FATES WARNING "Night On Bröcken" /CD/



Remastered re-release of debut full-length album by legendary Progressive Heavy/Power/Speed Metal band.
The debut of 1984 showed the band around mastermind Jim Matheos still pretty straight and quite MAIDEN-esque. But a song like "Damnation" already shows the epic direction of the later century-albums like "The Spectre Within" and "Awaken The Guardian", for many the evangelium in Metal! But also songs like "The Calling", "Kiss Of Death", "Soldier Boy" or the great title track are mandatory cult! John Arch just as a gigantic voice and his original vocallines are extraordinary and make the old Fates Warning something very special! That is just the magic that the last three releases of the band are lacking a bit. Basically, this is the demo recording, upgraded to first album status. The title of the album is apparently a reference to The Bröcken, a mountain in Lower-Saxony (Germany) that is traditionally connected with witches (Walpurgis Night), most famously in Goethe's “Faust”. The reference becomes apparent on two original album covers that "were scrapped prior to major distribution".
Re-edition contains four bonus tracks!
Metal will never be this unique and creative again!!
