Cruel enough for me to feel no grief

Not too often have I heard a song in 1/8 time. The Root of All Evil is awesome. They picked the perfect beat to this hard hitting song.

The buildup to the main riff (and the riff itself) is absolutely amazing.

It has a similar scheme to 'This Dying Soul', but it's still Dream Theater.
