Band Photo: Avenged Sevenfold (?)

Yesterday, 25 year drummer Mike Portnoy announced his decision to leave Dream Theater, and the band then also issued a statement regarding Portnoy's departure. Portnoy's Facebook has since been updated with the following brief statement asking fans not to blame the break on his recent involvement with Avenged Sevenfold after the death of the band's drummer James "The Rev" Sullivan:

"I BEG of the fans to please NOT hold A7X responsible for MY decision...they are just as shocked as you guys..I had been contemplating this and desiring a 'break' (not split) as long ago as last year...everything else is fully explained in the press release...thank you all for your support and understanding...this is the hardest thing I've ever done..."

Additional details on Mike Portnoy's future musical projects will be announced as they are made available.

What's Next?

Yo goosegoblin, it's his choice, it's not like Avenged forced Mike to leave, or tempted him out. If he had wanted to pursue a full-time career with them, he would have said so. Although I personally am not a fan of Dream Theater, this is still a shocking revelation, and I wish both DT and Mike luck with their respective futures.

Come on guys, let's not take this too seriously.
Both Dream Theater and Avenged Sevenfold are in a drummerless situation. With a bit of luck we can get rid off both!

you back f***er, do u know what ur talking about?..avenged sevenfold is just a bunch of guys who also praise DT for its successful career and the skills that every member of the band has. even 'the rev' idolized portnoy. so if you are not into this sh**ty great band, well piss off. without DT, portnoy cant be what he is now today because a band works as a team. without a7x, DT is still DT now.

#19, You sir are the retard here not bristowe. There was some magazine that voted Joey the best drummer in the last 25 years...bristowe was making a point that Joey isn't the best but was voted the best...meaning that he thinks Portnoy wants to join a more popular band to get some awards himself. :p It's well known that any awards ceremony winners 99.9 times out of 100 are not the best choice. It's all a popularity fest.

How the f*** are people possibly blaming avenged sevenfold for this? first of all by that (retarded) logic we should also blame hail! and transatlantic, is it their fault that their drummer died and that he idolized mike portnoy, hate on sevenfold all you want but they needed to continue making music for their brother, it was only natural to ask a drummer who "the rev" idolized and had similar drum patterns, NOT TO MENTION mike said this had nothing to do with them, and if you jackasses saw some of his previous interview (before he joined sevenfold) he said he needed a break, but when he asked for it his quite frankly a$$hole band mates, wouldn't let him have it, if this is anyones fault it's dream theaters'.

A7X are still really really gay, and they are DEFINITELY to blame for all this. Definitely.

The Rev was not a revolutionary or metal drummer and people gave him so much credt just because of his death. I find it very difficult to be the best band in a genre that you're in no way a part of.

Ok, this fresh fist guy is a retard! With that fact known, metalfan653 you are very wrong in your statement " you might as well listen to justin bieber" ?? Really? Just because korn and most the bands mentioned are nu-metal or not as heavy as most metal has nothing to do with the fact that you just said that! That is an ignorant and typical metalhead statement. Please show us that you are not that dumb. Korn has created a whole genre in itself, may not be your cup of tea, but should still be respectable, along with slipknot and even A7X. Me personally, consider them metal, but a different genre. Even at the least have introduced people to even harder genres of metal. So try not to be so close-minded when trying to top some idiots post!

Keep crying dude, no one has sympathy for you here.

Better yet, Someone might find you and fill your mouth with human mud, wrapped in the latest A7X CD.

SlipKnot and KoRn are not metal, however I do respect KoRn since they don't claim to be metal.

I like how everyone registered in this site has come here just bash either A7x or one of their stupid fans.

No one should blame A7X. It's Mike Portnays life, isn't it? You should blame him. Besides this can be a good thing for Dream Theater. Their last two albums were the worst ones since Falling into Infinity. Maybe a new fresh face can bring a different perspective
