2016 Preview: Dream Theater
Tales to astonish: prog-metallers unleash their ambitious new concept album and show.
Dream Theater release a concept album on January 29.
It’s called The Astonishing, but is actually more than a conceptual record, as guitarist John Petrucci explains: “When we decided to go with a concept, it was agreed that it should not only be an album, but also a show. And that’s what we’ve done.”
Petrucci, who produced the album, was solely responsible for developing the storyline, which he describes as being retro-futuristic.
