We've finally made it to the Championship Round of Loudwire's March Metal Madness 2013! A total of 32 bands entered the competition, and with four nail-biting rounds having passed, we're left with two acts competing for the title of best metal album of all time.
The Devil Horn Region of 2013's March Metal Madness comes down to Dream Theater's 'Images and Words' taking on Judas Priest's 'Screaming for Vengeance' to advance to the final four as we try to determine the best metal album of all-time.
The 2013 March Metal Madness bracket continues in the Devil Horn Region with this Round 2 pairing of AC/DC's huge-selling 'Back in Black' against Dream Theater's prog-metal standard 'Images and Words.'
We're in Round 2 of Loudwire's March Metal Madness 2013 and we're letting the fans choose the best metal album of all time. After an exciting first round in the Stage Dive region, half of the albums in contention have been eliminated, and the big dogs are only just beginning to grit their teeth.
As a global band, Dream Theater want fans all over the world to be able to read the latest news about the group in their own languages. To help accomplish that, they are asking for help creating translated versions of the Dream Theater news page.
It's fitting that Loudwire's 2013 March Metal Madness would slot Dio in the Devil Horn region. The band's classic 'Holy Diver' album meets up with Dream Theater's breakout release, 'Images and Words,' in this Round 1 matchup to determine the best metal album of all-time.
It's a new year and Dream Theater isn't wasting any time getting back to work. Guitarist John Petrucci has checked in online with a photo update, showing off the band's studio and suggesting that recording is about to commence with the caption, "Let the fun begin …"
Dream Theater have done their part, and will now wait for the editors to complete their work on a new upcoming live DVD that's expected to arrive in 2013. The group played Buenos Aires, Argentina last Sunday and Monday (Aug. 19 and 20) at Estadio Luna Park to provide the basis for the upcoming release.
If hard rocking guitar music is your thing, then get yourself to the 'Shred 'Til You're Dead' tour this summer. Dream Theater guitar virtuoso John Petrucci heads up the bill, which also features former Nevermore axeman Jeff Loomis and Animals as Leaders guitar slinger Tosin Abasi.
