Metal Blade is going to release FATES WARNING‘s first two albums “Night on Bröcken” and “The Spectre Within”, released in 1984 and 1985 respectively, on gatefold vinyl. Only 1,000 copies will be produced and available in time for the one and only European live performance of Arch/Matheos in 2012 at the infamous Keep It True festival.
Both of these recordings – featuring original singer John Arch, who left the band in 1987 – will be released on gatefold vinyl with the original cover art and the remastered versions of the album tracks. “Night on Bröcken” will be available on 180g black vinyl and green colored vinyl while “The Spectre Within” will be available on 180g black vinyl and blue colored vinyl. Both albums will be released on Metal Blade Europe on either April 27th or the 30th, depending on which European country.
There have been no announcements whether or not there will be vinyl or any type of reissues for FATES WARNING‘s later albums, including the classics “Awaken the Guardian” (1986), “No Exit” (1988), “Perfect Symmetry” (1989) and “Parallels” (1991), but stay tuned for updates.
