    Symphony X now has an official MySpace page: you can find it at http://www.myspace.com/officialsymphonyx

    Much thanks to our esteemed webgoddess Lisa for designing the space; you rock as always, m'lady! It's still a work in progress, so please be patient as we get content put up; MJR will be choosing which songs to upload and such, so once he's decided on that, they'll be added. The same news updates that go here and on the site will go into the blog there, as well. I'm also going to see if I can get the guys to contribute a blog here and there..wish me luck with that. :)

    That's awesome. I have the unofficial myspace account as a friend, but something official is better. ;) I'm looking forward to some cool songs and blogs.

    yeah, kind of a demotion. fix official site instead :<

    edit: of course I understand that the person fixing that myspace site might not have anything to do with the official site.. but like.. "official myspace site".. rather have a fansite

    It's a good thing, even if MySpace isn't. Think of all the moronic teenage minions who might now accidentally stumble across Symphony X. Perhaps it will make them less moronic.

    myspace is indeed suxy but as a band you have to live with its usefulness for promotion

    Myspace has become a necissary evil, both for promotions and for someone like myself who needs to stay in the loop on the local scene and such. Sure, it's a shitty place for high school drama to unfold and emo kids to run amok and post suicide notes :lol: (that makes me laugh every time), not to mention the legions of 15 year old girls who pose half naked and wonder why people call them whores... anyhow, it's still a useful tool. You get out of it what you put into it.

    Hm, I suppose. It just seems so pedestrian for a band like Symphony X to advert on Myspace.

    It's a matter of their material being there in an authorized capacity. The wannabe myspace pages used SymX's copyrighted material illegally & MJR was not pleased..this way the material will be there with his blessing, and new fans will find the band, and everyone wins.

    Don't like it? Don't look at it, simple as that.

    Myspace rules for band promotion. My band Meltdown gets a show every weekend just from being on Myspace.

    I'm their friend on there now, just behind Dark Empire. Damn you, Matt! :)

    Not taking advantage of a good marketing/promotional tool based on principal alone is not very smart. If Symphony X is "above" myspace, then they lose out on potential fans. Doesn't seem like that's the way it should be hmm?
