New Dream Theater track

Trivium – check. Killswitch Engage – check. Right so, Dream Theater are the next band to drop a new tune for the God of War III soundtrack. The track, which can be heard below, is ‘Raw Dog’.

It’s an instrumental track and is what you’d mostly expect from a Dream Theater track – that meant in the nicest way possible. It’s a flurry of countless notes and inimitable intricacy. Of course, it’s inescapably heavy and for its seven minute duration there’s no give in its trajectory. Unsurprisingly, the shining light is John Petrucci, whose guitar work and soloing here is shimmering.

God Of War III is out later this month, and two more tracks are expected from Opeth and Taking Dawn.
