can relate at some level. I hope fans new and old will like it. The guys are now completing the final recordings and when it is expect nothing short of sheer genius from these master musicians!"
