Funny enough, can't stand La Brie either. I actually avoid DT because of the vocals.
I'm an avid Tool and Porcupine Tree fan, but I enjoy quite a few other bands.
When it comes to prog metal, I like a bunch of bands but Tool and PT prevail greatly.
I'll read some of your reviews soon, see how you perceive the music that i listen to as well. ;]
WOW! well we seem to agree a lot of current progressive rock!
Hope you enjoy reading my reviews - most of the live concert reviews are posted on my blog (see my siggie), most of my album reviews are to be found at http://www.progarchives.com
, just search on my username over there: Antennas.
