Hi everyone. I think all excited fans of Sym X deserve a thread of their own where they can express their excitement about the upcoming new album or just about Sym X in general. I'm here to make that reality for you, because well, we're on hehe...the same boat. So let's get this show on the road. I'll be honest right now, million percent - I just heard Paradise lost, V, and Odyssey all in a row on my playlist while checking internet stuff - must admit I'm fucking amazed. No matter how many times I put on Sym X music I am blown away every time. Imagine my face in every time that happened? I think Sym X is really an influential prog metal band - we can even go 20 years later from now, to 2034, and I'm sure their wide influence on music would still be present then. I think every member of the band does their job well, plays their respective instrument well, and together they're literally Indestructible(my name, heheh....), and really awesome. But you know, what really stands out is singer Russell Allen. His voice wow - so deep, that even Sym X albums that some fans consider terrible like Iconoclast still have something interesting to offer to all the fans. I also think their combination of classical with modern music elements and complexity makes them really original, if not the most original metal band Ive ever heard. I wake up everyday and, thank god for the fact that this band exists everyday. I mean basically Sym X is the biggest reason I got into prog metal - It was when I was 16 or 17 that I got into them, and holy fuck I sure was amazed -not just that amazement of listening to them every time, but especially when I listened to them for the FIRST TIME - Just.. wow. I think they have influenced me and so many others so much. I myself don't play actively any instrument, but I'm sure if I'd picked a guitar and started to play there would be a clear, immediate influence being shown on my own compositions. I mean the moment my fingers would have touched the guitar notes, you would clearly hear a noticeable influence in sound to Romeo's guitar playing. Or even, if I started singing - the moment you hear me sing you'd think I am like Russell Allen's twin brother or something. I mean seriously, when I wake up everyday in the morning even some Sym X tunes pop up playing in my mind and brings a smile to my dull face when I wake up in the morning. Even when I'm upset or sth, just when the name Symphony X pops up in my mind it basically cures me from any sort of upset or sad feelings. Sym X is the ultimate relaxation band - whenever I'm angry, upset, worried etc etc. - I put on some Sym X tunes and that makes me feel much better.
