    The first 3 Angra cd's are masterpieces , especially the very underrated Fireworks which contains awesome songs . Rebirth is ok but too common

    I agree with every word, except the part concerning Rebirth: though I prefer the "old" Angra, I think it's also a very good record, not just common :p

    that's great to hear !! :)

    if you have difficulties finding other songs, just add me on icq :p

    I'd rank the Angra albums in this fashion: 1. Holy Land 2. Rebirth 3. Fireworks 4. Angels Cry

    Why isn't this thread call'd: "Recommend me some shitty Dream Theater copies"

    Making the same album seven times is progressive? Using lots of different obscure time signatures is progressive?

    Give me a fucking break!

    I've come to conclusion that "prog" is just that shitty genre and has nothing to do with the word "progressive". 'cause those so-called "prog" bands are far from actually progressive music.

    March, eh? Well all I know is that it was during school and kicked ass. I was at about the third row... if you can call them rows, we were all just crowded around the stage, heh.

    And warman, please change your avatar. :Smug:

    You were probably right behind me then, I was in the second 'row' There was a guy behind me that was talking to some people, sounded like a real 'know-it-all' talking like a total prog nerd...that wasn't you was it? ;) I kept wanting to turn around and punch him in the face...

    sorry I'm done complaining now :D

    To contribute something... check out Sieges Even. They have gone from Watchtower-style Prog/Thrash via Rush-esque Prog Rock to groovy, funny Jazz Fusion Metal. Great band, too bad they don´t exist anymore.
