Is it really four years since Symphony X’s last album ‘Iconoclast’ was released? A release that I personally struggled with as I found Russell Allen’s vocals to be too gruff too often rather than hitting the highs that I know he is more than capable of. Colleagues too had commented that something was perhaps lacking in the songs so it was with some trepidation that I approached this, their 9th release, ‘Underworld’.
There’ll be a couple of others. Can’t confirm them yet. But yeah, we’re going to come back in the Summer and do the festival thing. Other than that though, we going to really focus on putting a new album together. We don’t want to have any touring lined up for a little while so we can just put the axe to the grindstone and make a really sharp, good album.
