Deden, who lives in South Bengkulu in Indonesia, shared several covers of Dream Theater songs once performed by Mike Portnov himself, being a drummer in it. Drums in the video sound very good against the background of the band’s music.
The video today is one of the ten most popular compositions on music topics on the YouTube, it already has more than two million views. The audience admires the skill of the drummer, who was able to masterfully perform several Dream Theater compositions on primitive homemade percussion.
