It sounds ok, but mike portnoy (as usual) is trying to focus on his drumming and it gets kind of irritating hearing him band around during the progressions.

I thought Portnoy was going to get a nose ring and join Avnged Sevenfold? The "boys" in Avenged Sevenfold probably got tired of ol Portnoy and eventually he became that uncool Uncle who won't stop asking, "What's shakin' Bro-sef?

Lol'd at that one Bruno.

I really don't know why he left them anyway he was doin' alright with Avenged. Plus their new drummer is nothin' special. Portnoy is a fvckin' legend. I just don't get it.

I mean either way like I said this should be an interesting band to hear. I can't wait for the finished product. Theres a vid of them doin' Mob Rules, and I have to say I'm really impressed by it. I'm actually gonna say that on that page right now lol.

ZMA i'm not sure but i don't think he left A7X, i believe they ousted him because his "year's contract was up".

Ah ok duncan. Well if........(haha I just noticed your name. duncan hills. I hope that's a Dethklok reference.)

Anyway well if that was the case I still don't understand it. He was doin' well in that band. And I don't see the need for contracts. He should leave when he wants, or when the band whats him to. Metal contracts? lol. I guess it's whatever though. It is what is it. Not gonna dig to far into it.
