That’s right, folks.

American progressive metal legends Symphony X will enter the studio this week to begin recording the follow-up to 2011’s Iconoclast for an early 2015 release.

“We’re gonna start the drums on Tuesday [September 9], and with all the recording and then the promotion, we hope to have a new album out for the spring,” Symphony X bassist Michael LePond told United Rock Nations last week.

He continued:

“The songs are ready to go. We have ten songs. We may record nine or ten; we’ll see how it goes.”

“Stylistically,” LePond said, “it’s not as heavy as Iconoclast was. If I had to compare, I would say that it’s a combination of [2002’s] The Odyssey and [2007’s] Paradise Lost — something in there. It has a lot of classic Symphony X elements in it, which I think a lot of our fans were missing for a few years. So I think our fans will really like this one. It really just focuses on solid songwriting.”
