Symphony X and Iced Earth with Warbringer at Times Square
Type: Music & Concerts
Symphony X is an American progressive metal band from New Jersey founded in 1994 by guitarist Michael Romeo. Their 1997 album The Divine Wings of Tragedy and their 2000 release V: The New Mythology Suite have given the band considerable attention within the progressive metal community. Musically, Symphony X is similar to other progressive metal bands to which they are commonly compared, such as Dream Theater and Fates Warning. They play in a syncopated, progressive fashion, while incorporating elements of symphonic metal and power metal into their sound. Their music also contains strong neo-classical elements reminescent of Yngwie Malmsteen, Randy Rhoads, and other neo-classical metal artists.
