3 stars The Dammation Game marked the debut of the most classic line-up of Symphony X!

And of course, with the incorporation of Russell Allen the group gained exponentially in strength and quality. His voice has the perfect quality and tessitura for a group of these characteristics, far surpassing the previous frontman.

In addition, compared to their debut, the compositions are much more coherent and focused, resulting in a more attractive sound suitable for the general public, which would make them great and successful on successive albums.

Best Tracks: The Edge of Forever (long and complex), Whispers (incredible instrumental interlude) and the A Winter's Dream suite, specially the second part.

My Rating: ***

The Crow | 3/5 |
