5 stars I have heard a lot about SYMPHONY X before and all the rumors told me that they were among the best in their genre. As I finally got to hear them on their fifth release entitled "V - The New Mythology Suite", I had very high expectations. Could they really live up to their reputation? - "V - The New Mythology Suite" is a concept album about Mythology. I guess that many of you have already heard the band before, but if you haven't I can tell you that they are somewhat reminiscent to AYREON, DREAM THEATER, Yngwie MALMSTEEN, NIGHTWISH and RHAPSODY. Complex, yet melodic Prog Metal blended with Neo-Classical hard rock, big choirs, classical music and magnificent instrumental passages. The musicianship and the songwriting are very good and the vocalist Russell Allen has a strong voice, so there's actually nothing to complain about. - Even though it took some time to get into this album, it's definitely one of the most interesting releases this year. Not a single bad track. Highly Recommended!
