Mike Portnoy trolls the interwebz

A troll guy posted on some Dream Theater forums about a certain DT song (from their latest album) which is strikingly similar to a song from Christian band Red. Sorry, I stopped paying attention the second I heard the word ‘Chrsitian.’

You can judge for yourself here:

Red – Feed The Machine

Dream Theater – Build Me, Break Me Down

Geez, I wonder if Mike Portnoy had anything to say on the matter…

Check out the first song on JP ‘s fav album of the year…. WOW, the arrangement and orchestration sounds awfully familiar!! Surely it must be an intentional “nugget” for the fans… It couldn’t possibly be blatant formula plagiarism now could it…??

I just have to laugh…. : )

Portnoy has class, yo. Very subtle forum diss. Major troll points for this one, Mikey.


Mike’s heart will go on… and on

Mike Portnoy

Besides his heart, Mike Portnoy’s drama with Dream Theater is also going on and on and on. Even before you click on the link with the interview, let’s play a guessing game: Did he mention he’s sad because the band continued without him? Did he say he hopes to someday reunite with his former bandmates? Did he blame metal blogs for making fun of him? And did he give people more fuel for their fire when he said his heart is broken?

Yes, yes, yes and god why did he have to say it, but yes. Read the interview here, and make the jump to hear a special song relating to Mike Portnoy’s current predicament.


Mike Portnoy and Corey Taylor roll on the set

Prom Queen

…bitch about the bands that made them big, and inject. Mic check mic check yoyoyoyo. Drum wizard and internet drama queen Mike Portnoy will meet his match in another internet drama queen, Corey Taylor, for a special one-off performance of Stone Sour at Rock in Rio festival September 24. We’re pretty sure there’s enough tension between those two and their (former) bands that if it turned sexual, the entire place might turn gay, so beware those of you who plan on going!

Anyway, a few more details: apparently, band’s regular drummer is expecting a child on the same day, and it’s not like Mike Portnoy has much work to do anyway, so he’ll fill in for Roy Mayorga. Nice for him.


Weak Recap: Overdose impossible

It’s not possible to overdose on metal. That is a fact but it’s a class a drug which turns you into a junkie quite fast. You started with weak drugs like alcohol, cannabis or Slipknot but after a while you can only get high on cocaine, Cannibal Corpse, the heavy shit.

And we here at Dose of Metal are your dealers. We don’t even charge you for your daily dose of metal. We love this drug so much that we’re giving it away for fucking free. It’s impossible to overdose, so you might as well get high all day, everyday.

We have been dealing out metal for a full year now and we won’t stop until the whole world is addicted because, let’s face it, there is nothing better. For a little taste of our product, make the jump where I talk my fellow dealers about the past week and our greatest deals.


Mike Portnoy talks about 9/11

Mike Portnoy is a man of many talents. He plays drums, he plays.. Well, that’s it, really. So maybe I’m exaggerating, but still, check out what he has to say about September 11. You know, cause September 11 is right around the corner, and it will be its 10th anniversary, so we just have to hear what ever goddamn musician has to say about that tragedy.

“Dream Theater was working in NYC at the time mixing our album ‘Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence’ and I would’ve been driving in that afternoon for our session. But as the events of the morning unfolded, I found myself glued to the TV in disbelief as to what I was witnessing. It was all too surreal. I felt like I was watching a Will Smith Hollywood film. It couldn’t possibly be really happening.

Read full interview here.

Woah, racist alert. So no matter what, if a building is up in flames, a black man has to be behind it, even if that black man happens to be an A-list movie star. Wow. I am speechless, Mike. Really?

I keed, I keed, he’s obviously referencing either ‘Independence Day,’ a movie about spaceships destroying major cities (which ironically is more believable than some of the 9/11 conspiracies, but let’s not go there… yet), or ‘Wild Wild West,’ such a huge bomb of a movie, it could literally take a few buildings down.

On the reals though, I know 9/11 is nothing to laugh at, but neither is South Park. Yet millions of people laugh at that crap show all the time…

But seriously,  I hope I haven’t offended anyone. We get a lot of traffic from New York so, in case you were offended, I sincerely apologize on behalf of my sober self.
