Acoustic Progressive Metal?!

I have completely and utterly fallen IN LOVE with this band, Pipo & Elo. They did a completely acoustic cover of Dream Theater’s album, Metropolis Pt. II: Scenes from s Memory.

You can listen to most of it here.
I recommend Overture 1928, Beyond This Life and Home. And the rest of them. And purchasing the album, because it’s COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY AND UTTERLY WORTH IT!

Seriously, I think the guitarist, Pipo, must actually be better than John Petrucci, because because he does all of the guitar solos and then some, as well as all of the keyboard parts on top of that. It really does add a whole new level of intrigue to the entire experience of the album.

They also did The Dance of Eternity FLAWLESSLY, even though DT says that it’s their hardest song for all of the instruments.
