Yes, they are in my top 20 favourite bands. Romeo is one of my favourite guitarists.

Roll on the release of the new album.

What's your favourite album? Mine is a tough choice between V and Divine Wings.

Fuck...

I don't think I can pick a favourite!!!

My favourite 3 songs are on 'Twilight..', the first 2 albums aren't so great (especially because of the singer on the first one )
Divine Wings, V, The Odyssey are just fantastic albums, too close to call for me!!!

Like the vocals or not, they do fit the music well.


Their best song = The Odyssey

All of it!

Tracks - In The Dragon's Den, The Relic, Smoke and Mirrors, and any songs from the albums Divine Wings of Tragedy, V, The Odyssey should just about cover it

I've seen them live twice, and they're great there and in studio.

While "The Odyssey" is my favorite album, I didn't love the title track. The beginning and end are really good.

As for recommendations:

Church of the Machine
Smoke and Mirrors
Accolade I and II
Inferno (Unleash the Fire)
Of Sins and Shadows
Incantations of the Apprentice (WAY Underrated)

Romeo is just incredible...well, sort of. amazing to listen to, bitch to play too. hes a lil too random and stuff

but yeah, only have their V album, and love it to bits! its a pitty that the band is not as popular as they SHOULD be. i mean, everytime anyone says 'yo, you heard of Symphony X?' everyone automatically says 'oh, you mean Dream Theater wanna be?'

or atleas the people ive aproached. but fuck them. dream theater, to me, sounds too similar. all their stuff is similar. symphony x isnt....

though, i think Symphony X should work on their vocals when recording. i like the vocals, and they fit perfectly to the song, but perhaps the vocals should be a lil higher coz all the distortion eats away on the vocals. and at times, its really hard to hear him

^ You're basing your opinions on only one album. From what little i've heard of DT, i'd say their stuff contains more variety than Symphony X who haven't changed that much between albums. Also, the vocals are crystal clear.

i have heard majority of their albums from intro to outro. i just own V. the others are either too expensive, or hard to find. and i dont really like burning stuff...

but dream theater stuff i find more boring. after a while thei stuff just starts getting...idk. dont get me wrong, DT is amazing. but perhaps i over played em or soemthing. but i still see symphony x as a bit more superior than DT

A sample of each song can be found here;
http://www.spv.de/scripts/ktrack_e....er=79252&label=

Sounds like good ol' Symphony X to me. One of those samples sounds like some of the fastest stuff they've recorded and you can tell it's produced by the same guy that produced Opeth's Ghost Reveries; listen to those drums.

I've listened to it twice now and about to start again for the third time.

The vocals I find are a bit irritating at times (specifically in the first few tracks). I think it's the more aggressive approach that causes it, but it's not a major problem. The guitar tone of course is brilliant and I like the use of the occasional choir sounds. Also, there are some parts that are really heavy for Symphony X.

My favourite tracks so far are The Serpent's Kiss and Eve of Seduction.

As with the whole album, it's a good song. The opening riff is the best part of it. The only thing I think this album is missing is one of their trademark epic songs, but there are plenty of other epic sounding shorter songs and sections.

Only if you blow me the entire way and cut out your tounge once we get to the concert so I don't have to hear you babble. Plus, you gotta buy me some booze and, of course, pay for all the gas.

If you agree to the terms, I will need your signature in the space provided and your initals next to your signature.
