Avenged Sevenfold has a new drummer....Mike Portnoy!

A7X ENTERS STUDIO WITH MIKE PORTNOY Wed, 02/17/2010 - 23:57


I want our fans to know that with Jimmy in our hearts, our journey to record has officially began. Jimmy helped leave this world an amazing gift and now it's our job to make sure to deliver that gift to our fans. We asked Jimmy's all time favorite drummer Mike Portnoy to record on behalf of him. Mike said it would be an honor and without question thatís what Jim would have wanted. Its comforting to us that someone like Mike, who is undoubtedly revered as one of the best drummers in the world, held such respect and adoration for the Rev's abilities. Even though it will never be the same without our brother by our side, his essence lives in our hearts and through the music he helped create. He was a legend before any of the success or any of that bullshit and we are fucking excited to lay this down for our fans, and especially for Jimmy.

Trust me I don't troll. There's enough Deathcore/Emo dumbasses on the internet to do that.

well they're recording with him, something tells me Dream Theater's drumber would leave DT for A7X as awsome as Avenged is.

The guys in A7X won't be able to wrap their heads around Mike's time signatures

Don't worry, I know, I googled it to make sure.

No worries man.

I gotta admit I am very intrigued by this announcement. Mike Portnoy is my favorite drummer of all time, and A7X, well they are a good band at what they do, can't say I'm the biggest fan of them, but I'll definitely be checking this out.

Makes sense to me, both bands play their own variation of squeaky clean mehtal.

Alright, I know you like Orange amps and flannel shirts and lousy production. I do too. But equating Dream Theater and Avenged Sevenfold might just be one toke over the line.
