Symphony X returns with yet another masterfully crafted collection of new material - this time inspired by Dante's Inferno. One man's trip to hell and back is certainly an apt choice of concept from this veteran power/prog outfit who have lyrically drawn heavily from great works of fiction, historical figures and mythology over the span of their 20 year career. With every release they've managed to change things up just a bit without straying too much from their tried and true formula and without sacrificing consistently great quality. And where 2011's Iconoclast was a bit of a departure - with a much more stripped down heavy metal assault and a futuristic lyrical theme - Underworld feels like a bit of a return to the bands' root sound. Where Iconoclast brought new fans into the world of Symphony X, this release will likely find most of its favor with those of us who have followed this band since inception. That said, this is not a return to The Divine Wings of Tragedy (although I love the lyrical references to that record in "Nevermore") or even The Odyssey for that matter. Instead, they've culled ideas from all of their works making this one of their most diverse releases to date. And while it may not be as cohesive as V - The New Mythology Suite, these songs flow together seamlessly. The end result is extremely satisfying because it hits on all levels - the wicked Romeo riffs, the lush melodies, the passionate and intense Allen vocals, the complex rhythms, the choral elements all weave together in grand fashion.

I hear 3 major differences in this release compared to any of their other works. In addition to drawing from their past, they've made a clear effort to write songs that are more accessible ("In My Darkest Hour" for instance) and at times almost commercial ("Without You").

New album has addicting melodies. It's heavy, progressive, and has all elements we all know and love about Symphony X. Probably a bit more accessible than previous album Iconoclast, which I also love. I have not stopped listening to it since I purchased it. I would recommend this album for any fan of well crafted intelligent heavy metal. You hear pieces of some of their earlier material mixed in with their more heavier approach found on recent albums. This is probably my favorite release by them simply because its probably the most diverse album of their careers. They begin with "Overture" an epic prelude with horns, choirs, and metal guitar playing. It sets the mood perfectly leading into "Nevermore", an onslaught of guitar euphoria with great double bass drum work and an insane guitar solo. Title track "Underworld" is a heavy thrashy song with prog elements. "Without You is a bit of softer song with interplay between acoustic/electric guitar and memorable chorus with big vocals. Easily radio friendly if only they had the balls to give it a shot instead of the same crap day in day out. "Kiss of Fire" is an intense and heavy track with choirs and a surprising blast beat that fits the song quite well. "Charon" is an exotic song with a middle eastern influence in the guitar solo and another memorable chorus. "To Hell and Back" is their mini epic I suppose clocking in at over 9 minutes, yet it flows well never leaving listener bored and the band not overstaying their welcome. It features an almost cinematic intro and a mid point heaviness that will leave you with a neck brace after so much head banging. "In My Darkest Hour" is a short and sweet track reminiscent of bay area thrash and great lead work as usual.Read more ›

Good to have Symphony X back after a 4 year hiatus. I know that Russell Allen has been keeping himself busy with Adrenaline Mob, but I was not sure if the others in the band have been doing the same....doesn't matter. The album is solid. There is much to like here for new and old fans of the group. To me, it sounds like a complete blend of all eras; from the mid-90's through Paradise Lost. In fact it is pretty amazing that they came up with a full album, of original music, that really doesn't sound much at all like their previous album, Iconoclast. Allen and company have not lost a step though, and this seems very fresh. One thing they never lost was the tight playing and Allens soaring roars with change to clean singing, seamless transitions.

Now I am not saying Iconoclast was a bad album, but it seemed to have more filler than you would expect from a band like Symphony X. This record brings back the focus found on The Odyssey, Paradise Lost and any of the late 90's works like TDWOT and TIO.

This is a recommend for fans of progressive metal, fans of Symphony X who may have been turned off by Iconoclast and fans of progressive rock in general. I would personally recommend all albums from TDWOT through Iconoclast. Though I just don't think Iconoclast is as strong for Symphony X; it would be strong for most any other metal band.

Another top notch progressive metal masterpiece from Symphony X. It is one of the those CD's that know from the first couple of seconds that you are going to be listening to it again and again. The musicianship is top notch, the vocals are solid, the songs are meaningful...you know all the stuff that popular pop music isn't.

If you love music, rock or metal you will love this disc, pick it up today. It's easily worth the $10.

Only complaint is Amazon didn't offer AutoRip on this disk.
