Saw the video! Nothing new announced, don't worry. The drummers faces were shown, I can't recognise most of them. Basically just the band talking and someone narrating. Nothing too interesting, but very cool to watch, and the countdown was fun :D

Oh man, I hope this isn't a promotional video for the announcement. You know, in American deep-bass announcer style: "GET READY FOR A DEEP VIEW INTO THE AUDITION PROCESS OF THE MOST NOTORIOUS PROG METAL...."

It was but it was cool.  I need to see more videos of the process now.

its not letting me watch the vid... I subscribe but it just shows me a black screen
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

It almost looks like one of the songs played on the auditions was The Count of Tuscany.

Yes.  And I'm genuinely shocked.


Good video, by the way.  But I was cracking up watching it and thinking about rumborak's post.  @rumby for totally calling that one:

Haha, I can only imagine. Metropolis Part 3: The Spirit Carries On.

In which Nicholas and the hypnotherapist are reincarnated as the Count of Tuscany and his BRUTHAAAA.
Yeah, I have no idea what the cakeless person in that analogy is meant to be eating. If he's got some sort of cake substitute, it should really have been worked into the narrative at some point. As it stands, the options are:

  • Hoard a cake just to stare blankly into its doughy edifice.
  • Make futile chewing motions with your mouth while starving to death.

all bets could possibly be off?  Although given all the leaks that now appear to have actually been pretty accurate.  I am willing to believe its Mangini for sure.

Well the video itself was a bit cheesy and if we were only waiting to hear the announcement so RR could make this really bombastic video about the process, then I'm a bit peeved that we had to wait so long. That being said I'm incredibly excited to see some footage and get one step closer to finding out who it is!

However, wtf?  Priester did actually audition?  HUH?  (I'm taking your word for it guys, I didn't recognize most of the people outside of Minnemann, Lang, Wildoer, and Donati)

I liked it. I knew it wasn't going to be anything huge to begin with, so I didn't get too excited. I just took the video for what it was, and it was good to see the guys looking happy and to see all the drummers.

Mangini is the one who threw his sticks in the air.

So is this going to be a full on doc?  Seems WAY to produced for a 3min promo clip for YouTube.  Very well done.

I am mostly shocked about Derek Roddy. I didn't imagine he could be one of the candidates, mostly because he is more extreme metal oriented. He is a great drummer, it will be interesting to see him play some DT songs.

Looks like they will probably keep leaking out videos over the next few days/weeks.  More and more information on the process.  This could take us right up to the release of the new album possibly.
