New Interview with John Arch of Arch/Matheos!
5/11/2019 by Frank Hill




John Arch, founding member of the pioneering progressive metal band Fates Warning, has a well-earned reputation for his distictive vocal sound and range along with complex and thought-provoking lyrics.

On the genre-defining Awaken the Guardian release in 1986 this was done through mythological references and metaphors. On his last three releases, his solo ep A Twist of Fate followed by Arch/Matheos' debut Sympathetic Resonance and the new Metal Blade release Winter Ethereal, he has used more real-life experiences and emotions to connect with the listener.

Photographer and writer Mark Cubbedge had a chance to speak with John for Maximum Metal about why he continues to produce music as he enters his sixth decade of life, the songwriting process, and his inspiration and back story to writing Winter Ethereal.Check it out here...[Full Interview Link]
