The Damnation Game

       After hearing Russel Allen sing with Star One, and hearing The Accolade II on an Inside Out sampler cd I gor from the Dream Theater International Fan Club before its demise, I decided to pick up this album by his permanent band, Symphony X.

       More Neo-classical metal than progressive metal, Symphony X is still a pretty decent band. They don't do anything spectacular, and because of thisThe Damnation Game remains an average album. Good for a listen every once in a while, but nothing amazing.
