Heaviest Dream Theater Albums

The Top Ten

1 Train of Thought

When we talk about heaviness, this is the only album that almost have all their heaviest songs.

Damn this is a heavy and aggressive album. Especially the last track, in one part James is screaming and singing normally at the same time via layered vocals.

2 Systematic Chaos

My favorite very heavy

3 Awake

I actually think this is heavier than TOT. Also the guitar tone is MUCH heavier. It's also my favourite

The sheer intensity of 6:00, The Mirror, & Lie are awesome.

4 Black Clouds & Silver Linings

Heavier than six degrees

5 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

Black clouds is way heavier than this album the first four songs are heavy but that is it.

Yes very heavy like goodnight kiss and solitary shell lol

6 Dream Theater
7 Octavarium

Not that heavy outside of Panic Attack and The Root of All Evil. Probably my favorite, though. - Metarock

This album is heavy if you like pop

Heavier then most people think.

Not really, just the root of all evil, panic attack, and never enough - Songsta41

8 A Dramatic Turn of Events

Lost Not Forgotten is very heavy in my opinion.

9 Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory
10 Images and Words

The Contenders

11 Distance Over Time
12 When Dream and Day Unite
13 Falling Into Infinity
14 The Astonishing
