Interview with Mike LePond (Silent Assassins, Symphony X)

September 15th, 2014

Interview with Mike LePond
(Silent Assassins, Symphony X)

by JP

ml1

You are one of the only guys in Symphony X who has not done some sort of solo work outside the band. Do the other guys tease you or was it a matter of seeing how fun those outside project can be? In a related note, you also seem to be the busiest member outside of Symphony X. Where do you find the time?

Hahaha!! No, the guys never teased me about this. I have always dreamed of releasing a classic heavy metal album. When Symphony was touring the world for the Iconoclast, I put all the songs together and now it’s finally done!! Yes, when we are off the road, I love doing other projects. I just love to play.

Symphony X takes a long time between albums, does that get frustrating, or does it just give you time to other fun stuff?

It’s frustrating because I love recording and touring with the band, but I understand these amazing songs need time to be perfected. So, during the downtime, I keep myself busy.

ml2

Onto your current project, tell us about the formation of Silent Assassins. How important is it in this digital age to have physical product for the few remaining loyalists? In a related note, how did the fund-raising campaign go? What was your experiences with it?

In the modern age, digital downloads are taking over, but there is no greater feeling for me, than holding a physical product in my hands. We will always carry physical product for the faithful. The fundraising campaign was an amazing experience. It allowed me to forget about the record companies and deal with the fans directly. I believe that this is the future for music.

ml5

Explain some of your inspiration for the cover art. It reminds me of a Trojan horse. In a related not, tell us about your choice of title and the meaning behind it…or is it just one of those cool sounding names?

The cover art is based on the title track called Silent Assassins. It is all about the Trojan war. The Silent Assassins were the Greek warriors hiding inside the trojan horse. You could also call the players on my CD, silent assassins.

ml4

Tell me about the performance of Alan Tecchio. To me it seems to be one of his finest performances in a while.

Alan’s vocals were exactly what I needed for this record. His voice is tough and hard, but with tremendous melody and class. And he performed magnificently in the studio. One of the best vocalists out there I think.

I know you have a lot of star firepower on the album, who played drums?

Yes, lots of star power on this project. Besides Alan, I had Metal Mike on lead guitar. Michael Romeo programmed the drums, played keyboards and played some leads.

Did you and the guys in your solo project get together and jam at all, or was it a matter of everyone working apart and assembling it later?

There were no rehearsals for the record. I did scratch vocals for Alan to hear and gave Metal Mike the songs to play lead on.

ml3

Do you have any plans to tour the album, with this lineup or another?

I would like to do some festivals or cruises with this project. It would always be me and Alan with other hired musicians.

How has preliminary response been?

The Preliminary response has been wonderful. All the reviews have been very positive and I’m really excited for the release date.

Tell us a bit about your gear for our gear heads out there!  Did you use a special set-up for the recording?

For the recording, I had my bass direct on one track. On the other track I used my Tech 21 Sansamp for overdrive. When I play on stage, I use my Peavey 8×10 cabinet with a Peavey Tour 700 head.

What is next on your horizon?

Symphony X is now recording our next CD, so next year I will be on the road with them. I will also begin working on a second solo album.

70000 Tons Of Metal 2014

March 10th, 2014

70000 tons Of Metal is the biggest heavy metal cruise on the planet. It has gained and created a loyal and fanatical following amongst metal fans around the globe in a short few years. Even though there were a lot of discussions, and even some outrage on the official 70000tons forum and social media, about the long silence while waiting to hear about the booking of the bands. However, the whole cruise was a surrealistic experience for journalists and fans alike. Spirits were not dampened by a rainy day which whipped the Caribbean sea and the ship, Majesty Of The Seas, about.  The metallic mayhem on the sea sailed from Miami, Florida to Costa Maya, Mexico and back. Here is the brief write-up of all these bands who appeared on the ship.

February 17th, 2012
SYMPHONY X

SYMPHONY X

In a recent interview with the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, SYMPHONY X’s founding member & guitar virtuoso Michael Romeo shared his background about playing clarinet as a child, taking piano lessons at age 10, and discovering this passion for electric guitar while in his teens which led him to a career in music.

“You write something one day and then you come back a couple months later after you’re done touring and you listen to it and you’re like, `Man, oh no, it’s not as good as I remember,’” shares Romeo, modestly.  After eighteen years of SYMPHONY X’s longevity, he admits: “I love music and I still love doing it, the whole creative thing.”

SYMPHONY X CONFIRMED FOR SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL 6-9 JUNE 2012!

November 7th, 2011
SYMPHONY X

SYMPHONY X

Since the early 90’s, many a progressive metal band has tried to repeat the success of Dream Theater. There is no doubt as to who have been the most successful: Symphony X. The band was formed by guitarist Michael Romeo in 1994, released their debut the following year and got their break in 1997 with their third album ”Divine wings of tragedy”. As it turned out, this was only the beginning. Today, Symphony X are actually bigger than ever. Their two most recent albums, ”Paradise lost” (2007) and the most recent release ”Iconoclast” (2011) in particular, have broadened the band’s fanbase most impressively. Then again, these are two of the very strongest progressive metal releases in recent years – imagine a darker, rougher Dream Theater with classical influences and Russell Allen’s brilliant vocals as the icing on the cake.

Tickets are available at our website: www.swedenrock.com. There you can also find more information about tickets, prices and accommodation.

Around 70 bands will perform on our 5 stages next summer. The following ten have been confirmed so far:

MÖTLEY CRÜE

BLUE ÖYSTER CULT

DIMMU BORGIR
SYMPHONY X
EDGUY
GAMMA RAY
DANKO JONES
PENTAGRAM
BONAFIDE
HELL

ICED EARTH, SYMPHONY X ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN 2012 CO-HEADLINER TOUR

October 31st, 2011
ICED EARTH

ICED EARTH

What do you get when you mix equal parts Dystopia and Iconoclast?

One of the most eagerly anticipated metal tours of 2012.

“I’m excited to tour with SYMPHONY X,” ICED EARTH founder Jon Schaffer said. “They’re phenomenal musicians and very cool guys. This co-headliner tour will be a great experience for the fans. It is also way overdue for us to play a proper tour of North America. Get ready!”

SYMPHONY X guitarist Michael Romeo echoes Schaffer’s enthusiasm.

“We are very excited about the upcoming North American Tour with Iced Earth,” Romeo said. “We first met Jon & the guys a few years back and they were really cool. When the idea of a Co-Headline tour surfaced, we thought it would be awesome. The fans can expect a night of great music from both bands. We look forward to seeing you all real soon!”

The three-month, 30+-date, co-headliner tour begins January 31st in Hartford, Connecticut, and concludes March 10th in Clifton Park, New York.

At that point, ICED EARTH will continue another week – without SYMPHONY X – for five more dates.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale exclusively on Oct 31st via these websites:

http://tixx1.artistarena.com/icedearth/

http://www.enterthevault.com

 

VIP tickets for ICED EARTH are available through the Artist Arena link.

Schaffer formed ICED EARTH in Tampa, Florida, in 1984. Since then, he has released 10 studio albums, the newest being the highly-acclaimed Dystopia (October, 2011) – which debuted at #67 on the Billboard Top 200 chart – one live album, two compilations, three boxed sets, and several DVDs. Thanks to massive worldwide sales — and rabidly loyal fans – ICED EARTH has earned a seat in the pantheon of America’s most successful heavy metal bands.

SYMPHONY X

SYMPHONY X

North America’s progressive metal masterminds SYMPHONY X would like to assure everyone that their upcoming North American headlining tour will still go on as planned.  In fact, SYMPHONY X will now be playing a longer set for their fans who have been eagerly waiting to see the band perform live again since 2008.  Still joining SYMPHONY X on the road beginning on April 21st in Philadelphia and through May 22nd in West Springfield, Virginia are Boston‘s Powerglove and Montreal’s Blackguard.

 

SYMPHONY X guitarist & founding member Michael Romeo checks in about the tour:

 

“Some of you may be disappointed that Soilwork, and just recently Nevermore, left the tour; we share your frustration.  We were looking forward to taking such a great line-up out on the road, but shit happens; best of luck to those bands in the future.

 

That being said, we’re still psyched about getting back on the road and giving the fans a full-on, killer show every night.  We plan on doing some tracks from our upcoming CD, Iconoclast, and are really excited to be playing them for our North American fans for the first time ever.  It’s going to be awesome!”
