    This is why they are not a good band. Good bands stick together.
    They're falling apart because their best friend and drummer died. Mike Portnoy was the Drummer of Dream Theater.

    But yes, since The Rev died (the drummer), A7X have been pretty ****. They're not really worth bothering with now tbh. I'd listen to their old stuff but I wouldn't bother watching them on tour again. They just play all the horrendous stuff off their new album which is quite frankly embarrassing.

    It aint their best stuff but it's not horrendous either. I just think they're trying to hard to be young again.

    :dontknow: I guess you like it. I think it's pretty bad. I only really like about 2 songs off that album. I guess a lot of people who mainly listen to metal wouldn't really be that fond of it.

        Oh yeah not January.


        But yeah it has been officially released, it was prescription drugs he mucked them up, had lots of alcohol. He was taking them because he'd had an eye operation. He also had an enlarged heart which may have contributed, due to his prolonged use of drugs like cocaine. It's been called accidental.

          He wouldn't be given diamorph after an eye op tbh :no:

          He also used benzodiazepines, which are anxiety drugs. Slow the heart rate down.

          :rolleyes: I unfollow anyone on tumblr who posts anything like that now. It's pathetic. They never met him, and even if they did he was nothing to them. They probably didn't even care about him before he died if truth be told.

          Yeah I was going to say he had psychological issues like anxiety and possibly others. I reckon he probably had something like ADHD, he was off his trolly.

          He was a fantastic musician though, and had such a creative mind. It's a real shame. :sadnod::rip:
