Metal Blade Records welcomes A-Z to its worldwide roster! This band is a refreshing new band – that includes Fates Warning members. Stay tuned for more exciting and exclusive info – coming soon!
Drummer Mark Zonder states this about the Sign-up:
“When we were looking for a deal, Metal Blade was number one on the list. First worked with Brian Slagel about 40 years with ”Metal Massacre II” and Warlord. No question that they do a great job and we are very excited and proud to be back at MB.”
Musically, A-Z is melodic and progressive, bringing to mind the classic Fates Warning-era of albums like ”Parallels” and ”Pleasant Shade Of Grey”, while recalling the hooks of classic 70’s and 80’s hard rock artists. The band’s upcoming debut will be the first time Alder and Zonder have recorded together since 2004, and it will surely please both Fates Warning and melodic hard rock fans alike. Stay tuned for more news about A-Z coming soon!
