Early Standing Band Dream Theater
With five members, they decided to name the band by the name of Majesty. According to the documentation DVD Score, five of them were lined up tickets for the Rush concert at the Berklee Performance Center while listening to Rush with a boom box. Portnoy then said that the ending of the song (Bastille Day) sounds very "majestic". That's when they decided Majesty is a good name for a band, and remained good until now.
At the moment - the moment, Portnoy, Petrucci and Myung still struggling with their course, also a part-time work and teaching. They become a tight schedule so that their tips have to decide between pursuing a career in music or terminate the band Majesty. But eventually wins Majesty and all three came out of Berklee to concentrate on a music career. Petrucci commented about this in the documentation DVD Score, said that while it is very difficult to ask the parents to go to music school. Longer and more difficult to convince her parents that she should get out of school.
Moore is also finally out of school, SUNY Fredonia, to concentrate with the band.
Their first album, When Dream And Day Unite recorded with Charlie Dominici as Kevin Moore as vocalist and keyboards player. Dominici was much older than the other members and others want to play music, so he then came out of the group. They then search for the ideal replacement for 2 years until finally met with James LaBrie, the vocalist of Canada through the auditions.
Together they recorded LaBrie Images And Words that catapulted their name into the international ranks with the hit "Pull Me Under" and "Another Day". Awake is their last album with Moore who was later replaced by Derek Sherinian for the album Falling Into Infinity. Sherinian also eventually be replaced by Jordan Rudess and the formation of these still survive to this day. They have launched a concept album Metropolis 2: Scenes From A Memory and a double album Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence. In 2003 they decided to record a non-concept album Train Of Thought is heavily influenced by thrash metal groups like Metallica.
