^ Hey man, now that Portnoy's not around they're not pushing to be heavier and more melodic!

My judgments are reserved until we actually hear some finished tracks.

Man that Roadrunner "doco" was awesome. Really rooting for Mangini but you never know. He just seems to have so much enthusiasm for the part. I loved it when it said, he doesnt like word "gig", serious passion there.

Roddy as expected, is one of those drummers that can prepare anything, but doesn't really have a brain that is wired for proggy stuff like this on the fly, like Virgil and Marco do.

Minneman definitely crushed everyone there. Didn't know he was that tall though, that wing span is terrifying, dude looks goofy as hell

Highly impressed with both Marco and Mike - I'm not terribly familiar with the other guys so it'll be interesting to see how they stack up later in the week.

I'm quite disappointed about Virgil. I thought he would be much more precise. Maybe he just overjittered it. Marco is my favourite so far. To be honest, I don't like Mangini that much, his extreme excitement felt too pesky for me. It's funny to rate them based on 2 minute long clips, but whatever.

Virgil: Impressed the mess out of me! No wonder he's "special." That man is ridiculous!

Marco: I loved his enthusiam and his jamming was good, but it reminded me of Portnoy actually and since when did he play in Necrophagist!?!? Besides that he was ridiculous!

Derek Roddy: Impressed me with his blast beats but everything else I didn't feel like hit fitted in with the band. But he still a great drummer though!

Thomas Lang: Was fun to watch, I felt like he could be in Dream Theater and I enjoyed him.

But I would have to say by looking at the video and them mentioning Mike over again...I would really say it's him. Due to other things in the current world as well. With him canceling all his lessons and etc.

Have a question about The Gospel or prayer request, PM me. Happy to help and God Bless!

Plus, if this were a planned out and well made film, it would make sense to introduce the winner at the beginning, and set it up so you're rooting for them the whole time. Seems they're doing this for Mangini here.

Derek seemed really personable, and his speed is unquestionable but he didn't seem to suit the intricate, proggy style.

Thomas - monster technique and groove but shot himself in the foot via interpretation rather than imitation for the "canonical" songs. Can't fault his playing feel however....

Marco =/= Portnoy when the situation called for it, and clearly stamped his own authority on other parts without being quite as eager to fit in as Mike who sorta reminded me of an over-enthusiastic puppy. Lovely guy ofc and they're both tremendous musicians....

Want the last episode NAOW!!

Marco: Yeah. I think I could agree with that and I must say his a monster though. But did he really play in Necrophagist?!

Indeed I want to see it noaw!!!!

So I wonder now who is drummer that gets James "best by far" comment?

I agree with you on that. There's so much more to the 3 songs they had them play, let alone the jamming and new riffs, that it seems very difficult to get a real grasp on how they compare to one another aside from saying that they're all monster to begin with. But then again, the reality is that it's the members of DT rating them based on the whole audition, not us on 2 minute clips, so there's that whole thing

Minneman was unreal awesome. Right now, I would be happy with either him or Mike M. I think the feel of the jams I might have slightly preferred Mike's vibe with the rest of the band, but both..absolutely awesome.

I can say I wouldn't want to be the guy making these choices. Donati was impressive to watch, the fact he plays with the traditional grip blew my mind.

That said I pity the drummers a bit, as a bassist I have joined bands with some tunes, and what few recordings they had I was welcome to step over. To me not being able to reinterpret is an issue, and although I understand it , unless I am playing to learn something for techniques sake I am prone to reinterpretting also.

Marcos mannerisms and the sort of awkwardness to his movements is fun to watch.

Also who else is keeping track, admit it... We have heard Myung speak 2x so far

Mike seemed kinda vanilla to me.
Virgil was impressive but i didnt think he fit
Marco i really liked
Thmas Lang was a monster though, he was my fave this round.

i wish i actually liked DT hahahaha...this has been really entertaining and professionally done. DT are such classy guys and great musicians, even though im no fan i have all the respect in the world for them.
