A progressive metal band, strong tastes are reflected in Dream Theater music videos. The band itself consists of John Myung, John Petrucci, James LaBrie, Jordan Rudess, and Mike Mangini, calling Boston, Massachusetts their place of origin. To this date they have released fourteen albums with Distance over Time taking that fourteenth spot.
Not many go for animation, but in their third single off the album, “Paralyzed” featured full animation, as well as hints of Japanese influence. The whole video screams dystopian, with city scenes pulled straight out of Blade Runner (1982) or Blade Runner 2049 (2017). Oh and did we forget to mention A.I.?
The music itself begins with deep guitar and drums that will hammer at your soul before the first lyric rings. We also recommend you keep watching because later in the piece is a guitar solo that feels too right.
Between the music and breath taking visuals you’re in for a treat that will leave your heart racing. Go give it a watch.
Oh and did we mention they’re touring? Check these guys out live here! You can thank us later.
