For over 15 years Mike LePond has handled the bass duties in one of progressive metal’s flagship bands, Symphony X. He first appeared on their 5th album, and has now been a part of their sound for over 15 years. His duties sandwich him between rhythm section partner Jason Rullo, and guitar shredding extraordinaire Michael Romeo. The band recently released their 9th album, Underworld, and is gearing up for years of touring, starting with a North American jaunt with thrash legends Overkill.
Mike is also fresh off the heels of releasing Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins, which saw him return to his roots, delivering a pure metal performance that any headbanger will appreciate. He is currently working on recording a second album with the band, and hopes to get them into the live setting soon. Finally, Mike is also part of the international collaboration Affector, who released their debut album Harmageddon in 2012.
