The instrumental version of the new album is actually pretty good. Obviously, it's not old school DT with their awesome prog rock/metal combo, but it's pretty high quality prog metal still. I think a lot of it is due to the band itself also being a business. You have to churn out new albums, tour, etc., all under the same name, for years and years. I'm super curious to see what the future brings us because of all the new technology (well, old, but rather it's the quality and the availability of it) - high speed internet, audio and video streaming, DAWs, virtual instruments, modeling, and so on. You're no longer limited in the same way that older bands were. On the flip side there's also a massive influx of mediocre home recordings, but that's a necessary consequence. Probably the main problem is the lack of good sorting. Back in the day you had magazines, labels, tours, but nowadays I guess it's down to YouTube vids or something? The problem is that all these social media sites are like crappy graphitti walls, there's no sensible sorting or any kind of real depth to them. Old school forums like this one are more advanced than, say, reddit, which is hilarious, given that it's 2021 now.
