Paradise Lost

Prog-metalists Symphony X begin their new album, Paradise Lost, with a neo-classical instrumental that sounds like it belongs in a horror movie. The spookily titled "Oculus Ex Inferni" is a symphonic piece with vocal chants and speed freak guitar licks. Thus begins a complex exploration of good and evil influenced by 17th century poet John Milton's writings.

Formed in 1994 by guitarist Michael Romeo, Symphony X released their first album that same year in Japan. The New Jersey band changed singers shortly afterward and released their second album six months later. The group began garnering a rabid Japanese and European fan base, which over the course of a few years quickly stretched around the globe. A cross musically between Iron Maiden and Dream Theater, Symphony X has, over the course of eight albums, carved out a unique place in the metal community.

Paradise Lost, much like the poem it's based on, is a lengthy work that takes time to digest. Like most concept discs in the metal genre the story and the songs unfold at a breakneck pace, save for those brief moments when the musical tempest is tamed. "Set The World On Fire" is a dizzying number that rages for five solid minutes before breaking down into a syncopated lead-in to the equally thunderous, "Domination." Both songs feature arresting guitar work by Romeo.

Romeo is joined in the wailing and gnashing of teeth on Paradise Lost by bassist Michael Lepond, drummer Jason Rullo, keyboardist Michael Pinnella, and vocalist Russell Allen. The band members thrash their way through the intricately crafted "The Walls Of Babylon," a venomous cut powered by million-licks-a-second axe work from Romeo and a punishing rhythm section courtesy of Rullo and Lepond. Allen, who doesn't come in until nearly three and half minutes, growls like a man possessed on the eight minute-plus track.

Allen, who can bellow with the best of them, proves he can really sing on the echoing, "The Sacrifice." The piano laced number shows signs of musical brilliance despite it's dark overtones. A metal ballad, the song serves as a calm before the storm that is the apocalyptic, "Revelation." The album's final track attempts to sum up the Paradise Lost story, but in the end leaves the door open for a sequel. Once again, Romeo's guitar playing is arresting.

Symphony X fans will be all over Paradise Lost like darkness on a moon less night.

This CD is a "concept" CD, and is based on Milton's "Paradise Lost." If you are a fan of any variety of metal, you should be able to appreciate this disc. Very solid album from a very underrated band.
