Says the Yngwie fan LOL. But still, you can't deny the awesomeness that is Michael Romeo.

Anyways, I love these guys. Probably my fave band.

The Divine Wings of Tragedy is a masterpiece. So is The Odyssey. Hell, I love all their albums. (haven't heard the first 2 though).

And I'm sure I already made a thread, but it seems to have got closed for some unknown reason. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=404639

Also check out my cover of the tapping solo in Sea of Lies:

yeah dude there sick but dont forget how solid the drummer is and how good the bass player and singer are either because romeo isnt the whole band hes just a great part of it and i dont even know if great defines it but the whole band is what makes symphony x. Divine wings of tragedy are awesome but i still love "V" the new mythology suite, buy it dude you will love it

^ Yeah, V is cool too.

My second fave Symphony X song is on there. A Fool's Paradise.

The Odyssey is pwns.

They get a pretty boring after a while.

Inferno is a kickass song though.

Symphony X are pretty damn good.

Awakenings is an awesome song, as well as Inferno.

The classical-style solo in that song is kick-ass.

Holy shit that song kicks

"whats become of the WOOOOOORLD?!"

Symphony X are pretty much my favourite power metal band at the moment

Russell Allen's vocals on The Accolade > everything

I figured he'd be pretty shit live until I heard On the Edge Of Forever and saw this vid

Now I want them to get their punk arses over to England poste haste

imo, The Odyssey is the best metal album ever made. I can listen to it 10 times in a row and not get bored.

And The Damnation Game is very very much underrated. Never understood why people didn't check it out, it's very good.
I'm entitled to double post, so fück off!!!

V and Divine Wings Of Tragedy are my favourite albums off Symphony X

I've had The Odyssey lying around for pretty long time but never really listened to it, maybe I really should soon

I wish I liked or even knew Symphony X three years ago when they came here Finland

They are really good, but hopefully their new album coming out in spring will offer a better sound quality.
#17
Better sound quality?!? Are you sure you are talking about Symphony X? Their quiality is weird.... the guitar sounds extremely clean and digital. The only few songs I know to have kind of crappy recording quality are..well no, only Out of The Ashes.... lol.
#21
im a huge fan of the newest album, but I can't say i care too much for their old albums.

I met them all and got them to sign the cover. Good times


Its all about Inferno and Accolade II for me

I love everything except I haven't heard anything off the first album except for Masquerade and I can't say I'm impressed with Rod Tylers vocals AT ALL. However, I love Russell Allen, not so much on The Damnation Game since he just joined there, but in V and The Odyssey. So far, I only own The Divine Wings of Tragedy though.

Symphony X are the only power metal related band that I don't think have cheesy vocals. Not even close to anything like Rhapsody. Listen to the vocal solo in Wicked.

how have you heard there new album and how can you not like them but you must of had to go see them to meat them?? and why would you get your signatures if you dont like them, theres people out there there are amazing to me and i probably wouldnt get there autographs because they dont like it and whats the point unless its a guitar god and still i guess i just havent ever been a signature guy, there was this time i was partying with this band corruption from denver and i used to be a fan of them along time before this and they broke up then came back together and recorded a sick album and my buddy asked for his autograph and he said hey man no ones ever got my autograph so i decided to show the dude respect for his amazing talent and get a signature but if it asnt for my buddy asking it wouldnt have even crossedmy mind, so back to symphony x why would you get there autograpgh if you dont like them?and show me where to hear the new cd.if you can
