SO, in little over an hour is the day Avenged Sevenfolds new album is released and, i have to admit, i'm barely able to contain my exitement. if it was pouring with rain outside, and freezing with cold to boot, i would probably be camped out next to the letter box in my sleeping bag. that's how excited i am, unfortunatly, it's freezing and wet. so i'm staying inside, and i doubt i'm gonna sleep tonight, i'm just way too excited.
i have to say, i'm feeling majour mixed emotions.... will i like it, will it ever sound the same without Jimmy,or.... am i gonna be majourly dissappointed, i think A7X are gonna have a hard time replacing Jimmy, though i hear his 'fill-in' Mike Portnoy has managed to almost perfectly replicate Jimmy. it sounds as if Jimmy really is playing on 'Nightmare' but will the rest of the album do Jimmy justice. I'm praying they're able to produce just as amazing material, though it's sad to think he's gone.
Anyway, i cant think what else to write so i'm off to watch the minutes tick away until My Book Of Nightmares arrives, god help the post lady if it isnt there, i might even cry!

So, there's only six days till the Avenged Sevenfold nightmare begins. Which also means i have to wait six whole days for the new album to be released.
anyways, i've only just seen the new Video, which i included in the post, and personally think it's totally awsome. and to think, there nearly wasnt an Avenged sevenfold. scary really. i've been trying to will the month to go faster but it just doesnt seem to want to. but.... six day's really isnt that bad, unless your a die hard A7X fan...... which i just so happen to be.

Ok, so Tonight Alive are a sydney based Pop Punk band, sorta like Paramore, but better! i've been listening to them for about six months and am super psyhced abot the EP they released on the 18th of June. The EP is called All Shapes and Disguises, and they've just recorded the first music Video, for the song Wasting Away.(Which was filmed in different places all over Sydney!)
The band did a 10-date support tour in America and is starting to make waves there and back home .They have also opend for the likes of 3OH!3 and Mest - not bad for a band that only came together last year!

To some, December 28th, 2009 and the days that followed were completely normal. To others, it was one of the worst days lived by an Avenged Sevenfold fan. James Owen Sullivan, also known as The Rev, died. Since then, no one has known exactly how he died. Now, the truth has come out.
On June 9th, 2010, it was confirmed that Orange County Deputy Coroner Mitchell Sigal told Rolling Stone that Jimmy had died from an accidental prescription drug and alcohol overdose. He suffered an "acute poly-drug intoxication due to combined effects of Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Diazepam/Nordiazepam and ethanol.”
Oxycodone is a painkiller that substitutes for Codeine, Oxymorphone is a painkiller similar to Morphine, Diazepam/Nordiazepam are anxiety medications and ethanol is the intoxicant in alcohol. Jimmy had an enlarged heart, which was marked in the coroner's report as a condition that could have played a role in the drummer's untimely death. It is said that the Coroner's Department conducted quite a few tests to confirm this information.
Jimmy's private funeral was held January 6th, 2010 in Huntington Beach, California. Brian Haner Jr. (also known as Synyster Gates) delivered the eulogy and the attendees include the members of Avenged Sevenfold, Sullivan's wife and family, Bullet For My Valentine's Matt Tuck, ex-Pantera member Vinne Paul, and the members of My Chemical Romance and Buckcherry.

Here's what Zacky wrote on the band's site:
After being so kind and caring to help us in the studio, the rumors are in fact true and Mike Portnoy will indeed be helping us on the upcoming UPROAR tour later this year. We hope to see you all out on the road. We are very grateful to Mike for dedicating his time and talent to help us get back on the road so we can be where we need to be the most which is with our fans. Much Love and Respect
