SYMPHONY X drummer recovering from heart failure
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!”
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.
