I can't believe they really had Priester in the auditions.

YEAH! Changing a setting on a computer that takes two seconds is BULLSHIT!
It's bullshit because that application does not conform to the same security standards. Anything that makes you downgrade your security level in order to use is inherently poorly made.

To clarify: this is a complaint about the app, not DT or the video. The video was awesome and it was cool to see all the drummers. Even Priester.. lol

What were you guys waiting for? This is promo at its best. We'll get to see an indepth look at the auditions. We are incredibly lucky as fans!! They could have just said: "Our drummer is Mike Mangini, alright lets move on!" But no, they're allowing us to share these special moments they had when looking for a new drummer.

I've got to say: Never Enough. As usual.

I was with you until you touted Never Enough.

This but then again they know what's best for the band. I'll be watching these videos and rooting for Lang even though it's probably not him, I'm still hoping it is!

Alright, so I watched it. Not too impressed, it relies on this cliffhanger thing way too much. If there's a full documentary, I bet it's going to be found on the new album (or rather the special edition of it).

I hope they release videos of each drummer.  I love in the studio/jamming stuff.

It would be interesting if they did this, one a day/week eliminating a drummer each time, leading up to the eventual announcement of the new album's art, track listing and drummer. Then release the full documentary with an LE version of the album.

So, the video is named: Dream_Theater-Drummer_Doc_Trailer_v3

I guess there are other versions as well, since this is tagged _v3?

My favourite bit:

Some people being disappointed that they didn't reveal the name of the new drummer, on a day they weren't planning to announce the name of the new drummer.

Very good promo. And a full length feature on it! Looks really well directed.

Thanks, jdprsaga!  I didn't recognize anyone in the video and so I was putting together a master list like this based on everyone else's posts and I got the same list as you.

Well, at least this video inspired me to listen to TCOT again. :biggrin:

And despite what I said in the previous post, I quite liked it. I hope for a full documentary, but the style of the video... Borderline ridiculous. :lol

Yes.  And I'm genuinely shocked.

I have no idea what any of you expected. The album doesn't come out for months. If they just told us who the new drummer was, excitement would die off very quickly. This is a way to keep up excitement at least closer to their first show or when the album comes out. It's their first smart move in a very long time.

I took a screenshot in the moment where one of the drummers is holding a letter. I'm trying to figure out what it says:

"To The World's Greatest Drummers, welcome to the auditions! We are sorry we don't have a practice room. But we do have something for you  to practice on - and doing so well provides instant glorification, the [something] inside!

Please attack this drum with the mallet we've provided, just as you are going to do for real in the studio! :)
Best wishes to an audition that blows everyone away!"

This is probably a FAIL transcription, feel free to help me out....if you have nothing better to do, like me.

Man. I'm not so much into that "America's, err, DT's next top drummer" thing I have to say.

rumborka

I don't see it like that. I think it is a original and fun way for us to know who got the gig, rather than a simple press release mentionning 'X is our new drummer'

Dunno. I mean, the letter each drummer got when they arrived? "Welcome to the Dream Theater auditions?" That's taken straight from America's Next Top Model and all those other reality shows. And James sitting behind the mixing board saying "we'd like to welcome you at this point to the family". That's exactly Ryan Seacrest style. "Drummer X ...... you are through to the next round."

Dunno, just saying.

how strange
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Same reason excitement had already died off greatly before this video was announced.

I have no qualms with them stretching it out now, that's how they will maintain interest until the album comes out.
My only concern is that DT is joining in with other "illustrous" reality-TV bands like INXS etc.

They could have just told us who it was and so we could know and not have us strung along.  But now its clear, the reason for not hearing about anything was because they were filming a full on doc.  So they had to shoot and edit it.  I'm sure that's what the delay has been now.

Rumby makes a good point about the American Idol thing.  It does seem like all this shit was kinda played out for the camera.  I wonder if this was a road runner idea.  It seems like it was.  I dunno it gives me a bad feeling.

What is disappointing for me besides the whole reality-like atmosphere, is the lack of a date for the announcement.
"to find out exactly when and how the momentous announcement about the bandís new lineup will be made" was in the first announcement, yet we didn't get a date.
