SYMPHONY X To Mix New Album In January

Progressive metal act SYMPHONY X is continuing work on its follow-up to 2002's "The Odyssey", entitled "Paradise Lost", tentatively due in early 2007. The following message has been issued by the group's official webmaster:

"Spoke to [guitarist Michael James Romeo] for a while this afternoon, and here's what he had to say: They had planned to start the mix on the CD this week, but were delayed a bit overall by the holiday earlier this week, so mixing has been rescheduled for January. Russ [Allen, vocals] has three songs to finish (and was on his way to The Dungeon as Mike and I spoke) and hopes to be done with his recording by the weekend, and MJR has a couple more solos that he wants to record, as well as getting some loose ends tied up and polishing things up overall. They are still aiming for a spring '07 release, and Mike had some pretty exciting things to say about the material, saying that it has something for old fans and new fans alike, so I'm confident more than ever in saying that the CD will be well worth the wait. So there IS light at the end of the tunnel, and the band appreciates your patience greatly; stay tuned for more info soon!"

SYMPHONY X was forced to cancel a couple of European festival appearances this past summer after bassist Michael LePond was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease (an inflammatory bowel disorder). He has since undergone surgery and has been released from the hospital.
