If there’s one thing that progressive metal lends itself to, it’s beatboxing, right?  Maybe not, but somehow, YouTube user Roboyette managed to make it work. In fact, he covered Dream Theater’s “Dance of Eternity.” It’s a pretty complex song, with quite a few time signatures changes – 108 by his count, or in his words, “arguably the most rhythmically complex song in the rock and metal world.” It seems like that would take a lot of memorization on his part, or at least some flash cards with the tempos. That’s exactly what he did, and he holds up the flash cards to bring us along on the journey. It’s an amazing skill that you might not have thought existed, but he does it amazingly well. Even if you don’t like Dream Theater or beatboxing, you – well, actually, if you don’t like either, move along, there’s nothing to see here…
