Paradise Lost is the seventh studio album by progressive metal band Symphony X, released on June 26, 2007 through Inside Out Music. It is a concept album loosely inspired by John Milton's 1667 epic poem Paradise Lost. The album was the band's first to chart on the . Billboard 200, reaching No. 123 and remaining on that chart for a week, as well as reaching No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers and the top 100 in five other countries.
Symphony X's seventh studio album, 'Paradise Lost', is, simply put, heavy. The majestic sounds of their earlier releases are gone, and the more orchestral feel of their previous two albums have dwindled. Now, in their place, is an all-out assault of the heaviest, beefiest, and arguably some of the most aggressive music you'll ever hear. The song structures, while still maintaining progressive characteristics, are nowhere near as complex as past efforts, and the keyboards don't have as prominent a role in the songwriting.
Paradise Lost Lyrics. In the cold misty morning Gleaming rays awake the dawn Here I stand - a stranger in this land Does your conscience betray you? Falling from grace - feel the Sun on my face Does desire still hold true?

In some regards, Paradise Lost sounds like a revamped Symphony X with a lot of power and energy to spare. An interesting bit of trivia is that the ending of "Revelation (Divus Pennae Ex Tragoedia) reprises the main melody of "The Divine Wings of Tragedy" in gothic-like fashion. Augmenting the powerful sound of the record is the phenomenal quality of the production values. It was hinted in The Odyssey that Symphony X are heading towards a heavier sound, and Paradise Lost is probably the first album of "The new Symphony X". Unfortunately, new isn't always better. The whole new heavier, more approachable direction the band had taken was at the expense of what made them unique at the first place.
ParadiseLost " is the seventh studio album by progressive metal band Symphony X, and it deals greatly with John Milton ' s epic poem " Paradise Lost ". Its release had been delayed numerous times since the announcement on November 16, 2005 that they were going to " start pulling it all together ". The album was released on June 26, 2007.
In the cold misty morning gleaming rays awake the dawn Here I stand - a stranger in this land does your conscience betray you? falling from grace - feel the sun on my face does desire still hold true? Mystified by her beauty - does the hunter pity his prey? Under starless skies all Love must die and fade away Looking down from ethereal skies Silent crystalline tears I cry For all must say their last goodbye - to Paradise
