In a recent interview with United Rock Nations, American progressive metallers SYMPHONY X have signaled via their bassist Michael LePond, their intentions to enter the studio this week, in order to record their upcoming 10th studio album.

“We’re gonna start the drums on Tuesday [September 9], and with all the recording and then the promotion, we hope to have a new album out for the spring,”

[…] “The songs are ready to go. We have ten songs. We may record nine or ten; we’ll see how it goes.”

[…] “Stylistically, it’s not as heavy as ‘Iconoclast’ was. If I had to compare, I would say that it’s a combination of [2002’s] ‘The Odyssey’ and [2007’s] ‘Paradise Lost’ — something in there. It has a lot of classic SYMPHONY X elements in it, which I think a lot of our fans were missing for a few years. So I think our fans will really like this one. It really just focuses on solid songwriting.”

[…] “We don’t have the name of the album yet. Right now we have all the music and we have all the lyrics written down, but we still need to put the lyrics to the songs.”

The band’s latest record goes back to 2011 with “ICONOCLAST”.
