Epic Metal MAN!! Yeah! If any epic classic of literature has been crying out to be set to music it’s Homer’s Odyssey.  I’m surprised Steve Harris hasn’t wrapped his songwriting brain around the Odyssey given his tendency to set classics to music but that’s 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. It’s a good buzz too! 

This band takes their name to heart and really set out to give you a metal symphony and that’s 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 isn’t, metal bands are just representing it these days. 

Now what pisses me off is the fact that music like this isn’t what’s out there representing metal to kids there days. What they get instead are lame ass clowns in masks with limited musical ability. 

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 ass!
