4 stars watching the progressive metal genre...v:the new mythology suite of the great band symphony x,in fact,this was the first album that i listen of this band...and guess what? i was very suprised about this one...the beginning of this album start like their band tittle say:symphony!,that was my reaction..and in the second song...I change my mind,but not too much..because what this band plays is also a symphony with metal elements...

to give a definition about this album i will give the influences that this band have... symphony x have the influences on the riffs parts of the guitar like Metallica,queensryche and black sabbath...and the solos section is similar to bands like,Deep purple,iron maiden and camel..most of people say that this band are the wannabes of dream theater,but i dont think so..this band is more powerful,and this band are based on clasical influences like bach, we are talking about diferent sounds and diferents concepts at all....This album cointains a lot of changes in the music,the riffs are powerfuls,michael romeo is a maginific guitarist,and his creativity is allways amazing..the voice of russel is perfectly acoplated to this me this is one of the best album that symphony x has made...just listen to very dinamic,very powerful,very sentimental and a very progressive thing...enjoy..

keep on the good work
