As you all know(or didn't know), Mike Portnoy parted ways with DT a while back and they've been searching for their new drummer. Apparently, they found him but the choice is not announced yet. But... But they have this video series on youtube now that shows their search for their new drummer called The Spirit Carries On(one of my favourite songs from them btw) on the roadrunner youtube page. Apparently they had "7 of the world's best drummers" to audition. Each video is around 20 mins long. Plus or minus a few minutes.
