There are instances of metal in the album, yes. There are also instances where it steps outside the realm of metal.
So you're saying Dream Theater isn't metal because they have one or two slow songs on an album? Don't most metal bands have one or two songs on their albums like Wait for Sleep that might be outside the realm of metal?
