With all the experimentation by great bands, maybe dream theater will come out with a deathcore album right?

You're all wrong!!!
They're changing their name to Kill a Cop, Rap Theater.
Labrie got dreads, Petrucci gave up guitar for bongo drums, and Myung will simply do air bass as the real thing is just so boring.
NOW THAT'S INNOVATION!!!!

if im not mistaken thats the most tracks on a dream theater album since metropolis, which was two parts... this could mean either they felt it was time to make a longer album, or to make shorter songs, which is not a good sign. its probably the first option though lol.

pretty pumped for this album, i wanna see how they deal with the portnoy shenanigans and if mangini suits them as well as mike did.
