Arch/Matheos reveal details on upcoming album “Winter Ethereal”

Guitarist Jim Matheos and singer John Arch have yet again teamed up to deliver the second Arch/Matheos album. In progressive metal circles, the names of guitarist Jim Matheos and vocalist John Arch are spoken with due reverence. With the former having been a driving force in Fates Warning for thirty-five years, and the latter the original front-man of that band.

“Winter Ethereal” will be released May 10th on Metal Blade Records. The album is a more stylistically varied and perhaps deeper collection that explores a lot of sonic territory over the course of nine immersive tracks. Jim Matheos says: “This stems from both of us trying to step out of our comfort zones a bit, sometimes voluntarily, sometimes being pushed. Having worked together so many times, it would be easy to fall into the same way of doing things, and I think we were both interested in exploring some new areas.”

A video for the song “Straight and Narrow” is available now for streaming. Watch and listen here:
