MullMuzzler was the name given to vocalist James LaBrie's musical side project, wherein he had far greater creative input over the album's direction, unlike in Dream Theater. The band consists of LaBrie, Matt Guillory, Mike Mangini and other guests. The band released two albums as MullMuzzler - "Keep It To Yourself" (1999), and "MullMuzzler 2" (2001).

For simplicity's sake, MullMuzzler dropped the (rather confusing) band name, with "Elements of Persuasion" in 2005, simply crediting the album as a James LaBrie solo project.

Gothabilly comes from a blending of Gothic and Rockabilly. The earliest use of the word Gothabilly was by The Cramps in the late 70s who used it to describe their own blend of somber, Rockabilly influenced punk. Since then the term has come to describe a fashion trend in the Gothic subculture.

This is the interbreeding of Goth’s black silks, satins, lace and velvet with Country-Western elements like cowboy hats and boots, handkerchiefs, western shirts and bolo ties. Through in some elements from the retro culture revival, including stylized flames, 50s tattoo imagery and street-rods of every sort and you see where the aesthetic is heading. The current use of Gothabilly include both it’s fashion and music implications.

Many of today's Gothabilly bands seem to be from California. However it is by no means exclusive to that state. There are bands popping up all over the US and from many other countries. In fact one of the more notable English Goth bands (Fields of the Nephilim) had some serious Western influences and can be classified as Gothabilly.
The Brimstones, Graveyard Farmers, Jake the Evil Redneck, and Mr. Underhill are examples of gothabilly bands.

Fates Warning was founded as a heavy metal band, but after a few albums, their progressive rock tendencies started to emerge. Based in Connecticut, USA, the band's current lineup consists of Jim Matheos (Guitar), Ray Alder (Vocals) Joey Vera (Bass), and Mark Zonder (Drums).

Their first three albums are best known for lead singer John Arch's unusual vocal approach, and the lyrics deal mainly with fantasy themes. John Arch left after the third album and a new vocalist Ray Alder joined the band. Thereafter the lyrics took a more introspective turn. Their later works (post 1989) go more in a progressive rock direction.

While retaining elements of their metal heritage, Fates Warning grew increasingly complex, with much longer tracks and interesting interwoven melodic elements added after they developed a progressive edge. They merged their love of Yes and Rush, by combining elements of pure metal, classically inspired crescendos and interludes with jazz fusion like chops. Fates Warning has been largely responsible for the infusion of progressive thinking into heavy metal music, despite never attaining mainstream appeal, but a loyal following amongst prog fans.

Fates Warning now has 12 studio albums to their name, namely:
Night on Brocken (1984)
The Spectre Within (1985)
Awaken the Guardian (1986)
No Exit (1988)
Perfect Symmetry (1989)
Parallels (1991)
Inside Out (1994)
Chasing Time (compilation) (1995)
A Pleasant Shade of Gray (1997)
Still Life (live) (1998)
Disconnected (2000)
FWX (2004)
