I love old school metal, like metallica, megadeth, and black sabbath, i dont listen to much new stuff for i cant stand it. most of the time i just listen to my , cds, And then when i do turn on the radeo and listen to what is new i cant stand what i am hearing. I have just recently started listening to more progessive metal like dream theater. i feel like i am stuck in what to listen too. NEED HELP!

As far as i'm concerned, you've answered your own question............



Dream Theater



Sorry im a DT nut- but honestly sometimes i find that i just cycle their albums now and then so their music doesnt get stale.

Maybe try out symphony x? Paradise Lost is a great album smile.gif

I have to agree with you about Dream Theater, my favorite progressive rock band! They are all virtuosos, and Petrucci has technique and tone for days! I, too, cycle through all their albums. Which is your favorite?

I don't know what nu-metal or emo or heavy metal means. They are just labels to pigeonhole music and bands. I like bands with a good rock sound, like Dream Theater, who have all the right ingredients. Any band that exhibits good musicianship, including the singer, is okay by me. I can't stand that screaming crap, or the bands that dwell on death, or dark subjects, or skulls, or whatever their problem is with society at the moment. I think it's time to jump on board the positive image bandwagon for a change. Why all the negativity? Of course, that's just my opinion...

I agree with your second paragraph, not so much the first.
*Prepares to get flamed*

I absoultey worship Petrucci, is a flawless player in my mind and I love watching "Perucci Solo's" of various songs from Dream Theater.

But. The band as a whole doesnt do much for me. Petrucci, Yes. Dream Theater, No.

Just my thoughts smile.gif
