Symphony X


Symphony X decided to drop by in the UK after their Power Of Metal tour of Europe. This Sheffield show was the last of the three dates over here, so before the show I got to have a good talk with Russell Allen about a heap of things. We talk about the band's upcoming double album and further plans, and also possibilities of touring with Star One, Jørn, and the project with Mike Portnoy. Watch the lengthy chat below:





Part 1

Conducted and edited by Barry Anderson.
Recorded by Glenn Searing.

Thanx for the awesome interview Baz!

I laughed when his computer rebooted, with the Windows music. Funny that happened when he was talking about the new album being about machines and computers and stuff. xD

"That's my refridgerator telling you you gotta go cos it's taking over the world... Iconoclast!"

Great interview. Nice one, Baz

Interesting questions, interesting answers.

I'm really curious about the new album (in June it seems) and DVD apparently. They always make us wait so long.

I cannot believe he used to be a knight at Medieval Times... he definitely should have been in "The Cable Guy". Great interview!
