  • Dream Theater Album Coming Soon

    Posted on February 16th, 2009 Shawn No comments

    Since many of our readers are dedicated Rock Band and Guitar Hero players, I figured I’d highlight one of the most difficult bands in the games, Dream Theater.  I’ve been following DT since the early 90’s and seen them live close to a dozen times.  One of the most technical Prog Rock bands of all time, they are coming with some new music soon.

    We learned this from our subscription to RoadRunner Records mailing list.  Below is the details from the article.  One can only hope the new album will mean more DLC for Rock Band.  Since DT is featured on GH:WT, Rock Band 2, and Rock Band downloadable content, I would bet that we’d see some (if not all) of the new album make it into the game.  Although, with DT’s crazy use of time signatures, it would take a skilled composer to recreate their songs in the game.

    For me, I want to see their earlier works from Images & Dreams and Awake, in the game.

    Prog Metal veterans Dream Theater are currently wrapping up work on their tenth studio album. The band commenced work on the as-yet untitled album –their second for Roadrunner Records, following up 2007’s Systematic Chaos—in October of last year.
    Drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci are once again producing the CD, while engineer Paul Northfield will mix the record. Roadrunner plans to release the album in early summer upon which the band will immediately embark on a world tour to support it.
