Dream Theater have finally revealed their new drummer in the third episode of the youtube series that depicted their selection process. And the result says ‘Mike Mangini’. Mangini has played for Annihilator, Extreme, James LaBrie, and Steve Vai. He is a teacher at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and held five World’s Fastest Drummer world records. Apparently it boiled down to him v/s Marco Minnemann, who is also known for his extremely technical and fast playing in bands like Illogicist and Necrophagist.
