Bumblefoot/Mike Portnoy New Progressive Metal Supergroup

19 posts in this topic

Mike Portnoy is rumored to have recruited ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and former DREAM THEATER and current BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION keyboardist Derek Sherinian for his previously announced "progressive metal supergroup."

Although the former DREAM THEATER drummer has not yet confirmed Thal and Sherinian's involvement in the new project, he has been actively deleting comments on his official forum from fans who have concluded through various social-media posts that the pair are working with Portnoy in the freshly launched band.

Portnoy revealed the new project's existence in a March 1 post on his Facebook page. He shared a photo of himself in the studio and wrote in the accompanying caption: "Hmmmm....what have we here?? I'm in L.A. recording an album with something NEW... Sorry, this is all you're gonna get outta me on this for a while... More will be revealed at a later date... stay tuned! #ProgMetalSupergroup Coming soon..."

It could be a supergroup if it had a high caliber lead guitar player.

You don't consider Ron Thal a high calibre guitarist?

I know he is. Highly respected, admired, etc. I just don't like anything about the guy myself :(

Art of Anarchy are terrible, but this could have potential. I'm interested.

I hope this is a chance for Ron to try a little bit harder in terms of songwriting. Bumblefoot and progressive metal is an interesting combination, especially with Portnoy in between

Bumble never really went metal before, so this is a good way to show his Randy Rhoads skills.

I always thought "Unsound" was pretty metal

Not sure if that's metal, but songs from the album forgotten anthology were pretty heavy, like Meat and of course the That Metal Show theme :lol:

You're missing so much in this life. Go watch The Room. Then watch it again.

I've been listening to lots of DT lately. Spent a good portion of my childhood and teenage days listening to Scenes from a Memory so it's like a trip through memory lane here. What a nostalgic ride.

"Another World" from A Change of Seasons is such a beautiful part of the song. SFAM itself is amazing. "Another Day' is a cheesy and yet awesome ballad. Erotomania, Metropolis pt 1... Great songs.

After Train of Thought I was already listening to other types of music and the masturbation of prog rock was not interesting anymore. But there are some good modern DT songs too, I really enjoy The Ministry of Lost Souls, Octavarium (the song) and The Count of Tuscany.

Mike Portnoy was essential to this band. His charisma can't be matched. They have three albums with Magini already and I can't bother to listen to them.

I was about to open a DT thread but fuck it, just wanted to share this with someone. DT is awesome. I've made a 14 songs playlist and the thing is 2h30m long!

I really like LaBrie's voice. :lol:
