The only thing that sucks is that they'll probably do a majority of the new album which is a giant steaming pile of shit, and only a few songs from their old albums. However, with Nevermore, Soilwork AND Powerglove (their new album fucking rules) it should be a good show.

I guess you've heard leaks or something, since there is no way you can be talking about the crushing tour de force that is Paradise Lost.

Never heard of Powerglove, but that's a pretty sweet lineup. Pity I hate treking all the way out to the Palladium. :lol:

One of their more popular songs


It's like this for an entire album

Dave : please, for the love of God, tell me that was sarcasm.

No, that wasn't sarcasm. What the fuck is wrong with your ears?

Sorry, I'm with Dave here. I'm not the hugest Symphony X fan (a lot of respect, but there's usually something I'd rather listen to more), but I thought the album was pretty solid.

You preferred the thin, nasal crap that was his old tone? :nuts:

Uh, I wouldn't say his old tone was exactly thin and nasal, dude. :lol:
Sorry, I parsed that as Mike's old guitar tone. :lol:

Call me crazy I guess :shrug: I found his newer tone to be OK, but it could just be the nostalgia behind the other albums since I got into them during a big time in my life. My main gripe was just the songs seemed to drag on a good minute to a minute longer than they should've on some.

Not to mention, they already did an album on the exact same concept and it was heaps better.

Hmm, I might have to catch this in NY. I, for one, loved Paradise Lost.
