“I Am” Not a Fan of this Fates Warning Video, but “I Am” a Fan of this Fates Warning Song
The video for Fates Warning’s new single, “I Am,” is not very good — it’s a live clip, but a good portion of it honestly looks as though it were filmed by fans on cell phone cameras.
That’s too bad, because I actually really dig the song, and Fates Warning is not the kind of band I usually get into. But Ray Alder is a great example of a prog metal vocalist whose voice soars even as he manages to avoid sounding like a whiny anus. Why has he never been recruited to replace James LaCheese in Dream Theater???
I am appears on Fates Warning’s Darkness in a Different Light, which is available now via InsideOut.
