Progressive rock masters Dream Theater, featuring drum luminary Mike Portnoy, return in full force with their ninth studio album 'Systematic Chaos'.
It is the group's debut for their new record company Roadrunner. The album was produced by Mike Portnoy and John Petrucci, and engineered by Paul Northfield.
The album features heavy riffs, soaring melodies, intricate arrangements and - as usual - very impressive drum works by the Chop Meister himself.
Dream Theater appease their loyal fans but also reach out to all rock fans with hook-laden songs like Constant Motion, Forsaken, and The Dark Eternal Night.
'Systematic Chaos' is another masterpiece, and a must-have for fans of progressive rock.
The special edition features the entire album mixed in 5.1 surround sound, and includes a bonus dvd with 'Chaos in Progress - The Making of Systematic Chaos', a 90-minute documentary directed by Mike Portnoy.
