Symphony X Survivor - Home Thread
« on: August 31, 2017, 05:55:59 AM »
Hello DTF & welcome to the 2017 Symphony X survivor. This survivor will go through all of Symphony X's discography (including bonus tracks) as well as an album survivor to start out with to decide how many songs from each album go into the finals. First place in the album survivor gets five tracks to the finals, second & third get four, fourth to sixth get three, seventh & eighth get two, last gets one. Apart from that it's standard survivor rules for the most part going through all of Symphony X's discography. All rounds will last 24 hours, & the album survivor begins in one week (September 7th). All results, along with vote tables & round links, will be posted in this thread, but until then, there's nothing here. Hope to see you on when the survivor begins.  ;)
I don't know what else to write here  :justjen

Album survivor results:
#1. The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
#2. Underworld
#3. V: The New Mythology Suite

#4. The Odyssey
#5. Paradise Lost
#6. The Damnation Game

#7. Twilight In Olympus
#8. Iconoclast

#9. Symphony X

Yay! my favorite approach! I'm in, it was a pity to abandon the previous one halfway through.

Forgot to mention that. Whoops :lolpalm:

1 extra song from each album goes to consolations, top 2 consolations go to finals.

If I'm doing the math right (it's still early, only one sip of coffee so far), that's 27 songs in the finals?

So I relistened all Symphony X discography, Iconoclast and Underworld were new for me because I never heard them before. And it was a mistake, great albums, with not so many neo-classical elements like their earlier albums. Very solid discography though, hard to pick the best or the worst. I think it will be the battle between new Symphony X ( after The Odyssey) and the old ( from self-titled to The Odyssey).

I get that for the more metal fans, PL is a high ranking album.  But how the hell did TIO fall behind TDG?  Seriously, that's just ridiculous.

I'm bit surprised of Iconoclast poor result. Is it really a bad album? I like it very much, I was hoping see it in the top 5.

It's not bad per se, it's monothematic. Save the final token ballad / slowish piece, all songs give or take are fast, heavy, brooding and with cliched lyrics. There's no variety.
