After a five years' break, Symphony X have succeeded to produce an album that besides its characteristic nature of massive and symphonic hi-speed arrangements also contains newly facets that takes various twists and turns.
'Paradise Lost', to date, is probably the most aggressive album of this band around mastermind Michael Romeo and singer Russell Allen.
Subsequent to a bombastic introduction that reminds of choir sounds of Orff's Carmina Burana follows an inferno of a song: 'Set The World On Fire - a successful way in to a 60-minutes mania of prog metal.
