No.  Even aside from the fact that it is obvious from the video that he is recording an actual part of a song, the caption reads:
Quote
Here’s Mike in the studio recording a short proggy bit from the new album. Yes, that will be the album take and his reward will be some delicious BBQ chicken courtesy of chef JP!

Woops, I hadn't checked the new video yet when I posted this. I was talking about the first video. My bad xD

It sounds very cool! What surprised me is how melodic/proggy it is, since they’ve said they’re working on a heavy album. Looks like it’ll be a very balanced album between prog and heavy elements :hefdaddy

Yes, all that just from a single snippet :P
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Dream Theater fans...able to make a judgment on an album based entirely on 20 seconds or so of music. Still...cool little segment. I would also like chicken thighs please.

Indeed! of course to make assumptions about this clip is like thinking Black Clouds was ballad heavy by hearing the "Could this be the end" snippet in the little snippet that was released before the album, but it sounds like they concentrated on melody as you said and didn't for a chugga chugga wankfest. Sounds cool!

I really really hope there's a version of the album with a little making of DT14 docu.

Tbh that little proggy excerpt really sounds more like something I'd expect from a JR solo album or LTE. Has me kind of intrigued for the new album

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. I love JR's solo albums and LTE so that's a good sign.

The clip does remind me of Rhythm of Time, and then leads into a variation of The Simpsons theme.

What I enjoyed about the clip...

It sounds amazing, it has that Inside Out record label feel to it. Meaning Inside Out lets their artists have full control and feel of their sound.

I felt, Since DT signed to RoadRunner they were appealing to that crowd. I feel DT belongs on Inside Out label now.

I don't know how they can be so proud of winning with them odds. - Little Big Man

To be honest it sounds like the style of Dream Theater that I'm not into as much. I was hoping for something more raw and heavy but at the same time almost every Dream Theater song has moments that I'm not into but I like the overall product. Either way it actually makes me more excited than I was just because it's great to hear something.

I wonder if we're gonna get updates from the studio at a fixed rate (like one per week) or if it's gonna be random. I already can't wait for the next one  :metal

I love how Dream Theater posts new videos after I ask innocent questions. I better start doing it more often.  :lol
With that said, what comes next typically? Bass?

How does JP find the time to be so great at so many things:  Guitar/Musician.  Master Chef.  Dad.  Gym.  Laundry.

What a great role model.

who was playing the drums while Mangini and JP was talking? Or was that an audio of recorded drums?

It’s what he’s already recorded. It’s better to listen to that to count you in, instead of just a metronome count, especially if you’re tracking a part that’s like right in the middle of a musical section.
