Songs that are so long they span multiple time zones. Concept albums about chess games. 3000 time signature changes per bar. It can only be Prog Metal, everyone's favorite Metal sub genre! Alternate video title: What Does James LaBrie Do During Dream Theater Instrumental Breaks? 🤘

What do you guys think of Prog Metal? EXCITING or BORING??

I love being a singer in a prog metal band. I get paid the same as everyone else and I get to go backstage and chill half the time. It's like cheating.

Since Prog Metal is quite intricate, you should not call it a Nutshell.

You should call it a PROG METAL PERFECTLY ENCLOSED IN A HOLLOW SPHERE WHOSE SURFACE AREA IS 4πR².

EDIT: Did a small correction to the grammar. Earlier it was PROG METAL IN A PERFECTLY ENCLOSED and now it's PROG METAL PERFECTLY ENCLOSED IN A… .


Thanks to Michael Bauer for pointing that out. Thanks Mate!!

Unironically, I listened to Scale the Summit and remembered that they don’t have a singer after about half an hour lol

That's why James Labrie has enough time to make so many Cameos

Damn, wish there was a band that makes this kind of music

When the song is longer than the average pop punk album

Every DT concert where James LaBrie disappears in the middle and comes back at least half an hour later and you'd already forgotten he exists.

its hard being a prog singer, you can't even headbang while the rest of the band is doing their solo stuff, cause they decided to let the time signature be freshly determined by Googles random number generator every other bar lmao

You forgot the part that goes from 3/4 to 163/72

The first time I made a friend of mine listen to Dream Theater, after 10 minutes he asked: is he ever going to sing?

I know the feeling. I was in a prog-metal band once and we managed to fit three whole vocalist changes and two keyboardist changes and even an indefinite hiatus into one instrumental section.

Yup, the unnecessary metric modulation at the end....that's us 🤣🤣🤣

I've always wondered what James LaBrie does offstage during DT's extended instrumental sections.

I love DT, BTW. And prog.

The funniest thing is when James Labries takes out the tamberine when he gets bored during the instrumental section.

I was thinking naaaah this solo is way too vanilla for prog, then 0:35 hit and I was pissing myself 😄 so right. Can't imagine how much effort went into a 72 second scetch, good job man 👍

Don't worry. In prog metal, the fans/the audiences can hear the lyrics through telepathy.

To be fair, this is more "Dream Theater in a nutshell." There are a lot of prog metal bands that forgo the obligatory wheedling!

Your way too talented Bradders, be it musically or comedically, your a maestro.
