Just checked those bands and it's quite interesting. Sometimes do sound a little bit like Dream Theater (not as good of course), kind of progressive metal- TRESHOLD could be really good with a better singer...
Do you know any other good bands from INSIDE OUT...?

I've seen Symphony X about halve a year ago, here in Eindhoven. I really must say I enjoyed there concert. However, I'm not too familiar with their songs. So therefore I liked the Dream Theater concert better :P

Apparently "Pain Of Salvation" is also worth checking out. I've heard the guys in this band and Symphony X are about as talented as the guys in Dream Theater.

Symphony X is really good, although the only album I've heard so far is "V"- some tracks are avarage, but some are realy awesome! Not sure if they are as good musicians as guys from DT (technically great, but often only a show off, losing the melody), but still- better than all the crap in the radio!
THRESHOLD is really growing on me- they're from UK, sound sometimes like early DT (Images And Words), quite good melodies, some instrumental bits are pretty good... Lirycally often pretty banal and... well, melodies could be sometimes less obvious, but... again- better than any new stuff I've heard in the radio in the last 2-3 years...

Maybe not there best imo,but still it's a solid album.You should also get 'The divine wings of tragedy',personely it's my favorite.Also,Guitar World Magazine names Micheal Romeo as one of the 100 greatest metal guitarist of all time.

Well, after "V" it was pretty disappointing...
The title epic is great, but the rest... sth's missing...
Also lyrics are sometimes quite tacky...I mean knight tales and "the Odyssey"...C'mon!
