Dream Theater Have Brought In A Monster

(Gibson) Drummer and co-founder Mike Portnoy left Dream Theater in September 2010, but the prog-metal band are carrying on. Mike Mangini was recently named the new drummer for Dream Theater, after lengthy auditions. Dream Theater recently brought in Richard Chycki as their new producer/engineer, and Chycki has taken to his blog to post about his tasks.

Chycki says in his post that "Over the past weeks, I've been in the studio with long-time friend James LaBrie of Dream Theater, recording vocals for the band's new album that is quickly nearing completion. I gotta tell ya, new drummer Mike Mangini is a monster player on the album. I worked with him on LaBrie's solo album Elements of Persuasion in 2005 and he was frightening (in a good way!) in the studio back then."

Guitarist John Petrruci has told Artisan News Service, "Mangini is a permanent band member… We don't want to be known as the temporary Dream Theater, we want a member." more on this story
