Heaviest Dream Theater SongsOperation_Fortitude Dream Theater is probably best known for their melodic masterpieces, but they also have their moments of sheer METAL...
The Top Ten
I feel like every song from Train of Thought except Vacant should be in the top 15 at least, this album was Dream Theater's album to everybody who argued they weren't a metal band and they delivered the heaviness in spades. Honor Thy Father is probably the heaviest song because of the intro alone and then everything just gets heavier, and if there was ever a shredding keyboard solo it's the solo on this song. - Derrick_Fox
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!
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
After the intro, I am literally banging my head the whole time.V 1 Comment
Its hard to choose fron honour thy father and the glass prison but this should be under then.
Ahh yes. The infamous Labrie Rap. - Operation_Fortitude
Where metal meets rap in the best way ever.
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
Brutal prog metal intro melds into mail riff seamlessly! Catchy chorus and great all around performance by the whole band!
This literally sounds like alice in chains
I love this song especially the double bass drumming in the intro. Very heavy songV 2 Comments
The drum work on this one is outstanding!
That triplet riff toward the end.
Heavy powerful beautiful woah
Easily the most heavy. Awesome riffage!
Probably one of the best petrucci shreds.
Very heavy in my opinion at least 5
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.
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.
The whole segment from ~5:00 to ~8:00 is just brutal.
