Best Symphony X SongsVote for the BEST song by a really underrated prog. metal band!
The Top Ten
Absolutely an epic! Rated this songs after dream theater's epics
Whoever did not vote for this song is not a true Symphony X fan! This is an absolute masterpiece and one of my favourite songs ever along with Dream Theater's Octavarium and A Change Of Seasons.
This song has everything you want a song to have, Divine wings of tragedy has some unnecessary parts but this does not... You listen the song through and you wont ever get bored, prog in its best ways!
This song is ultimately twenty four minutes off epicness... I gotta say, The Divine Wings Of Tragedy is brilliant, but The Odyssey does it for me.
Such a beautiful song where the composition fits the lyrics and theme perfectly
Why the Hollywood Undead album cover?
This song is just incredibly moving. The entire Paradise Lost album is epic!
Paradise Lost, Paradise Lost... incredible. I love the chorus, its just beautiful
Such a hard choice I almost didn't choose. The choir won me over though. Sorry Oddyssey and Paradise lost!
No question their best song. The Odyssey is good, but this has it beat by a wide margin
This song is truly genius. The six and a half minute instrumental section is one of the most ridiculously progressive things they've ever done, and Russell Allen's vocals are at their peak. It should be in the top 5, at least.
How this long epic is not on the list or simply not even number 1 is beyond my understanding? Well, someone has to bring it up. This song = greatest 20 minutes in music!
A Mix of heaviness, beauty and power. I love how they mixed progressive, thrash and power metal in one song. Easily their best.
An excellent mix of a variety of genres. Catchy, heavy, and melodic.
"How to Start an Album". By Symphony X. Others should learn from this mastery. Best when paired with the epic intro track, "Oculus Ex Inferni".
Wow! This song truly shows the diverse nature of Symphony X. It's a gentle ballad, just voice and piano, then gradually builds toa truly epic metal song. Fantastic musicianship, the guitars and keyboards work beautifully, throughout this magnificent piece, Allen's voice is incredible, showing sensitivity and emotion. Easily their best song (yes, even better than their other epic The Odyssey).
From their new album, a beautiful ballad with a really catchy chorus! It rivals the song "Paradise Lost" in epicness
Symphony X shows how to do it... Whit every single song
But "when all is lost" is crown JeWeLL. Much thanks to russell allen and michael romeo... And the other guys
How can someone not think that this is the greatest song of all time?
Beautiful ballad, backed by a face shredding solo.
Symphony X TRULY outdid themselves this time.
It's going to be next to impossible to create another song like this, in my opinion.
Just simply amazing. I had the same experience listening to this song as I did when I first listened to metropolis part 1 when I was first getting in to dream theater. Simply amazing.
By far, the best prog rock song of all time. I am a huge fan of symphony x, dream theater, circus maximus, opeth, adagio, and star one. This is one of my favorite prog anthems ever.
I Can't believe this song isn't the first one! It's obviously their best one, one of the most epic prog songs all time!
This song captures the essence of fantasy itself without making you cringe, wowing the listener all the way through. One of the greatest metal songs of all time.
Such a beautiful song- from the soft, haunting intro, to the epic chorus, and the amazing guitar solo
This is my favorite song on The New Mythology Suite, that pre-chorus and chorus always gets stuck in my head. This is probably my favorite Symphony X song behind The Odyssey.
Honestly I don't know why this song is so low on this list.
Was nothing less than shocked seeing Egypt so low.
It's one of the best songs I know in Prog Metal
Their most complete song
The melodies in this song are insane
How the hell is this so low?
The best yet from (almost) the best ever. Only Gamma Ray beat this band for me, and this is SX's greatest song off their greatest album. Yet.
What the heck? Why is this all the way at the bottom? Come on this song is really good! The chorus is amazing!
Symphony X's musicianship has become outstanding. This is an underrated song. Deserves more people giving it a chance.
Best one on Paradise Lost. Whatan epic intro
Should be Top 5 Symphomy X song. At least better than the Top 40 Pop Song, "Without You".
Top 5 best song from SX, also the best Alice in Wonderland-themed song ever. Allen sings with such emotion and the musical changes make this an epic SX song.
Amazingly epic heavy song with not ONE but TWO shredding guitar solos from Romeo, really catchy chorus too. One of the best Iconoclast songs for sure!
One of my favourites ever! Extremely catchy guitar line
A great semi-ballad off their upcoming new album, evidence that there has been no drop in quality after a 4-year wait!
I wish I would have written this song! Hands down one of their most beautifully written. Maybe not the most technical, but they're allowed to have some simpler songs in their playbook!
A nice ballad (almost) from Underworld. Nice to hear Russel Allen actually sing again after his five year tenure with Adrenaline Mob.
Great ballad to dedicate a woman!
Still their best song in my humble opinion, but it is the first song I ever heard of theirs, so probably has something to do with it. It is an excellent song, technically proficient and as written before, the guitar work is their stamp, kind of like the guitar intro from Cowboys From Hell for Pantera, just saying!
The guitar part in this song is one of the most amazing things I've ever heard in my life. The rest of the song is good too.
It's fast and well written, this is Thomas Miller's best song. In my opinion
Very powerful start, great vocals, guitar is amazing(! ).
Love this CD, awesome song here.
Guitar riffs on this masterpiece, show why Michael Romeo is one of the best!
Should be at least top 10.
A great place to start for the uninformed Symphony X listener!
From technical point of view is amazing
Romeo's tapping here on the guitar solo is legendary. No tapping has been more melodic than that sus2 major and minor chord successions. It's by far the best symphony x song in terms of technicality and melodicaly
Lovin' that keyboard solo.
Spine chilling fretwork diamond perfect. Symphony x roxxx!
I agree, this song should be in top 10 list easily. Brilliant guitars riff, powerful vocals, aggressive song.
Much better than rated here, in my humble opinion it belongs in the top ten. Guitar work is phenomenal.
