The Spectre Within . 1985. Progressive Heavy Metal. 7. /10. 1. Traveler In Time. Segments of my life flash through my mind Things never seen. It must be fate warning me for now The walls are closing in. Rosary in Hand, Lost grain of sand. Here I go I start to fall again. Try to scream I'm mute it is the End of my last fall. To the land of nevermore Shatter her glass I woke on the floor. Isolation freezes my life, coldness grips my heart Trapped within a world, a world apart. Desolate am I, a tempest raging silently.

by Matthias Mineur (null) One year after their noteworthy debut album, "Night on bröcken", the Cincinatti, USA based Prog Metal band, Fates Warning released the obviously matured second album, "The spectre within". On this album, Gitarrist Jim Matheos and his band members revealed further uniqueness. Gripping guitars were combined with heavy weight but always rhythmic drum parts. The album sophisticated to the tone is still one of the cult albums of the genre. Now, 18 years after its initial release, it comes back into the stores.
Although Fates Warning was beginning to create their own sound as a metal band, they were still not a progressive band at this point. The bombastic pounding, dueling guitars, and falsetto singing defined this genre perfectly. Metal fans may enjoy this more than Night on Brocken, especially "Pirates of the Underground" and "The Apparition," but there is very little, if anything, for the progressive fan.
