Official Guitar Tab for New Dream Theater Single "The Enemy Inside"

Posted by Michael Mueller on August 28, 2013 at 9:26 AM

On September 24, reigning prog-metal kings Dream Theater will release their new album, titled simply, Dream Theater. The album will be the band's 12th studio effort and first with drummer Mike Mangini on board for the entire writing and recording process. The first single, "The Enemy Inside," was released on August 5, 2013, and we've got the officially licensed guitar tab right here!

The song was tabbed for us by Jordan Baker and Ryan Maziarz, who have transcribed every Dream Theater album since 2005's Octavarium. To create the most accurate tab possible for "The Enemy Inside," Baker and Maziarz used isolated guitar tracks furnished them by guitarist John Petrucci, thus providing a crystal-clear audio source.

Here is the cover artwork and complete track listing:

1. False Awakening Suite
    i. Sleep Paralysis
    ii. Night Terrors
    iii. Lucid Dream
2. The Enemy Inside
3. The Looking Glass
4. Enigma Machine
5. The Bigger Picture
6. Behind the Veil
7. Surrender to Reason
8. Along for the Ride
9. Illumination Theory
    i. Paradoxe de la Lumière Noire
    ii. Live, Die, Kill
    iii. The Embracing Circle
    iv. The Pursuit of Truth
    v. Surrender, Trust & Passion

POLL: Vote for Your Favorite Whitesnake Guitarist

Posted by Michael Mueller on August 27, 2013 at 9:54 AM

Of all the '80s hair metal bands, Whitesnake had not only one of the genre's richest histories but also some of its fiercest guitar players. So we're very excited to have just posted 10 classic Whitesnake tracks, including "Slide It In," "Love Ain't No Stranger," and "Crying in the Rain," which for my money contains one of the greatest rock guitar solos of all time, courtesy of Mr. John Sykes.

But hey, that's just my (not so) humble opinion. So take a moment to tell us who you think is the greatest guitarist in Whitesnake's storied history.
