X The Odyssey
Review by Scott
X The Odyssey
Epic Metal MAN!! Yeah! If any epic classic
of literature has been crying out to be set to music its Homers Odyssey.
Im surprised Steve Harris hasnt wrapped his songwriting brain around
the Odyssey given his tendency to set classics to music but thats ok,
because Symphony X do it with style.
On this CD Symphony X have once again topped
themselves as they seem to do with each new CD. But there are no big surprises
in store for Symphony X fans, the band stays true to their craft, while
cranking out a bowl full of metal to get you stoned on Epic progressive
metal riffing and power vocals. Its a good buzz too!
This band takes their name to heart and
really set out to give you a metal symphony and thats exactly what you
get with the mind-blowing title track that clocks in at over 24 minutes
and would give Beethoven a run for his money. Who was the a-hole that
said classical music is dead? It isnt, metal bands are just representing
it these days.
Now what pisses me off is the fact that
music like this isnt whats out there representing metal to kids there
days. What they get instead are lame ass clowns in masks with limited musical
New Jersey may have foisted Bon Jovi on
us but Symphony X do the garden state proud and more than make up for the
years of crap coming out of there from the slippery when wet crowd.
If you want real metal than dude get off
your ass and go buy this CD! Nothing more to say besides it will kick your
a friend about this article
Turn, What do you think?
