You made a list, and lists are serious business.
Bring this tour to North America first please!
They have Latin American shows at the end of July and start of August - you could squeeze one in before Maiden Montreal! I hear the Latino crowds are the best in the world.That show sounds great, really hope it comes to the states.
We've already had plenty of formatted album reviews in this thread recently.What are you doing in this thread, Diesel?? Now you HAVE to start listening to SX!
Yeah, I reckon all the side projects have a bigger effect on how long it takes them to make Symphony X albums. Russell Allen has Adrenaline Mob and tours with Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Winter, Michael Romeo released his solo album, and Mike LePond has also released a solo album and has a Symphonic Metal band called Midnight Eternal who, by the way, have their own mini-soap opera with regards to former members. It would be nice if they could collectively focus on their main project for a longer period of time and build some more momentum. They are a very well known and respected band, and each member is highly thought of musically, but they really ought to be bigger than they are, but the fallow periods between albums and lack of touring means that they've dropped in popularity compared to other Prog bands. I wonder if this year's shows were an acknowledgement to fans that they don't tour enough or a good way to get the band back together for a pre-album recording warm up. Whatever the motivation behind it, I'm glad they decided to come over here.The weird thing is that the time between Underworld and the next album is gonna be about the same as usual with symphony x, so I don’t know if the personal tragedies really made that much of a difference.
