4 stars Symphony X is a very underrated prog metal band. I consider The Divine Wings of Tragedy to be one of the pinnacles of the genre. The epic title track is one of the best epics of modern days. The album is heavily influenced by classical music and neoclassical music such as Yngwie Malmsteen. The Malmsteen influence can be found especially in guitarist Michael Romeo's soloing, however he is not a rip off as many shredders are. keyboardist Michael Pinella shares a similar neoclassical disposition. The two trade off solos very well. The music is generally heavy throughout, except for the slower "The Accolade" and "Candlelight Fantasia." Overall, a great album in the vein of Dream Theater and Yngwie Malmsteen with some influence from Kansas at times.
