    I saw Opeth supporting Dream Theater they're worth a listen.
    Kamelot are next on my list to check out.
    If you haven't listened to Mars Volta, then do!
    I nearly suggested Mars Volta

    Deloused in the Comatorium is one of my all time favourites.

    Quite crazy noisy compared to dream theatre though.

    Yep - don't buy them if you want to relax your brain!

    Yeah I rather like Kamelot. Cool singer. My fave album is called the Black halo. They are different to Dream Theater though, less intense soloing.
    Sure - in the general area of interesting bands who do real textures, with some metal stuff and can be tuneful too.







    I wanted not to like that Kamelot but I bloody loved it!

    Karnivool could be worth a listen too.

    This thread reminded me of a band I used to listen to a bit called Pagans Mind. Super cheesy but this track definitely has Dream Theater vibes!

    Riverside.

     Opeth from Heritage onwards. Or even their earlier stuff if you don’t mind the death vocals.

    +1 for Haken - massively influenced by Dream Theater and Mike Portnoy borrowed them to play a load of DT stuff for a tour a couple of years ago.

    Spock's Beard

    Frost*

    Redemption

    Spock's Beard and Frost* are a bit less metal than DT, but Redemption are pretty similar.
