CD REVIEW Fates Warning

Band : Fates Warning
Album title : Inside Out Re-issue
Label : Metal Blade Records
Distributor : Rough Trade Benelux
Release Date : 01/06/2012
Release : CD/DVD

In the seemingly endless stream of re-issues, now it’s time for 1994’s classic album ‘Inside Out’ by Fates Warning, one of the great bands in the progressive metal genre.

This re-issue comes as a double CD plus a bonus DVD.  CD 1 is the original, but re-mastered album.  CD two offers five tracks that were recorded live in Düsseldorf, Germany, as well as some demo versions, and one previously unreleased track. Finally there is the bonus DVD, which I cannot comment on, since I didn’t receive it.
Even if you already have the original album, this re-release is still worth buying.  If you don’t own the original album, then this is a nice way to sample this band.

90/100
