A note sent in from a fan at one of the early shows:


I saw Fates right after the release of “Night On Brocken” in Hartford Connecticut at the Agora Ballroom. The show was called “Metal for Meals”…..and was a benefit show featuring local bands like Fates and Society’s Children. Victor’s wife kept bitching at me because I had a cigarette too close to Vic as he was playing. It was an exciting show….because Metal was still fresh….and Fates Warning were the local band that made a kick ass record. Ask Jim if he remembers that show…
