Dream Theater is one of the most prominent progressive metal group in the world today. Founded by Mike Portnoy, John Petrucci and John Myung, they have released eight studio albums, four live recordings and one short album (EP). Their first album, When Dream And Day Unite as recorded by Charlie Dominici Kevin Moore as lead singer and keyboards player. Dominici was much older than the other members and wanted to play other music, so he then came out of the group. They then find an ideal replacement for 2 years until finally met with James LaBrie, lead singer of Canada through the auditions.

Beginning with the collaboration of John Myung (bass), John Petrucci (guitar) and Mike Portnoy (drums) who studied at Berklee College of music school of Music, they then recruited Kevin Moore (keyboards) and Chris Collings (vocals). This group later changed its name to Dream Theater because there is another group also named Majesty and demand that they change the name.

Together they recorded LaBrie Images And Words that catapulted their name into the international ranks with the hit "Pull Me Under" and "Another Day". Awake is their last album with Moore who was later replaced by Derek Sherinian for the album Falling Into Infinity.
