Wanna know the track that Mike Portnoy believes best sums up Dream Theater’s forthcoming album?
Morley Seaver of CausticTruths.com recently spoke to drummer Mike Portnoy regarding the band’s songwriting process.
“I don't know if we've ever had one song that could really sum up what DREAM THEATER is about because there are so many sides to the band. I guess the big epic songs are always the ones that tend to show all of the different sides. So I guess if I could only play one person one song, if they had 25 minutes to spare, I'd play both parts of 'In The Presence Of Enemies' from the new record because that's really going to show the full spectrum. Usually the shorter songs, something like just 'Forsaken' or 'Constant Motion' isn't going to really give the big picture. It'll just give you a little taste of one side of what the band is.”
