There are lots of prog metal bands nowadays that are borrowing half their ideas from DT.
Again very well stated. I think I will just let you guys talk from now on. I just get into trouble all the time. :) There are very many well spoken people on this site. Good job guys. I have lots to say, but don't always have the tack to get it out properly. Maybe I could have someone proof read my drafts. :)
