Latest Fool's Game News
Below is our complete Fool's Game news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC has announced the release of FOOL'S GAME's debut album, “Reality Divine,” in September 2009.
FOOL’S GAME is the brain-child of guitarist/song-writer MATT CROOKS, pursuing new musical experiences after leaving his previous band DIVISION.
To carry on this project, Crooks recruited some excellent musicians among the ranks of his friends, and so FOOL’S GAME was born with the participation of MATT JOHNSEN (PHARAOH, guitars), LARS F. LARSEN (MANTICORA, vocals), JOHN MACALUSO (STARBREAKER, ex YNGWIE, ex ARK, drums) and NICK VAN DYK (REDEMPTION, keyboards).
The music of FOOL'S GAME is best described as a modern Judas Priest, mixed with an old-fashioned Iced Earth. Add a bit of each of the bands, the members have represented earlier on or are still part of, and you have a dark, thrashy, melodic power metal album.
Here is the "Reality Divine" tracklisting:

Sowing Dead Seeds
As the Field Of Dreams Was Abandoned
