Dream Theater's fans are a dedicated bunch and the love definitely goes both ways. Band members John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess recently took some time to record video messages to thank their fans for pushing the group's 'Images and Words' album to victory in Loudwire's very own 2013 March Metal Madness competition to determine the best metal album of all-time. Watch both video messages below.
What an incredible March Metal Madness! With each round, the competition continued to heat up as fans rallied behind their favorite bands with ever-expanding crescendos of intensity.
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.
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.
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.
