Black Jester  


For some reason, Italy has had a monopoly on neoclassical/progressive metal bands, and Black Jester was one such band, with a style heavily influenced by Dream Theater and Fates Warning, with some Yngwie Malmsteen-style theatrics thrown into the mix. Clinically a fine band, though at times the keyboards gave the band too much of a poppy feel. After disbanding in October of 1999, several members moved on to other bands, one of which is Moonlight Circus (link below).
