Symphony X / "Eve of Seduction" / Paradise Lost (6) / June 2007

Artist: Symphony X
Original Album: Paradise Lost
Track: Eve Of Seduction

The opening riff to this song is enough to make it stand out from the rest of the album, and the rest of the song keeps the momentum going better than a lot of the other songs I've heard from the band. I've said before that I think Russel Allen has improved vastly since V: The New Mythology Suite and Dawn of a Million Souls, and (for now) I stand by that opinion. He sounds a lot more 'slightly evil' than he used to, more distinctive, and more enjoyable to listen to and even attempt to sing along to. Without that, I wouldn't be able to say that I thought the song lived up to the promise the intro makes, but it does, which is fantastic as it has turned out to be a crowning high tempo glory on what many critics have called the best Symphony X album.

    Haha, I'm right! Malmsteen's upped his game by hiring Ripper Owens now though, don't you think? If things don't work out with Symphony X Russel could always cue up to replace Ripper, track record shows that Ripper's never stayed in a band past 2 albums. LOL. I will check out the tracks from Odyssey that I haven't already heard. Inferno (unleash The Fire) is already one of my favourites of theirs, but yeah, only know two or three tracks from it.
