Symphony X - Sign With Nuclear Blast


Official press release

Nuclear Blast is extremely proud to announce the signing of metal / prog gods Symphony X!

Symphony X exemplifies the technical sophistication of progressive metal while transcending the genre by writing amazing songs with masterful musicality and great hooks!

This New York based super group effortlessly creates a balancing act between solid, accessible arrangements and song structures with highly technical, challenging instrumental work and unbelievable melodic vocal harmonies. This embrace of polyphonic lead vocals, combined with their classical-sometimes even Queen-like choruses create a powerful, in-your-face mixture.

With elements of thundering metal, rock, solos with unstoppable guitar shredding and intense keyboards - this potent group has grown with every release and is poised to compete with the commercial success of top groups in all genres!

Symphony X is currently creating their next masterpiece, anticipated in the spring of 2010!

"We are happy to be the part of the Nuclear Blast Family and look forward to working with them for many years to come," says guitarist Michael Romeo.

They could be based in New York now...people move...I honestly thought that Symphony X were on some sort of hiatus because they weren't...heard from for a long time? I dunno...their last album was a hit and miss for me...

I will soon be able to say "R.I.P Symphony X". Sign with a major label and things are bound to change for the worst. I of course hope this isn't the case but I have my doubts.

R.I.P Symphony X until further notice.

Guilty until proven innocent then I see.
Seriously, this kind of attitude is just pathetic.

Nuclear Blast keeps turning great bands into sellout shit... I hope next album will be in the vein of Paradise Lost.

This kicks ass!! SX were previously on Inside Out/SPV records. Seeing as SPV declared themselves insolvent and got taken over this is a good decision. I hope to see lots more promotion for this awesome band. Inside out still have Shadow Gallery - check out there new album Digital Ghosts now

Second that, Baz.
IMo what Nuclear Blast is doing is, instead of getting a lot of new bands that might never be succesfull, they get bands that are already recognized, like SX or Rhapsody, and support them more, after all, it's pretty much teh iggest label in metal, isn't it?
