hopefully the US gets a longer set seeing how Europe is being labeled as a "co-headliner" whereas the tour in April isn't.

According to a friend of mine who went to the show. Warrel missed the plane and couldn't get another flight till the next day. Haha, oh Warrel.

I'll ask her how the new SX songs were live.

Yeah, I'm excited for the show, but I'd love something from V and something besides Inferno from The Odyssey, as much as I do love that song. Pretty phoned in set. Hopefully the new songs sound good.

They played Egypt and part of the Oracle from V. They need to play a different song(s) from the Odyssey.

Communion and the Oracle is probably my favorite SX tune.

They need to play a different song(s) from the Odyssey.

King of Terrors, please.

From my friend who was actually at the show:

The set was about 70 min... yeah that's kinda short, but there'll be a normal tour for the new album in the fall. Anyway, the atmosphere was good and ppl didn't seem to be too disappointed about Nevermore not playing.

The new SX songs sound...ed great, classical SX style, nice vocal lines.. that's all I can say for now

Well, the UK shows will have a longer set because the rest of the package bill aren't playing, but even so... I've seen SX play all of those songs already. I think this pretty much seals me not bothering with their London show . Although to be honest, without the rest of the bill, I wasn't that bothered anyway. I don't know what Nevermore and Psychotic Waltz have got to go and do that's so important they can't play three more shows the week after the rest of the tour.

Pretty good quality video of the new song, "End of Innocence". I have listened almost 5 times now and I honestly love it. My expectations for the new record have now increased considerably.

I'm digging it so far. It's heavier and proggier then anything off Paradise Lost. I'm very excited to see them in May.

I honestly don't really see how it's heavier than anything on Paradise Lost. My big point is that I honestly like it more than anything off of that record except for like 2 songs, so provided it's not the best or one of the top 2-3 songs on the record, my expectations are really, really high. It honestly reminds me a lot of their older stuff, the chorus sounds like classic Divine Wings/Twilight in Olympus stuff.

Something about it feels heavier to me about it. Maybe it's because it's live? I'm not sure, but that and the reminiscent of Divine Wings Of Tragedy/Twilight in Olympus is what Symphony X needed. I'm gad to see they are back on the right track.

As for Paradise Lost, I like the title track (one of the best songs they ever made) Domination and Set The World on Fire, that's about it.

Most certainly agreed that the title track is the best thing on Paradise Lost - but Revelation and Eve of Seduction are definitely my #2 and 3. After that it gets kinda hard to pick - all the rest of the songs have both moments I do actually love but are filled with many things I don't.

Yeah, this song most certainly leans towards what I was hoping for from this new stuff. Something that would take the heaviness and whatnot of Paradise Lost and make it more melodic, diverse, dynamic - with more of the "classic" SX sound.

I sure hope so. Ten songs.

Would it kill them to practice a different song or two? Every song apart from the 2 new ones were played when I last saw them in 2008.

From what I have seen in interviews and such, the first quarter of 2011. so hopefully very soon.

I've never seen Symphony X so I'm excited to see them regardless of set.
