I will debate with anyone, that Dream Theater's lineup with John Petrucci, John Myung, Jordan Rudess, Mike Portnoy and James LaBrie was one of the talented bands to ever form.

Too bad they still sucked.

Re: \M/ETAL Thread

How? I'd love for you to explain why. They have some of the best progressive metal albums ever made. Of course if you dislike prog then yeah, I can see why.

Re: \M/ETAL Thread

I love(d) Dream Theater. JP is one of my favorite guitarists. Portnoy is an awesome drummer. Mike Mangini is one of my all time favorite drummers. Myung is such an underrated bass player. Rudess is a musical genius, and like all genius', he's nuts, and honestly, his overplaying on everything drives me crazy. I prefer the Kevin Moore era. That brings me to LaBrie. Man... I used to like his voice, but ever since FII, his voice drives me up the wall. I'll only listen to the instrumental versions of their last few albums. I can say, him, and him alone, take the whole band down for me now.

Re: \M/ETAL Thread

I was just saying that about LaBrie to my friend yesterday! DT would be so much better now if they turned into an instrumental band solely. LaBrie's voice is goneeeeeeeeeeeee.

Re: \M/ETAL Thread

Eh. I don't really care for Dream Theater either and I love prog.


Anyway I discovered two awesome bands today: Altar of Plagues, and Krallice.  I guess you could say they're black metal with a post-rocky vibe (whatever the hell that actually means). Both very interesting to listen to as they each have a pretty unique style going for them.

Re: \M/ETAL Thread

^ I'm going to look into those bands.
I never fully got into Dream Theater either.

Re: \M/ETAL Thread

Not a huge DT fan. Though I do dig some stuff. Also don't listen to much black metal anymore , mostly just old school stuff. Bathory, Venom, Destroyer 666 and a few others like Darkthrone and Master's Hammer on occasion.

Re: \M/ETAL Thread

I don't listen to it that much anymore either, actually. Every once in a while, though, I'll scope out something new just to see what stands out.  This is the outcome.

I'd like to add The Ruins of Beverast. Both doom and black metal. Kind of in the same way Disembowelment is Grind and Doom.
