JAMES LABRIE Names The One Song That's Perfect For Any New DREAM THEATER Fans

It's from 1992.


Getting into any legacy band can be initially difficult. Getting into Dream Theater can be especially difficult given how much they've changed their sound over time. Still, if Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie had to pick any song to get new fans into the band, he'd go with "Metropolis – Part I: The Miracle and the Sleeper" from Images & Words.

LaBrie explained to Revolver that he'd pick the 1992 epic mostly because it encompasses a lot of what Dream Theater does, and because it's progressive as all hell.

"I think 'Metropolis – Part 1' would do it. You would hear that our sound is not all about just balls-to-the-wall, and it's more about creating an environment where it's a great ride and it's intense. It's exciting, it's dynamic. It's something that speaks differently to you, but at the same time, it's very intriguing.

"And that's one song that I still love to do whenever we do pull it out. I just think it's a great tune. It's an awesome tune. So definitely 'Metropolis – Part 1,' I think it would sink some people into the band make them go, 'Holy shit, what the hell's going on here?'"

Dream Theater is currently on the road with Devin Townsend and Animals As Leaders for their inaugural Dreamsonic traveling festival. Get the remaining dates below and get your tickets here.
