Ha! Looks like 2017 got off to a juicier symphonic start than I expected. A few watery sun rays hit us already late last year, with a couple of Symphonic Metal players turning in some pretty sturdy material.
Even some of the ‘established’ bands, have seen the light and kicked it up a couple of notches. But of course, not nearly enough to counter the same-same, but different legion that likes to dominate the genre.
