SYMPHONY X drummer recovering from heart failure

5444

Two weeks ago, SYMPHONY X drummer Jason Rullo was admitted to the hospital for heart failure. Following a week of medical care, Jason was recently released. His rehabilitation & recovery will take a minimum of 3 to 6 months under doctor supervision. SYMPHONY X band members, World Management, and Nuclear Blast Records worldwide all wish Jason and his immediate family & friends the collective strength to see them through this transition period.

Some words from Jason Rullo:

“I would just like to say that I am happy to be home with my family after what was quite a week. We had a few scary days in there, but I made it through what was hopefully the worst of it.

“Doctors say I have a very good chance for a full recovery, so I plan to be back at 100% even if it takes a while. I will go through cardiac rehab so I can be monitored while returning to form, so that I’ll know when it’s safe for me to return to drumming the way I always have, if not better.

“Thanks to my friends and family for the support, and to the fans, I love you all!”

Fans are encouraged to visit SYMPHONY X’s Facebook and Twitter pages to send Jason their well wishes.

SYMPHONY X’s innovative mixture of heavy metal and progressive rock has made them a favored staple among prog metal fans for almost 20 years. Last year’s Iconoclast debuted at #76 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in the U.S. and at #105 on the Canadian Soundscan Top 200 chart.
