Symphony X 2009 Shanghai Concert
Venue: Wanping Theatre
Symphony X is an American heavy metal band founded in 1994 by guitarist Michael Romeo. Their 1997 album The Divine Wings of Tragedy and their 2000 release V: The New Mythology Suite have given the band considerable attention within the progressive metal community. Musically, Symphony X is often compared to other progressive metal bands such as Dream Theater and Fates Warning. They play in complex timings and odd meters while incorporating elements of symphonic metal and more traditional heavy metal into their sound. Their music also contains strong neo-classical elements reminiscent of Yngwie Malmsteen, Cacophony, Randy Rhoads, and other neo-classical metal artists.
In early 1994 Michael Romeo (ex-Phantom's Opera, ex-Gemini) recorded a demo tape entitled The Dark Chapter. The tape attracted a fair share of attention. He then recruited bassist Thomas Miller, drummer Jason Rullo, vocalist Rod Tyler, and finally keyboard player Michael Pinnella. Their self-titled debut album was recorded in the same year, and released in Japan by the now-extinct record company Zero Corporation Label. The album was positively received in Japan and in some European markets. The second album, The Damnation Game, followed six months later. Singer Rod Tyler had left the band by then and was substituted by Russell Allen, who influenced the band's style in a noticeable way, emphasizing the classical side of Symphony X.
