    oh, here it is: Dymphony X will be playing at the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise in early 2014.

    Sorry, but they don't do that sort of things.

    :lol: @ this thread. You'll be poked fun at, but probably 80% of the lurkers silently agree with you.

    I honestly don't. I play in a band myself, we are the typical small, local band, so we don't have a huge crowd of people claiming for updates. And it's a blessing, since we all have our own lives and we can't commit to the band more than we do, and this leads to the fact that five years from the first ep we are still writing the songs that will end up on our first full length album... :D

    Is that comparable to the situation Symphony X is in?

    no, not really. But it gives you the idea that, at times, there is really nothing goin' on in a band, so this explains (in part) the lack of updates.

    The fact that, speaking of symphony x, the updates are mostly "new album out" or "new tour dates posted" is of course the reason why they are so rare.

    Well, that's the reason I prefer to check out the infos on social networks like Facebook and Twitter...

    I remember the fans being asked about what songs they would see in the setlist, and I remember how it ended, so my suggestion is: Why don't we ask for another Iconoclast-like album? Hopefully they will ignore us and do something (non necessarily entirely) different! :D

    Less orchestral focus, more keyboard focus.
    Less speed, more clear melody.
    Less "heavy song" or "ballad", more dynamic songs.

    Maybe a collaboration with Daniel Cardoso to make a neoclassical epic with a splash of electronic avant-garde.

    I saw that, but not on their website. This is precisely the type of thing that makes me scratch my head. I get it. People tell me that they are not a full time band. They have other jobs. (I don't know this, I am taking other peoples' word for it. It makes sense.) But how hard is it to update your fans on what's going on. Tell them you're on the concert cruise. Give us studio updates.

    Maybe if they did more promotion, albums and touring, they wouldn't need day jobs. It seems they gain momentum with each album and then lose it because they wait five years to release the next one.

    This. All though I like the orchestral element. Also more keyboards is fine as long as they don't diminish the guitar work, which they shouldn't.
