Prog metal icons Dream Theater have released a lyric video for their brand new single “The Enemy Inside”, which comes from their upcoming self-titled album (out September 24th via Roadrunner Records). The song is definitely focused on the heavier aspects of the band although it features the signature melodic intricacies that fans have come to know and love.
The video itself leaves a lot to be desired. While simple lyric videos can be a bit dull, it’s also pretty easy to do something that detracts from the music. In this case, watching a guy with a shaved head run around, nearly puking from exhaustion, is distracting and, ultimately, takes away from the music. I recommend hitting ‘Play’ but then leaving the music on as background noise.
Dream Theater is available for pre-order on iTunes.
