Band: Liquid Tension Experiment
LTE is a side project for Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater. Very similar in style to Dream Theater, but entirely instrumental. Quite a variety is on display here as there are some insanely fast technical numbers and some really slow ballady ones. The original was written, practiced, and recorded in the space of a week, according to liner notes on the CD, which makes it all the more amazing. Prog and tech metal fans will love this stuff. After completing the second CD, it was decided to not continue this side project, so it is officially disbanded.
