Details Of Debut Album "Dawn Of Ages" Issued By Arduini/Balich, Preview Clip Released

Arduini/Balich is the result of two very powerful figures in in the metal scene. Victor Arduini needs no introduction, being one of the founding members of Fates Warning. The same can be said for Brian "Butch" Balich, the mighty voice of Argus.

The project has released a preview clip showcasing the forthcoming debut album "Dawn of Ages." While only a mere fraction of the nearly 80-minute long record, the teaser video serves as a taste of what's to come when Cruz Del Sur Music releases this "doom-laden progressive wall of metal" next year. Check it out further below.

"Dawn Of Ages" will be released on February 24, 2017 as a deluxe 6-panel digipack embellished by a wonderful, original Michael Cowell's (Alunah) artwork (shown below). The vinyl version will be released as a gatefold colored vinyl double LP with three incredible cover songs as a bonus: Uriah Heep's "Sunrise", Beau Brummels' "Wolf Of Velvet Fortune" and Black Sabbath's "After All (The Dead)."

"Dawn Of Ages" is one of the most ambitious records ever released on Cruz Del Sur Music. A monumental piece of music on the level of While Heaven Wept or Atlantean Kodex's releases. A rollercoaster of emotions, an album that captures the collisions of two worlds, progressive and doom. The final result is a really amazing journey inside human soul. Through six original compositions that last for more than an hour, the audience will be captured and hypnotized by the eclectically familiar Victor's guitar melodies empowered by Butch's passionate interpretation. Indeed "Dawn of Ages" is an album that could have been easily recorded in the mid/late 70s for the total dedication that transpires through each and every note of it. It is not an album that wants to please any old or new trend in metal, rather an intimate expression of two musicians who have always put their passion for heavy music before anything else.

The track listing for the album is:

1. The Fallen
2. Forever Fade
3. Into Exile
4. The Wraith
5. Beyond the Barricade
6. The Gates of Acheron
7. Sunrise (Uriah Heep Cover)
8. Wolf of Velvet Fortune (Beau Brummels Cover)
9. After All (The Dead) (Black Sabbath Cover)
