It's fitting that Loudwire's 2013 March Metal Madness would slot Dio in the Devil Horn region. The band's classic 'Holy Diver' album meets up with Dream Theater's breakout release, 'Images and Words,' in this Round 1 matchup to determine the best metal album of all-time.
It's a new year and Dream Theater isn't wasting any time getting back to work. Guitarist John Petrucci has checked in online with a photo update, showing off the band's studio and suggesting that recording is about to commence with the caption, "Let the fun begin …"
Dream Theater have done their part, and will now wait for the editors to complete their work on a new upcoming live DVD that's expected to arrive in 2013. The group played Buenos Aires, Argentina last Sunday and Monday (Aug. 19 and 20) at Estadio Luna Park to provide the basis for the upcoming release.
If hard rocking guitar music is your thing, then get yourself to the 'Shred 'Til You're Dead' tour this summer. Dream Theater guitar virtuoso John Petrucci heads up the bill, which also features former Nevermore axeman Jeff Loomis and Animals as Leaders guitar slinger Tosin Abasi.
Former Dream Theater stick-man Mike Portnoy recently gave fans an inside look into his quarter-century career with the band and how, despite his exit, he is more than okay with being referred to as "Mike from Dream Theater."
At the 2012 Grammy Awards, millions of people tuned in to see Foo Fighters conquer the rock awards by winning five trophies during the ceremony. One of their five golden gramophones was for the Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance category -- as the band beat out fellow nominees Megadeth, Mastodon, Dream Theater and Sum 41.
As the 2012 Grammy Awards slowly become a spotlit memory, one of the most successful and featured winners of "music's biggest night" were Foo Fighters. With his band having captured five Grammy awards (only one less than pop star Adele), including Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance, frontman Dave Grohl revealed to MTV that he feels bad for beating out Dream Theater for that very award.
