I don't see what possible consequence this could have. If he's good enough for Zakk, he's good enough for me.

Dude, VNM what is your problem? BLS f***ing rocks, and just because I'm not big on Evanescence doesn't mean their drummer necessarily sucks. It's better news than Mike Portnoy working with A7X.

You really have horrible taste...Black Label is a god among men in the metal scene. It's Zakk f***ing Wylde man, but I'm sure you wouldn't know who that is.

And on a side note...WTF

lol Spaghaetti_Motel...whatever the name means. No I don't ride the short bus i walk haha, and what I said did sound a little dumb, but it makes sense. I wouldn't call them a god among men in metal, but in music.

Then again, if you argue BLS isn't metal, that is practically the same as saying Sabbath isnt metal. You comfortable with that?

I have one of their albums: Mafia. That album is classic
