Title: DTF Official Newb Welcome Thread v. 2.0 (Introduce yourself here!)
Post by: XianL on April 30, 2009, 08:46:08 PM
As you may have deduced from the title, this is our newb-greeting thread!

Introduce yourself, tell us a bit about yourself if you like, where you're from, who you listen to, anything you'd like to share! You'll get a warm welcome from us, or at least a playful teasing.

Ok, well, I'll be the first person then!

Hey all! I've been a lurker on the original (official) forums, and the previous incarnation(s?) of these forums for ages...but actually decided to get involved now. I'm a huge DT fan, fairly obviously I guess, but they hold a special place for me as the band that got me back into music when I was younger...after becoming bored of mainstream stuff. A recommendation from a friend opened a whole new world for me, which has been amazing. There is nothing quite like getting all hyper for a new DT record!   :D

In terms of music I listen to all sorts of stuff now, but particular favorites are Threshold, Transatlantic, Pink Floyd, Angels & Airwaves (can't explain that, just love the style), Rush and Galahad. There are tonnes more, but those are what come to mind.

As for background, I'm a (soon to be) Computer Science graduate from England and work in defence.

Well, I'm quite a lurker that posts nonsence from time to time. DT were my way into not only progressive music, but they also inspired me to explore all types of music. Music that the average metalhead would hate me for. :P If there's any swedish people out there, I'm a huuuuuge fan of Glenmark/Eriksson/Strömstedt, among other "embarrasing" music.

I also have my own progressive band that plays music inspired by DT and Opeth. We just got to the semifinal of an international competition called Emergenza, where we finished in the fourth spot, not making it to the finals. (The swedish finals, that is...)

I'm sure there's other things to be said about me, but read my posts if you want to find out. ;)

Glenmark/Eriksson/Strömstedt is pop sung in Swedish.

They did the Swedish anthem for the World Cup in football/soccer 1994.

Been lurking since about a couple months after Systematic Chaos came out, signed up in August of last year and lurked some more. Started posting once the boards came back last week.

and as of right now since it changes every month my favorite bands are Of Machines, Pawa Up First, god Is An Astronaut, The Mars Volta, and Mastodon.

Hey everybody, just got here. After a few months of on and off lurking I've decided to get an account. My friend introduced my to Dream Theater last fall and I found out what I was missing. Not long after, I was astonished again by Ayreon and Arjen's interesting Progressive Metal based storytelling. From then on I've been hooked on the progressive rock and metal genres. I'm not sure about my favorite band, but so far my favorite album is The Dark Side of the Moon, truly incredible stuff.

Can you tell us why metal/prog metal is so big in Sweeden/Scandinavia? I've always been curious about that, the region must have the highest number of metal bands per capita in the world.

Hi everyone  :D

I´m from Mexico (don´t worry, no signs of swine flu from me  ;D ). I´m 15 years old and I play mainly drums and percussion but I like to noodle with other instruments as well.

Curiously I got into Dream Theater because of Liquid Tension Experiment; I asked a friend for some cool instrumental bands and he told me of LTE. I was mainly into classic rock but then I heard Universal Mind and my musical life totally changed  :metal . After that I checked out Dream Theater; I bought Awake and was totally blown away. I have been hooked into them since then.

Besides Dream Theater and LTE, I really enjoy Gentle Giant, Rush, Yes, Genesis (mainly before Hackett left),  Kansas, The Flower Kings, Riverside, and in other genres I like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Santana, The Police, Rage against the machine, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, etc.

And I am truly awaiting the new Dream Theater album  :metal

I've noticed that with a lot of past and present Dream Theaters fans, myself included.  It's very interesting that no matter where your musical tastes lie at the time you're exposed to Dream Theater, if you end up becoming a fan of the band, that fandom ends up drastically redirecting the progression and evolution of your musical tastes.  When I was first exposed to Dream Theater, my musical evolution was headed more towards post-grunge bands such as Evans Blue and Dark New Day.  DT comes along and all of a sudden I'm a proghole.  It's just interesting how much Dream Theater sets you off course like that.

No idea. But yeah, you're right about that. Many of my favorite metal bands are indeed from Sweden. Opeth, Pain of Salvation, Evergrey... :metal I've heard someone say that since the winters here are so cold and cruel, all one can do is sit inside and write sad, long progressive songs. Which seems to fit both Opeth and Evergrey at least. :P

But there's also a problem with that, and that is, as a new band, to gain attention. There is a great metal and club scene here (at least in Stockholm) but it's kinda hard distinguishing (tough word to spell, whew...) yourself from all the other bands. You have to be either really, really good or have something that makes you stand out from the rest of the bands. It's really tough, believe me, I know...

 Hi there, my name is Jaak Erik (you can call me Jack Eric ;D if it's easier). I live in Northern Europe, in Estonia, Tallinn (capital). I'm at the age of 16 and a 10th grader in gymnasium (I don't really know what would it be in the United States but on my age you can probably find it out).
 The first DT song I heard was Voices and I remember being particulary fond of the guitar solo (I was at the age of 10 or less)
Also Solitary Shell clicked on me when I was 12 or 13. I began appreciating DT when I was 15. The first album was SFAM, which I unfortunately "over listened". At the moment I like I&W best, some Awake material, 2nd disc of 6DOIT, Octavarium (song) and a bit of SC (TMOLS and ITPOE). I haven't listened 1st disc of 6DOIT, FII and TOT.
I first discovered dreamtheater.net (Surprise!) and mikeportnoy.com, DTF I found quite recently.

 I like to play football (not American), tennis (which I practise regularly and I'm being coached in a club as well), drumming (know the basic beats but nowhere near to prog or double-bass pedal) is also a nice thing, I'm also into history (20th century is the best).

 DT at the moment for me is da best, sometimes I listen to Circus Maximus and Nightwish; I also have some Rush, Marillion and Spyro Gyra in my mp3. I don't hate any music in general, however, I loathe the formula of a 3 minute pop song with lyrics that are repetitive and plain and drum machine in the background accompanied with a video of half-naked women shaking their bodies around.

 When it comes to TV series and programs then I find reality-shows really interesting and intriguing, history programs and nature programs are also my preferences. Also British comedies (Mr Bean, Yes Minister, Allo Allo). But as a contrast I also like the Simpsons and South Park.

 I am also interested in politics and international politics. I recently studied political philosophy and we had an American who lives in Estonia as our teacher. From ideologies I like nationalism as long as it is not to expand a country's territory but rather to establish a nation-state in a land which has historically been habited by that nation. I don't like extreme left and right and I will ALWAYS hate Russian communism and Stalin for destroying my homeland (and various others) during WWII and Putin still denying it. Also Soviet Union for strangling other Eastern European states.
Recently I have grown fond of linguistics especially when it comes to comparing languages and I actively analyse the Estonian language.

 I am not that much religious but I believe in God as "something" and I also believe that people have invented all the gods out of need to explain why weird things happen and also to have "Someone Like Him Them" up high looking after them. I have been baptised in Lutheran church. At the moment I also study Latin and we're teached by a Spanish priest and a lot of our text are connected with Christ.

Okay, I'm in the right place so.

Hello everyone, I'm from Spain and I'm sixteen years old. I can't play any instrument, so I'm just a music enjoyer.

I also listen to some 70s prog rock, avant-garde, jazz fusion, old school hard rock... bands like Van der Graaf Generator, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Pink Floyd, Rush, Yes, Mr. Bungle/Faith No More/Tomahawk/Mike Patton, The Beatles, Anathema, Yann Tiersen, Riverside, Porcupine Tree/Blackfield/Steven Wilson, Sigur Rós, White Lion, Asia, Uriah Heep, Gordian Knot, Incubus, Europe, The Alter Boys, The Flower Kings, Focus and some other bands. I love especially Miles Davis music, Kansas, Steve Vai, Frank Zappa and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Does anyone has a Last.fm account?

And I can't stand spanish music (except of Avalanch and Mamá Ladilla, but they are quite regular...).

I Love some specific literature. I think, during all this years living here, I think now I can say that the only advantadge of being an spanish is that you can read spanish literature without translating it. And definitely is the language with best authors in the Planet Earth. Some I like are Arturo Pérez-Reverte, Mario Vargas Llosa and Gabriel García Márquez. My all-time favourite is Juan Marsé. I also like Franz Kafka and rusian literature.

TV... well, as usual, spanish TV is crap. Some TV Shows I like are My Name Is Earl, Friends, 24, Without a Trace, House MD... I don't see very much TV.

Another great interest: Geography and History. I spend so much time on my own surfing the Wikipedia or whatever (sometimes I try to think if I have a problem... but then I forget it anyway lol), and I have some friends that they like it so much, so... I'm an alive encyclopedy of whatever between the first empires and WWII.

As my nickname says, I like basketball. I consider almost a purist of that sport, a happy viewer. I don't play it professional anyway. And I feel like I'm losing my time when I see that promarketing stars prototypes playing. Favourite teams are Utah Jazz and Golden State Warriors.

Anything else to add. I will need some time to accostume myself here. And sorry for my english, one of the reasons I'm here is that I have to improve it. I'll try to write clear so.

Thanks to glaurung for finding the thread for me!

Name is Tricia, you can call me chkn! I'm in Phoenix metro area, Arizona, USA.

I recently was introduced to DT about 2 months ago and haven't looked back since. My boyfriend played me Scenes and by Fatal Tragedy I had to have the entire discography. It took me a while to branch out to the other albums and I'm still digesting them. Yet, as my friends have repeatedly told me, I've become kind of obsessed in learning the songs/albums and understanding them musically and lyrically. I think alot of my love for this band is that its not just music and words pasted together. There's so much underlying there to look for and understand that just doesn't exist in other music.

Funny thing to go from that to explaining my other favorite genre's and music. I'm mostly a listener of punk which tends to not have those elements that I love about DT. Favorite punk bands are Rise Against, Bad Religion, Anti-Flag, Pennywise.... I do however listen to a wide range. I love The Who, Pink Floyd, The Police... the list goes on. I'm just a huge fan of music in general. I love going to concerts, mostly prefer the smaller, more intimate settings. I created a list of bands I've seen, 160 and growing.

I can play a few instruments, but haven't picked one up in years. I think being a musician or having musical knowledge definitely increases someones pleasure in DT. There just seems to be a connection there.

Aside from music, I'm a rabid hockey fan. Favorite team is the Colorado Avalanche - recently sunk to the bottom of the league, but they'll get their feet under themselves in a few years. Graduated from ASU 1.5 years ago with a degree that I don't use, but don't really feel that bad about it.

Being fairly new to the band, please go easy on me for not understanding all the shorthand abbreviations or all the ins and outs of the music. I recently figured out about the 12 step suite... so I'm behind the times and working on catching up! I've seemed to have bored my friends with my constant DT talk, so thats why I'm here! I figure I can't bore other DT fanatics!

A lot of people on this board have a first language other than English, so I think we're pretty patient with people who are working on their English.  Not that you need to worry--your English is WAY better than my Spanish.  :lol

I think alot of my love for this band is that its not just music and words pasted together. There's so much underlying there to look for and understand that just doesn't exist in other music.

:tup  This is the exact same thing that drew me to DT and prog music in general. 

Welcome to you both.   :metal

Thanks! I haven't really been into prog music.... as far as I know. Maybe I have and just don't realize it. At one point, I even dismissed concept albums. Now I can't get enough of them. Aside from Scenes, Quadraphenia, In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3, and Mindcrime rank at the top for me, but I feel I'm just breaking the surface.

Hi. My name is Jen and I live in Lebanon, Pennsylvania (near Hershey PA, the home of Hershey Park for those non locals that know PA for that).

I play the piano and sing in my church choir. I am also on a puppet team at my church. If you are interested in more information just ask me, I'll be glad to share :D.

I consider myself pretty creative with crafts and things (and music too). I am average intelligence and I'm going into a Registered Nursing Career. I am currently attending Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) Lebanon Campus and plan to transfer to the main Harrisburg Campus of HACC.

About Dream Theater I really admire them musically and I owe the world to my boyfriend (who is also on the forums) for getting me into DT!

Not sure if this is "accepted" within this forum or not (Admins should think about making an intro forum), but just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.  Seems like a great forum and would like to stick around.

So I'm 24, from Chicago.  Have only been listening to Dream Theater for about 6 months-1 year or so.  I originally found out about them through Guitar Hero World Tour because Pull me Under was a song on there (I know, Guitar Hero, I'm sorry).  Loved the song and not long after I purchased a copy of Images and Words and have loved their music since.  I think "Take the Time" is currently my favorite song by them, give it a week and it will change I'm sure.  I saw DT live when they came to Chicago and featured Zappa Plays Zappa, and WOW, great time.

So that should be about it, hello everyone  :P

I've noticed quite a few members have XBL cards as their sig and some have GH and RB in recently played.  Nice  :tup
Thanks. I'm guessing you also do the same, right? :metal

It's the "cool" thing to do when you're 14.

I don't do it because I think it's cool, I do it because it has become part of my common vocabulary. Try going an hour without saying "it."
Saying "it" as in "it" or as in "curse words".

Because then you gave an example you can't really give. "It" is a necessary part of one's vocabulary. Curse words aren't.

But they are to me. I did use them so much because it was cool, at around 12-13, that now I can't stop. It's like a need re-hab for swearing.

@ ResultsMayVary: Yes, quite a few.  On GH:M the most.  GHWT bores me, GH3 is epic though, and RB2 I took a break from.

I don't have a RB2 guitar so it's hard to play that with the GH guitar but i play GH:M and GH:WT most of the time.

Look at it this way:  swearing can be very effective, when used in moderation and in well-chosen spots.  However, when used too much, it just makes the person sound like a cretin with a limited vocabulary and not alot of creativity.  If you want to be taken seriously (in life, not just the forum), learn to use it in moderation, and learn some cool adjective/adverbs/nouns to commumicate your ideas.

It's because the timing window is so small on RB, you have to hit the fret button almost perfectly as it crosses the strum line

Oh, i didn't know that. The only thing that bothers me is that it only happens with the GH:WT guitar and only on RB2.

Word choice is necessarily situation-dependent.

Around 14-16, I swore too much too, but I relaized that a). it didn't make me sound particularly intelligent or sophisticated, and b). it was a crutch.  As my vocabulary grew through HS, I found that I could express myself infinitely better with a weel chosen adverb than with a string of expletives.  Then again, I'm a nerd...

Well I'm not sure about that, I just know the timing window on RB is VERY small.  I've only used GHWT/GH3 guitars on RB.  Never bothered buying RB specific instruments.

It's the "cool" thing to do when you're 14.

I don't do it because I think it's cool, I do it because it has become part of my common vocabulary. Try going an hour without saying "it."
Saying "it" as in "it" or as in "curse words".

Because then you gave an example you can't really give. "It" is a necessary part of one's vocabulary. Curse words aren't.



It's like a need re-hab for swearing.
It's called puberty.

I'm not sure what consitutes a newb, but since I haven't been active on this forum for very long, here's a (re-)introduction:

I'm a happily married Swede who just can't seem to get enough of DT and other progressive bands. A few main influences:
DT, Spock's Beard/Neal Morse, Pain of Salvation, Opeth (yeah, no surprises so far, this is common ground), Ayreon, Porcupine Tree, Kino, Genesis (some of it), etc.

I'm a musician and a teacher, though at the moment I'm studying since jobs are hard to come by (and when they do come by, they're usually short term replacement positions).

I did hang around the old DT forum, but never enough :hat to get to know people.

Hey, guys. I just wanted y'all to know that I decided to join the Dream Theater forums. I'm happy to be here and I hope to be a regular member here. I'll go ahead and let y'all know a little bit about myself.

My name is Brandon, as you can probably quickly deduce. I'm fifteen years old (very soon to be sixteen) and I've been a Dream Theater fan for a little over a year. It all started with a conversation about metal with my friend, Jason. I started talking about how I wished that there was a band that fused my favorite music styles; id est, prog-rock, prog-metal, jazz fusion, and elements of classical symphony. He proceeded to ask me if I knew of the band 'Dream Theater.' I, at the time, hadn't heard of them, but I was very interested after I heard their song 'A Change of Seasons.' To say the least, I was more than impressed at their technical and artistic abilities.

I won't lie to you; James' voice takes some getting used to, but now it's hard to imagine the band without him. It takes a certain type of person to truly appreciate his talent, which I believe is safe to label 'brilliant.' Now, I'm not so narrow-minded when it comes to metal; other favorite bands of mine include Opeth, Megadeth, Queensrÿche, Symphony X, Nightwish, Yngwie Malmsteen, Rush, Pink Floyd, Soundgarden, Pantera, and Judas Priest, just to name the most influential. I'm currently looking into Porcupine Tree and All That Remains.

I'm truly the geek of all of my friends. My interests lie mainly around software development, computer engineering, graphic art, web development, classical literature, fantasy novels, linguistics, gaming, et cetera, et cetera.

I really hope to share my thoughts and ideas with everyone here.

Thanks.
-Brandon

To say the least, I was more than impressed at their technical and artistic abilities.

I won't lie to you; James' voice takes some getting used to, but now it's hard to imagine the band without him. It takes a certain type of person to truly appreciate his talent, which I believe is safe to label 'brilliant.' Now, I'm not so narrow-minded when it comes to metal; other favorite bands of mine include Pantera, Megadeth, Queensrÿche, Symphony X, Muse, All That Remains, Nightwish, Porcupine Tree, Yngwie Malmsteen, Rush, Yes, Pink Floyd, Soundgarden, and Judas Priest, just to name the most influential.

I'm truly the geek of all of my friends. My interests lie mainly around software development, computer engineering, graphic art, web development, classical literature, fantasy novels, linguistics, gaming, et cetera, et cetera.

I really hope to share my thoughts and ideas with everyone here.

Thanks.

Hey, guys. I just wanted y'all to know that I decided to join the Dream Theater forums. I'm happy to be here and I hope to be a regular member here. I'll go ahead and let y'all know a little bit about myself.

My name is Brandon, as you can probably quickly deduce. I'm fifteen years old (very soon to be sixteen) and I've been a Dream Theater fan for a little over a year. It all started with a conversation about metal with my friend, Jason. I started talking about how I wished that there was a band that fused my favorite music styles; id est, prog-rock, prog-metal, jazz fusion, and elements of classical symphony. He proceeded to ask me if I knew of the band 'Dream Theater.' I, at the time, hadn't heard of them, but I was very interested after I heard their song 'A Change of Seasons.' To say the least, I was more than impressed at their technical and artistic abilities.

I won't lie to you; James' voice takes some getting used to, but now it's hard to imagine the band without him.

Hey everyone, I'm Arran. This is the first time I've been to this forum, and I decided to join.

In terms of music, I listen mainly to progressive metal. I listen to Opeth, Between The Buried And Me, Porcupine Tree, and Dream Theater. These bands are also my main influences. I play guitar, and I play an Ibanez RG, although I would really like a Caparison Horus Scarab :) Lovely guitars.

Anyway, I hope to enjoy my time here, as none of my friends in the real world like Dream Theater or progressive metal in any form xD

Hi Everyone

My name is Julie and I am from Melbourne, Australia.
I am in my early 30's and have been a fan of Dream Theater for about five years or so now.
I joined the boards when I was trying to offload a ticket for the upcoming concert in Melbourne.

I am a huge Steve Vai fan as well as Joe Satriani. I can safely say there are a lot of Dream Theater fans on the Vai.com messageboards, this intrigued me enough to start my collection with Train of Thought and since then have been buying each album as it is released.
There is still a lot of their older albums that I do not have. :sad:
I purchased Lifting Shadows and plan on getting it signed at The Melbourne Meet and Greet, it is a great read for any fan, so I recommend everyone buys the updated editions.
I went to the Mebourne concert January 08 at Festival Hall. It was a great show, but most of all I remember it was so hot, it was a 30+ degree day, I barely saw Jordan or John Myung as being vertically challenged has its disadvantages.
So for the two upcoming Mebourne shows I am front row in the Lounge. (I can't wait!)
My favourite band is still Aerosmith, I am still waiting for them to tour OZ! Pink Floyd is a close second.

You've got a decent collection going already.  What do you mean disc 1 of BC&SL?  I mean, unless you're looking to get the limited edition material (which I don't think you can), you've got the whole album.

And which of these albums would you say you liked the most?  I know you probably love them all right now (:P), but try to pick a couple favorites and we'll try to point you in the right direction.

         Well I first registered Saturday but I have been on this whole week reading the threads and posting a couple of times. But the real reason why I joined was because I was staring my laptop most of the day not knowing what to go on until I decided to join a Forum and then why not joining a forum of my favorite band.
I'm happy that my father drilled in most of the music I listen to at a very young age I remember as a kid sitting in the car listening to Images and Words so that is where it all started. Ever since I have been with the band all these years but yet I have only gone to one concert the 20th Anniversary here in LA, I just graduated from HS so I guess I just need a job and wait till the earliest date for a concert comes in a ban wagon near me. I will admit I will post sometimes really weird posts as well coming from weird personally as well as never gone out of to the real world. hahah ahah

    I listen to (other than DT) to Joe Satriani, Pink Floyd, Rush, some Spyro Gyra, Scorpions, some Savatage, some Megadeth, Boston, some Al di Meola, some Eric Johnson, recently some solo Michael Harris solo stuff, a lot of the John Williams composer to a lot of movies, same with Howard shore from LOTR, and I enjoy listening to all of those video game soundtracks like Halo, Gears, Mass Effect, and what not (yes I like a lot of Sci Fi games) but I never really got into listening to really screaming bands I just cant stand it it makes me feel angry which im not. haahha so this is pretty much the first time I have joined a forum in general so im not too used to all of those lingo words that I have no idea what they mean so please bare with me, so well I'm pretty sure I will stay for a long time now don't have any plans leaving or what not so until next time. (or post)

All I mean by disc 1, is I haven't actually got to two or three. Not enough hours in the day!  :smiley:
Regarding faves at the moment I am listening to BC&SL a lot so that will be on top at the moment.
In the car is Systematic Chaos and Train of Thought. So I would say a mix of all three.  :smiley:
And remember I am female so this could change at anytime!  ;)

I still don't understand this.  There is only one disc for BC&SL, unless you have the limited edition.

And if you like the more metal stuff, the album to have is Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence.

My copy of BC&SL has three discs (in before the "including the John Myung yodeling solo at the end").  The first one is the album, the second is the cover songs, and the third is instrumental mixes.  But I just walked into Best Buy and picked it off the shelf.  It can't be that limited.

Ohai, I'm new obviously..... <.<

But yes, the name here is Raccoon, based on one of my favorite animals, although if you actually think that's a bit weird for a screen name, then Pyro could be useable as well, if not Alex for my first name.

My Dream Theater background actually originates thanks to Rock Band 2. I fell in love with Panic Attack, especially because of that insane bass intro by Myung. It inevitably got me to check out the album Octavarium, and upon listening to more of their stuff, I just got hooked. That took place in around March, so I was REALLY hyped when I found out that the band was going to release their tenth studio album, Black Clouds & Silver Linings. That ended up being my first CD by them, and I got the special edition with the 2 bonus CD's. My current favorite album by them is Octavarium, I simply loved all of the songs in that album, with Octavarium being my favorite song by the band, and The Count of Tuscany following close behind.

Other musical favorites would include Queens of the Stone Age, The Strokes, Interpol, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, Muse, Nine Inch Nails, System of a Down, 30 Seconds to Mars, Metallica sort of, and a bunch of other prog/metal/indie bands, like Symphony X and Franz Ferdinand. :U

Aside from that, I'm also an avid gamer and writer.... I basically write little stories for this other forum I go to (the link is in my profile incase anyone is interested >.>; ), and I own a Wii, a broken dead RROD possessed 360, plus a DS. My game library would include Smash Bros. Brawl, Pokemon Pearl/Revolution, Mario Strikers Charged, Halo 3, Rock Band 2, and a couple of other less interesting ones. Btw, I have online capability, so if anyone wants a match or something.... :P

That's basically it I guess... hope to make new friends and whatnot. :3

Hey, Alex. Welcome.

Unfortunately, I only have their tenth... I'm planning on getting Octavarium, Scenes from a Memory, Train of Thought, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, Systematic Chaos, and finally Images and Words in that order. I only managed to get BC&SL's because it was recently released, and that's the only album that I ever see in stock aside from their Greatest Hit compilation and Live at Budokan.... D<

And thanks for the welcome. :U

Hold on. I know this was a point of discussion, and I think now we may have an answer.

Did you ever hear the song "The Shattered Fortress" before you heard "The Glass Prison", "This Dying Soul", "The Root of All Evil", or "Repentance"? If so, what did you think of it?


Actually, the first of the 5 that I heard was "The Root of All Evil", with the second being "The Glass Prison" , seeing ow as soon as I heard that DT had a 42 minute epic, I sort of skipped from Octavarium to SDoIT xD;  Anyway, it was funny because when I later listened to "This Dying Soul", I thought that a certain verse sounded REALLY familiar, and upon doing some research, I found out about the 12 step suite.

Still, I loved how Portnoy combined all of the preceding four with The Shattered Fortress.... it's my second favorite. :D

This is the beauty of amazon.com and the internet.  Ordering back catalogs.  Assuming you aren't the credit-card possessing type, music stores like FYE will order anything they don't have in stock for you.

And welcome aboard.

Yeah, but the unfortunate problem with that is actually buying things online. My parents don't really feel safe when it comes to that because of one bad experience... xD;

Although I do feel as if I should try your second suggestion. I'll do that as soon as I can get the money for an album.... still, it'd be best to ask this now; would it be better to fill in the order asap, or when I'm able to buy the album(s)?

And thanks for the welcome. :3

Wrong thread but I hadn't listened to any other 12 step track before The Shattered Fortress. When I first listened to BC&SL, The Shattered Fortress was my 2nd favourite after The Best of Times. I liked the intro (especially keyboards), the intro solo (by the way, is that solo connected to This Dying Soul) and basically the first part of the song. I didn't like the latter part (aside from the JP solo and what I now know as the Root of All Evil reprise). Afterwards I listened to TROAE, TDS, Glass Prison and Repentance in THAT order. I can now understand why The Shattered Fortress is so good, it's good because the band took the best parts of the previous songs, changed them up, added a new intro and ending.

I was going to watch the first episode, but it was boring as hell and I got kicked out of the TV room by 20 girls who wanted to watch Gossip Girl.
Never get between girls and their fantasy life programing. It's a bad scene.

Hey, I'm Lunatic. I'm a beginning pianist, I've been playing for about a year, almost level 2. I've been with a teacher for about 5 months.
I like tinkering with things, such as computers (both software and hardware), audio equipment, electronics in general.
My favorite band, I could say it's Dream Theater. I like progressive metal, metal in general (except for nu metal and metalcore, I don't really listen to black metal or death metal, except for Opeth), progressive rock, classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, etc), Jazz and even classical music.
The reason I chose Lunatic as an username is because I feel.. good, at night.

Hello all, I just got my account here. My father's lead guitarist got me into Dream Theater and most of the progressive rock and metal bands that I listen to today. Before that, I was into alot of heavy metal, and I still am but Progressive music is my fav now. My favorite bands are  :hefdaddy Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Redemption, Becoming The Archetype, LTE, and many others.

Hey I'm new here. I did have an account on the 'old' DT forum so decided it was time to make a new one here, I am a regular over at the JP forum usually in the Gear Section, known as panicattack. I've been playing guitar for around 5/6 years now. I have always been a huge fan of DT and anything related as well as bands like Led Zep, Iron Maiden etc. I am currently getting pwned by 'The Human Equation' by Ayreon, and will be exploring more of Arjen's stuff soon. Other music I like includes some Jazz stuff and some classical.

Apart from music I am very much into technology, exploring recording and other audio equipment as well as computer programming, graphics, web design and gaming.

Hi. I'm the loser that made Scrub move to Tulsa. He introduced me to DT when we started dating a couple years ago (and he basically listens to DT nonstop). I still consider myself a new fan, though. Besides prog rock, I'm also a fan of alt-rock, dadrock, electro house, and post-rock.

Btw hi Guitarded, who I still haven't met yet.

Welcome.
Don't incur the wrath of anyone until 1000 posts, and you'll be fine.
Don't be like me.

Salutations to all here.

My name is Paul and for my manyfold sins in a past life I live in England, and not somewhere far warmer.

I am of advanced years but can still make it to the toilet in time, which is something of a comfort.

Bands/Artists liked:

Led Zeppelin
Frank Zappa
Planet X
Be Bop Deluxe
Wishbone Ash
Ozric Tentacles
Porcupine Tree
Freak Kitchen
Deep Purple (But only with Blackmore)
Can

Authors admired:

William Burroughs
Martin Amis
Michael Moorcock
Oscar Wilde
David Britton

Comedians laughed at:

The late Bill Hicks
Bill Bailey
Bob Hope
Groucho Marx
Karl Marx
Monty Python

I am employed on the railways and in my spare time enjoy reclining on my sofa drinking single malt whisky, staring at female bottoms and wondering if there's life after work.

I think that'll do for now.

I am a Guest Service manager at the local Target but am working on my certification to teach English/Language Arts at the Secondary level.  Though I have been reading in this forum as a guest since summer 09, I finally decided to join.  I think what ultimately drove me to it was my frustration with DT groups on Facebook and how poor the discussion usually is in them.  I believe, based on what I've observed so far, that this will be a far more interesting place.  To reveal more about myself, some favorites include:

Music

Rush
Galactic Cowboys
Theocracy
Brave Saint Saturn
Billy Joel
Tourniquet
Believer
Megadeth
Weird Al Yankovic

Authors

T.S. Eliot
Joseph Conrad
N.T. Wright
Paul the Apostle
Flannery O'Connor

Old Television Shows

Tourniquet

I know.  I don't see their name much around here, though, which is a little surprising.  Their brand of progressive/thrash/metal would seemingly appeal to many on these boards.   And any fan of drumming simply MUST hear Kirkpatrick.  Maybe they'll eventually release a new album; it's been awhile since 2003.

Tourniquet.  The thrash part varies a bit based on time period, but prog/metal/thrash is their self-designation on their myspace music page (https://www.myspace.com/tourniquetrocks - check out Viento Borrascoso).  Ted Kirkpatrick, the drummer, is AMAZING!!!  Plus, he also writes 90% of ALL their music, guitar and everything.

Touniquet is fun live! And I have a cassette with them somewhere in the basement.

I saw them once back around 2000 in this little Christian club in Jacksonville, FL called the Murray Hill Theater.  They were great.  Also, if you have them in your basement, could you release them long enough to at least record a new album?  Please?  It's been too long!

Hello everyone, I joined DTF about a week ago and thought it was about time I introduced myself! To put it briefly: I’m seventeen years old, living in the UK, in my last year of school and going to be studying medicine next year. I first listened to Dream Theater when I was about eleven and my brother told me to listen to Six Degrees. I absolutely loved it but it’s only fairly recently that I’ve really begun to appreciate their music. Now I’m trying to expand my musical taste a bit; I’m already a fan of Ayreon, Symphony X and Pain of Salvation (although I’ve only listened to BE and The Perfect Element) and I’ve just started listening to Porcupine Tree (only heard a few songs but I’m already blown away by them). Unfortunately none of my friends share my taste in music and seem to get tired of all my DT ramblings, so I guess this is the place for me   :D

There's another guy from Aberdeen on here but he lives in Edinburgh right now. He comes home during the uni holidays though.

Yeah. I planned to go to Heriot Watt originally but I fucked up my exams by doing no work and ended up in RGU :lol.

I like the uni though. The one year work placement (which I'm on right now) is awesome.

Haha I'm still waiting to hear from Edinburgh, I've been accepted for Aberdeen but I'm kind of keen to move...

My brother's just like you, he's at RGU now as well doing computing. He seems to like it there, works part time with the company that he did his work placement with.

Salve.

My name is Brandon, a 16-year-old computer enthusiast from the U.S. My interests include reading fantasy and sci-fi novels, listening to music (namely progressive metal), C/Asm software development in an x86/64 Linux environment, graphic design (including pixel art), and Olivia Munn.

Dream Theater is a religion to me. I think that sums up everything; no need to dwell on it, since anyone reading right now should know why. I've actually not been to any concerts, but going on a tour-stalking roadtrip is on my Life To-do List. I appreciate DT's musicianship, not just the music itself; the way they write and record music...it's intoxicating, to say the least.

I do, however, own the entire discography. It's absolutely amazing. The only songs I've yet to listen to are the covers from ACoS and one or two live albums. Anyway, I suppose I can express my musical taste with a quick top-10 list of my favorite DT songs.


It's definitely not set in stone. It's pretty situational, as well. I might be missing one, and I'm not so sure about the ranking either. There's only one thing that's certain and without a doubt: A Change of Seasons. It's the first DT song I ever heard. It's the one that I fell in love with, and to this day, it remains as my favorite song in existence. Period.

Thanks for having me!
-Brandon

Might as well introduce myself again since it's been a long time that I've been an active part at this place.

My name's Laurent and I live in Luxembourg, which is a (minuscule) country surrounded by Germany, France and Belgium. I've been a fan of Dream Theater since I started my 3d year at highschool, which was approximately 7 years ago. I am 24 years old now, studying IT and Business Management at the University in my third years (last year of my Bachelor program), and really looking forward into making some moneyh.

I am into web development and design, love helping out people with their issues or projects, am getting more into social networking (twitter particularly and facebook only a tiny little bit) and love going to the gym!

Any Q's, don't hesitate :)

Laurent

Hello DTF.

I am a new member, but I have been reading the forum for quite a long time and finally decided to get in on the fun.

I am 18 years old and have been listening to Dream Theater since the release of Octavarium. I have been hopelessly addicted ever since. Other bands I listen to are Alter Bridge, Alice In Chains, Meshuggah, Rush, Soilwork and Stone Temple Pilots.

My main interests are hockey, golf, music, reading and writing.

Hi, I've been a frequent lurker for a long time, finally decided to join up. My name is Kevin, I'm 28, and I live in Southeastern Massachusetts. Dream Theater is my favorite band. I listen primarily to heavy metal seeing as I was pretty muched raised on it. Big sports fan, all Boston area related teams. I used to play guitar, but not as much as of late. Well, that's all I can think of right now and I'm getting hungry. Time for breakfast.

What's happenin'?  First post on here.  Love Dream Theater obviously, got there by way of Metallica, Megadeth, Symphony X, Testament.  I'm 27 years old from Florida, watch a lot of sports (Orlando Magic basketball, Gators football/basketball, Falcons football).  I already feel at home with Airplane references and an Alestorm fan within the past few posts.  From the avatar of course you can gather my favorite show is Arrested Development.  Love to meet new people too, so please don't hesitate to send me a message.

I've been lurking in the forums for a while so I may as well say hi.
First got into DT a couple years ago, before that was a fan of pretty much any thing hard rock/metal. Came in through Rock Band I guess, just was amazed by the badassishness of Panic Attack. I am now convinced that the only way that anyone could write Octavarium is if they were the fucking Jewish messiah. That is what Dream Theater is to me now. Other favorite songs are The Glass Prison (arpeggios have never been more intense), ItNoG, TCoT, and pretty much every one of their songs that are over 14 minutes long. Also into Coheed, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Rush, and Zeppelin.
I'm finding new songs by DT every day and am freaking out that they're quickly becoming one of the only bands I listen to any more.
I'm a Jewish daywalker from southern Vermont. Wassap//?

EDIT: This un's a young un; got into their generic songs at 14, and since then have been shifting from CM and As I Am to Change of Seasons and, um, possibly Learning to Live (trying to get into it but having a bit of trouble. Everyone on this forum seems to rave about I&W and LtL, but I just can't interest myself in that spacey synth style Rudess was using in their earlier albums.)

Hey what's up, I'm Hoppipolla. I'm from the Seattle area although I frequently travel the left coast. I've been a DT fan since right before Train of Thought came out. My uncle, who passed away in 1996, was a huge dream theater fan also and unfortunately I was not old enough to enjoy them with him back then (I'm 24 now, he passed when I was 10).

I recently got to see them live for the first time at their one-off headlining show in Portland, which was amazing.

If I had to pick 2 favorite albums they would be Metropolis & Octavarium. I can't quite pick a favorite song yet, I've been working on that for awhile...

Sorry I haven't had time to photoshop myself a signature and find a good avatar yet, they will come in time.

Post by: Hoppipolla on June 24, 2010, 03:46:05 PM
I'll try to rundown some of my feelings about some songs and albums so you know a little more about my DT tastes..

1. I've listened to Octavarium (song) and A Change of Seasons more then any other DT songs. I would say that the live version of Octavarium is my favorite DT song of all time simply because JR's continuum work always amazes me. So Octavarium is my favorite epic

2. The Glass Prison is my favorite song in the AA-suite. Everything about it is amazing from start to finish. MP's drumming had never been so predominate up to that point.

3. Another Day is a song that I have dedicated to my Uncle and sometimes get too wrapped up into the song. The alternate take in GH+21 is almost better then the original.

4. I'm not much of a fan of WDDU because it simply doesn't feel like DT without Labrie. I really like "Afterlife" though and I love when they perform WDDU stuff live.

5. Space Dye Vest is my favorite song off of Awake

6. GLass Prison >> Repetence >> Root of all evil >> Shattered Fortress >> This Dying Soul

7.  Stream of Consciousness is my favorite song on Train of Thought. I'm not as big of a fan of "In The Name of God" as most people

8. The first album I listened to from start to finish was "Falling into Infinity" because one of my family members owned it. The first DT songs I ever listened to was "Glass Prison" & "Ytse Jam"

9. I always knew that Metropolis Pt 2 was a concept album but never once read online the entire story. I finally figured it all out a few months ago.

10. I am active within the DT bootleg community and love listening to live stuff almost as much as studio stuff.

Yes yes, sorry, I was trying to type too fast apparently before going to work.

SDV is beautiful, especially the lyrics. Plus, I'm a big fan of how DT uses samples throughout their music, so this song definitely does it for me.

Hey guys, I'm not really into metal at all much anymore but this seems like a really cool forum with a lot of good people, which is hard to come by.  I listen to a lot of classical and soundtrack.  I listen to I listen to a lot of ambient music and folk music.  Also ambient folk music.  I guess, to give a few names..... Pain of Salvation, Nick Drake, Gavin Castleton, Philip Glass, Yann Tiersen, The Dear Hunter, Damien Rice, Sufjan Stevens, Queen, The Beatles, Ulver, Alcest, Kevin Gilbert, John Adams (composer) Demians, Marillion, Tom Waits, Toy Matinee, Tori Amos, Chroma Key, Will Knox, John Williams, Jeremy Soule, Dare, Clint Mansell, Manes, Bang on a Can, Max Richter, The River Empires, and Kevin Gilbert.

I guess the most interesting thing I can say about myself is that I am a soundtrack composer.  I actually get paid to compose for local stuff (amateur video games and college presentations and what-not) and hopefully I will make it big on this.  I have also started producing for local hip hop acts.  I do make lots of other music simply for my enjoyment and put most of it here https://www.last.fm/music/Tremor+Control .  I am a mostly self-taught pianist, guitarist, cellist, drummer, thereminist and producer.  I guess you could say I am REALLY involved in music for my age of 15.

Hey all,

I'm new, so I thought I'd introduce myself.  ;) My name is Josh, I'm 27, and I've been a Dream Theater fan since I was 17; I got into them through other prog rock bands, ordered Images and Words from ebay, and loved it so much that I ended up getting the rest of them. Now I own all of the albums.

I just saw Dream Theater open for Iron Maiden, too, just three days ago. What an amazing experience...it wasn't only just my first time seeing Iron Maiden, it was my first time seeing Dream Theater, too! They both rocked (I'm a huge Maiden fan as well, so this was like a dream come true), although I wish DT had played for longer. I really need to see them on a headliner tour next time they come around Ohio.

My favorite Dream Theater album...hmm. That would probably be either I&W, Awake, Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence, Systematic Chaos, or Scenes From A Memory. I also love the new album as well.

Other favorite artists/bands...Yes, Rush, The Beatles, King Crimson, Spock's Beard, Transatlantic, Gentle Giant, Camel, Nektar, Gong, Black Sabbath, U2, Depeche Mode, REM, Genesis, etc. I love prog rock in general.

Anyway, good to be here!

Josh

Hiya folks, another n00b in the house! My name is Rob, and I'm from Cornwall, which is the ass-end of the poxy little bunch of islands across the pond that is ironically named 'Great' Britain.  I've been into DT since '95 when I bought Awake on a whim from a secondhand store (yeah I know, some pillock sold it... or maybe nicked it, never listened to it,  then sold it....) when I was in town with a mate of mine. Got it back stuck the kettle on and gave the cd a spin.  Never did get the cup of tea... we're like Holy Crap!.. play it again. The rest is history.  I don't normally do fan sites, but I heard the news about Mike last week (slow, huh?) and needed to know what the hell was going on, so I googled, lurked for a while then found that a lot of you guys and gals think much the way I do, so here I am!  A pleasure to be here, and I hope to stick around and shoot the breeze some.

The beers are on me!  ;D

I listen mostly to progressive rock and progressive metal, but also a lot of other stuff like classic rock, death metal and some electronica (my "everything-playlist" in spotify: https://open.spotify.com/user/kartmaze/playlist/6hXgFl93xRr68duf7MKm0K). Dream Theater has been my favourite band for 5 years or so.
I've played guitar for 7 years and I play guitar in a band back in Norway (MySpace-link in my sig), where I do most of the composing and lyrics-writing. And I'm a 2006 Norwegian gokart champion.

Hey gaiz! I've been visiting this site for like the last month, every day, hoping for updates on the status with DTs drummer haha, so I decided I may as well make an account. I live in Australia, Melbourne, currently studying n working part time (sigh!). I pretty much have grown up playing (or at least attempting to) play guitar along with Dream Theater. Although I'm not the DT fan I used to be, I still enjoy keeping up with the goss, latest material and, from time to time, going back and listening to some classic DT. I am heavily into Animals as Leaders, trying to learn a bunch of their tunes on guitar, but really enjoy listening to other extreme/technical/post metal bands such as Periphery, Isis, Pelican, Maudlin (leaving/bath!), Ulver, Godspeed you!... etc. Hope to see y'all around :D

In other words, classic spring-summer-fall Trondheim weather, then. In the winther, of course, there's just a lot of snow...  :P I'm probably going to get a 'cold shock' when I get back... But it's the best place to be, nonetheless!  :biggrin:

Good Evening fellow DT fans.  My names Jon, I'm 19 and have been into DT since Scenes came out through my dad who also is a big DT fan.  Yes I was only 8!! Still my favourite band to this date.  Led Zeppelin are also another one of my favs and have the 4 symbols tattood on my arm. I'm a big prog, metal and rock fan.  I live in the UK and am currently training to be a railway maintenance engineer. So HI!!!!!! By the way I despise that guitar I'm playing (it's not mine) hence the funny face.

Aye, everyone. Been a Dream Theater fan for a good while, and I'm also a huge fan of several other progressive metal bands, not to mention some hard rock and metal bands, so I thought perhaps I'd fit in here. I'm also a member of the Alter Bridge forums since they're good and active, and I've administrated several forums myself. I'm an avid artist and such, too, as well as a musician and a soccer player!

I hope I'll find some interest and stick around, everything looks really nice around here! :)

Hi everyone. My name is Anders and I'm from Norway. I've been listening to DT since ToT was released (It was In The Name of God that got me into DT and the "world" of progressive music). And I have been lucky enough to have seen DT live on the last three consecutive tours, each time when they played in Norway. And I'm also member of DTNorway. :smiley:

Apart from DT I'm also listening to Rush, Symphony X, Porcupine Tree, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbbath, Pink Floyd, Kamelot, Steve Vai, Ayreon and various other prog rock groups and other heavy metal bands.
I'm also very into reading books (history, fiction, thriller, horror and humor), Monty Python, Mythbusters, The Simpsons, watcing movies, playing video games, sudoku, Formula 1, cars, computers and miltary aviation.

I hope I'll experience many fun and exciting stuff in the time to come.

Cheers, and prog ROCK ON!  :laugh: :metal

I should probably have posted this like a week ago when I joined. Needles to say I just realized this post exists.
My real name is Diego but I go by Nekov, I'm 24, live in Argentina and as far as my musical taste I'm mainly into prog and metal. I do like some other bands outside of those genres but it is not often I find one that interests me.
I also love reading, specially Sci-fi.

im 18 years from minnesota. I love dream theater, easily my favorite band. dream theater really changed my life. I used to only listen to christian music. im not saying theres anything wrong with christian music but its once i heard dream theater, i realized how incredibly boring it can be. once my cousin showed me dream theater about 2 years i immediately got in to bands like chevelle, the mars volta, muse, audioslave, and red hot chili peppers. Since then i have expanded my musical likings sooo far, for instance two of my favorite bands right now are protest the hero and between the buried and me, 2 bands that i never thought i would listen to seriously in my entire life. Even though i have only known of dream theater for 2 years, i have all of their cds and all dvds and i know pretty much everything there is to know about dream theater, so you could say im a pretty committed fan. I am soo greatful to have discovered dream theater because they completely changed my view on music.

k now that thats over, I am currently going to a community college working on generals and next year i plan on transferring to a 4 year college to major in music business to become an A&R coordinator.

just a list of other bands i love:alter bridge, andromeda, blackfield, circus maximus, an endless sporadic, filter, gordian knot, incubus, korn, linkin park, LTE, opeth, passion pit, porcupine tree, rush, spocks beard, system of a down, tool, 311.
         

I look forward to no longer having a life after discovering this website :)

Hi,I'm Japanese active as recording or support bassist.
And a big fun of DT.
I've practiced many DT's songs,and improve my skill.

I posted several videos on youtube.
https://www.youtube.com/user/nhbass1
There's no DT's songs, because of the copyright...
But I hope you enjoy :)

Hi everyone; I've been lurking here for the better part of the last couple months and finally decided to register. My name's Pete, and I'm from just outside Toronto. I'm 23 (turning 24 in like a week) and I've been a fan of Dream Theater for probably about 6 or 7 years. I'm not exactly new to the forum game - I moderated the biggest non-official Metallica forum on the net for a couple of years, so I hopefully shouldn't come off as too 'noobish'.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to contributing to some discussions here and, most likely, being turned on to a bunch of cool music and whathaveyou.

Holy crap my computer science class was full of fail today.  It filled my fail quota for weeks.  Apparently the perimeter/area of a rectangle is one of the hardest concepts to grasp now in days.

I know how to calculate area and perimeter of a rectangle, so I think I'll be fine.

Additionally: there seems to be a past member named SeventhSon, and I've been advised to change screennames. The only real reason I chose this one is because the one I usually go by, Polaris, was taken already. This was the best one I could come up with in the minute or so I took to consider a screenname.

Well maybe i should introduce myself then too. I'm new here but been a fan of Dream Theater since my band's guitarist (at the time) played me SDoIT (Disc 2) in the car (2002) as we were driving to the studio to record that band's debut EP (which co-incidentally was a concept album). I'm from Finland (28 y/o) and i'm a drummer, been playing the drums for about 18 years now. I don't consider myself a Dream Theater fanatic but i do enjoy their music, mostly releases up until 'Train of Thought'; the newer ones are still a work in progress. I have currently two bands; ENDRIVE (some kind of metalcore-ish -> www.myspace.com/endrive) and a new band CASSIE (postpop/postrock; whatever you wanna call it). So here i am! Ooh forgot to mention, i use and endorse Dream Cymbals (www.dreamcymbals.com)

peace love and understanding,
- torspo

i just popped my DTF cherry (oi, what an odd image) in the Devin Townsend thread, so i should probably make the "official introduction post" and say hi.

i've been into Dream Theater since SDOIT came out, and have followed the band on and off since then; somewhere in between SC and BCSL, i became truly obsessed (not sure why the timing, but it's when Octavarium fully clicked for me, so that sparked a whole new dive into the band's music). i'd rank SDOIT and SFAM at the top of my favourites, i guess, with Octavarium and I&W close behind.

my other obsessions are Dev, Ulver, Porcupine Tree, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Meshuggah, Moonspell, and Tool, among many others.

Hey everyone!

I just found this site recently (I signed up feb. 9) and started posting/viewing threads during the past week or so..
And I gotta say, I love this site  :metal

Seems like you're all mostly familiar with each other, which I think is pretty awesome  ;D

So I felt the need to introduce myself a little.
The name's Aramatheis (obviously), I am Canadian, and I'm a pretty big Dream Theater fan (also fairly obvious). I like pretty much everything DT has ever done, apart from a few select songs (off of FII). I'm also a big fan of Flyleaf, Finger Eleven, Journey, System of a Down, All That Remains, Amon Amarth, Demon Hunter, The Eagles, Trivium, August Burns Red, Shadows Fall, Slipknot, Paramore, Rhapsody of Fire, Styx, Queen and a bunch of others  :)

I wish I could say that I'm an aspiring musician.. but sadly I don't play an instrument. :'(
I am, however, a big fan of the drums, and really wish I could learn to play them.
So while I like to think that I'm a huge Dream Theater fan, I hardly know anything about the technical/musical aspect of their music.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to being a member of this wonderful site!

one of my friend introduced me to Dream Theater while i was in high school (around 2008) but when Black Clouds and Silver Linings came out i was amazed how these awesome musicians can write awesome music:)... and since that album i've been fan of them  :metal  and it's also my favorite album by them

01. Rhapsody of Fire
02. EPICA

06. Haggard
07. Metallica
08. Megadeth
09. Rush

13. Cannibal Corpse
14. Pink Floyd

i also listen to some Indie, Hip-Hop (french rap), Progressive Rock, some french musicians of where i'm from (Quebec)...

:)

the only thing that i hate in metal is that "metalcore" (don't judge me or anything).. i don't know why i hate that sort of music

My name is Konrad (or Conrad, more American  :D ) and I'm from Poland. I work as a paramedic / nurse in Neurosurgery Clinic. I'm also a bass player since I was 15, so now it will be 13 years. Generally that's all about me ;) Funny thing is that I wrote almost 1100 posts, and never been introducing here ;) better later than never, stay heavy  :metal

Hello my name is Michael, GGG's Husband, and I’m 23 years old. GGG introduced me to DT back when we first started dating. I love the nice mix they have with their music.

My career started in High School where I started working at the Local TV station in News, WWCI TV10. After a few months I left with several months of News Producer credits under my belt. I then entered the Digital Media program at the local college IRSC, then called IRCC.

While there I worked for several companies, including the City of Port st. Lucie, edited the program’s promotional reel, and helped the instructors make many of the finals for my video classes.

After that I went to the Advanced Film Technology Program at Valencia Community College. While there I learned far too many things to list and worked on three feature films. Unfortunately I had to cut my time in that wonderful program short when the economy started to fall and I went back to work at the family company, LoPresti Aviation.

While there I was responsible for all video and photography for the company. Including working with legendary aerial stunt coordinator J.W. “Corkey” Fornof. Then in this down economy I decided to breakout and start my own business. I chose to make something new instead of looking for a new job that didn’t exist.

Now I am a Full time Engineer at a national television station TBN, I run my own Website/Print business called MnDMedia, I am a Partner at Ecclesia Productions, and i have a part time position with a local marketing firm.  I also volunteer at Framework Productions a local Christian ministry.  I stay pretty busy but I am always up for new and interesting projects.

Im looking forward to getting to know fellow DT fans. :)

Greetings DTF! 

Just realized I've never formally introduced myself to you folks.  Been lurking 'round these parts for a little over a year now after making a much-needed exodus from the MP.com boards. 

In case there are any old-timers or DT fanclub buddies from back in the day, I am a former Ytsejam mailing list addict (from the pre-forum days on the interwebs) & former member of the Houston, TX Area Ytsejammers (Houston Jammers) mailing list group that was pretty active in the 1999-2004 time period.

Still trying to 'figure out' the vibe around here, but have felt quite at home.

Entonces, iMucho Gusto, amigos!

In the words of Spicoli, "Let's party!"  :yarr

So, introductions, introductions...My name is Alice, I live in England, and I'm a friend of jonny108's or whatever the hell his username is on here >.< I'm sixteen, and currently bracing myself for my GCSE exams. In fact, I'm writing this on my revision break, just done a Chemistry paper. Grrr. Next year (at the end of compulsory education!) I'm studying English Language, English Literature, History and Theater in Sixth Form, and one day I hope to be an actress. I know, I know, I'm not going to make it, but a girl can dream can't she? I also really enjoy writing. This year I wrote a play inspired by SDOIT for a playwriting competition and I came in second place- One vote away from first! Umm, what else, what else...?

I'm abnormally short. Seriously. 16 year old girl's should not be struggling to reach 5'4". Mum is convinced that it's because I'm malnourished, I'm convinced that I am destined to be a hobbit. Not that I mind, hobbits are bad ass. Apart from Sam. Merry and Pippin though? Coolest. Hobbits. Evar.

Anyway, I've gone off on a tangent again. Blargh v.v I signed up here ages ago...It's just a matter of me not logging on. Ever. Whoopsie daisy.

Normalcy can be defined by what is most prominent in a population. In this case, you would be a "freak" within your own immediate area, but in terms of humanity, you would be "normal". It depends on what domain of the population you want to focus on, just as words like "big" and "small" depends on what your internal reference is.

Hello, everybody! My name is Frank. I registered this account two years ago but actually decided to start using it now! I don't have too much to say, really. I'm finishing my freshman year of college now and I'm probably going to end up being a linguistics major with a focus on cognitive science and neuroscience. I love languages, and I'm learning Japanese currently. I also love writing and video games and video production.

I am practically deaf, with very little hearing in one ear. I do enjoy, however, playing instruments like the cello, guitar, and piano. I also am aspiring to develop a singing technique. Given that I'm here, you could probably gauge that I love progressive music and particularly Dream Theater. ;)

Dream Theater are my favourite band and have been for over 2 years now. Thanks to this site I have expanded my musical tastes to that of Queesnryche, Chroma Key and Opeth, so thanks for that DTF.

Seems we already have somethings in common, I'm Matt, 17, studying Maths, Physics, Computer Science & Chemistry Engineering.  ;D

Normalcy can be defined by what is most prominent in a population. In this case, you would be a "freak" within your own immediate area, but in terms of humanity, you would be "normal". It depends on what domain of the population you want to focus on, just as words like "big" and "small" depends on what your internal reference is.

Hello, everybody! My name is Frank. I registered this account two years ago but actually decided to start using it now! I don't have too much to say, really. I'm finishing my freshman year of college now and I'm probably going to end up being a linguistics major with a focus on cognitive science and neuroscience. I love languages, and I'm learning Japanese currently. I also love writing and video games and video production.

I am practically deaf, with very little hearing in one ear. I do enjoy, however, playing instruments like the cello, guitar, and piano. I also am aspiring to develop a singing technique. Given that I'm here, you could probably gauge that I love progressive music and particularly Dream Theater. ;)

Welcome!  You seem to be an intelligent and well-spoken poster, so please don't fade into obscurity like the vast majority of people that post in the welcome thread.

Also, This.  :tup

Hey all, finally found a good prog forum and stuff :D
  I'm Revel and such... was introduced to Dream Theater a few months ago by a very good friend of mine and got hooked the first time I heard Octavarium..  Since said moment I've been collecting all kinds of music and such, a good amount of which I see threads about here and the rest I plan on posting and stuff :D
Sooooo.
I'll try to de-noob pretty quickly, but this forums a bit off from what I'm used to; no shoutbox.
Errr
I live in the mountains, a quiet, secluded ski town, smoke like a maniac, play instruments ( piano, accordion, drums and self-taught guitar )
What I'm looking to do here is touch up on my -very- little knowledge of prog history, bands, styles, and even some musical theory would be cool :D

So I just wanted to say hello to everybody ;)
My name is Ola, I'm 19 and I'm polish. I've been listening to Dream Theater for 6 years. In 2005 me and my brother got a 'Scenes from a NY' (from his friends who called it 'a dolorous music'!) and we both fell in love with DT  :heart SFaM is still my favourite album.
I've been to their concert only once in 2007, and I'm going to see them again in July.
Dream Theater is my #1 band, but I like Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Dave Matthews Band too. I'm also getting into Genesis, Rush and Yes - the bands which my father always recommended to me but I wasn't mature enough to fully understand their music (;
Anyway, since we all have something in common ; ) it will be a pleasure to post with you guys.

I only just noticed this thread, so I thought I should say hello in here.  ;D

My name's Ross, I'm from Perth in Scotland and I run a football (soccer) website with a friend for a living. I'll be 26 in a couple of weeks, but I've only been listening to Dream Theater since around 2005-2006 after a friend introduced me to Octavarium. I seem to be obsessed with the band though, I just can't stop listening to them! Easily my favourite band and nobody else really comes close.

Favourite DT albums:
1. Images and Words
2. Train of Thought
3. Octavarium

Favourite DT tracks:
1. Metropolis Part 1
2. Learning to Live
3. Octavarium
4. In the Name of God
5. Take the Time/In the Presence of Enemies/A Change of Seasons - can't decide what to give the 5th spot to!

Music is one of my favourite hobbies and I listen to quite a lot every day (mostly Dream Theater!) I'm quite heavily into prog-metal at the moment, but also enjoy lots of other different types of rock and metal, post-rock, grunge, thrash etc. Here's my Last.fm profile: https://www.last.fm/user/krands

Unfortunately my friends don't really share the same taste in music as me, but I've made a friend online in the last 3 years who likes a lot of the same bands as me. He also lives in Glasgow, which has allowed me to go and see a lot of bands live over the last 18months or so which is great. We went to Prog Nation 09 in Glasgow which was my first time seeing DT live  :metal (as well as Opeth, Bigelf and Unexpect). It was only a 90 minute show from DT unfortunately and I was hoping for a better setlist, but the performance was still great. Hopefully they come back to Glasgow in support of the new album and play a longer show. I NEED to see either Metropolis or Learning to Live live!  :D

Not sure why it took me so long to join the forum, since I love Dream Theater and I've been involved with the internet and forums since the late 90s (I'm a senior moderator on a Pro Evolution Soccer video game fansite, so you don't have to worry about me breaking any rules or anything  :lol)

Anyway, I'm rabbiting on for far too long now. Seems like a great forum, lots of friendly members and interesting chat going on   :tup

 Hello everybody in DTF land, I have been lurking on this forum for awhile and finally decided to sign up.
I have been a fan since 2004 and the album that set it off was Train of Thought. I have only seen them once :(
(the infamous concert at the Pagent with the guy trying to get the stick that Portnoy threw and then the guy fell off the balcony)
Other bands that are my favorite are Rush, Porcupine Tree, Queen, The Beatles, Iron Maiden, Tool, and Opeth.
Other activities I enjoy are reading, and watching dvd's.

I look forward to chatting about DT and other topics with you all.  :)

Old Blood, New Soul. 

Hey all.  I've missed this place.  Not sure what happened but I used to hang here years ago.  I think I probably joined 9 years ago-ish?  Then one day about 5 or 6 years ago the site was gone.  Couldn't locate it on DT's website.  Not sure what happened but I was sad it was gone.  So after many years on another board I figured I'd do a search to see if I could find a cool DT board again.  Ba Bam!!!  Once I started reading I noticed some of the names that I remembered.  HefDaddy, Bosk, Millahh and Rumborak.  Ha ha, even when I saw Rumborak's pic I thought "Oh yeah, the goat!".

Unfortunately, I have no clue what my old screen name was.  Don't have access to that e mail to see if I am still in the system.  I could have been deleted because of inactivity, who knows?  At any rate, I'm glad to find this site again and look forward to chatting it up about DT at such a pivotal time in their career.

Hi all!

After months of visiting this forum I decided to sign up.

Even though I've only been exposed to DT since 2008, I have collected all their albums, dvd's, etc. and as of last year my own Music Man BFR Petrucci guitar.

I've seen DT live twice and number three is coming up next month!

Musical interest: Death-/Black-/Prog-metal, Rock, Classical/Movie Scores, and all things Prog in general.

Anyways, excited to be here!

Tom

Hi guys!
I'm Matt, 24, from Italy.
I know Dream Theater since 1998, and they pushed me to play the guitar.

I'm sorry because I introduced myself in the OtBoA's thread, I hope that the moderators will excuse me!

BTW, I've known this forum for a long time, and I decided tu register just few days ago.
I hope to enjoy my time here with you, and I hope to share opinions and ideas with you all!
I really hope to find some new amazing friends!

Oh, last but not least, sorry for my English, it's not so good!

Wow, how did this thread elude my eyes? I looked around for it when I first joined, but couldn't find it for some reason.

So anyway, in spite of posting for like a day straight...

Hi, my name is Eric.
I live in Ontario, Canada. Though originally I'm from Russia.

Umm... Dream Theater have been on my radar for many, many years, but it's only within the last 4 or so that I pretty much started really paying attention and caught up with their entire library, history.
I'm usually the kind of guy who, in any medium, or subgenre of a medium, (music, for example), I'll latch onto one particular artist and pretty much live and breathe it. That would be DT in this case, even though I do listen to and love lots of other bands. Maiden, Fear Factory, Megadeth, Queen, Epica, and even non-rock stuff like Michael Jackson, Johnny Cash and recently to a lesser extent, some rap, I still hold DT above all else. So yeah, big fan of DT.

Studying to be an actor... Umm... I also sing, my dad was a singer, so I kinda inherited that. And I teach Art class, mostly to little kids, as a way to make money right now.

So yeah, I'm definitely liking these boards. It's a lot less packed than I thought it would be, and seems to have enough regulars to build an actual community, so I'll gladly become a part of it.


Also, Welcome, Matt!

I have been a lurker on here for a while and decided to join up 3 days ago.
I first got into DT in 2008 when i played Panic Attack on Rock Band 2. (I know it's lame)  They pretty much opened up the world of prog to me, and now it has become my favorite genre of music.  I am the only one out of all the people i know who likes DT and prog music in general. 
Also MP was my inspiration to pick up the drums which have now turned into my main passion in my life.

Hi, I'm Marc.  Joined DTF April 2011 and lurked since October (I wonder why?), but I just neglected to post here in newb world.  I live in US-Florida.

Have been a DT fan since 2003....bummed that I hadn't heard of them before that (was busy starting a family instead of exploring new music).  A buddy gave me Awake (he decided he didn't like prog anything, but knew I would like it).  After listening, immediately looked for tour news and found out they had been in town just a week before  :( .  

Musical Tastes: I really like all types of music, but I seem to gravitate towards prog rock, prog metal, metal, jazz fusion and classical.
Fav. Bands: DT, Rush, Maiden, Yes,...and then Genesis, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Phish, Queen, Queensryche, Journey, Spyro Gyra, Steely Dan...and ZZ Top.

Hobbies: Drums & Perc., Basketball, Roller Coasters, Movies, Gaming, Fantasy Sports, watching Hockey, American Football and Baseball.

Hi my name is Chris, I'm 18, I've been logged in for a total of 1 day and 6 minutes, I'm from Middle Earth Midlands in England.

I'm also a vocalist in my own Progressive Metal band 'Eyes Of Existence', who are heavily influenced by Dream Theater believe it or not, they're my favourite band alongside Coheed and Cambria (although I prefer DT, C&C I've grew up with).

Been a fan of DT since around 2005 when I discovered Octavarium, but my favourite album is SFAM which I bought shortly after. Favourite DT song? There's more than a few there. Maybe The Great Debate or Metropolis Pt. 1 or something like that.

Nice to be part of such a great site, hope I fit in. :D

Hey.  My real name is Alex, but you can call me Var.  I don't really care; whatever works.

I honestly am not the type that listens to metal, but after being showed to Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence and Octavarium, I've really appreciated Dream Theater as a band.  I normally listen to music for its notes and not for its words, but I was amazed to see that some of DT's songs have blown both parts away.  The amount of effort that they put into their songs really is amazing.

You'll often see me use selectively British spellings for things, but don't be fooled; I am American.  I'm also the kind of person that works with computers often.  I'm not the kind of person that you'd expect on a forum about a metal band, but I'm sure that I'll still fit in. :P

Anyway, I don't know how active that I'll be, but I'll probably stick around.

You may think these two facts are just coincidences, perhaps a small joke played on this forum by the Illuminati while they plotted their continued monarchy over the world from the cyborg Nazi base on the moon (which Michael Bay tried to warn us about in the newest Transformers movie, but he failed and everyone thought the movie was just about a bunch of scrap metal robots pounding each other (no sexual innuendo intended)), but this would be wrong.

The real reason is that exploding cars (even faked exploding cars) and sunglasses are both fucking cool. What does this have to do with myself or Dream Theater, you ask? Well, Dream Theater is also fucking cool. Likewise, I am also fucking cool right now because it's summer, and the AC is on. Does Dream Theater record songs with maximum AC on to make them sound so cool? Someone should ask them that in an interview or something.

Anyway, my real name is Sri and I got invited here by a friend (Heretic). He was the guy who introduced me to DT (and a bunch of other bands as well, including Fair to Midland and Avenged Sevenfold, which also own as well). 5 favorite DT songs in no particular order: Learning to Live, Octavarium, Never Enough, Another Day, The Spirit Carries On. Still haven't listened to their entire library yet so don't expect that list to not change or anything.

Don't play any instruments or anything, though occasionally I dick around with MIDIs and software synths (lol). I do play a lot of videogames, though! They're probably some of the funnest things to play around!

So yeah. I'll be sticking around here, and hopefully fitting in and enjoying some fun times on this forum. :D

We're very happy to have a new convert.  If you enjoy non-DT prog metal, 70s rock, or post-1990 alt-rock, you'll fit right in here.  (Also, synthesizers are fucking awesome.  Almost as awesome as drums.)

Anyways, make yourself at home, and if you don't have a girlfriend, feel free to bitch about it at the Lonely Hearts' Club. 

Thank you for joining!   :biggrin:

It's a lot like not looking into the camera when you take a picture of yourself. It's like, sure, you can look directly into it, but what's the point?


Looking at explosions should be a ban-worthy offense.

It already is, right next to having a girlfriend, going out with friends, and being active on the forum for less than 12 hours a day.

Oh hey, I guess I never introduced myself.  A friend pointed this way and I'm really liking it here.  Listen to a lot of music, Metal being my primary, but I'm pretty much open to any genre as long as I find what I'm hearing good.  I've got a soft spot for Lady Gaga, so thats testament enough..  Anywho, looking forward to being here!

Hey all,

I am a rather long time lurker and poster at MPforum, and long time lurker rare time poster at JPforum.

Since the split with MP, I have been wandering around here more. And since Kyo's interview with JLB, and the crap storm that has been swirling around MP since, I decided enough is a enough with his forum. Granted, I already kind of sided with DT more, but the childish veiled insults from MP recently was the tipping point. And really, the policing at that forum gets a little too silly. I recall the thread about the interview, and the poster was completely respectful. Yet the people there slung mud.

Any way, that said, this looks like a solid place, glad I could come on board!

Hello,

well, er... I'm pretty bad at talking about myself or worse, introducing myself so... just wanted to welcome everyone :) I've been listening to DT for 5 and half a year now (started with borrowing Octavarium and realising my life will never be the same anymore) and seen them live four times. Though there are several other bands I'm borderline obsessed with and I don't always listen mainly to DT, they've remained my favourite band for a lot of different reasons, and after a brief period of uncertainty after a certain event last autumn, I've no doubts it won't change after the last concert. ;)

The "other" aforementioned bands I love are Riverside, Katatonia (actually, my nickname is inspired by one of their song titles), Porcupine Tree, Pain of Salvation, Opeth, Anathema, The Pineapple Thief, and also a lot of other bands I really like but won't list them now to avoid an uber-long post. I listen mostly to rock and metal (progressive being my favourite), but am fairly open-minded to other stuff as well.

What else... well, I'm a boring person so... I don't know... other than listening to music, I'm also kinda a gamer (for over a year now League of Legends reigns on my PC, but overall I'm mostly a strategy and FPS fan) and like reading, especially crime novels. The only TV series I regularily watch is a British "police procedural" (this sounds ominous but it's really interesting) called Waking the Dead. I've also wanted to play the guitar for like 5 years now but still haven't got myself to actually start doing it...

I think that's all I can say... :)

Hi.

I was introduced to this forum by a friend of mine.
I would like to join the community of DT fans because this band is a cornerstone in my musical taste history.
Without DT I'd listen same regular bands as most of metalheads do.
Having my taste reversed to progressive music opened my mind for vast seas of unique bands and
gave me the opportunity to discover avant-garde music and other innovative metal genres.

What is more, DT influenced on my musical skills. I'm a bassist, a novice drummer and pretty amateur composer.
If I hadn't known them, I wouldn't seek for things in music that I love now.
Actually, I look for the unexpected.
I like my music to surprise me everytime when listening to it, letting me to discover it layer after layer, deeper and deeper.
That's what DT does, that's what some other bands I listen do,
and I hope that there is twice as much bands who would affect me aswell If I knew them.
That's why I'm here - to share my musical taste and be influenced by you all.

That sounds serious, too serious, well... have I passed the rite of passage ? :D

New to here, of course. Got turned on to Dream Theater by a co-worker that copied the Octavarium cd for me. Bought about 6 other cd's of theirs a couple days later at a used cd shop here in Tampa. I have tickets to see them Oct 22 @ Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater Florida. Getting more excited by the day!!!  I have looked at the set list and sorry they aren't playing anything from Octavarium, especially Sacrificed Sons, which is one of my favorite tunes right now, being so close to 9-11, that song really resonates with me at this time. I am a fairly old dude that loves most music, but mostly classic rock. My last concert was classic rock live (Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon) at the Orlando Hard Rock. Before that was Roger Waters Wall tour last November 2010 at the St. Pete Times Forum (outstanding show). I like the little metal dude, have never seen that before  :metal. I have the new cd on pre-order, but have listened to it already on an internet streaming service and I love it. Will have to try and wait patiently? until next month.

I don't think I've done this here yet, so, since I think I'm changing this to my "home" forum on the internet I guess I should introduce myself.  So here goes.

My name is Barry.  I'm a pretty avid fan of Dream Theater, (love the new album!  :metal ) I am a 47 year old I.T. Department Director and web developer.  I am also a musician - I started playing music about 40 years ago when I was 7 years old.  My first instrument was the Clarinet.  I took music lessons all the way through high school, where I played in both the marching band and the orchestra, although by then I had switched to Tenor Sax.  When I was a teenager, I also took guitar lessons and since my father always had rock bands practicing in our basement, I learned to play drums by watching and then imitating the drummer in my father's band. 

These days I have a collaborative studio-project band called The ANABASIS (https://www.theanabasisproject.com) and it's one of the greatest joys of my life to have been able to have one of my favorite keyboardist, Ryo Okumoto of Spock's Beard join us.  Our debut album, entitled "Back From Being Gone" will drop in about 2 or 3 weeks.  We just signed a multi-record deal with a fairly well-known progressive rock label, although I can't mention it in any detail yet,  and I'm actually already working on the follow up album.   In a very limited release to friends and relatives, the reviews were very encouraging and our music was best described as "Transatlantic with balls."  I think a few people who post here have a copy of the album.
 
 I've been married for 11 years, I have a 23 year old son who is a Master at Arms in the US Navy and I have two dogs and an African Grey Parrot named Oscar. (https://www.oscarthebird.com)
 
 If you're into music gear, you can see my stuff on this web page. (https://www.theanabasisproject.com/AboutTheANABASIS/OurEquipment.aspx)
 
 My favorite bands are, in no particular order:
 
Dream Theater
 Opeth
 Spock's Beard
 Transatlantic
 Iron Maiden
 The Flower Kings
 
 I eat way too much pizza.
 
 And I would definitely walk barefoot over 10 miles of broken glass for a chance to be reincarnated as Charlize Theron's bicycle seat.

That just about does it.

When my band's album actually drops, I'll lightly spam the music section of the board in case anyone's interested in picking up a copy or listening to the live stream - the label we're on will be streaming the entire CD for people to preview before buying.

Hello everyone,

I am one of the, what I assume to now be many, Mike Portnoy Forum refugees. I was known as Panic Attack over there. I enjoy lots of music and play a bit of bass.

I've been a fan of DT since 2004 and seen them 6 times since then.

Well I guess I must have registered some time, but it must have been ages ago.
I guess with all the drama going on at the MP forum I thought I'd head back over here and say hi to you all and hope for more peaceful waters and a different perspective on things.

So hi (again) I'm Cyclopssss, 46 year old male from Rotterdam in the Netherlands.  I'm a singer in a classic rock cover band (60's/70's/80's/90's) and work as a medical typist at a hospital in my residence. I'm sad to say this is the first time in about 8 years time that I won't be seeing DT on tour.  :facepalm:

See you guys around!

Hi - I'm Glen - I live in Parramatta in Sydney, Australia and am still pretty much a DT noob obsessive. I've been listening to them since the start of 2010.  I realised that I was a big fan when it hurt that MP left, and also when I got up at 6.00 in the morning after a late show to watch the final part of "The Spirit Carries On".  I've been lurking here pretty much ever since.  I'm new to forums but this place seems welcoming so I hope to see you 'round ...

I'm Simon, an almost 25 year old Swede with a personality that leans towards geekness. I study engineering even though I'd rather pound heavy guitar riffs on a stage somewhere. I was 5 years old when my older cousin turned me on to Metallica's Kill 'em all album, and since then music with cool guitars has always spoken to me in a special way. I discovered Pink Floyd when I was 16, Rush when I was 17 and DT when I was 18, after hearing about the great drummer Mike Portnoy when talking to a friend about how awesome Neal Peart is. I read up a little about DT, and after hearing/reading MP describing themselves as "Pink Floyd, Metallica and Rush thrown in a blender and run at full speed", I instantly knew I'd love this band. The first time I heard about DT though was seeing JM in a catalog for Yamaha basses/guitars.

Happy flightings.

hello everyone! my name is davor. i'm a 25 year old croatian college student, music fan, occasional guitar player and a singer in a traditional croatian (dalmatian) a capella folk ensemble we call klapa. i've had 10 years of musical education, and play guitar since i was 8. at about that time i've discovered Pink Floyd, my greatest musical love. when i was 15, i was introduced to the work of Joe Satriani and it has forever changed my view of guitar and it's possibilities. a year later i went to discover John Petrucci (through G3) and shortly after that his band, Dream Theater  ;D. those would be three of my favorite bands and musicians, although i really like a lot of stuff- basically anything that for some reason catches my ear (the last being beyonce's ''best thing i never had''  :blush  )

the introduction is a bit long, sorry for that.   :azn:

Hi Guys!

My name is Arjen and I'm just new to the forums. I'll tell a couple of things that might be relevent to know about me ;)

I'm from the Netherlands and currently in college. The music I listen to is mostly rock and punk, though I'm pretty open minded when it comes to music. I've been playing keyboards and piano for about 10 years now, I'm currently in a band in which I play hammonds (YAY hammonds! :P) (obvious influances of deep purple, but also aspects of more modern rock like foo fighters). I also like to improvise on the piano and make up my own pieces.

I remember a guitarist from high school sending me a link of metropolis played live. I didn't even like it that much at first, but the music was interesting (it was especially the skill of the musicians that appealed to me). I think that being a musician myself is one of the main reasons why I like dream theater. I basically forced my self to listen to it and in the past years and I'm still liking it more and more. Dream theater is one of the few bands that a song gets better after 100 times of hearing it, you'll get used to the weird team signatures and appriciate all the amazing musical stuff they are playing. It's also weird in a way, because some songs you didn't like before can suddenly "click" after a couple of listens. I remember this happening to a change of seasons this summer, I used to switch to the next song at 1:28 minutes in the song, but I actually love the song now.

Anyway, I've become somewhat of a dream theater fan and  I've been reading the forums for about 2 months no, so I figured it's about time that I'd join as well!

ps. My favourite DT song is hell's kitchen, the last minute of the song is simply genius. I'm not a drummer at all, but every time I hear those brilliant time signatures it just forces me to drum along on the table ;)

Welcome to the new guys and girls!  ;D

Even though I've been member on this site and the old DTF-forumsite before the split I haven't properly introduced myself, until now that will say  ;)

Im a single guy, living in Karlstad, Sweden, in my own little flat. On the nights I work as a "paper-boy" (dunno if thats the right word, delivering morning newspapers anyway) and on the days I study, train, play games, watch movies and other stuff. I first heard of Dream Theater recommended by a friend sometime around 2003 (IIRC) and watched/listened to LSFNY, Budokan, and their new album of the time Train of Thought, since then I have been hooked and gone to everyone of their concerts when they've visited Sweden, 2005, 2007, 2009 and the next time 2012.

Ive played piano for some years, but quit some time ago and have mounted it down and now its in the cellar :). The sports I love to train is canoeing, swimming and cross-country-skiing, but I also love to work out in a gym, and use the row/canoe machine. And of course I love to have a beer, wine-drink or two sometimes, but it doesn't happen that often.

Well here I am, a Noob again.

Makes me feel young and fluffy, and strangely aroused.

But I digress.....I am new to DT Forums, and a pup when it comes to PROG/DT. Though I feel as though many already know 'of' me, thanks to Jay Octavarium and his ramblings. In general all things  :sadpanda: and borderline illegal are my business.

Musical tastes vary widely from Lordi to Floyd and Lifehouse. Bottom line, if it makes me tingle in the right places, I'll listen to it. I'm always up to have my mind blown with some good sh!t lyrically or acoustically or both (thus my <3 for DT).

Otherwise nothing too special about me, SoonToBeDivorced/25/WhiteFemale, with a passion for bacon, pandas, and penguins.

Well... Hello.

As I've written, I come from Finland, from a town called Joensuu. I am 16 years old. I have been a Dream Theater-fan since december 2009 by Pull Me Under. I own all of their studio albums except Systematic Chaos, which isn't good enough.

My musical taste is mostly rock/metal. My top 10:

1.Iron Maiden
2.Megadeth
3.Dream Theater
4.Eppu Normaali
5.Queensrÿche
6.Bruce Dickinson
7.Metallica
8.Sepultura
9.Anthrax
10.Juice Leskinen

I play drums quite well, guitar mediocrily and bass a bit. I'm also a pretty good singer. I play drums in Dayfall, which is thrash/speed metal band. Our homepage -> https://vcon.arkku.net/dayfall/index.php (There are no vocals yet. Warning! No prog here.).

I'm also a bit into sports. I like to watch ice hockey, football (soccer), biathlon, skiing and figure skating (ladies).

Hello, new here. Was a MP.com member from virtually the beginning (Softball35). Honestly just got fed up with what appears to be the BS over at MP.com, specifically Mike's lies/BS. From scanning the threads and posts, this board seems like a much better fit for me now.

My name is Andres. Is it weird to think I may have been waiting to join here for forever? Waiting for all of your eyes to hold my posts in comfort no creature has ever known. Even though I barely know any of you I am here. If you ever feel like this place is pulling you under then leave your body at my doormat and I'll take you far away. Our bodies can wait like forgotten shells on the shore of memories discarded on morning runs to infinity as we tour the astral plane. We'll search for all that is timeless rest in places that have never known company and TP God's throne. Am I crying? You're all so beautiful. Fill the tub of your hopes with my tears and dry yourself with the woven complex threads of my love for you. We are everything.

I think that's a very good thing to stand for as long as you extend the same respect towards men and those who claim no gender.

See, the forum's existed in many incarnations over the years, and if you have them, it means you were a member of one of the previous incarnations.

I think.

(I'm probably not the best authority on this, what with having no Lucky Charms.)

Green means you've financially donated to the forum.  Honestly, I'm not sure of the difference between the stars, blocks, or bars.  However, the quantity of them is described here.

I joined up back in September/October when DT was on the first U.S. leg.  I was excited about the new record and their return to Dallas and I posted/lurked a bit and then didn't come back for a while.  But I'll be sticking around I think.

I like to read, and I'm getting married in May, so there we go.

Hi everyone.  I joined up just before going to see DT here in Glasgow.  I am originally from Australia but I am living here in Glasgow at the moment since July.  I've got dual Aussie and Brit citizenship so that makes it easy for me.  So much easier travelling around Europe as well.  I've been into DT and their sort of music for quite a while now.  I am a huge fan of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

I used to play bass and guitar in a couple of bands back home but haven't played in quite a while.  And in reality, I am not that good anyway.  If John Petrucci is a Ferrari then I am a Datsun 120Y.

Anyway, I like this forum.  Might stick around for a while and get to know some of you.

Cheers

Hello!

I've been a DT fan for a few years now. I actually herd them back in 92 with Pull Me Under but I lost track of them..
But I am hooked now! Very fun band!
I'm a bit older (39 years and growing), but I am trying to keep up with the times with technology and the WWW.
Anyways, nice to meet you all. This forum seems very friendly and run well.
I have some strawberries calling my name!

Greetings!
I'm Notkrap from Parkton, NC  USA
42 yrs old, play guitar and love DT!
First listen was when my Warner Bros. rep sent me a promo of I&W in 92. Got to see them at "The Edge" in Ft. Lauderdale in 92. I was stupid not to use the back stage passes given to me by Atco. Oh well! Anyone in Fayetteville NC hit me up if you jam  around to any "prog" instrument wise, be it Rush, Ozzy, VH, DT, Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker, Saigon Kick, kings X etc
I thank you!

Hello Dream Theater Forums! As an official newcomer here (though I've lurked on and off for a good while lol), I feel it's only polite to come here and introduce myself. My name is Rebekah, I live in Portland, OR, and like most of you (I would assume haha) I am in mad passionate love with the music of Dream Theater (and I think the guys responsible for making that music are pretty cool too lol)! Really, I nerd out about them all the time, but haven't met anyone in Portland yet that shares my love of these guys, so I'm very excited to join this forum and stoke out my inner music geek with you all! I am pretty much a media junkie...movies, books, comics, music (making it and enjoying it). My tastes are pretty broad and eclectic...if you want to get specific feel free to ask! I am also a big fan of getting outdoors and general "nature time" shenanigans! If there's anything I forgot to cover that I should have just ask and I'll gladly answer, but for now I'll just wrap this up and say that I am excited to get to know you all! Much love :3

Funny story about that one, I'll type it out when I'm not on my phone.

It was given to me by bosk after I had posted pics of first Nem, then Jackie being toured around SF by yours truly.  Bosk decided to give me a special user group(DTForg member, EZBoardElder, Global Moderator, Admin, etc) of Tour Guide.  Thing is, when he set it up, he hit a wrong button or something, and for an hour, I had access to all Moderator and Admin boards.  After lurking around and finding all the secrets of DTF, I decided to let the mods know what was going on, and swiftly lost my access.

As to why you haven't been toured around here, maybe later I'll make a generic "lonestar's intro to DTF for noobs" thread, giving the noobs the inside poop on what to expect from certain areas and where to find shit, or should I let them learn on their own like I had to, suffering the requisite hazing in the process?

Okay, hey there. I've been on the board for a while, but I have only now come around to the General forum and I saw this thread, so I though what the fuck?

Anyway, I'm from Germany, which is probably pretty rare - I haven't met any Germans on this board so far, at least. I'm 17, in my second-to-last year of school. Musically, I enjoy Dream Theater (duh) and a few other prog bands, such as Transatlantic, Symphony X (though I wouldn't really consider them to be that much prog, especially the recent stuff), King Crimson and Genesis (Hackett-era). Other stuff that I enjoy is the more traditional metal like early Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, but also some power metal stuff like Blind Guardian and Helloween. Sometimes, I listen to old hard rock like Deep Purple or Rainbow, but that's rather rare.

Yup, that's about it.

See ya!

Hello, I've been a lurker for quite a while too, and then I decided I simply must join in, since I've bored everyone with constantly talking about Dream Theater and I figure people here would be more understanding :) I'm Milena, 19, from Serbia, I study English (1st year) and obsess over music. I'm mostly a prog metal person, but I do enjoy trad metal(s), melodeath, gothic metal and various genre hoppers, as well as prog rock and even some gothy music.

So I guess this is the place to start. After lurking for quite some time I've decided to come out of hiding and say hello.

I'm Kwyjibo, aka Harry from Germany. Dream Theater fan since Images & Words. Currently 41 years old aiming on turning 42 later this year. Think that makes me one of the older members.

My music taste is mostly Prog, Metal, Rock, the occasional pop song, some blues and jazz.

I will probably not post much, because most of the time I'm too lazy to think of something but be assured that I will read almost anything, especially if my working day is boring  ;D

Hola all,
  I am Zach, and I am truely noo. As I just found you I must have been lost. Also have only been a fan of DT  since about 2004. Imagine the shame.
  I live in central Texas, I'm super-duperly excited about DT at acl live moody theater on July 7th. I have a problem though. Two tickets and no one to take with me. I have a feeling I'm in the right place to remedy this. So who lives in/around Austin with not the means to get to this event? I just couldn't bare to take someone that lacks the ability to understand I mean enjoy this show.

Actually, Finnish has a lot of vowels. There are no words like "strengths" (one vowel, nine letters). But we have a word "hääyöaie" (nine letters, eight wovels). It means something like "wedding night intention".

I've been posting here for a while now, mainly in the genesis survivor but I never introduced myself properly so here goes.

My name is Erik and I live in Sweden. I'm seventeen years old and have been a DT fan for almost a year. My musical journey began when I was 12 years old and bought Guitar Hero. I soon discovered that the music there was a million times better than what was on the radio and I found my two first favorite bands: Iron Maiden and Avenged Sevenfold. These were the first bands that i listened to a lot. Guitar Hero also provided my first introduction to Dream Theater via "Pull Me Under". I thought it was a good song but I didn't dig in to it any more. When I was fifteen I started paying attention to the bands my dad used to play (Mainly Genesis and Marillion) and discovered that it was some high quality shit. When I rediscovered DT it was for me just a perfect balance between prog and metal and they have been my favorite band ever since. I am currently consuming more music than ever before and I am always open to suggestions.

Bands I am currently digging into:
Opeth
Rush
Haken
Post-Gabriel Genesis

Interestingly enough, I got into DT through Frets on Fire, a free Guitar Hero clone for the PC, where ITNOG was available as a custom download. By the time I had managed to get through the instrumental, I had fallen in love with the song.

I plan on doing so - both Genesis and Gabriel are on my DTF-based recommendation list. Problem is that this list is soooo long that it might take time to reach him.

Have no fear, though, for his time shall come!

Nah, I haven't heard that much King Crimson. Just the first two albums.

Another noob here. 

I'm an historian / policy analyst, and metalhead lifer.  I first became a fan of DT when I saw the 'Pull Me Under' video on Muchmusic in 1993 or so, drifted away for years, but am now back in a big way.   

In the intervening years, thanks in part to this band, I became interested in old school progressive rock like King Crimson, Gabriel-era Genesis, and Captain Beefheart as well as technical metal like Watchtower, Cynic, and Anacrusis.  So in addition to liking DT's music, I also feel like I owe them something for this other stuff.   :smiley:

Hello all. My name is Diego and I a join the DTF! Yes! come to brazil dream theater! Pleaes you have come not in 7 years! Why you no come to brazil?! I wait for you. Ok

Just kidding guys. My name really is Diego, but I can actually speak English. I've been a DT fan now for some 7 years and I play bass. They're pretty much my favorite band, although my music taste is, I say at the risk of sounding like a douche, quite eclectic. I'm originally from Monterrey, Mexico, but I've lived and studied in some parts of the US (Phoenix and Miami). For the past few gets I've been living in both the US and with my family in Monterrey and in The Monster, as we Mexicans not-so-endearingly refer to our most massive culsterfuck of a metropolis, Mexico City. I'm currently studying international law with a further focus on economy and philosophy. I've been visiting this site for a while now without an account, so I'm mostly familiar. Anyway, just wanted to say hello. Seems like a cool DT community.

Hey,  :tup

I might as well write a short introduction as my first post on DTF!

I started listening to DT in 1999 when "Scenes From A Memory" was released, an older friend of a friend had brought the album to a party at the time and I remember everyone  tripping when they heard "Dance of Eternity!" To this day that combo of "Home" followed by "Dance of Eternity" is still one of the best one-two punch combos in metal! We listened to that album most of the summer and it is an album that brings back a lot of good memories for me. Anyway, I lost touch with DT after that summer but rediscovered them when "Train of Thought" came out, loved it! Then another long, very long, period of absence began - and I didn't really get back into them until just a few months ago! Of course I was aware they were still around but I didn't keep track of their releases. So now I have a lot of albums to dig through - and it is basically this excavation of the albums that has led me to sign up because I'm probably more in love with DT now than ever  :D Anyways, nice to meet you all and I'm looking forward to talk and discuss some DT with you.

Heyho! Nice to meet you, enjoy your stay. Don't be shy, actively participate in discussions and stuff - too many new members are quickly falling into obscurity.
