Avenged Sevenfold Enters The Recording Studio With Mike Portnoy

Band Photo: Avenged Sevenfold (?)

Avenged Sevenfold has issued the following update about entering the recording studio with Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater:

"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 that’s 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."

Avenged Sevenfold drummer James "The Rev" Sullivan passed away late last year, found dead in his home on December 28, 2009.

What's Next?

Anyway, this too sounds pretty intense. Portnoy is a beast, and should be interesting to see with a band like A7X.

The new album will make or break A7X for me. I thought the last album was an artsy experimental piece of sh**, and I hope they get back to their older sound.

A Little Piece of Heaven is forever on my top however, for lyrical reasons only.

I'm definitely not a fan of A7X and probably never will be, but I must say that Mike Portnoy is a really great guy for doing this. I've seen him a few times and he's a really nice cool guy and an awesome drummer. It's cool to know the guy's favorite drummer is going to record as a respect to him.

I would also like to say something to #4 livingDeaDbeat00. You're f***in gorgeous. I read your bio and you seem cool as hell. If you lived in the Chicago area, I guarantee I would see at a metal show cuz that's mostly what I do. Like you, I love Metallica, Trivium, In Flames, and Children of Bodom. Amon Amarth and Goatwhore are good as well and my friend has gotten me into Lazarus A.D. KEEP IT METAL!

I'm looking forward to giving this album a listen. I preferred their latest album to the one previous to it. They're actually really talented guys. Other than the way they act and carry themselves I respect the material they've released.

It'll be interesting with Mike Portnoy on the album though. He is a cool guy. But I don't think he'll make up for M. Shadow's vocals. His vocals make me cringe.

It shows the respect that Portnoy has for Avenged, and Portnoy being one of my favourite drummers all time and easily at the top of the list right now, shows that Avenged should get a little more redit then they get bby a community like this, like all the people who sh** on them in the post about Jimmy dying lol.

Right, Mike Portney is probably the best drummer out there, and it'll be interesting to see what happens with him and A7X.
BUT, A7X worked sooooo so well as a group, they were almost made for eachother. The Rev had a totally Unique style and i loved it, A7X won't sound the same without him.

Before this was published though, if A7X were to get a new drummer, then Mike Portney would have been my first choice, and thats exactly what's happened, so lets see.

Portnoy is a f***ing amazing drummer who will experiment with his style, so I guess he noticed the guts it took for Avenged to screw with their style so much and still come out with a universally accepted album. If you havent checked out their old stuff I personally enjoy it more, its much heavier.

#79, I agree with you 75% about Slipknot. Best live band/show I've ever seen. They're just as passionate about performing for their fans as any other band I've seen and the hydraulics with Joey flipping upside down is just awesome! Not to mention The percussionists on hydro's too lol crazy mofo's. I don't agree with the statement about them selling out, but that's just my opinion. I feel like they just really wanted to expand and explore new territory. Unfortunately most of their fans don't appreciate slower tunes and would've preferred that Corey keep that sort of thing to his side projects. Fair enough though. \m/

Hehe, I took the time to read the whole conversation of some people in here, kinda funny, you should try. But anyway:
I thought that A7x was douchebaggy too. But then I saw their 'Making of Avenged Sevenfold Album.' Now THAT made me respect Avenged Sevenfold so incredibly much.
There you see the aren't just awesome artists, they have a nice sense of humor, they are bunch of kind dudes. And yeah they say f*** You alot. Cause they can.
All of this was my OPINION. So you dont have to yell at me. They didn't make 2 sepperate words for nothing: Fact and Oppinion.

To be clear: I'm old school. I respect bands for their sound and their material, not for the way they appear in front of a camera for a documentary.
