My friend told me about them a few weeks ago and they're now my new favorite band.

Anyone else like them?

I like every song from the 4 albums I got of them. I got The Divine Wings Of Tragedy, Paradise Lost, Twilight In Olympus, and The Odyssey.

So as you can see I like progressive metal. Another good progressive metal band (not as good as Symphony X but very good) is Dream Theater. Their album Images and Words is amazing.

Anyone else have the same taste as me?

A friend of mine introduced me to this band a while back. I like the style, but there are only a few songs that particularly struck with me : Evolution (The Grand Design), Inferno, Of Sins and Shadows, Smoke and Mirrors.

Well you'd think popular would mean good but most popular bands suck.

The best bands are usually underground bands (they're not well known) like Symphony X and Dream Theater.

They don't have a wide spread audience but those who do know them love them (like me :D).

And yea I love Paradise Lost too.

I can tell you one thing.
I bought "The ****ation Game" day one, and since in Europe "Divine Wings Of Tragedy" was supposed to be released a lot later, I bought the Japanese edition for nearly 80 $.
This is how much I love Symphony-X.
I love Michael Romeo, one of the better guitarist of the world.
The solo of Sea Of Lies is nuts



ZOMG! Look at those fatty quick fingers!

That's so wrong it's untrue lol.

For Example:

Iron Maiden = popular
Trivium = popular
Guns N Roses = popular
ac dc = popular
BFMV = popular
In Flames = popular
Metallica = popular
Killswitch Engage = popular
Children of Bodom = popular

They all rule.... and they are all examples of popular awesome bands. I could list them all day if you want....

And Dream Theater are popular for sure.
In Italy they always reach the top 5 of best selling records.

Well I just meant how like crappy rap and other music is somehow so popular when the music is horrible. Just go in to a high school and look at everyone's iPod. 80% of them will have a bunch of crap.

It's all to do with taste, and I actually agree with Dylan to a certain degree. I mean, of the list you have there, I really hate BFMV and Killswitch Engage, and, to some extent, Metallica too. But why are they popular? 'Cause they're mainstream, you know, middle of the road ;) The bands that I like are not as popular, specifically because they aren't mainstream. But their will to experiment earns them a lot of respect (Tool, Opeth and Porcupine Tree are prime examples) :)
