Symphony X - Set The World On Fire

Overlook for a moment the wannabe-distorted vocals of Russel Allen on the latest SX album, and the sort of corny video, and behold the Wonder that is Michael Romeo - guitarist and composer of Symphony X. Observe how flawlessly the rigid verse rhytm resolves into the open and ultramelodic chorus. And most of all; witness the effortlessness with which Romeo pulls off his trademark tapped arpeggios in the solo. Not of this earth!
