Former Opiate for the Masses, current Leaves' Eyes and Atrocity drummer Seven Antonopolous has checked in with the following recap of NAMM:

"Hello everyone! I wanted to drop a few lines about our NAMM adventures. As most of you are probably awere, The Namm Convention is the largest trade/expo show here in the United States. But, more than that it's a great excuse for muscians to hang out, drink excessive amounts of whisky and interact with fans! Thursday night we went to see Simon phillips at the Hyatt hotel. I ended up doing shots with a couple crazy Germans go figure: Chris Koch my European Sabian rep and Christoph Schneider/Rammstein. Needless to say, we had a blast while Johnny Tempesta/The Cult and Charlie Benante/Anthrax brought down the house. So,friday it was myself,Christoph/Rammstein and Shawn/Megadeth at Vic Firth. Many thanks to Marco (The master of the grappa) for having us! Christoph, Shawn and I are really good friends and it's always cool hanging out for 'official business'! That night was the Sabian event Jojo Mayer played, always a real treat to see him play. Really inspiring! That brings us to saturday, and a pretty good size hangover! I was at the Sabian booth with a gang of shredders as well as good friends. Myself, Ray/Korn, Xavier/BuckCherry, Shawn/Megadeth. Ray and I did a drum clinic tour together for Sabian last November. He's one of my favorite players.
As always a Huge thank you to Chris Stankee and everyone at Sabian For a kiler time! I'd Also like to thank Vega, Garrison, Donell and all at D W drums! (special thanks, Vega getting me to my room thursday night!) In addition, Chris Brady and all at Aquarian drumheads! This was an Awesome NAMM and again thanks to all my endorsers for taking care of me all year long! Nothin' but the best!"
