Richard Chycki says he's currently mixing a DT live album
« on: November 04, 2017, 03:52:55 PM »
He says it here: https://youtu.be/YTvjy47rB1U?t=46s

The video is from October 18th, so I think it's safe to say the mix should be already finished by now. I wonder if it's a TA live audio release or something from the current tour :o
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

I remember that Jordan posted about the Budokan show of the IWAB tour was filmed, maybe it has something to do with that? Either way, this is great news :metal

Possibly so. Thats what I'm guessing it is. Maybe we'll get bonus tracks of DLPM and TLF

A CD of the current tour would be best, since those old songs sound so different now plus with the lowered tuning. Makes it kinda interesting. The Astonishing live would sound basically the same as the CD

Hell yeah!! I hope it's regarding the current tour with performances in various shows like DT's own Flight 666.

That would be awesome :metal

The only way a live release of The Astonishing makes any kind of sense is a video so all the amazing story visuals can be represented.  Having an audio-only release would be a real waste since it's exactly the same as the as the CD.

So here's hoping for an Astonishing LIVE Official Bootleg or an audio release of one of the current shows.

The Astonishing live wouldn't be like the studio. They have the live sound, and feel. Which is what I like to hear for a live release.

They should do a double package.

Disc 1: Best songs off The Astonishing (more digestible to the general audience, people who didn't sit down for 130 minutes for the album won't do it for a live version)

Disc 2: Images and Words 2017

To be fair, that's a limited release CD, not really available to anyone who wants to legally own it or legally listen to it. Theres just around 5000 people who can legally own it on CD.
There will be a reckoning.

Actually, I listen to it REALLY often :)  I've had to buy it twice to finally have it!!  But anyway a new live release will be great!

He posted a pic showing some of the video crew on his Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/jordanrudessofficial/photos/a.10151821986107989.1073741826.8717682988/10155084200912989/?type=3&theater). Petrucci also posted a pic and confirmed it was filmed for a TV broadcast in Japan (https://www.facebook.com/johnpetrucciFB/photos/a.133462500039104.42405.126844294034258/1627934420591897/?type=3&theater).

I'm curious how JLB's performance will come out. His singing was really rough this tour.

Depends on wether they'll pick a single show, or more shows. For example at my show in Milan he completely NAILED Breaking All Illusions, power and enunciation clarity for the whole song.

In Padova instead I think TDEN was awesome. MM was really hyped IMHO

I think I read that they record every show. If it's going to be a full blown CD release, then it probably makes sense to use the best performance of each song across multiple shows.

Also, since they play to a click now, I'm wondering if it's possible to lift different sections of songs from different shows, and combine them together to get the best result? Interesting, but perhaps too much work to make it happen.

Blind Guardian did that for their 2003 "Live" album (Live is actually the name of the album, it won the originality award  :D), they pieced together different instruments from different performances. So it could be done, especially if you play to a click.

That's cool. I suppose you could argue that it's cheating, but it's no different than doing several takes in the studio and putting the best bits together.

Just thinking about vocals in particular - I think I'd prefer this approach to heavy use of autotune or whatever to massage one single performance into shape.

Maybe Bosk knows something about this release and he's not telling us? He knew about TLF and DLPM for a while before this leg of the tour started :biggrin:

JP is on Eddie Trunk right now and he said they did not record any TA shows.  He said if you weren't there, you won't get to see it.
