    SymphonyX played in Milan last 3rd June for the Gods of Metal show. Unfortunately the time in their hands was not much, but the guys were in great form and even people not knowing them were attracted by their music. Here is the setlist:

    Of sins and shadows
    A new song from Paradise Lost
    Inferno
    Communion and the oracle
    Smoke and mirrors
    A new song from Paradise Lost
    A new song from Paradise Lost
    Sea of lies

    That would've been a pretty good short set for someone who'd never heard or seen the band before...

    Yes, it was a great show. Dream Theater played the entire Images & Words album because it's going to be 15 years from its release, and then Home and As I am.
    Dimmu Borgir, Anathema and Blind Guardian also did an excellent show. I didn't like DGM and Dark Tranquillity, but it's just a matter of tastes...

    I think liking dark tranquillity over dimmu borgir would make you LESS of a scene kid...

    The 3 new songs off Paradise Lost were Domination, Set The World On Fire and Serpent's Kiss (in order in the setlist written above).

    It was a great show, loved every moment of it.

    Symphony X were by far the highlight of an otherwise unspectacular GOM07 for me. The set list was well chosen for such a short performance, I could have listened to them all day. Their sound was dead on from where I was standing and they gave it their all on stage. However just like with Dream Theatre later that evening I felt that a sunny day at a festival just doesn't provide the atmosphere to really maximise Symphopny X's music. That being said they made my trip to Italy form Ireland worthwhile. I just wish they were headlining the European tour, not just supporting DT, so as I'd get to see the epic show I'm sure they could produce. Also an Irish date wouldn't go amiss but don't think there's quite the fanbase here for that yet

    At Sweden Rock Festival June 7th they played the same setlist but they finished after Sea of Lies with The Odyssey. Awesome.

    No-one mentioned the highlight of the set, Russel falling over haha.

    Seriously though it was a good show for the time they were given.
