Symphony X

Symphony X decided to drop by in the UK after their Power Of Metal tour of Europe. This Sheffield show was the last of the three dates over here, so before the show I got to have a good talk with Russell Allen about a heap of things. We talk about the band's upcoming double album and further plans, and also possibilities of touring with Star One, Jørn, and the project with Mike Portnoy. Watch the lengthy chat below:

Thanx for the awesome interview Baz!

I laughed when his computer rebooted, with the Windows music. Funny that happened when he was talking about the new album being about machines and computers and stuff. xD

"That's my refridgerator telling you you gotta go cos it's taking over the world... Iconoclast!"

Great interview. Nice one, Baz

Interesting questions, interesting answers.

I'm really curious about the new album (in June it seems) and DVD apparently. They always make us wait so long.

Great job! That was fantastic. I sincerely thank you for inquiring about the project with Mike Portnoy and Allen/Lande! It's awesome to hear him talk about that. And I really would like to know what Jorn is up to too. Oh well... Iconoclast!!

I cannot believe he used to be a knight at Medieval Times... he definitely should have been in "The Cable Guy". Great interview!
