Dream Theater: 12 steps suite

Recommended Posts

I have always been passionate about music, especially two characteristics: heavy metal (many genres) and complex but well tied arranges (any genre that does this attracts me). Some time ago, while listening to Dream Theater (that meets both characteristics that I like), I came across this set of 5 (plus prologue) songs that are connected between albums. They are called the "12 steps suite", whose lyrics talk about the former drummer (Mike Portnoy) problem with his addiction to alcohol and other drugs, his steps to recovery and his thoughts and feelings during each of this steps. I know addiction to substances is not the same as addiction to games, but these lyrics made me think about addiction and helped me some times. So I thought I would share them with you.

Dream Theater is a progressive metal band. Listen to the songs if you think you would like the style.

- The Mirror (Prologue) -> Lyrics

- The Glass Prison -> Lyrics

- This Dying Soul -> Lyrics

- The Root Of All Evil -> Lyrics

- Repentance -> Lyrics

- The Shattered Fortress -> Lyrics

I hope this helps, or at least I hope you like them!

P.D.: Talk to me if you are interested in talking about music. I am always open to listen to new things, and also willing to share more music.
