Subject: Lame Symphony X Question
Date Posted: January 17 2011 at 15:30

 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.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite between The Odyssey and Divine Wings.  I would have to say Odyssey, even though my favorite solo by Michael Romeo is in Divine Wings, I liked Odyssey better as a track, and I was a sucker for The Awakenings and the harmonies in Incantations of the Apprentice.

Funny story.

V is not my favorite Symphony X album (that would go to Divine Wings), but it did introduce me to my favorite band when I read about SB's V's uncanny similarity in terms of album art.  Guess I'm kind of indebted to them for that.

I wonder if Symphony X will have an "X" album of their own when they reach number ten...

Vee

I've always said five, since it is their fifth studio album.  Make sense?

I know it's in reference to five, but I like the sound of Vee:The New Mythology Suite instead of Five: The New Mythology Suite, so I still call it Vee ^_^

Hmmm never gave it a though but I am pretty sure it's just "X" LOL

hehe...we all know it's just pronounced "Sun"!
They had to extend it as much as possible, just like the music...

Yeah I think it may be "Five" as well because some of the lyrics on the album mention the number five quite consistently and there are lines like, "the power of five" (from the songs Fallen and Communion and the Oracle, at the top of my head).

Could be 10 actually, due to the myth that Romantic composers never composed any more than 10 symphonies? (Mahler, Beethoven, Schubert, Prokofiev...)

I don't get how anyone can not think that PL is their best album.... It's just amazing, whereas V is cliched and dated.

What, the best is the Odyssey of course. It's got everything.

Hmmm, V as in Vee, because we don't really use roman numbers in my language, and when/if we should use them, we pronounce them as letters. I think I might have guessed X was for ten, but that's just because I know it's not 1 or 5 :)

I've always said V as in "Vee". Like Baby Snakes I think "Vee" sounds better than five. This may be because I've always known it as "Vee" though.
