Am I the only one who thinks Marco Minneman looks like Dirk Nowitzki?
No


What if all 7 are the new drummers?
That would be awesome. Seven drummers, seven songs. One guy gets to tour.


Although they left out the audition tape from that Beiber kid for some reason....

I'm not necessarily butthurt about it, but I am kind of disappointed they tried to pull a VH1 special out of this. They're exploiting it to the max.
Yeah, how dare they have a bit of fun and publicise the band in the process? DAMN THEM!
What I'm trying to say is: I don't give a damn who the new drummer is, I just want the album.

After watching the trailer a few times, I wish JLB had his long hair while they were shooting the documentary.

I wonder if Opeth will have this many people on their forums during the lead up to announcing the new keyboard player?

We'll see how it turns out.  Some Kind of Monster, in spite of the ego behind it, is one of the most brutally honest things anyone's ever put out about themselves to the media, which makes it great.  I don't expect the same level of emotional depth and conflict here, but it can work and be great if it's open and honest instead of being an extended promo piece.

Yeah, the black and white part where they're talking about MP gives a glimpse into why they haven't said much about it. We will get to hear they're side at some point.



Also, maybe this has been mentioned, but would you like to see MP make an appearance at some point? So they could really make it a complete overall view from both sides of the whole situation?

just watched the facebook version.

what they said makes sense to me. they aren't looking for just a drummer, theyre looking for some who "fits", and to me that's Mangini. Berklee alumni, like the other guys in DT, and they've even worked with him before, unlike Lang. And he's a similar age, which helps.

its easy to forget its more than just the drumming.
There is so little respek left in the world, that if you look it up in the dictionary, you'll find that it has been taken out.

Uncle Ricky wants YOU to show some respek

So?  So long as the music doesn't suffer (in the sense of them "selling out" to gain more popularity), it's all good.

Some Kind of Monster really just showed how washed up Metallica was as a group. It really served no other purpose than that. I hope DT's documentary doesn't show this kind of thing.

Why would you think that?  RR has been promoting them like crazy since they got them, and nothing DT has done since has sounded like a sell out attempt to gain more popularity.  Remember that DT has had catchy songs (by prog metal standards) on almost every record that could have been somewhat popular in the mainstream had they been properly promoted, so don't freak out when one or two songs on the new album have that feel.

Some of these guys are gonna need bigger kits.

Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing a smaller kit. I like it when drummers focus on the essentials. As with many other things, music thrives on limitation.

Quote from: Random guy @ MP forums
I am "friends" with 5 of the 7 drummers who auditions on FaceBook (and yes it is really them, promise) and told them I saw the vid and wished them the best of luck. About 5 minutes after I posted, Marco Minnemann actually responded telling me that he IS NOT the drummer of DT. But he's working with JR on the Musical Minds Meld thing, and he also mentioned that he's working on something with JR and JP...

If this is true, it will be interesting to hear from a MM/JP/JR collaboration! Maybe call Tony Levin on the bass and have fun again!

as a drummer myself, this comment urks me. "essential" is a subjective word at best, especially when it comes to music. besides, DT is about being over the top, is in not? if you want a 4 piece kit treatment go listen to nirvana.

regardless, anyone who says it's possible to make a 3 piece kit sound like 50 has never touched a drumstick in their life.

U mad?
Jesus Christ himself* comes down amidst a choir of 2 billion angels singing Handel's Hallelujah chorus. As KrotchRaut shred randomly on guitars made of dragon bones using picks made from God's kidney stones, Jesus heals a blind woman who promptly gives birth onstage to a creation of pure light.

*Yes, Jesus Christ himself. Nothing less will do.

And anybody who claims prog needs to be played with a 50-piece drum kit has never listened to good prog.
IMHO, MP had a tendency to just "work" the big kit the easy way, with fills that just seemed to try to execute as many different pieces as possible. Again, this is my personal opinion, but I think art has a tendency to lose its focus if it is too unconstrained.

but DT isn't just prog. they have a lot of elements that IMO require a lot of different percussive sounds. i agree with the MP comment, especially as of late, but guys like bobby jarzombek are creative as hell with kits of a large size. sure they could do cool stuff on smaller kits, but i come to DT to be blown away in ALL facets...

I know a lot of people don't like this whole "reality search" kind of thing for the new drummer, but I for one am so excited. I know when I'm watching it I'm gonna be rooting for specific people and it'll be a blast to hear seven amazing drummer's takes on DT songs. Cannot wait for this!

I must admit The whole "reality charade" does have me excited.  I think it is a great ploy. And, by the amount of replies on facebook(1 ever 10-13 sec)  on the subject, I would say DT/RR  are doing things right.  This is a big reveal, as evidenced by the interwebz buzz since MP's departure.  I am jazzed about the whole thing.
