This is a revisit of a thread (here) I get this asked of me often, tho I know not why. So here we go :

  1. Dream Theater
  2. Pink Floyd
  3. Course of Empire
  4. Machines of Loving Grace
  5. Type O Negative

I’m not going to offer a detailed explanation, the site offers enough references to them (I hope) that indicate why.

Dropping off the list were :

  • Slayer
  • White Zombie
  • Iron Maiden

I guess that’s growth and growing.
