SYMPHONY X are currently writing material for their next studio album, tentatively due mid-2010 via their new record label, Nuclear Blast Records. The band's guitarist, Michael Romeo, tells the SYMPHONY X webmaster that the songwriting sessions are "progressing well." He says that the riffs are written and all the ideas are there; they're just trying different arrangements right now. According to the axeman, "Every day is different; we're just doing our thing and trying to make the tunes cool. You put something together one day and then come back the next day and listen to it; sometimes it's cool, and sometimes it sucks and you have to change things around."blabbermouth report
