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.

    tks for the insight @nicolasbj. Good to know that "A Fortune in Lies is a classic", I noticed that probably most of DT fans concider IaW the fisrt algum and completly overlook the actual debut. The album (and that gay-ish cover) needs moar love.

    DT JOURNAL (lets say)#5 || wow, I wasn't expecting all THIS from Images And Words. On a first listen Pull Me Under is probably the least intresting track along with Wait For Sleep.

    I think my life expectations dropped dramatically the day I started listening to this band.

    In my opinion, his voice was never the same after that 1994 incident.

    v On December 29, 1994, while vacationing in Cuba, LaBrie was stricken with a severe case of food poisoning from contaminated pork and while vomiting, he ruptured his vocal cords. He saw three throat specialists who all said there was nothing they could do except have him rest his voice as much as possible. However, on January 12, 1995, and against doctor's orders, he was on the Awake tour in Japan with his voice far from normal. LaBrie has said he did not feel vocally "normal" until at least 2002. LaBrie has said that this was a very hard time for him as a singer, and depression as a result caused him to consider departing from the band, although his bandmates supported him and told him to stay. After the Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence tour he discovered that his voice had fully returned. He has said that his voice was fully healed by time and training. (quote from Wikipedia).

    When did he lose he's voice's range? Is that why he nowadays always does the same high pitch?

    "A Fortune in Lies" is a classic, just remenber that epic live version with Labrie ("Live At The Marquee" album), when he still could sing at his 100%.

    I actually think it's mainly the production that makes it sound older. And together with The Ytse Jam, I've always found A Fortune in Lies to be an amazing straightforward track, and the way they played it on the previous tour (and Live at Luna Park) is more than enough proof imo.

    For those who are overlooking When Dream And Day Unite do it no more. There are some nice moments on Light Fuse And Get Away, Afterlife and The Ones Who Help To Set The Sun. The Ytse Jam probably is a fairly wellknown track so I nothing new there.

    "You will eventually end up growing tired of this band anyway. Everybody does." That generally applies to the bands that one listened a lot as a teenager. i.e. Metallica.

    I'm loving all this feedback and although you're problably right, I'll still go chronacly, i'm still on When Dream And Day Unite so what do you guys think about their debut? Any hidden gems and weird storys? NOTE: As self-centered as my "takeover" of this shoutbox may seem, that's not the case, I just want to imerse myself in this. if I have to hear LaBries earstabs (joke), it should be worth something.
