专辑介绍:

94年4月,Symphony X成立于新泽西。之前,吉他手Michael Romeo的自制作个人样带《The Dark Chapter》已经备受好评,也正是这张非正式专辑促成了Symphony X的诞生。第一个加入的是贝司手 Thomas Miller,他曾经与Michael多次合作过。很快,主音Rod Tyler、鼓手Jason Rullo和Michael Pinnella相继加入,乐队成形。他们的首张同名唱片录制于94年秋,同年12月在日本发行。专辑迅速在全球前卫金属圈引起轰动,在日本也取得不俗的评价。

距离他们的首张唱片仅仅8个月,Symphony X又录制并发行了第二张专辑《The Damnation Game》。95年初,主音Rod Tyler决定离开,顶替他的是Russell Allen。凭借庄严而协调的人声和古典化的泛音,乐队将前卫金属战线进一步前移,充当起此类音乐向新方向突破的先锋队。媒体和乐迷的反应相当热烈,乐队也计划进一步打开其世界范围的知名度。

96年底,Symphony X开始专注于后来大获成功的专辑《The Divine Wings Of Tragedy》的创作。在前一部作品余热未消的情况下,《The Divine Wings Of Tragedy》中乐队更多坚定了走他们自己的道路。专辑后来凭借”The Accolade”和长达20分钟的开始曲深深打动了众多的欧洲专业音乐杂志。在这些杂志的读者回应中Symphony X被夸赞到一个相当高的高度。很快,《The Divine Wings Of Tragedy》被看作当年前卫金属圈的最佳作品。乐队将众多同行乐队远远甩在身后。而这张专辑在商业上也取得巨大成就。

乐队并没有沉醉与成功的喜悦,并开始准备下一张专辑,于98年初完成。在他们走进录音室前,Jason Rullo因为个人原因执意离去,Thomas Walling火线入队。这张名为《Twilight In Olympus》的专辑后来被证实是乐队历史上又一个里程碑。销售在一如既往的媒体炒作下依旧火爆,全欧巡演也呼之欲出。但Thomas Walling和Thomas Miller的意外无法成行使乐队赶紧招回了Jason Rullo,另外,还补充了贝司手Andy DeLuca。3周时间,Symphony X跨越了大西洋,脚步遍及欧洲大陆,随行的还有英国乐队Mindfeed。巡演相当成功,演唱会门票在德国、荷兰、瑞士、意大利和法国都被抢购一空,这次巡演更大的扩大了乐队的乐迷群。

巡演后, Thomas Miller离队。经过仔细的筛选,Mike LePond入替。99年秋,乐队开始分别在Michael Romeo家里”The Dungeon”和新泽西的”Trax-East”2处录音室进行录音,00年发行《V: The New Mythology Suite》。

    Also When All is lost. For me is one of the best ballad in Progressive metal history.

    @mrchimney but Iconoclast is the best song performance by Rullo . Look at this

    MrChimney: About Iconoclast, I think you were a bit unfair. You can't judge an album based on only one listen. You need listen to an album atleast a couple of times. Especially a prog metal album. There are tons of albums that I love that I didn't like at first. In fact I didn't like my favorite album (Images and Words) at all the first time.

    MrChimney: But obviously he writes his own drum fills, and that is a big contribution to the songs IMO.

    Brandon_Exylum: That's absolutely true, but if I'm not entirely mistaken, I think Rullo doesn't participate in the composing process as such.

    @MrChimney - Don't forget about Rullo. I think he delivers one of his best performances yet in Underworld.

    True, since Odyssey it's the first album where others than Romeo participated in song writing and unsurprisingly it really payed off.

    Well, with the masterful display of magnificence via Underworld, the future and the regained creativity and inspiration of the Romeo - Pinnella - Lepond triumvirate seems promising and enticing enough. There's certainly enough of magic to digest in Underworld for years whilst patiently waiting to see what the future of the band entails... But for now, it's not really the time to gaze into the horizon, but to savour the grandeur of the new album instead!

    I wasn't trying to say that they should return to neoclassical style. After Iconoclast (which is sadly a pile of garbage except 1-3 tracks), I thought that the new direction had no future, but with Underworld they've really proven wrong :). But a more orchestral track conveying their new direction (like some reviewer wrote "like they'd play too much WoW" about Overture), one can wonder and with Romeo's still growing fascination with video games/cinematic music maybe we'll see something.

    "Американские прогрессив-павер металисты Symphony X не оставили свое техничное дело на произвол судьбы и спустя 4 года, после релиза Iconoclast, выпустили новую пластинку с простеньким названием Underworld, только без Кейт Бекинсейл, к сожалению. Упор в альбоме сделан на другое - побить рекорд Вити Зинчука, так сказать отполетить его полет шмеля своим полетом шмеля. Однако перед этим спортивным соревнованием музыканты все таки заготовили немножко музыкального завтрака в виде песни “Overture”, которая звучит как произведение Epic Score. Ну а дальше... каркнул ворон: “Nevermore”, и понеслась техника на стеройдах по морям и океанам, оглашая всех живых и немного мертвых о том, что коллектив может круче чем Зинчук. Спору нет, играют блестяще, техника отдрочена до блеска, но... чаще всего это просто техника ради техники. Но не все так грустно, местами Рассел Аллен выдает пестрящие мелодии, которые мне Evanescence напомнили..." http://rock-review.ru/reviews/18361-symphony-x-underworld.html

    Precisely. After Underworld I'd say a wholly new sort of direction is more or less a must in order to keep their art invigorating enough, since as newbatthis said, they've achieved all that can be achieved with the style that they've had so far and of which Underworld is the culmination. Promisingly enough, there are already a few hints of new winds blowing in Underworld's repertoire, even when it also neatly capitalizes on their past stylistic approaches.

    V Imo they shouldn't. They've already reached the pinnacle with the neoclassical style. No need to retread old ground. Personally I'd rather see they go in some new direction.

    They should try to write something like Odyssey track again. Just imagine Overture being just an intro to a 20 min track with those orchestrations. Holy fuck.

    another amazing album. definitely in my top 4. right behind V, Divine Wings and oddysey. Iconoclast was definitely their weakest one to date. I can only imagine how insane the next album is going to be. I have high hopes. X: ANOTHER Mythology Suite I can only wish haha. =)

    By now Iconoclast has become just a very bad memory for me, so I don't think I will reprise it. There's no need for it now, as we've got Underworld :) There's certainly enough of variety on that album - in the music, in Allen's singing, and so forth. Each song is distinctive, yet the overall arc is still as enchanting. Masterful art!

    I should add that I don't think that Iconoclast is a bad album. It's definitely got some killer tracks. It's just that it also has some fairly underwhelming ones, and the music doesn't have enough variety for an album that long. So I think it's a good album.....just not one of the better Symphony X albums.
