Dream Theater sound again like old times with the first single from A Dramatic Turn of Events

Just as I have been skeptical of everything related to Dream Theater's new album over the past months, now I have to admit my mistake and recognize that the kings of progressive metal still have much to say in this new stage without Mike Portnoy. In fact, I find extremely ironic that you had to leave one of its pillars to return to sound like years ago that did not.

New Yorkers have presented 'On The Backs Of Angels', the subject will open in A Dramatic Turn of Events, as the first single from the album. With it, the quintet has shown that it is able to survive the march of the battery that served as one of its great creative weights, and also recover the essence purely progressive, without having to lose, had weakened to load metal heads his later works.

The theme is still quite heavy, especially when you start the machine, but the strength of the instruments is not imposed on the complex and varied structures that have always defined a Dream Theater. This is a subject that could have fit well in the first releases of the era Jordan Rudess, and that is certainly great news.

As expected, Mike Mangini is splendid in his debut with the sticks of this prestigious training, because we know that rides on technical. The rest of the team works to its usual level, and only a little squeak me some keyboard effects that seem out of tune. Otherwise, a school subject that anticipates a good feeling ahead of the A Dramatic Turn of Events.
