Elements of Persuasion
Elements of Persuasion, released March 29, 2005, is Dream Theater lead singer James LaBrie's third solo album, his first two being Keep It to Yourself and MullMuzzler 2, which were released under his band MullMuzzler.
Unlike his previous solo works, this one is released under his name - as suggested by his publisher. He also hired some new musicians, among others the new guitar virtuoso Marco Sfogli from Italy and Richard Chycki as sound engineer, resulting in a different sound. Despite the changes, the album is still based on the same general style used on the past two albums, although with a much heavier sound. This is the last of LaBrie's solo albums to feature drummer Mike Mangini. He would join Dream Theater five years later.
Sons Of Apollo
Psychotic Symphony is the debut studio album by American supergroup Sons of Apollo, released on October 20, 2017.

All members were involved in the creation of the songs, with Portnoy and Sherinian as the main songwriters. The album was released as CD, digital download, vinyl and a special edition containing a bonus disc with instrumental versions of the song and an alternate mix of "Opus Maximus". The band began touring to promote the album in early 2018.

Isolate is also the first album to feature new keyboardist Lasse Finbråten after Espen Storø's departure at the end of recording of The 1st Chapter. Lasse Finbråten added more keyboard/synthesizer sounds to the album in both soloing and overall use. This is different from the previous album as Espen Storø's sound centered on the use of the piano.
The album entered the Norwegian national charts at number 70 in August, 2007.
The Unforgotten Path
The Winery Dogs
Hot Streak is the second album by the American hard rock supergroup The Winery Dogs. It was released on October 2, 2015, but was premiered on September 29 on AllMusic.
Commenting on the record, guitarist and vocalist Richie Kotzen said:
The opening song "Oblivion", released as the album's first single, was composed during the band's debut album's sessions, and performed live in its subsequent tour. Because Kotzen had the lyrics for the chorus but not for the verses, every time the song was performed, the lyrics would be different.
"Empire" was almost left out of the album, but drummer Mike Portnoy "begged" Kotzen not to discard it since he appreciated the song and wanted to finish it.
The album debuted at No. 6 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart, selling 13,000 copies in its first week.
All tracks written by The Winery Dogs.

As with nearly every Ayreon album, it is a concept album with each character being portrayed by one singer. However unlike previous albums, The Human Equation is not a sci-fi story but take place almost entirely in the mind of a character called Me who is in a coma after a car accident, with each song consisting of one day spent in coma. While his Wife and Best Friend are at his side in the real world, Me, trapped in his own mind, encounters representations of his own feelings and recall his life from his childhood to his accident.

Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in E flat minor Op.1 (Millennium)
Yngwie J. Malmsteen
Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra is the eleventh studio album by guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen, released on 30 June 1998 through Spitfire Records. The album was Malmsteen's first attempt at a classical concerto suite featuring electric guitar solos. All of the music was composed by Malmsteen, though his compositions were scored by his friend and fellow musician David Rosenthal. The music is conducted by Yoel Levi, and performed by the Czech Philharmonic.
Malmsteen has been keen to emphasize that unlike other collaborations between rock musicians and classical orchestras, which feature a rock group playing with orchestral accompaniment, this is orchestral music which happens to have an electric guitar as its solo instrument. He has acknowledged that in many of the pieces he had to overdub his guitar solos in order to make them "fit". However, the entire piece has since been performed live in Japan with the New Japan Philharmonic and is available as a DVD release.
Fear The Unknown
Technical Difficulties is the third studio album by heavy metal band Racer X, released on December 8, 1999 through Mercury Records, and on April 25, 2000 through Shrapnel Records and Mascot Records. The album's title track evolved from the introductory song "Metal Dog" on guitarist Paul Gilbert's 1994 instructional video Terrifying Guitar Trip; it later appeared in the 2009 video game Brütal Legend, and was covered by cellist duo 2Cellos on their 2012 album In2ition, for which they also shot a promotional video. "B.R.O." stands for "Bach Rip-Off", a homage to a previous track, "Y.R.O.", from the band's 1986 debut album Street Lethal.
In Absentia is the seventh studio album by British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, first released on 24 September 2002. The album marked several changes for the band, with it being the first with new drummer Gavin Harrison and the first to move into a more heavy metal and progressive metal direction, contrary to past albums' psychedelic and pop rock sounds. Additionally, it was their first release on a major record label, Lava Records. It was very well received critically and commercially, with it often being considered the band's crowning achievement, and selling over triple what any of the band's prior albums had in the past.
That Was Then, This Is Now
The Great Escape
The Great Escape is the fourth album by Swedish progressive metal band Seventh Wonder. It was recorded over the Spring and Summer of 2010, and was released on December 3, 2010.

It is also the last album recorded with Johnny Sandin on drums, as he left the band due to personal reasons after the recording and subsequent shows. "Alley Cat" is the first Seventh Wonder song to have an accompanying music video from the band.
The title track 'The Great Escape' is an epic song based on the poems 'Aniara' by Swedish Nobel laureate Harry Martinson. It deals with the tragedy of a spaceship which, originally bound for Mars with a cargo of surviving colonists from a ravaged and destroyed Earth, is ejected from the solar system and becomes entangled in an existential struggle. The first track 'Wiseman' doubles loosely as a prequel to the events of 'The Great Escape'.
