Or something like that. With a bunch of dudes wearing red robes and masks. That’s basically what the DT video for their new song “A Rite of Passage” depicts. The song comes off their upcoming album, “Black Coulds & Silver Linings” which I believe is their second one on Roadrunner Records.
The song sucks pretty bad, but the video is cool. John Petrucci is still rocking the steroid look and it seems at times he’s about to break his guitar in half. Rudess is barely in the video, so much that I thought they had kicked him out because I rarely heard any keyboard parts. It’s nice to see that such a (once) great band gets the all-star music video treatment, pity it’s for such a lame song.
