The Odyssey is the sixth studio effort of progressive metal band Symphony X. The fourth track, "Accolade II", is a sequel to the famous "The Accolade" from The Divine Wings of Tragedy. "King of Terrors", track number five, is based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, "The Pit and the Pendulum." This line continues in the sixth track, where the seventh track can be seen as a warming up to the grand finale: track eight is a 24-minute musical take on/version of Homer's The Odyssey about the journey home of Greek hero Odysseus.
