Fates Warning is a progressive heavy metal (or 'prog-metal') band from Connecticut. Along with Queensryche and Dream Theater, they are considered originators of the movement.

The band was a big influence on Avant Garde, an early band of Rivers Cuomo. Cuomo, also a Connecticut native, has mentioned Fates Warning in a 1995 interview for Guitar World magazine, revealing he once took guitar lessons from lead guitarist Jim Matheos.
