SYMPHONY X to Start Recording New Album Next Month

Symphony X

According to the band’s official website, US progressive metal veterans Symphony X are about to start tracking of their new album, a follow-up to 2011′s Iconoclast. The full update reads:

The new cd is coming right along; the songs are pretty much done and are getting some final tweaking now. Michael Romeo says that the material has a little bit of everything, and reports that the band will begin tracking drums next month after their appearance at Heavy Montreal on August 10th.

The band’s long-awaited second fan club cd will also begin taking shape around the same time, with an anticipated release in time for the holidays. As mentioned previously, it will be another collection of demo tunes and other rare material, and may also include a bit of content created just for this cd (along the lines of MJR’s Star Wars tune on the first Rarities and Demos, which has since sold out of its first pressing). SXW, the band’s revamped fan club, will be relaunching in September.

Nikola Savić is a prog enthusiast, blogger and author, in addition to being the founder of Prog Sphere, Progify, ProgLyrics and the ongoing Progstravaganza compilation series.

    Iconoclast was the weakest release from this band. Allen doesn’t have the range he used to, and the band seems to have decided to go along a more power metal route than staying true to their prog roots.
