Despite my love for classic progressive metal bands like Dream Theater and Queensryche, I never really got into Fates Warning. I recognize their obvious talents, and I have to acknowledge the role they played in the early prog metal scene, but for whatever reason none of the Ray Alder Fates albums really resonated with me the way Images and Words and Operation: Mindcrime did. A friend of mine suggested I give some of the early John Arch Fates albums a try, and that's where it finally clicked with me.

1984's Night on Brocken was the band's debut album, and it bears little resemblance to the progressive metal band Fates Warning would become. Instead it is the prototypical early 80's Metal Blade American power metal album. It's more straightforward metal than the band's later albums, and it's quite obvious that the band worshiped at the altar of Iron Maiden (never a bad idea). There's still an epic quality about these songs that would continue throughout Fates Warning's career, but they are decidedly less progressive in nature. John Arch's high pitched, sometimes jarring vocals are perfect for this kind of power metal.

Night on Brocken isn't a classic in the same way Awaken the Guardian and No Exit are, but it does have its share of memorable songs (Damnation is my favorite) and is an important album in that it marks the arrival of one of metal's most influential bands.

This is a great straight forward metal album. It rocks all the way from start to finish. I'm a huge Fates Warning fan. They don't have anything that is considered weak at all. Turn it up and bang your head!!!!

3.5 stars, really, but I didn't want to shortchange the boys. This album isn't a work of a band at their peak yet - John Arch still needed some development as a singer, and it is somewhat derivative of Iron Maiden. Yet, the guitar is just so METAL that it doesn't matter (kind of reminds me of the first Iced Earth in that respect). John Arch's singing would improve significantly over the next two albums, and his unusual phrasing and excellent lyric-writing would make him (in my opinion) one of the stand-out singers of metal. Sadly, after 3 albums with Fates Warning he would disappear from the musical world until his fantastic recent solo CD "A Twist of Fate" (with Jim Matheos, the main songwriter/guitarist of Fates Warning).
So, I would recommend the more progressive, accomplished, and original "Spectre Within" and "Awaken the Guardian" to start out, but this is certainly a nice piece of classic 80's underground metal for those who are wondering if there's anything other than Iron Maiden (and some Judas Priest & Scorpions) that put out metal in the 80's that wasn't pop/hair or thrash (although Fates does have a somewhat thrashy side to them at times). I think Mercyful Fate/King Diamond is also good in that direction.

The First 2 albums by Fates Warning are heavily influenced by Iron Maiden, and that's what got me into them many years ago. They've progressed obviously, since then, but at the time of this album, it was nice to have one or two other bands (early Queensryche) representing strong musical power metal from America.

I started purchasing the Fates Warning remasters a couple years ago and I had not got this one until now. Finally completed my collection for this artist. Awesome album, great price.
