SYMPHONY X Putting Finishing Touches On New Material

North America's progressive metal gods SYMPHONY X are putting the finishing touches on the material for their next studio album, tentatively due mid-2010 via their new record label, Nuclear Blast Records. The band's guitarist, Michael Romeo, tells the SYMPHONY X webmaster, "Technically, we could be done.

"I put together some pre-production mixes for us to listen to, and it's all solid.

"We have over an hour of really good stuff that we really dig; there's more than enough stuff there that we can choose the best songs to go on the CD... but all of the songs are really strong. And there are two almost-done songs that we're going to try to wrap up in the next few days as well. One is shaping up to be 10 minutes plus.

"It's really cool stuff that we gotta use."

Romeo and SYMPHONY X vocalist Russell Allen have started working through lyrics, and the band plans to start tracking in early March.

"I think everyone will like it," Romeo concluded. "It has a little bit of everything."

On November 4, 2008, InsideOut Music released a special 5.1 edition of SYMPHONY X's critically acclaimed album "Paradise Lost". The double-disc package includes a DVD 5.1 mix by Jens Bogren of the entire album as well as two enhanced HD videos for "Set the World on Fire" and "Serpent's Kiss".
