Dream Theater: Snippet Of Another New Song Available
According to Blabbermouth.net, "A Dramatic Turn Of Events", the much-anticipated album from progressive metal giants Dream Theater, which marks new drummer Mike Mangini's recorded debut, will be released on September 13 via Roadrunner Records. A 70-second snippet of the song "Far From Heaven", which will appear on "A Dramatic Turn Of Events", can be streamed below. In a new interview with Music Radar, Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci stated about "Far From Heaven", "This is James' [LaBrie, vocals] centerpiece, for sure. There is bass on the track, along with a string section, but for the most part it was written as a piano/vocal." "Jordan [Rudess, keyboards] and I intended it to be a ballad, but it would also be the Part 1 for the next song, 'Breaking All Illusions'. In fact, in 'Breaking All Illusions', we use the themes that are in 'Far From Heaven'. Doing that isn't new to Dream Theater." "For a few days James, Jordan and I worked on the vocal melodies. James had some very strong ideas, which were great. He recorded his parts up in Canada with Rich Chycki. We never did anything like that, where I as a producer wasn't present when the vocals were being sung, so it was a bit of an experiment." "I was blown away when I heard what they had done, not only by the vocal sound but the emotional quality that James put into it. He has such a beautifully unique voice. The way that Andy Wallace mixed it, putting James right up front, gives me shivers." The "A Dramatic Turn Of Events" deluxe collector's edition exclusive pre-order box set includes the following:
