Hi everyone. Been a long time since I dropped by here - hope everyone's as excited as me about the new Sym X album. Well, Ive heard about a few bands that are similar to or were influenced by Sym X being mentioned around here somewhere...and one of them Ive got to check out and yeah their sound was pretty similar. Now I consider myself the kind of guy that will dig as deep as needed to find what I want - and being so bored from listening to the current Sym X albums that were already released. I thought, why not give sth new a try. I heard there are many projects in which singer Russell Allen was involved. Are those worth checking out for example? I also heard of a NEW 2015 band russell is involved in - any news on their album's release yet? I really like Allen's voice but I also like the overall unique sound of the band, a sound that obviously cannot be imitated by anybody since its so special but there obviously may be bands out there worth checking out with a touch of Sym X present in their music. I'd love to check those out sometime.
