New dream theater song for download

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by reasonbass, Nov 1, 2003.


  1. I was checking out if there was any more info on the new album and discovered that they realeased a new song fromt he album. I guess this is going to be their single or something. I liked the song it was pretty straight foward as far as Dream theater stuff, but they go off at end in true DT fashion.

    F***ING AMAZING!:bassist:


    I love this song so much! It's so heavy... I know it's a bit simplistic when it comes to DT - except JP's solo - but it's nice to see them do something so freeking heavy like that! Maybe it's just all the anticipation talking, but this song rules IMO, and I will get the CD when it comes out!:bassist:

    Maybe its a response to Metallica's crap cd

    :D

    When something so great such as this happens, don't question, just enjoy it while it's there ;)

    On a side note, maybe Portnoy got his head out of his ass and realized Myung is actually important to DT?:D :bassist:

    I suppose they've had worse songs. They definitely have had better ones. The performance is decent enough, but the composition is nothing special really. The subtle keyboard arrangements in the bridges? ("checking in the view from the outside...") and just before the guitar solo are cool. The guitar solo, though, is probably the worst drivel I've heard coming from John Petrucci in quite a while.

    I've completely given up on DT these days. And I used to love them so dearly.

    This single track "As I am" wasn`t intended to be a pre release hit single or something like that.

    DT was trying to keep the album unheard till November 11th (release date). But apparently someone recorded this song with a crappy mic (from the soundboard I guess) and it began to spread through the web. It sounded terrible.

    So, Portnoy got really pissed off and they decided to show the "real" song. He posted that in his forum last week.

    And, about the track, I really like.
    Unfortunately, for all DT fans who enjoy them as a cult band, this will have a tremendous mainstream impact.

    At least, a lot of kids will discover that not all heavy metal solos are Wah-wah oriented.
     
  8. update.. I just got the new album...IT FRIGGIN ROCKS I haven't been this excited since....NEVER..lol...well maybe when i got my Mesa 400+,lol.

    Seriously, they have taken their playing to another level. And guess what? Myung is higher in the mix:bassist: ..The songs are definetly heavier and darker, so fans of their heavy stuff will wet their pants. I recomend anyone who is a fan to check it out.:D :p :bassist:
