 Ok, this is probably a stupid question, but

  Is the band's name pronounced Symphony "X"  or Symphony "10"  (because the "X" is the Roman numeral for 10)?


Thanks.

Just think how stupid the name "Symphony Ten" would sound, lol.

X, not ten.  That's the only way I've ever heard anyone pronounce it.  It's a legitimate question, though, I think.

I like the music of any era, regardless of when it was made.

Even thought they are called Kings X I have always thought they meant it to be Kings Cross, meaning the cross of Jesus of course.

Well since we are talking about Symphony X, what's everyone's favorite album? "The Diving Wings of Tragedy" is my all time favorite, but this is one of the few prog metal bands where almost every single release is stellar.

I'm not sure how to pronounce ementet re...that spelling is how it is in my head. Obviously a gross oversimplification.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.
