SYMPHONY X Signs With NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS

U.S.-based progressive metallers SYMPHONY X have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The band is currently working on a new studio album for a spring release.

Commented the label: "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 supergroup 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 guitarist Michael Romeo stated, "We are happy to be the part of the Nuclear Blast family and look forward to working with them for many years to come."

On November 4, 2008, InsideOut Music released a special 5.1 edition of SYMPHONY X's critically acclaimed album "Paradise Lost". The double-disc package includes a DVD 5.1 mix by Jens Bogren of the entire album as well as two enhanced HD videos for "Set the World on Fire" and "Serpent's Kiss".
