Prog Reviewer
3 stars With "The Damnation Game", Symphony X replace their old singer with Russell Allen, one of the best Power Metal vocalists out there. Here the band represents the same themes that were present in the debut; the opera, the theatrical melodies, the love for medieval legends and courts. Although this time the songs are generally better, as well as the production and the performances from each member. Here we finally find some really good moments that would have never happened with the previous vocalists(Now I promise you I won't bug you about this guy anymore), like in "The Edge Of Forever", or "Whispers". Actually, many songs here are quite good, it's just that some, like in the debut, just aren't, and in this case the album rating has to be lowered quite a bit.

I'm sorry to give this 3.5, but again, I know that with the band's following album, "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy", will a huge success and go down in metal history.
