Dream Theatre has announced that they will be heading to Mexico in March 2010. The progressive metallers are scheduled to perform three shows:
March 5: Monterrey, Mexico (Esenica)
March 7: Mexico City, Mexico (National Auditorium)
March 8: Guadalajara, Mexico (Diana Theatre)
Dream Theatre has recently been noted for contributed a new instrumental song - "Raw Dog" - to the digital EP soundtrack for PlayStation 3's highly anticipated God of War III. The EP, titled God of War: Blood & Metal, is set for release in March and will be a part of the God of War III: Ultimate Edition package. The release will also feature five previously unreleased tracks from artists such as Trivium, Taking Dawn, Killswitch Engage, and Opeth.
When asked about the exclusive instrumental track for the soundtrack, drummer Mike Portnoy said, "This is the first time in 24 years that we've written and recorded a song for anything other than one of our own albums, so we're up for the challenge and excited to have been asked."
Those who purchase God of War III: Ultimate Edition will receive a voucher code that will allow them to download the EP soundtrack. They will also receive a code that enables them to download the director's cut of God of War: Unearthing the Legend - a full-length documentary detailing the history of the God of War franchise. Fans will also be able to access an exclusive God of War Challenge Arena environment containing up to seven challenges, a limited edition art book, and a Kratos skin. The Ultimate Edition will retail for $99.99 USD (MSRP).
