Heaviest Dream Theater Songs

Dream Theater is probably best known for their melodic masterpieces, but they also have their moments of sheer METAL...

The Top TenXW

1Honor Thy Father

Honor Thy Father is an excellently written and produced song. I just love the part in the middle when you think it's letting up, but then...

DON'T CROSS THE CROOKED STEP... And it's just beginning. The last chorus is pretty much pure anger. - Operation_Fortitude

The song is just awesome and very angry

I love this song! at first I wasnt sure about the rap, but now I'm on board!

2The Glass Prison

The Glass Prison can be best described as a 13 minute brutal assault on your eardrums. Heavy from start to finish, it doesn't let up even for a moment. - Operation_Fortitude

The first Dream theater song I ever heard and my favourite, definitely the most brutal! Train of thought is the most heavy album in my opinion - dragon13304

3Panic Attack

Its hard to choose fron honour thy father and the glass prison but this should be under then.

4This Dying Soul

Ahh yes. The infamous Labrie Rap. - Operation_Fortitude

Where metal meets rap in the best way ever.

5A Nightmare to Remember

I love this song especially the double bass drumming in the intro. Very heavy song

6The Dark Eternal Night

The drum work on this one is outstanding!

That triplet riff toward the end.

Heavy powerful beautiful woah


Probably one of the best petrucci shreds.

8Endless Sacrifice

Endless Sacrifice may very well have Dream Theater's Heaviest Chorus, as well as a brutally awesome instrumental part, but it does give you breaks during the verses. - Operation_Fortitude

In my opinion, it is just the best heavy metal chorus ever made. It's definitely impossible not to headbang to it. Petrucci's harmonics techniques alongside his mastered and incredibly fast riffs match perfectly Portnoy's heavyweight drumming and insanely fit fills.

9As I Am

Just by hearing the intro, you know thing are going to get heavy. As I Am is sort of a prelude for things to come in Train Of Thought. - Operation_Fortitude

This literally sounds like alice in chains

12The Root of All Evil

Very heavy in my opinion at least 5

13In the Name of God

This song is amazing start to finish. The opening riff is one of my favorites in all music. Even without knowing that there is morse code in the song, its epic.

This song is slow, heavy and has epic lyrics.
