In true “no update until there’s something to say” form, New Jersey’s progressive metal masters from Symphony X have been quiet as of late.
Don’t let the silence fool you, though; they’ve been busy. So busy, in fact, that a new CD is almost done! Recording of the drums, lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and bass – a.k.a. the bulk of the as-yet-untitled new album – is complete.
In the next few weeks, the keyboards, guitar solos, background vocals, and some miscellaneous odds and ends will be done, with the goal to have everything recorded by the end of the month.
Symphony X guitarist & songwriter Michael Romeo comments: “The plan was to have everything tracked by Christmas, and we’re pretty much on schedule. Things are moving at a good pace, and the songs are starting to come to life. More on that down the road a bit.”
