Prog Reviewer
4 stars After five studio albums, the American progressive metal band SYMPHONY X is releasing their first live album "Live On The Edge Of Forever". SYMPHONY X is one of the best Prog Metal bands from America and a very good band in the studio, and this double-CD proofs that they're managing to play their songs live too. The album was recorded live in France and Germany in October 2000 and June 2001. The songs are powerful performed and as skillful as on the studio albums. Russell Allen's vocals are impressively strong onstage too. The last song is also the highlight of this live album. It's their 20-minutes epic masterpiece "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy", what a perfect way to end the album. SYMPHONY X has come a long way and developed a lot since their self-titled debut album in 1994. This live album is a very good summary of their career so far.
