Dio Disciples features Ronnie James Dio's Band Mates and Friends and is comprised of singers Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest), Oni Logan (Lynch Mob) and Joe Retta (Sweet), guitarist Craig Goldy (Dio), bassist Bjorn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen), keyboardist Scott Warren (Dio, Heaven & Hell), and drummer Simon Wright (Dio, AC/DC, UFO).
As a heavy-hitting dynamic force hailing from the power/prog metal midst of the San Diego, California music scene, Symbolic combines their melodic energy and excitement for what will be their fifth CD later this year.
Since the first three years of their conception, increasingly impressive efforts helped build a strong following locally and internationally. Opening for well-known national acts such as Adrenaline Mob, Fates Warning, UFO, Brian Wheat (of Tesla fame), PHILM with Dave Lombardo, guitar legend Michael Schenker, Doro Pesch and others, it was no surprise that Symbolic found themselves in very close company of great music notables.
Their epic sophomoric release "Nevertime" garnered them a 2011 SDMA nomination for "Best Hard Rock Album of the Year". Radio interest locally and as far away as Chicago (Gregg Kovach), offered the band enormous praise. Billy Sherwood (of Yes and Circa fame) commented upon learning of the band and hearing cuts from their third effort "Disconnected": "Cool stuff indeed…I really dig the band".
With the 2012 release of "Xenatopia", notable music critic and journalist Martin Popoff writes, "Symbolic have demonstrated a sterling silver craftsmanship in the forging of locked down metal with both brains and brawn". A heavier and even more progressive than anything they've done to date under the guidance of producer/engineer Daniel Castleman, “Xenatopia” had corralled the power/prog metal faithful throughout 2013 and 2014. Radio/internet interviews and San Diego radio airplay sealed Symbolic’s position as musically solid and here to stay.
With Scott Bruce (vocals), Steve Potts (guitar), Bobby Fernandez (bass), and Steven Elias (drums), Symbolic’s future is of one of the staunch core foundations of the San Diego music scene.
Former members of San Diego local bands AcidNine and Snakeoil Revival team up to kick out the jams and deliver some real deal Rock n' Roll.
