I am going to take a few minutes here, and over the next few weeks, to review Dream Theater’s new album, The Astonishing. IMO, this is a epic, massive and awe inspiring album. Clocking in at ~2h:10m, it’s gonna take a while.
The second track of ACT II is Moment of Betrayal. I’m going to go with DT tracks notes “Gabriel immediately tells Arhys the news about his meeting
with Nafaryus at the abandoned amphitheater and his plans to rehearse with the Princess beforehand. He is convinced that this is the opportunity he’s been waiting for…a chance to use his gift as a conduit of peace and the means for preventing any further bloodshed of their people and the destruction of Ravenskill.”
This is a fantastic, fantastic song.
