Symphony X at El Corazon — April 16 —

13 Apr

To switch up the usual report of operas and tango, here is a progressive metal band coming to Seattle’s El Corazon this coming Wednesday. They seem to be generating good buzz in the music event world here in Seattle. Check them out if metal is your cup of tea!


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 comparable to other progressive metal bands such as Dream Theater and Fates Warning. They play in complex timings and odd meters while incorporating elements of Symphonic Metal and more traditional Classic Metal into their sound. Their music also contains strong Neo-Classical elements reminiscent of Yngwie Malmsteen, Randy Rhoads, and other neo-classical Metal artists.
