Liquid Tension Experiment is the self-titled first studio album by instrumental rock/progressive metal supergroup Liquid Tension Experiment, released on March 10, 1998 through Magna Carta Records. The group was composed of Dream Theater bandmembers John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess and Mike Portnoy, as well as bassist Tony Levin. Track six, "Chris and Kevin's Excellent Adventure", is named after the photo sessions for the album in which the photographer kept calling Portnoy "Chris" and Levin "Kevin", whilst "Three Minute Warning" refers to Levin's frustration with his bandmates' insistence on composing rather than spontaneous jamming, and thus his ultimatum to leave the studio within three minutes unless they started to jam.
Spontaneous Combustion is an album by progressive metal / fusion group Liquid Trio Experiment, and is the result of the studio improvisations of Liquid Tension Experiment which occurred while John Petrucci was with his wife while she was giving birth. The trio of Mike Portnoy, Tony Levin and Jordan Rudess continued to write music during this period. It was released on October 23, 2007.
This DVD documents Mike Portnoy's innovative drumming in the highly acclaimed fusion/progressive metal music of Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment.

We have just discovered a new shining star in the bright Progressive rock universe, a comet named Philippe LUTTUN, whose forthoming arrival should make a deep impact ! This amazing French multi-instrumentalist offers today a cinematic concept-album inspired by Chernobyl's nuclear disaster that happened April 26th 1986, from its causes to its most terrific consequences. This is not for all audiences ! Published in the year 2014 on the Musea Parallèle label, "The Taste Of Wormwood - Voices From Chernobyl" displays eight grandiose tracks, entirely performed by Philippe Luttun, only helped by a female singer here and there. One could be reminded of Pink Floyd, Clearlight, Porcupine Tree, Liquid Tension Experiment or Pulsar, these influences being perfectly assimilated and remixed, often completed by slavic (The action takes place in the U.S.S.R.) or electro touches. In the end, there's no other way than admitting that the word "masterpiece" has been tailor-made for this album!
7 for 4's new album starts with Diffusion, which introduces us with a mellow jazzy guitar line. 7 For 4 didn't change their recipe: as with the previous albums, it soon changes for a rock-metal style which could remind me of the band Royal Hunt without lyrics. It's always cut by jazzy lines on bass and guitar, hard to hate, really. It's followed by Indigo Dunes, where the keyboards have a sound similar to the ones used by Liquid Tension Experiment, and a similar use too. In Overall, this track has a slower tempo than most of what 7 for 4 gave us by the past, but it's nonetheless really interesting, especially when considering the basslines taking their places in there. A really balanced piece, one of the best on the CD in my opinion.
