Dream Theater Distance Over Time 180g Vinyl 2LP
In June 2018, Grammy-nominated progressive metal titans Dream Theater secluded themselves in a private location in upstate New York to begin writing for a new record. While spending the summer living together in the property's adjacent residence, the band spent their days and nights crafting the music that would make up their fourteenth album, Distance Over Time in the ‘Yonderbarn'; a beautiful and spacious barn that had been meticulously transformed into a state-of-the art film and recording studio.
Following an intense and extremely productive period of group writing sessions and wanting to retain the magic that was captured in this scenic and inspiring location, the band decided to record the album in the very room they had all convened to write together in for the first time. The return to roots collection finds Dream Theater upholding their unique signature of combining metallic aggression and progressive scope yet putting it in a frame of tighter and more organic songwriting.
"As a producer, my goal was to try and create the best-sounding Dream Theater record we've ever made so that listeners can just be enveloped in the music," explains the band's John Petrucci. "I really wanted this recording to truly reflect the spirit, joy and passion that went into making the album and for people to walk away feeling some of the organic nature, personality and raw energy that the band captured while together in the studio. For me, I think it accomplishes that and I hope that other people will feel the same way."
Distance Over Time was produced by John Petrucci, mixed by Ben Grosse, mastered by Tom Baker, and is adorned with artwork by long-time cover collaborator Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour).
