"A-Z" is an exciting new group that reunites Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder with Warlord and former Fates Warning drummer, the legendary Mark Zonder.

Joined by Philip Bynoe (Warlord, Steve Vai, Nuno Bettencourt) on bass, Joop Wolters (Steve Walsh, Simon Phillips) on guitar and Vivien Lalu on keys the band have a melodic, progressive and deep sound, bringing to mind the classic era of Fates Warning albums like "Parallels" and "Pleasant Shade Of Grey" while recalling the hooks and melodies of Journey.


wanna bet they play half a set of FW covers? :D

Doesn't sound like my thing, but I might give them a try anyway.

Solid release. Love the more mature sound of Alder's vox these past 2 decades.
The Redemption albums with him fronting the band are modern classics, IMO.
