I couldn't find a thread about them, they're pretty much my favourite band.
Saw them live the 15th of February, they were awesome!

Any thoughts about them?

I'm not a great fan of them, even though some of the riffs are good, that particular brand of prog-metal ain't my thing.

Romeo's an incredible guitarist though. Sweep-tapping ftw.

Havn't heard much of there stuff but what I have heard I have really liked. The Odyssey is my fav song of theirs, out of the ones I have heard anyway. I like the vocalist too, unlike most prog bands. And yes ^ Michael Romeo is an awesome guitarist.

Yes, Symphony X is indeed awesome. I love it when the singer pushes his voice, and I have to say, even though Michael Romeo is a spectacular shredder, I like his riffs better (rhyme ftw). For instance, the verse riffs in Domination and Set the World on Fire off of Paradise Lost are both amazing, I could sit and play them all day.

Those were actually the riffs I was talking about

To be honest, I just haven't heard enough riffs like those from them yet, and I get bored with that album pretty quickly aftre the first two songs.

Russel Allen is one of the best metal vocalists imo.

Symphony X is amazing, but there's already a thread on them in the 80's, shred, and progressive forum.

Excellent band. I enjoyed them more than Dream Theater at the Manchester Apollo. The chorus in the song Paradise Lost is very moving to me.
I'm going to create the procrastination club, just later...
