Terry Brown says having Moore on FW's APSOG was "special"


April 5, 2022 - Legendary producer Terry Brown recently reflected on his work with Fates Warning on their 1997 masterpiece, A Pleasant Shade of Gray, which this month is celebrating its 25th anniversary.


The concept record, which featured guest keyboards by Kevin Moore, was the eighth studio album by the progressive metal pioneers and consisted of one song divided into 12 parts.  It is also noted by many fans for its darker and more progressive style.


Brown, who is perhaps best known for his work with the Canadian rock band Rush, was responsible for the mixing, production and recording of A Pleasant Shade of Gray.  He had previously worked with Fates Warning on their Parallels album in 1991. 


"So where do we begin, and what else can we say?" Brown said in an interview with Sonic Perspectives.  "A very dark and brooding album from Jim Matheos that was quite a challenge to make.  Recorded at the Carriage House in Connecticut, which was a great residential studio, we put lots of time into this, not least of all with Mark Zonder's complex set up and execution of the kit and samples.  We were all very focused on sounds and performance and having Kevin Moore as guest on keyboards was special."
