Turbulence Covers Moment of Betrayal

Only two weeks after Dream Theater released their second single “Moments of Betrayal” from their upcoming album “The Astonishing”, Lebanon’s Progressive band Turbulence released a cover of the single.

According to the band, this was done in one sleepless week where they learned and recorded the song at DBM Production Studio in only 3 days (and I complain about having a month to learn a couple of 12 bar blues song :’)). The mixing and mastering was done by Bassem Daouk, while Alain Ibrahim handled the production. Next to Alain Ibrahim who also took on the guitars and backing vocals, were Mood Yassine on keyboards and Owmar el-Hage on vocals from the original line-up. The cover features drummer Simon Ciccotti from Italy (who was a guest drummer on Turbulence’s debut album “Disequilibrium”) and bassist Sebastien Melki ex-Monarchy from Canada.

I enjoyed every bit of the song, from the beginning to the very end. The guys added so much life to the song. Now I might be called biased for, but to me, and that’s just my personal opinion, this cover was much better than the original, which sounded very machine-like (ironically since the album is partly about noise machines that destroy music during the ruling of a tyrant emperor).

But it seems I’m not the only one who enjoyed the cover.

    not their best album by far, too many songs and some of them maybe with a strange feeling of deja vu… anyway, check lyrics here if u need:
