If you like Abydos, you should also check out: Dream Theater, Vanden Plas
Abydos is a Metal Opera about loss, written as a side project by Andy Kuntz, the voice of Vanden Plas, based upon his own stage play called "The Inhabitants of my Diary". In his own words this is "the little boy's heavy mental shadow opera about the inhabitants of his diary". The music here resembles Vanden Plas's, which in my opinion is a good thing, but it's more melodic and has orchestral arrangements that make it stand on its own and the lyrics are darker and more profound. If you like Vanden Plas you'll like this album.
