David E. Gehlke of DeadRhetoric.com recently conducted an interview with FATES WARNING vocalist Ray Alder. A few excerpts from the chat follow below.

DeadRhetoric.com: The band has been active on the live front since the release of “X”, but did it ever cross your mind that as a recording entity, FATES WARNING may never record another album?

Ray Alder: Yeah, it definitely crossed my mind. People were doing their side-projects all over the place, and it was never discussed or anything that “We might not get around to doing another album, it’s been so long.” It was always in the back of my mind that we would, though. Jim [Matheos, guitar] and I are pretty proud in that way and don’t want to just fade away. I knew we’d get around to do another album, it was just a matter of when. All of these fucking side-projects, but here we are now and I’m completely happy.

DeadRhetoric.com: You had a stretch where REDEMPTION was your main thing, obviously.

Alder: I think I did four albums with REDEMPTION. Jim was doing OSI, and they seemed like his main thing. It was never meant to be that way, but I had the opportunity to tour and record with REDEMPTION and I don’t want to sit around and do nothing.

DeadRhetoric.com: There’s been a lot of patience from your fanbase. You haven’t totally fallen off the map. There’s genuine interest in another FATES WARNING record. Did that help with getting the album together?

Alder: I think it’s nice and great. We never completely went away, and even if we weren’t touring the States, we were touring in Europe. We’d always go over there and do a few shows and do three-week tours — maybe subconsciously so people wouldn’t forget about us over there. [laughs] Our European fans knew that we were always around; it was American fans that probably feel a little left out. It’s nothing personal – it’s a lot harder to tour in America than in Europe. Everything is so far away and expensive, while in Europe, shows are usually no more than four or five hours away.

DeadRhetoric.com: Going back, you joined the band in ’88, so that’s 25 years. The storyline of you replacing [John] Arch is well-known at least from his vantage point, but how about yours?

Alder: I remember being completely intimidated and scared. I was a young kid. They were my favorite band in the world and I had never even left Texas and the only reason I left was to go to Connecticut to audition with those guys. I remember getting off the plane and having dinner…it was the weirdest thing ever, scary. I got through it and did a good job, and [Metal Blade‘s] Brian Slagel came in and I remember thinking, “Oh God, Brian Slagel!” Now, we’re great friends. It was exciting and new, and I had no idea where it was going to go, but I didn’t care. It’s funny because music wasn’t my dream — I was just doing it in local bands, but once I started, it was amazing.

DeadRhetoric.com: Do you remember what songs you auditioned with?

Alder: “Quietus”, a part of the from “Beyond The Ivory Gates”. I remember I recorded that on a four-track.

DeadRhetoric.com: Your voice back then was so high…

Alder: [laughs] It was so ridiculous. I was trying to do the John Arch thing, and that was the ’80s — everybody was doing it, so I thought it should do it too. As I got older, and before my voice started to change, I just didn’t want to sing high anymore. Chris Cornell, he can sing high now and he doesn’t sound silly to me. It’s not operatic; it’s screaming… I love his voice. Then you have other singers (mimics falsetto)…

DeadRhetoric.com: See, you still got it in you.

Alder: I think my voice has changed because I didn’t want to be over the top; probably because of the cigarettes and booze. [laughs]

DELAIN recently released a special album, “Interlude”, via Napalm Records. The effort is described in in a press release as “a fantastic blend of brand-new songs, special versions and mixes of popular DELAIN tracks, covers, and the beautiful single ‘Are You Done With Me’. Thanks to the new mix, the well-known anthem shines with a new-found splendor. The album includes a special DVD featuring exclusive live footage and clips from the band’s career. ‘Interlude’ is not only a must for loyal DELAIN fans, but also for those who have not experienced the music by DELAIN so far. It is the perfect introduction to the world of DELAIN and the starting point to an emotional and bombastic journey!”

DELAIN‘s third full-length studio album, “We Are The Others”, was released in North America via the New Jersey-based top-tier progressive metal label Sensory Records. CNR Entertainment handled the release in The Netherlands and Roadrunner Records issued the CD in the rest of Europe.

Brandan Schieppati, BLEEDING THROUGH frontman and owner of the training facility called Rise Above Fitness in Huntington Beach, California, recently answered more fitness and music-related fan-submitted questions via his YouTube channel. Check out all the clips below.

Having visited Europe and Australia for the last time, BLEEDING THROUGH will embark on its final U.S. tour in November.

BLEEDING THROUGH plans to hit South America in early 2014 and will conclude its career with a string of West Coast shows.

In a statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET, Schieppati said about BLEEDING THROUGH‘s decision to disband: “We have been a band since 1999, and many of us just had life catch up with us in the way of marriages, kids, businesses and other endeavors. We can no longer dedicate what we need to to keep BLEEDING THROUGH going.

“Personally, I feel doing this band in a part-time fashion is not what this band is about and and feel like we have always been an all-or-nothing band. With that being said, and because we have established a worldwide following over the last 14 years, we want to give us and those people one more chance to share in this music together.”

BLEEDING THROUGH‘s latest album, “The Great Fire”, was released on January 31, 2012 via Rise Records.
