Ghost Ship Octavius - Delirium

Ghost Ship Octavius arrived on the scene a few years ago, without making much of a noise, as their independently released eponymous and quite brilliant debut album, was conveniently lost and buried in the sea of mediocre releases that the well-established labels seem to flood the scene with, being too straightforward for the prog nerds and too eclectic for the troo crowd.

Dream Theater - Distance Over Time

Dream Theater followed their overblown swan song flop for Roadrunner Records with a lot of damage control and by taking a number of safe decisions. So, after an ambitious tour for it, their toured their best album, on its 25th anniversary and now they undertake a 20th anniversary tour for another of their more famous albums. Also their debut with Sony/Inside Out and their 14th overall album is as safe as it could be.
