Prog metal gods Dream Theater posted a track from their upcoming album, A Dramatic Turn of Events to YouTube.
On the Backs of Angels gives us our first glance into the Mike Mangini era of Dream Theater, and I think it’s a sign of good things to come. Mangini assumed Mike Portnoy’s throne on drums, and maintained Portnoy’s style, while throwing in hints of his own flair. It works.
It’s not their heaviest song, but it sounds great, and it’s full of the technical wizardry that Dream Theater fans expect and love.
