Anthriel - The Pathway (2010)
This is an incredibly brilliant prog metal album that sounds very much like Symphony X. The melodies, riffs, vocals, keyboards and solos are all phenomenal. This is a talented band that know the ins and outs of neoclassical prog metal and can make highly complex, but catchy tunes. Overall, it's an extremely impressive debut album and quality-wise can stand up to pretty much anything in Symphony X's catalog (except maybe The Odyssey). I can't wait to hear their next record!
