The American progressive metal band was formed in the year 1985 by guitarist and backing vocalist John Petrucci, bass guitarist John Myung and drummer and backing vocalist Mike Portnoy. Dream Theater was originally formed under the name ‘Majesty’. The name was dropped owing to name clashes and copyright issues with another band.
The band started performing many gigs after they released their collection of demos titled ‘The Majesty Demos’ in 1986. The band’s first major release under the moniker ‘Dream Theater’ happened in 1989 when they came up with ‘When Dream and Day Unite’. The band received limited response from the public.
Their second album titled ‘Images and Words’ was released under Atco Records which again failed to rake in commercial success. However their song ‘Pull Me Under’ became the most played song on radio and received good response. Atco went on to produce a video clip for the song which saw heavy broadcasting on MTV.
Their albums ‘Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence’, ‘Black Clouds and Silver Linings’, ‘Octavarium’ are still very popular.
