Avenged Sevenfold Featuring Mike Portnoy: First Audio Sample Released
A 30-second audio sample of Avenged Sevenfold's brand new single, "Nightmare", is available for streaming at Soundcloud.com. The song comes off Avenged Sevenfold's fifth studio album, which is due out July 27. Guitarist Zacky Vengeance wrote at the band's official Twitter page, "There are no words that will ever describe the feeling of listening to this album while driving home alone at 4 a.m." Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy recently issued a statement about being tapped to work with Avenged Sevenfold on the band's new album. Portnoy filled in for James "The Rev" Sullivan, who died in late December. Portnoy said, "Even under normal circumstances, I would've been happy to help the guys out in any way I could as I think AVENGED SEVENFOLD are a great band...but under these incredibly sad and tragic circumstances, I must say I am truly honored to have been asked to play with them and I didn't even have to think twice about saying 'yes.'" Portnoy added, "These guys are a true family and it is an incredibly emotional experience to be here with them for the first time without their lost brother. But they have welcomed me into the family with open arms and there's a real excitement to make the record they had set out to make." Portnoy also said, "I am treating my participation on this album with the utmost respect for Jimmy's memory and am remaining as true as possible to the drum parts that he wrote for the songs and the record he wanted to make."
