Dream Theater - New Video Online


Another video premiere today. Dream Theater is currently touring in Europe and the progressive metallers are bringing you a brand new video for the track "The Looking Glass" from their 2013 self-titled album. You can watch the video directed by Ramon Boutviseth at this location now.

Guitarist John Petrucci said about the song: "Definitely a tip of the hat to Rush. We're such fans—they've been a huge influence on us, and we continue to admire and look up to them. One of the great things about them is how they write really uplifting songs with positive messages, but they always sound cool...'The Spirit Of Radio,' 'Limelight'—those are big, big songs with big arena-rock riffs in a major key. Even 'Free Will' has that. The songs aren't dark, but they're tough. It's really hard to write something that can cut both ways like that, but that was my goal. 'The Looking Glass' has a few different stylistic changes: There's the Rush arena-rock major riff, but the verses are tricky as far as time signatures, and the style is a little darker. The pre-choruses are very pretty and flowing—they're in half-time—and the choruses open up and get really hooky. From verse to pre-chorus to chorus to riff, you've got a lot of musical styles, and that helps to keep things interesting."

You can still watch the video for "The Enemy Inside" over here as well.

Tbh, i dont see point in most music videos...either record live song to show how the band perform for real, or come up with hell of a story accompanied by the music...but most "stories" in videos are dull and mixing studio sound with bands playing? what's the point...?
