Dream Theater Channel Prog Metal in ‘Dream Theater’ – Premiere
Check out the veteran band’s 12th studio album
Dream Theater have helped carry the torch of modern progressive rock for nearly three decades. But their forthcoming 12th album represents the birth of a new era in the band’s career.
This self-titled LP, produced by guitarist John Petrucci, is their first to involve new drummer Mike Magnini in the creative process from the beginning. The album features a disparate blend of styles, from the doomy instrumental “Enigma Machine” to the symphonic-metal intro “False Awakening Suite” to the epic “Behind the Veil,” which morphs from moody atmospherics to a sing-along arena-rock chorus.
Dream TheaterÂ will be released on September 24th on Roadrunner Records in the U.S. In the meantime, check out an exclusive stream of the full LP.
