Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite

at sábado, diciembre 12, 2009

2000. USA
Progressive Metal/Symphonic Metal

Symphony X is a New Jersey based Prog Metal band featuring guitar virtuoso Michael Romeo and my personal favourite voice in modern metal, charismatic Russell Allen.

They have a very clear sound statement towards Symphonic Progressive Metal with a dominant mythology thematic. As this two genres have always been two big in the Metal scene, Symphony X is probably the best exponent melting both in the pot into their baroque metal blast.

It is back to 2000 when they release V: The New Mythology Suite, a conceptual album that deals with antique Egyptian theme of Atlantis, with their crossover thematic omnipresent good vs. evil. An outstanding album, definitely one of the gems of Prog Metal.
