Progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER are in the studio recording the follow-up to their Grammy-nominated album “A Dramatic Turn Of Events”. According to a new online post by the band’s guitarist, John Petrucci, “all vocals are done” and he is currently “cutting solos” for the CD, which is expected at the end of the summer via Roadrunner Records.
The official lyric video for the song “Falling Like The Fahrenheit” from American/German/Swedish symphonic metallers KAMELOT can be seen below. The track, which was released as a digital single on February 8, “combines everything what the band stands for: melody, epic and melancholy atmospheres, and the unique voice of the new singer Tommy Karevik,” according to a press release.
The “Falling Like The Fahrenheit” single features a special radio edit of the title track as well as the full album version.
