Dream Theater is back with more very-identifiably Dream Theater metal, this time with the new song "Invisible Monster". The song has some really cool, almost spooky melodies, and comes alongside a music video directed by William “Wombat” Felch.
"It was written after we'd written a bunch of material," said guitarist John Petrucci. "A lot of the music was super energetic and upbeat tempo-wise. Mike suggested we do something a little different though. So, we started working on a more mid-tempo song. The hook, riff, and melody changed so naturally.
"I equate it to 'Pull Me Under' back in the day where we’d just start playing, something would come out, and we’d be like, 'Whoa, that's cool'. There’s a serendipitous moment where it happens. Lyrically, it's about how anxiety plagues people. It's like there's an invisible monster beating you. You don't see it, but it's haunting you all of the time."
Dream Theater will release their new album A View From The Top Of The World on October 22. Pre-orders are available here.
