The Golden Gods Awards trailer is here

I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t trust any award ceremony where they honor Gods and I’m not nominated. So don’t hold it against me if I’m not extremely excited for this ceremony.

But its trailer has hit the net (as seen above) and it does feature a Pantera song so how bad can it be? Well, let’s put it this way… Avenged Sevenfold seems like the big winner of the evening.

By the way, this already happened last month, but it’s gonna be aired more than a month later because, why would you need to show it as it happens? It’s just an award ceremony, it’s not like anyone will post the awards rendering the whole night useless as the ‘excitement factor’ disappears. Get real, yo.

Make the jump for a list of what will happen so that you don’t have to actually watch it.


Avenged Sevenfold release video. World laughs.

Avenged Sevenfold released a music video for the song ‘So Far Away.’ What is this, 1998? I thought music videos weren’t popular anymore.

Anyway, you can watch the video after the jump. But does it pass the awesome test?

– A lot of shots of the vocalist singing and emoting while doing so? Check.
– Some young guys having a good time in the video so that the band fools us into thinking they can relate to the youth? Check.
– Skinny guy drumming on his friend’s back? Check.
– Some guy throwing a drink in his face? Check.

This video has EVERYTHING!!!


Avenged Sevenfold’s new drummer revealed

Avenged Sevenfold

The news that are interesting probably just to the drummer himself, because touring with Avenged Sevenfold will surely increase his income (that’s why Mike Portnoy was sad when he left and tried to go back to his old buddies in Dream Theater), are out! I’m so excited, because my new porn film just finished downloading and I can watch it after I finish writing this article.

It’s none other than… Arin Ilejay! Oh my god, really?! Oh, wait… Who?


Portnoy “wasn’t” kicked out

No, we’re  not talking about Dream Theater sorry, but instead the faces of ‘guyliner’ Avenged Sevenfold. As we previously reported, Mike Portnoy had left (or rather, had “nicely” been kicked out) the band, but now (in case Metal soap opera’s are your thing) the band’s manager has been nice enough to offer his two cents, even though no one asked for it and no one cares for it.

“The plan had always been for Mike Portnoy to play with the band through 2010. Nothing changed there.” said Avenged Sevnfold‘s janitor manager whilst counting his change. “it was confusing because Mike gave interviews suggesting he may be touring with the band beyond 2010. There will be another drummer behind the kit for the band’s ‘Nightmare After Christmas’ tour [in January/February] as well as for the many other dates around the world that are underway into 2011 and beyond.”

More information can be found at Blabbermouth.


Mike Portnoy leaves another band

Last time, it was the phenomenal, Dream Theater, but it’s ok, because this time it’s only Avenged Sevenfold.

Why did he leave? Maybe he was tired of simply ripping off better bands. Or maybe the guys asked him to also wear eyeliner and dress like a girl? Who knows… I would read the statement to find out, but it’s only Avenged Sevenfold, so it’s not like I actually care.

If you care, here’s the statement Mike made (stolen from Blabbermouth of course):

“Yes, the rumors are true… Sadly my time with Avenged Sevenfold has come to an end… The band has decided to carry on into 2011 without me…” said Mike whilst counting his money.

Oh so he was kicked out then huh? Mike went on and on, and I’m lazy, so if you want the full statement, check out the link above. Or don’t.
