5 stars Without a doubt the best album of Symphony X "V: The new suite mithology" (do not confuse with the album "V"of Spocks Beard!) is certainly an ambitious project that blends concepts of mythology, Atlantis and new age and translates into a sound that mixes power metal, opera and symphonic rock.

Certainly this album is an improvement over their previous, but it is a masterpiece in its entirety, however it was in my first taps.The opening "Prelude" introduces the listener in a glorious, but the next songs a little disappointing . However the set of songs ranging from "Transcendence" by "Egypt" is the highlight of the album. "Communion and the oracle" is one of my favorite tracks from the band. "Death of balance / Lacrimosa" is still a prominent but the next two are also the epic final disappointing.Fortunately "Rediscovery" arranges things.

5 stars.
