No ****, Symphony X wishes they were DT. Well that's why they've been copying DT to death all these years lol.

My top 5 favourite bands:
Angra, cos I like them,
Pagan's Mind, cos I like them,
Circus Maximus, cos I like them,
LTE, cos I like them and...
DT, cos I hate them.

(Shadow Gallery, Adagio and Nevermore tie for sixth)

Maybe I should chuck in SX cos “The Odyssey” ****ing pwns most **** I've heard. But they're not all that consistent, I love five other songs from them: “Candlelight Fantasia”, “A Fool's Paradise,” “Of Sins and Shadows,” “Out of the Ashes” and “Inferno (Unleash the Fire).” The rest are average at best.

Symphony X sound like DT in the same way Dimmu Borgir sound like The Cars.

When did I say SX sound like DT? What I meant was they stole many ideas and concepts from them. They even admit it in tons of interviews.

Dream Theater - complex as hell, but still has a strong melodic discography in Images and Words and Awake.

Ozzy Osbourne - Randy Rhodes rocked.

System of a Down - Extremely simple guitars, but the vocals are exceptionally engaging.

Queen - Obvious.

I dunno, might have just been the vocals or the certain song I listen to. I'll admit I only heard one song from Symphony X. I guess I should listen to some more. I'm not afraid to admit I was mistaken.

I thinks the vocals are one of the factors that differ between the bands the most

I don't personally think DT and SX sound that similar, but it does seem to be a common comparison to make, and they are both progressive metal bands, so Pipers isn't totally wrong.
