The second edition of Metal with an orchestra… it was pretty groundbreaking the first time, this time, it’s pretty epic, a little vanilla, still pretty cool… with a pretty different, newer setlist of course.

Music Theories/MLG
Another release with Mike Portnoy on it? Ok! Live album from last fall’s tour supporting the 3rd album. In case you forgot this is the group with Portnoy and Neal Morse along with Steve Morse and Dave LaRue and singer Casey McPherson. Kind of a prog rock leaning hard rock with hints of like Muse and stuff. Cool stuff.
