Symphony X are a member of prog-power royalty, and their latest album "Iconoclast" helped further secure that position. Vocalist Russell Allen has only gotten better with age and there are few guitarists more talented than founding member Michael Romeo. "When All Is Lost", one of my favourites from the record, is a good example of everything great about the band. A soft ballad section to start, slowly building up into epic prog-metal guitar madness - what's not to like? I sure am a sucker for an epic build-up. Enjoy!
