Symphony X is galloping into San Antonio for a show at the Aztec Theatre on Friday, June 12.
The band formed in New Jersey in the early-’90s and performs an amalgam of prog, neo-classical and symphonic metal with elements of thrash.
Symphony X's polyrhythms, key-changes and technical guitar melodies evoke imagery of epic medieval battles between elves and witches and orcs — you know, the kind of shit that would make it the ideal band to compose the soundtrack for a big-budget fantasy movie.
Next year's tour will celebrate Symphony X's 25 years as a band.
Tickets ($25) are on sale now.
