Just thought I'd make a thread for one of my fave bands. (Couldn't find any other threads on em. If there are, please kindly let me know.)

Symphony X have got to be one of the best progressive/power metal bands out there.
Michael Romeo is a fucking beast. Hes my main inspiration on guitar.

Anyways, your opinions?
What do you expect from the new album?

Edit: Oh and, *Punches night_lights*

I have The Oddessy and their s/t. I couldn't stand the vocalist on the s/t, but The Oddessey is awesome. I've been wanting to get more of their stuff, but other stuff keeps coming up.

If the new album is anything like The Oddessey, I'll definitely be picking it up.

New-ish to symphony X, and already Im a massive fan.

Love Romeo's style. He's pretty much a faster, cleaner, much more creative and melodic version of Yngwie.

Although I love both guitarists, yeah I have to agree.

Their styles are quite similar though. Just a bit.

Likewise. Symphony X is one of my favorite bands, if not my #1. I love Romeo's trademark string-skipping taps that can be heard in most songs. Jason Rullo is a severely underrated drummer I think, he can probably be a match for Portnoy, and Michael LePond is up to par with other bass virtuosos. Michael Pinella is probably one of the most gifted keyboardists in metal along with Jens Johansson and maybe Janne Wirman. Finally, Russel Allen is what takes Symphony X over the top. Incredible talent in this band.

Oh, and 'Divine Wings of Tragedy' is another landmark album that should be placed along side Helloween's 'Keeper of the Seven Keys pt. II' and Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' or 'Kill 'Em All'.

Symphony X ftw.

i love The Damnation Game. their later albums arent as good, but Romeo is a fantastic guitarist. Not as familiar with Divine Wings of Tragedy as it seems i should...i will give another listen
#9
I can't wait to hear the new album.

The Divine Wings of Tragedy > my soul. The title track is the most epic song ever.

Symphony X > j00

The Odyssey is one of the best albums I've ever heard in all genres of music. over 70 minutes of sheer brilliance. I'm a huge fan of the band, they have a unique sound and it's always fun to hear something by them. Damnation Game and Divine Wings also kick ass. I can't wait for the new album.

Symphony X is amazing. I love Inferno.

Awesome band, but I can usually only handle them in small doses.

Why is it that V - The New Mythology Suite gets no love around here? It's as good as anything else they've ever released but no one ever mentions it.

well, personally, I found it to be one of their more tame realeases, but still a great album tho

Anyways, Symphony X is one of the few bands out there where every member is unbelievably talented
They're like my second fav band of all time!

I can't wait for the next album...The Odyssey was like, a ****in masterpiece among masterpieces

True that. I'm definitely looking forward to the new album. Odyssey kicked my ass all over the place, and with 4 years to write material, they've probably come up with some kick ass stuff.

Oh yeah, for those of you who don't frequent the Symphony X forums over at Ultimate Metal, this was posted a day or two ago.

Oh, and a few teasers about the new cd (call this a forum easter egg of sorts; a hidden goodie *grin*): the name of the new cd is Paradise Lost, & the last time we talked about it, MJR said he had found an awesome artist who wants to do something really spectacular with the liner. I spoke to Mike briefly on Friday, & Jason was there at The Dungeon finishing up his recording; Mike said he'd call me later in the weekend to give me a more detailed studio report, but he sounded quite pleased with how things are progressing. So there'll be a new studio report soon..


They said it'd be a more darker album, and with a name like Paradise Lost, how can you go wrong?
#27
I have a feeling the cover art will be awesome for some reason. The name is okay, but yeah.
Dead soldier! Go now to Valhalla!
#28
man, now I really can't wait for it, I love that dark sounding stuff; kinda like Adagio

anyone else here know about them?

You're right. Its an awesome album (as well as all the others). I'd probably rate it my second or third favourite Symphony X album.


And goddamn. I'm getting a boner just thinking about the new album.

I have The Divine Wings of Tragedy, Twilight in Olympus, and The Odyssey. The Odyssey is my favorite so far and it's the pwnage IMO.

KING OF TERRORS! < I really like the main riff to it. Very catchy.

Well it's a very good album (it has Symphony X written on it doesn't it?), but it c0omes fourth after Odyssey, Divine, Damnation. Twilight in Olympus is the only one I never got into as much. But yeah, V has many good songs also: Evolution, A Fool's Paradise, Egypt, Fallen, etc.

AfuckinMEN !

Those tunes are so killer. Just those alone make that album worth getting for a fan of prog in general


btw, anyone else get into Adagio at all?
