Are you one of those that think _ALL_ metal is just about screaming and distortion? You obviously haven't heard about for instance Dream Theater.
They've been around since '85, so they obviously know what they're doing, and they're as well well known for their proficiency with instruments.
Just spreading the word, I know many will be grateful for this tip. Here is one of my favorite songs, if you want other similar ones, check out "Through her eyes", "Finally free", or "the spirit carries on".
