    I'm going to see Dream Theater for the first time next year because they just announced their first ever show in my country!

    Hmmm 4 dates in france, how lucky :D

    I like the new single but I do agree too with becometheknight's review on youtube, for diehard long time fans it sounds like modern DT doing DT stuff, and some parts of the song sound like easter eggs to previous songs...And that's not what we expect.

    On the pro side, the sound is great and I really am touched by the last third of the song, from composition to singing melody, it's way fresher.

    Can't wait to listen to this album, the first people talking about it are saying it's gonna be a good one :)

    Yeah, looks pretty weird for sure. But I guess it's convenient if there's hihats on both sides for example...

    I have also never seen that and looks like it's not sold anywhere or is this some popular pedal that anyone plays?

    That is the one that Will Calhoun (Living Colour) uses. I think they are an Aussie company and you buy them direct.

    It'll be interesting to see what Petrucci does with the extra range. When he started using a 7-string, a flood of interesting Dream Theater songs followed that thoughtfully utilized the extra range. It genuinely expanded his playing.

    This guitar has been rumoured for, what, five years? Music Man had R&D to do during that time, but it might've taken that long for Petrucci to experiment with an 8-string to see how he could make use of one.

    Yup, my thoughts exactly.

    Yep, and I'm sure no matter what it is the crew here will fill 50 pages with how it is not as good as earlier material x :lol:

    The one thing Petrucci has said about it is that he wouldn't seriously play or try to write with an 8 string until he had the production prototype model in the studio to write with like what he did with his first 7 string. DT was almost always in the Write/Release/Tour cycle that I'd bet while EBMM was making prototypes they didn't really have enough of John's time to lock it down until Covid hit which freed John up to do a bunch of things as we saw with LTE3 and his solo album.

    Premiering right now:



    Hmm, interesting. Pretty straight forward song, but that main melody / post chorus thing caught my attention. It has a kind of James Bond movie theme vibe to it. JP's solo was my favorite part of the song though.

    Not to sound too snobby, but I'm not really wowed by these new songs. Kinda getting ADTOE vibes from this album.

    I dug that track a lot more than the Alien one. Also, Petrucci's solo is totally bad ass.
