Symphony X is hoping to get an album out either this year or next year, but guitarist Michael Romeo isn't waiting around. Romeo has announced his first solo album in 24 years titled War Of The Worlds / Pt. 1 due out on July 27. The album features Romeo on guitar, Black Label Society bassist John DeServio, ex-Ark and current Labÿrinth drummer John Macaluso, and vocalist Rick Castellano.
You can check out Romeo's new track "Black" below, which is sure to sate the appetite of any Symphony X fan. Seriously, if this is how Romero's solo work is going to be, then I am 100% on board with War Of The Worlds / Pt. 1.
