Symphony X album nears completion

Symphony X are on course to complete tracking their ninth album by the end of the year, says mainman Michael Romeo.

They’ve been working on the follow-up to 2011’s Iconoclast for the last few months, with bassist Michael LePond having said it’s “not as heavy as the last one.

Romeo reports: “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.”

The album title and a prospective released date have not yet been revealed.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
