Set the world on fire quickly tore through the speakers in my car and set my ass straight. It also has a certain beauty about it that i can’t help but admire. From the look of it, the band was well pleased with the changes, since they’ve dumped the epic feel near entirely this time around. The keys have some standout solos, and the bass and drums would be phenomenal in any other band, but here they are kind of overshadowed by the sheer amazingness of romero and allen. If you’re like me, you cannot help but feel that this is a bit of a sign that symphony x is on a direction that i don’t quite agree with too much.

Symphony domination paradise lost. No shows booked at the moment. It’s just a metal for the masses record that succeed in its goal to make the band more approachable and gain a wider audience. When the stars lose their fine. Overall, i find this a pretty enjoyable listen. You’ve surely heard this done by dimmu borgir, cradle of filth and the likes, but symphony x have succeeded much better than any of those that i’ve heard. I don’t really know any other album that blew me away as much as symphony x’s latest outing, so i guess the title would indeed go to them.
Although many take this for granted, one of the most difficult things to do is create any sort of musical retelling of such a well-known and frequently emulated epic poem as that put forth by john milton in the 17th century.
