Love Kayo (who I voted for) but i'm ok with tool winning because I think they have a better chance of nocking DT out of the running, and the whole compitition will be much more interesting without DT fan boys destroying everything in their path.

How could anyone vote against DT? They are the gods of prog metal, they change time signature every few bars, and their vocalist is the most accomplished psuedo-classical singer in modern compositional music. Indeed, voting against DT is like voting against god. It's a logical fallacy which will incur the wrath of legions of followers. Except god can't sweep pick arpeggios like Petrucci.

I look up, I'm almost blinded
by the warmth of what's inside me
and the taste that's in my soul,
but I'm dead inside as I stand alone...

Don't be, I have nothing against DT, or their fans, I'm pretty ambivalent twards them thouth I do ocassionaly like their side projects, its just that if they get through the next round they will go all the way for sure, and ive seen that happen with them too many times on this site, and I'm pretty sure Tool could stop them by grabbing some prog-metal swing votes as well as getting the anti-DT votes and those of fans of more atmospheric sounds.

Or Porcupine Tree fanboys destroying everything in their path, or Tool fanboys destroying everything in their path, or Opeth fanboys destroying everything in their path.

Sorry but seeing as Talk Talk came within 6 votes of beating DT, you've only picked them as a scapegoat, which is so immature. The real problem with this poll is that people vote for the most popular band, because they don't regularly listen to both bands, and therefore vote for the one they actually listen to. This means that the most popular bands stroll through, and is why Porcupine Tree will win the overall trophy, because they are the most accessible prog band to all subgenre fans.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets fed up of pretentious 'purists' using DT to bash everything they hate about modern prog. Mainly that people who aren't 'die hard fans' liking it. Sacrilege!

Ah, I was only kidding. Fanboy I may be, I'm not one of the obsessive compulsive infatuated fanboys (anymore, at least)

Whoa buddy, getting a little fired up there. I'm also going to do everything in my power to not let PT dominate, although I do enjoy a bit of their work... and to label me a modern prog basher? thats down right insulting, look at my reviews or ask me what I listen to I am not walter, I love modern prog just a different strain of it than yourself and I'm actually not too into alot of the "classic" bands.
 
Last I checked not liking DT was an acceptable opinion. And I'm not even doing anything against DT, as I mentioned I voted Kayo even though I don't think they stand a chance against DT the way Tool do, I was just commenting that I wouldn't mind seeing tool win this and take out DT... the same way you might prefer to see Kayo Dot win and give DT a better chance...

I would prefer Kayo Dot to win because they are the better band, not because it would make it easier for DT to win. I even voted for Talk Talk against Dream Theater in their round because they are the better band.

Of course not liking DT is an acceptable opinion, Re-read my post. I said that you should be voting for the band you like the most, not the one who's going to knock out bands, the fans of which you dislike LOL.

Also your music taste is remarkably similar to mine, so once again, try to do your research before you 'have a go'.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: DT fanboys are annoying, but DT haters are far worse.

Tool, partially because I like them and partially because I'm not a Kayo Dot fan.

I think both bands are no great shakes, so Tool is lesser of two evils after all.Sleepy

Where do us DT "think they're OK and have a few good albums but are seriously overhyped" sorts come into it? Wink
