Dream Theater fast becoming my favourite band?
« on: March 11, 2011, 04:17:15 PM »
Hey guys (and girls),

I thought I might as well try and make a great first post I guess...

So, yes. As the title suggests, a die hard Iron Maiden fan (me) has found a real contender for the top spot in his mind. Up until the last few days I only had four DT albums (Awake, A Change of Seasons, Systematic Chaos and Images and Words). I loved their music from day one, I don't know whether it was their progressive-ness, or just the fact they were a lot different from what I usually listen to (Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth etc). To put it blunt, they are awesome.

So, I got those albums about a year and a bit ago, I didn't really think about getting anymore until I got into some money. So, what did I do? I spent it on a few more albums, Octavarium, Six Degrees, Falling to Infinity and Black Clouds. I don't think I've heard such epicness since I first began listening to metal as a genre. Basically, I liked what I heard. I suffered a loss in my family recently, and a song from Black Clouds really made me think more positively, and made me think about The Best of Times ;)

Anyway, all in all, the same day as buying these albums I got an email through from Planet Rock mailing list (apparently I listen to it?) saying Dream Theater were touring and I could get into a presale, so, I figured, why not? So, I pestered my mum, made her a sandwich and it was the most expensive sandwich she ever got. £70.80 lighter, I'm going to see the gods in concert!

Well, anyway, thats me. I'm Adam, I'm 18 and I like to drink :P

Cheers!

Yeah, I'm one of those people that when I get onto a good thing, I won't stop buying until I have every album/item etc. For instance, it took me a matter of 6 months to get every Iron Maiden album going. This was when I was 13...

I'm just so excited to be seeing DT in July!

The point of this forum is to make as many bad puns as possible. Do not tell the others I told you of this.

Yeah, if DT isn't your favorite band yet, they will be after you get SFAM.
Orion....that's the one with a bunch of power chords and boringly harsh vocals, isn't it?

I think I'll be the first to say get when dream and day unite. Despite the production and sometimes questionable vocals it really is a solid album.

Yeah, I wanted to see Iron Maiden as well, but I assume they've sold out because I can no longer order a ticket :(
