Symphony X - The Odyssey

"We carouse with the maiden
beneath her eyes the madness lies
...in mystery

I drink deep from the chalice
of gold and jade - my senses fade
...I'm mesmerised

Stay - like those before
I condemn you all - from walk to crawl
...metamorphasised

No - my will it defies her
speak the verse - lift the curse
...she's mesmerised"

Beautiful melodies, flawless song!!!!!

Co-incidentally, just started listening to this album over the weekend. I LOVE the big 80s sound and reverby drums. Can just imagine people in stonewashed jeans and white trainers dancing to this record in their bedrooms back in the day. Fantastic!!

Nowadays,in my opinion,they lost their "touch"...sometimes its sad to see bands stagnate... but they made some good albums such as:Operation Mindcrime,Empire(amazing),The Warning,Queensrych EP(I like 'Queen of the Reich', 'Lady wore Black"-is the most creative song on the album)and of course Rage for Order.

Argh, I can't listen to the sound at work, but that looks great!!!!!

Arjen's such a cool presence on-stage, he's in my mind a f*cking legend.

Very sad to see that I missed Stream Of Passion's London performance in February - had no idea that they'd come over - but I DID see their very first performance in London about 18 months ago

Arjen = The Man.

One of the vocalists will be Epica's Simone Simons ;)

My fave concept album is Epica's The Divine Conspiracy (out in September 07)
and I also love After Forever's Invisible Circles and Autumn's When Lust Evokes The Curse.

Yeah, I read that!

Do Epica pay you for every time you mention their name on forums? Or are they really that good?

haha I do work for them but but that does not involve mentioning their name anywhere. They really are cool! But that's just my opinion. The album got lots of nice reviews though so some people agree with me hihi.

They are quite excellent actually. I'm impressed with Consign to Oblivion, as with the majority of their fans I supposed (and probably that was my introduction to the band)

Plus they do a mean cover of Death's "Crystal Mountain." That alone is worth seeing them live.

Favorite concept albums

What is your favorite art movement?
Mine would have to be deco, nouveau, dadaism, surrealism, and pop art.
My least favorite is impressionism. It just hurts my eyes haha...and not to mention when we had to recreate it in school, it was painstaking
What are yours? Include pics
