I guess Symphony X had their own guy on the mixing desk as the sound soon improved by factor of about 1000 during their first couple of numbers. I was surprised, but not unhappy, they played all of their latest album Underworld, but it is a great album so no worries there. This was the first time I have seen the band and must say that lead singer Russell Allen is a metal god! Aside from his superb singing, his ability to work an audience was fantastic. You have to wonder why Dream Theater didn't poach him years ago!
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me so I borrowed the above picture from Bristol 24/7 and recommend you read their much better review of the night here!
