Symphony X: The Great American Symphony
On their new album Underworld, Symphony X take listeners on an immersive, roller-coaster trip to hell and back, proving once and for all that the Devil really does have all the best tunes.
Symphony X are on a mission, it seems: a mission to save the album. Taking heed of the likes of Rush’s free‑flowing 1980 opus Moving Pictures, the prog metallers set out to make their new record Underworld an engaging whole, with each track standing equal. It’s an album made for listening to from start to finish, each song infused with similar merit – an antidote perhaps to today’s throwaway digital culture.
