ABOUT DREAM THEATER
Dream Theater has steadily achieved a startlingly sublime synthesis of soaring and unmistakable melody, progressive instrumentation and aggressive heaviness unrivaled within hard rock music. They refashioned a way forward from the molten hot iron of their own internal transition to create the career-defining album A Dramatic Turn of Events. It’s an evocative collection of fully-realized soundscapes that stands alongside landmark Dream Theater albums like Images and Words and Scenes from a Memory with an even greater prestige, ambition and cunning.
“I’m ecstatic with the way the album came out,” proclaims James LaBrie, whose lead vocals are instantly recognizable as one of the strongest elements of the well-established Dream Theater sound. “It’s the album we had to make.”
It is an album born out of transition, crafted with studied persistence and possessed by newfound freedom and free-flowing invigoration. A Dramatic Turn of Events strikes the perfect balance between Dream Theater’s intimate history with all that is heavy, progressive and melodic with each element fully realized. Longtime fans of the band intrigued by the speediness of the notes on display from Dream Theater have much to study on the new album, while fans of melodic hooks will find equal pleasure within the songs.
A Dramatic Turn of Events is the perfect representation of Dream Theater for 2011 and beyond. There are the progressive elements, deeply serious lyrical topics, strong ballads, some wacky fun and no shortage of heaviness. For more information, please visit http://www.dreamtheater.net
