Dream Theater Begin Sharing The Characters, Maps And More From Their New Double-Album


Dream Theater have been teasing some odd concepts in the lead-up to the release of their new album “The Astonishing” next year. As it turns out, the effort will reportedly be a double-album, with each half focusing on the futuristic tales of the ‘Ravenskill Rebel Militia‘ and the ‘Great Northern Empire Of The Americas‘. The rabbit hole gets pretty deep as they’ve launched a teaser site where characters, maps and more are being unveiled. Each rival faction has their head, with ‘Lord Nafaryus, Emperor and Head of the Realm, Heir to the Mantle of Makers’ leading the ‘Great Northern Empire Of The Americas‘, while the ‘Ravenskill Rebel Militia‘ is overseen by ‘Arhys, Son of Marhys.’

The Astonishing” should arrive some time early next year and will be performed live in full on this European/UK tour.
