Mike Mangini As Dream Theater's Drummer

  1. What are your guy's thoughts on this?

    I think (after listening to the teaser for their new album) that it's given a new fresh feel to their sound but I'll always love Portnoy's DT sound.

    However, I was getting a bit annoyed that he wasn't coming up with 'new' drum tracks, sort of just taking all of his other tracks and mish-mashing them together. BUT who can blame him, he has played with the same band for 25 years :eek:

    I think it was a good thing for Dream Theater, but the drums will always seem 'strange' to me from now on. :)

    PS: I'm a drummer too :D
  2. Mike Portnoy was more than half of the reason for listening to Dream Theater, at least for me. It just doesn't feel like the same band without him.
