Dream Theater - New Album Cover And Tracklist Unveiled


The suspense is over, Dream Theater fans. The progressive metal group has finally revealed the images and words for their self-titled upcoming new album. The cover art and tracklist are now available below for you to enjoy and speculate about. And so it begins. Now all we have to do is wait for the new music to arrive. The official release date of the album is September 24th on Roadrunner.

The nine-track disc was recorded at Cove City Studio in Glen Cove, Long Island, with guitarist Petrucci producing and Richard Chycki engineering and mixing.

In January, Petrucci said of Mangini's work: "When people hear the drumming on this album, they're gonna be pretty freaked out. On the last album, he did a great job, but he wasn't there for the writing process and he was interpreting drum parts that I had programmed. Even though he used his creativity, of course, to change them up and do his thing, I feel like now he's just Mike Mangini unleashed. It's all him. It's all his creativity, all his decisions and ideas and man, the guy's an animal."





The tracklist for Dream Theater:

01. False Awakening Suite
i. Sleep Paralysis
ii. Night Terrors
iii. Lucid Dream
02. The Enemy Inside
03. The Looking Glass
04. Enigma Machine
05. The Bigger Picture
06. Behind The Veil
07. Surrender To Reason
08. Along For The Ride
09. Illumination Theory
i. Paradoxe de la Lumière Noire
ii. Live, Die, Kill
iii. The Embracing Circle
iv. The Pursuit Of Truth
v. Surrender, Trust & Passion

Btw the first seven Irton Maiden covers are all great, and even though Somewhere In Time is by far their wekest of the first sevven it's art work is greati. However when the Maiden covers became crap, just look at the last couple of disasters, the music was also crap.

They've certainly become very by the numbers. And Dance of Death artwork was universally hated by everyone.

The cover of Somewhere in Time is their best. There are so many clever references to be found there, some of them not so obvious. Too bad that the new re-issues are such low quality when it comes to covers.

So, they chose Mike because he was one of the only drummers who played their music in the audition without any personal interpretation or new ideas, now they want to "unleash" him. If they wanted the creativity they should have gone with Donati.


Creativity isn't one of Dream Theater's strong points.


A bit of a pretentious claim here.



how is claiming that creativity isn't Dream Theater's strong point a pretentious claim? To be honest they haven't been creative for a long long long time. What they do they do well, but creative it hasn't been for ages.


Fucking righteous Marcel

Worst Dream Theater cover art to this day, I mean, how cheap they are, they did not have money to afford an artist? I mean, even new bands with terrible music have covers by Ed Repka or Travis Smith...
Well, it's a huge step, at least they are not using other band's cover art to make their own hoping we won't notice the difference... oh wait...

Still, their last album was a snorefest experience, it was quite hard for me to listen it without falling asleep, which kinda hurts me considering I used to enjoy this band a lot:

Well, I hope this will be at least something average, but, who knows?

So you're saying that you didn't like "Black Clouds"? In my opinion a good DT album

From that one I can save the first, fifth and most part of the last song, got tired of the full listens pretty quickly. And three songs is half a record, so it's not that bad

Well Wither and A Rite of Passage are indeed the weakest songs. But I can understand that you don't like "The Best of Times" . The Count of Tuscany of the otherhand is a solid modern DT song in my opinion. And after hearing there is a new "Epic" (long) song, I can't wait to hear what it's going to be like

I'll be honest, I don't get why people are hating this much on the cover art.

The album is titled "Dream Theater." That's exactly what this cover art shows me. I look at this, and I think "Dream Theater."
It's simple, yes, but isn't that the point.
There's nothing fancy going on here. It's just "Dream Theater."
