Former Dream Theater drummer spoke in an interview with Anne Erickson and claimed that metal music is bigger and better than ever. Here’s the statement:

“I think metal is bigger and better than ever. It went through a rough period in the late ’90s and all of my favorite metal bands went through these horrible changes and the industry kind of just shut it out.

But I would say the last 15 years or so, it’s been back and bigger and better and stronger than ever.”
