Dream Theater formed in 1985 while guitarist John Petrucci and former drummer Mike Portnoy attended Berkley college of music in Massachusetts under the name Majesty. It was their second record under the name Dream Theater, Images and Words, that put these prog metal giants on the map. In 2010 Mike Portnoy left the band and they are about to release their first full album without his input simply called Dream Theater. Guitar legend/master/God John Petrucci is in the Hangar to crank some metal and tell us the latest from the world of Dream Theater.
This week we are going In the Vault with Ratt talking with a british heavy metal television show circa 1987.
Dream Theater are from New York and the Village Voice just rated their top 20 extreme metal records from New York. At number 1 was Anthrax’s Among The Living. IT’s hard to argue with that. This week’s Power Set features a few select tracks from their landmark 3rd album.
As long as a Big 4 band is being mentioned let’s talk about another one. Megadeth’s new album is called Super Collider and Dave Mustaine has been defending it as late. It’s not as bad as the title track suggests. This week’s Then & Now features a now that is a much heavier and more Megadeth sounding track.
Then this week’s Heavy Metal Movie and Soundtrack Recommendation comes from a movie that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger just before he became the Govenator. It was also a movie that featured the first new Guns N’ Roses song in 8 years, and their first song without Slash, Duff, or Sorum in the band called “Oh My God.” The movie is called End of Days.
All this plus 3 hours of classic metal each and every week inside Hangar 19.
