'A Dramatic Turn Of Events' is the title of the new much anticipated and discussed studio album by Progressive Metal past-masters Dream Theater, due for release on Roadrunner Records, September 12th 2011 – the album marks the band's first release since the departure of long-serving original drummer Mike Portnoy…
Introducing fans and the rest of the prog-metal world to the new face of the band with new drummer Mike Mangini [at least they don't have to get used to a new name!] the record marks the release of the 12th album by the band in their 26 years strong career since their inception in 1985. (Mangini has previously provided backing for the likes of Steve Vai, Extreme, Annihilator and DT lead vocalist James LaBrie)
Having albums amongst their back catalogue that have gone on to thrive as key influences on the progressive and heavy metal scenes world over, the band – who are due to hit UK shores to headline Classic Rock's High Voltage festival in July – never fail to conjure high anticipation with every release, due to their trademark virtuostic musicianship and their characteristic conceptualized song format. So it's clear the upcoming release evokes the level of excitement to be expected yet with so much more intrigue than ever before due to a new drummer taking over at the beat controls!
