Anybody else listen to them?

Personally, I think they kick ass.

Dream Theater - In the Name of God

How can this be?
Why is he the chosen one?

Saint gone astray
With a scepter and a gun

Learn to believe
In the mighty and the strong

Come bleed the beast
Follow me it won't be long

Listen when the prophet
Speaks to you
Killing in the name of God

Passion
Twisting faith into violence
In the name of God

Straight is the path
Leading to your salvation
Slaying the weak
Ethnic elimination

Any day we'll all be
Swept away
You'll be saved
As long as you obey

Lies
Tools of the devil inside
Written in Holy disguise
Meant to deceive and divide
Us all

Listen when the prophet
Speaks to you
Killing in the name of God

Passion
Twisting faith into violence
In the name of God

Blurring the lines
Between virtue and sin
They can't tell
Where God ends
And mankind begins

They know no other
Life but this
From the cradle
They are claimed

Listen when the prophet
Speaks to you
Killing in the name of God

Passion
Twisting faith into violence
In the name of God
Hundreds of believers
Lured into a doomsday cult

All would perish
In the name of God

Self-proclaimed messiah
Led his servants
To their death
Eighty murdered
In the name of God

Forty sons and daughters
Un-consenting plural wives
Perversions
In the name of God

Underground religion
Turning toward
The mainstream light
Blind devotion
In the name of God

Justifying violence
Citing from the Holy Book
Teaching hatred
In the name of God

Listen when the prophet
Speaks to you
Killing in the name of God

Passion
Twisting faith into violence
In the name of God

Religious beliefs
Fanatic obsession
Does following faith
Lead us to violence?

Unyielding crusade
Divine revelation
Does following faith
Lead us to violence?

This band is probably capable of making bands like Iron Maiden and Manowar sound not cheesy. So fucking lame.

Progressive rock/metal.

Good guitar and good drums, but the vocals aren't the greatest.

The vocalist was trained in opera, if that gives you any indication.

It's like technical metal opera.

so its like metallica S&M?
Funny you should say that. In 2002 Dream Theatre performed Master of Puppets in it's entirety, live. I have heard this bootleg album and it is incredible. I think they did it better them Metallica themselves.

As far as Dream Theatre goes, I'm not a big fan, but I like some of their songs. Especially their Metallica cover songs.

Un, you might be interested in this site if you like Dream Theatre alot. http://www.ytsejamrecords.com/

They are extremely talented, but they put way too much effort into making their songs. I like some technical metal, but this stuff just goes too far for me.

I first listened to Dream Theatre at work. I just got done introducing my co-worker to Alkaline Trio and then she brought out Dream Theatre. I must say I was very inpressed by them. Especially the way they made Metallica songs enjoyable for me! While there are better bands Dream Theatre is damn good.

Yeah seen their live dvd at a party, one of my mates loves them... not the best music to dance to though! Have you heard of COG < favorite rock band ever. They are an australian band so you may not have heard their stuff before.
