A7X ENTERS STUDIO WITH MIKE PORTNOY

* General news

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.

I'm not particularly a big Avenged Sevenfold fan. Or one of Dream Theater, for that matter. That being said, that's pretty cool of Mike Portnoy to do.

Personally I don't understand why Mike Portnoy, a respected drummer in the metal community, would join up with Avenged Sevenfold who, are to put it nicely, aren't very respected. Totally baffles me.
