Just listening to The Yes Album when I suddenly remembered we got quite some way through a Yes survivor. What happened there? I don't remember it being completed.

As a bump/reminder, I will be doing the Dream Theater 2017 Survivor, beginning in the New Years (either on New Year's Eve or Day), and will precede it with an Albums Survivor! If there's time, I may resurrect some of my other DT-related mini-Survivors that I have done in the past - Twelve-Step Suit Movements, Twelve-Step Suite Songs, All Multi-Movement Songs, DT Openers, DT Closers, and maybe others if there's demand for them.

Hopefully doing all of this will revitalize my love for DT as, even though they released an album earlier this year, I've really strayed away from listening to them in recent years.

Marc, I'll be sure to participate! I'm fairly positive this is going to be awesome.

Also, as a brief reminder, I'm going to start Ayreon/Arjen Lucassen Survivor next year. The actual voting will begin once Kamelot Survivor is over, but I have a few things I want to run before we proceed with the voting, so the threads will begin to appear well in advance. Keep an eye on the Polls / Survivors section at the end of December and/or the beginning of January. I won't say much about it now (though I spilled some information to one or two people already), but I'm really excited for this. I hope we can gather a decent crowd of voters for this Survivor.

I would like to start a Pain Of Salvation survivor starting next year. I think there will be enough people to vote. The survivor will include also the new upcoming album, we will vote for it on April more or less, doing polls lasting 1 day. I think we will be familiar with the new album at that moment
Watch the POLLS/SURVIVOR section for the Pain Of Salvation survivor!!

With the Opeth survivors wrapping up, I was wondering if anyone was interested in a Symphony X survivor? Like Opeth, SX has been completed at 2012 and I think 4 years is good enough for people to participate.

I would join too with Symphony X!

I'd love also a power metal one (Blind Guardian and Avantasia the most), but I'm afraid there's not enough following for that.

I just realized that this forum is now being overrun with Prog Metal bands, not that that's a bad thing! Opeth is almost done, with Haken not far behind, while Dream Theater, Symphony X, Ayreon, and Pain Of Salvation have all recently started.

All of these great bands getting survivors now is making me want to go back and really dive into prog metal some more (at least, more than recent DT and Haken from last year). I may not be able to participate in these new survivors (as I don't feel knowledgeable enough to rightfully vote in many of the albums), but I want to thank everyone else who is running them for doing so! Let's all keep up the good work and hope 2017 is a great year for survivors here! :tup

Although it hasn't been an year, I was thinking if Opeth fans would be interested in a Mega Opeth Survivor? I know this is Dream Theater forums, but it isn't against the rules so why not? It should be interesting. I won't do only albums and songs but maybe instrumental passages, best instrumentals, best vocal album, etc among others. The problem is participants. Would you be willing to participate in this huge survivor?

I think it will be fun.

Aren't you already running a survivor?

Oh I won't be running it now. If people agree to it, I can prepare the Opeth Survivor For around this September for it.

And yeah once SX gets finished.

As with the previous one I'd participate in album rounds from Blackwater Park and forward. I don't think I know their music well enough to dive into those deeper survivors though, like specific sections and stuff.

Well, if somebody is up to, you can continue with the steven wilson survivor - whether just covering his solo career or his whole discography, it's up to you.

I'm thinking, after the Dream Theater Survivor is over, that I would do a Genesis Survivor again. I'm fairly certain I ran the last one, but that was about 5 years ago, so I wouldn't mind bringing it back, especially being the 10th anniversary of the last remasters that came out. I've been on a HUGE Genesis kick lately and would enjoy doing a survivor of their music again. I'll post in the General Music Discussion thread for Genesis to gauge interest as well.

EDIT - It was five years ago, back in 2012, and it ran from March to October, but with the double-round format that I've been doing with Rush and Dream Theater, it'll take half that time.
