Arch/Matheos Streaming New Song "Stained Glass Sky"

Newly formed act Arch/Matheos has released the first single off the group's upcoming full-length debut "Sympathetic Resonance." The new track, a 5 minute clip of the song "Stained Glass Sky" that clocks in at just less than 14 minutes, can be heard at this location.

Cover art for "Sympathetic Resonance" was fashioned using an image created by light painting photographer Dennis Calvert, who has described light painting as "The ability to see in 4 dimensions, time traveling, and creating fantasy using only what we base all reality on, light."

The band - accompanied by Joey Vera on bass, Bobby Jarzombek on drums, and Frank Aresti on additional lead guitar - began tracking the drums on January 12th and continued to record through March with Jim Matheos producing. "Sympathetic Resonance" will be released September 13th, 2011 in North America.

This was okay. The music definitely sounds like it was written for Fates Warning album and I kind of hear some of OSI's modern metal approach from Blood as well.

Arch's vocals really didn't stand out there well here though. I'm hoping the new Redemption is better even if Ray lost some of his range from singing live. The last disc sounded very groove oriented, Drop-D stuff. Kind of like this..HAHAHA.

I'm sure its pure coincidence.

Argh have to wait to get home to hear this... but I'm looking forward to the release none the less - Arch's EP has been on heavy rotation for me and I'm glad he's back creating more music, it'd be a crime for his voice not to be heard more.

Not bad, sounds promising. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing this.

I'm not expecting it to be as good as the first 3 Fates Warning albums but then I don't expect anything to be.

It would be cool if they toured, getting to see John Arch live. . .whoa, now that'd be surreal.

As a long FW fan it is great to hear John Arch again. He sounds good but a little reserved. So I am excited to hear the rest when it is on sale. I will admit when the song first started playing I could hear Ray Alder singing this song. Either way I am excited and hopefully FW will start producing albums with both Ray and John.

I am really excited to hear the CD as it is so nice to hear John Arch's voice again. He sounds great like always and hoping the rest of the CD showcases his voice a little more. Sorry Jim, besides the EP haven't heard anything from John in like 25 years. All I have to say it would be great for you guys to tour and hope you can come to Seattle since I missed the last show in 2003. Maybe a tour with Redemption. Either way just come to Seattle and make sure to bring John.
