The comeback album of Transatlantic, an international supergroup with Dream Theater’s main man behind the drumkit, has just been released. It is widely known that Mike Portnoy likes Swedish progressive rockers Beardfish. He even picked them for the American leg of this year’s Progressive Nation Tour, which fell through in the end due to the bankruptcy of SPV, distributor and owner of Beardfish’s record label InsideOut. Mr. Portnoy goes further showing his appreciation for the young Swedes on the aforementioned Transatlantic record where he plays a drum groove pretty similar to one from Beardfish’s “Sleeping in Traffic, Part Two” album.
Here’s a little medley of Beardfish’s “The Hunter” and Transatlantic’s “On The Prowl”. Enjoy!
