Biografia

Long Island, Nova Iorque, Estados Unidos (1985 – presente)

Dream Theater é uma banda de originária de Long Island, Nova Iorque, Estados Unidos e formada em 1985 por John Myung, Mike Portnoy e John Petrucci, enquanto frequentavam o curso de Música da Universidade de Berklee, em Boston, Massachusetts.

Antes de se chamar “Dream Theater”, eram conhecidos por “Majesty”. Este nome surgiu durante um concerto do Rush, em sua turnê do álbum “Power Windows”. John Petrucci, John Myung e Mike Portnoy dormiram na rua para comprar ingressos e assistir ao espetáculo, até que, ao ouvir a canção “Bastille Day” (do álbum Caress Of Steel), surgiu o comentário de que aquela música era ‘majestosa’, ficando assim o nome.

O trio foi em busca de mais membros para a banda. John Petrucci convidou o colega de escola Kevin Moore para o posto de tecladista do grupo. Em seguida, outro amigo de infância do guitarrista, Chris Collins, foi recrutado como vocalista, após os membros da banda ouvirem-no cantar um cover da música “Queen of the Reich”, do Queensrÿche.

Durante os primeiros meses de 1986, realizaram diversos concertos nas redondezas da cidade de Nova Iorque. Lançaram sua primeira demo com seis músicas, uma amostra de seu com referências da música clássica, que influenciou muitas bandas posteriormente. Trata-se do disco “The Majesty Demos”, cujas mil primeiras cópias foram vendidas em questão de seis meses, tornando a banda relativamente popular no cenário musical novaiorquino.

    i don't think so... i just cannot get inside the album 100%, comparing with the 3 firsts albums (as @mothertruker says), but yeah, it's progressive after all, and?? and lool i did not ''only listen to metal'' like you sayd @nicolasbj

    v that's because you're a close-minded metalhead: Awake it's a PROGRESSIVE metal album. usually people who just only listen to metal tends to disqualify the other genres because they don't understand them.

    i don't like Awake at all, i mean, after ''Voices'' the album turns into a boring shit... IAW and ''recently'' Systematic Chaos are my favorites

    I still only have the first 3 album as reference, and yes, to me it (Awake) sometimes sound like a melting pot, not all of it, it is a good album but I think IaW is far more consistent. Metropolis parte1 is a 9 minutes long orgasm, Take the time is catchy as fuck and Under a Glass Moon is a personal fap, i mean, fav.

    Awake and I&W are the best and most transcendent DT's albums. My personal favorite albums are 6DOIT and TOT (cool story bro).

    How stucked? All tracks are fully enjoyable and get their best ideas. If you ask me for DT's best drums, best guitar riff, best solo, best keyboard riff, best vocal line or best anything i will always have to refer to an Awake track.

    Mine is that ToT is their best album by far. This opinion is final and not subject to discussion.

    I like the album, there are a few anazing moments in it, but aren't some filers ideas in here? I get the idea that WDADU was-what-it-was-while-trying-to-be-something-else, IaW was an hour-long stream of different but amazing ideas coming [indeed cumming] together, but Awake sounds like a melting-pot of ideas stucked together and some work pretty good (space dye vest, erotomania, mirror)but others not so much, resulting on a too long album for the interest that it has. All this is IMO, feel free to disagree and prove me wrong.

    What you talking about? Awake is the definitive Dream Theater album, and an important chapter in the history of music.

    I know this may be late, but @Motherruker, Awake is a pretty amazing album. It's pretty dark, has a lot of good elements, and just feels more like a tragic journey getting worse and worse. It does help that this was the album that shows the most tension (mainly due to Kevin Moore pulling a mental breakdown and leaving the band).

    "I was looking through a clothing catalog and saw a picture of a girl modeling this piece of clothing called a space-dye vest. And, so, I fell in love with her [laughs] for some strange reason and so the minute I did that, the minute I was just like obsessed with this person, I was like, 'why am I doing that?' and I noticed that I was doing it a lot lately. And I think the prime reason that I was doing that, and this is what I figured out at the time, was that I had just come out of a relationship where I'd gotten dumped, basically, and so I think the situation was that I wasn't finished giving all that I was ready to give, so I was just, like, throwing it around, you know, just aiming it in different directions. It was a total case of projection. And this song is just trying to sort it out and just kind of admitting that I'm just kind of lost. So it's kind of a dark song. It was very cathartic though."

    @nicolasbj, I allways thought Train of Thought was the heavier, but I do see you point, there are a lot of almost metal-clichés in Awake.
