Now here is an awesome thread.

Symphony X really has taken a much darker direction. So far, it's sounds heavier and darker than Paradise Lost. The thing I always love about Mike's riffs, is they have the prog-metal complexity but still sound very musical. Love how he often throws in a sort of....."middle eastern" feel. Plus, his tone is killer.

Dehumanized overall sounds really great. Most 6-7 minute songs tend to just get boring but this song holds my interest throughout and I've been listening to it every day since it was posted by NuclearBlast. It's catchy and sweet shredding Jesus........that solo. The lead playing in this song is insane.

I shall surrender my money to this album at once on June 17th.

I'm not sure I can do this accurately, as the St. Anger snare deserves it's own forbidden imaginary section on the number scale. Its the square route of -1.

I am not familiar with St Anger, but personally the worst snare sound I heard is from Symphony X's album The Odyssey

Oh wow, he plays capirson guitars - didn't even notice. Those things are hilarious.

Ugliest headstock and inlay design I have ever seen.

Edit: I like the sound of the snare, just probably wouldn't have chosen it for this kind of music. Transients are too soft sounding. Needs more stick crack.
