Both the titles and the art suggests that we're in for some dark stuff.

Interesting track titles!

LOVE the album artwork.

I do not dig JPs jacket. There I said it.

Please tell me that wonky picture is not the album cover. It looks like fan art, and that Majesty logo is so off shape.

.... I like it.

I guess "Along for the Ride". Also JP looks old in that pic and MM's hair looks kinda weird.

Tracks 3, 4, or 5 will likely be the Instrumental

My guess would be Enigma Machine. Only a guess though.

Got to admit, I'm not mad keen on any of it. Artwork or track titles. Not that you can tell much from them and I don't really know what I was expecting. None of it really appeals to me at all, though.

Songs will probably be good, mind.

The track titles...the album artwork...Damn!  :metal

I see they went for the ´Eagles´ look, though...

I like the idea, but that Majesty logo is just so wonky.

And I think it's silly to have a self titled album that doesn't even have the band name on it. If you're naming your album after your band, at least put the name of the band on the cover. A self titled defining album without your signature writing or even the correct logo on the front? Bleh.

Yeah, I would prefer it to have the band name.

I agree. Put this cover next to the ADTOE and it looks like it could be heavy. Heavy heavy (which I was hoping they were straying away from)

'Paradoxe de la Lumière Noire'. Seriously DT?

Also dislike the album cover, but hey.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

And the anticipation goes through the roof. Interesting that the opening and closing numbers have multiple parts. I think that Enigma Machine definitely sounds like an instrumental name. Also, didn't we already know that "The Enemy Inside" was coming? I think some lyrics were on one of those papers in the studio video.
Now I just want Summer to be over with already  :P

Enigma Machine sounds really good for an instrumental song!
Just wait and see, but I bet that it will be the instrumental song on this album.

See, I think these names actually sound more prog than heavy metal.

Yeah I have very good feelings about this so far.  I predict Enigma Machine as the instrumental.  Or Along for the Ride

I don't really like the cover.

Multi-part epics, nice!

The Enemy Inside reminds me of The Enemy Within by Rush.

OH AND THANKS RANDY FOR THE FACTS  :hat
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

Unless I'm very much mistaken, is that not the Brooklyn Bridge in the Majesty logo?

That might be the most fascinating group of track titles I've seen from our beloved band.  I'd love some "In the Presence of Enemies" type darkness throughout.  I was intrigued before today, I'm doubly intrigued now.
