The 2011 release of the conceptual album “Nevertime” garnered the band a 2011 SDMA nomination for “Best hard Rock album of the year”.With the 2012 release of “Xenatopia” a heavier and even more powerful progressive attack Symbolic demonstrates a sterling silver craftsmanship of forging a locked down metal sound featuring both brains and brawn.
