The technically skilled guitar playing of John Petrucci elevated Dream Theater to the upper echelons of modern heavy metal. While its schedule has actually constantly developed, the Long Island-based quintet has actually consistently delivered sharp-edged music. Dream Theater is understood for its high-energy show performances. While they have actually released numerous live albums-- Live at the Marquee, taped at the London club; Live in Japan, recorded throughout the New music in Progress tour in 1993; and a triple CD and DVD, Live Scenes from New York-- they continue to be one of heavy metal's most bootlegged bands. Dream Theater: Early Years Originally named Majesty by Berklee University of Music students Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy, the band soon broadened with the addition of keyboard player Kevin Moore and vocalist Chris Collins. Releasing an eight-tune demo, Majesty Demo, as Majesty, the team offered 1,000 copies within 6 months.
