RollingStone.com reports that AVENGED SEVENFOLD drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan died on December 28, 2009 from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol. Toxicology reports indicate that Sullivan suffered "acute polydrug intoxication due to combined effects of Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Diazepam/Nordiazepam and ethanol," according to Orange County Deputy Coroner Mitchell Sigal. Sigal added that Sullivan also had cardiomegaly (an enlarged heart), which was marked in the coroner's report as a "significant condition" that may have played a role in the drummer's death. The Coroner's Department conducted "five or six" different tests to verify the cause of death, Sigal added.

"To all of us who loved Jimmy, the only thing relevant about December 28 is that is the night we lost, too soon, a son, brother, friend and one of the most talented artists in the world," the band's manager Larry Jacobson tells RollingStone.com. "Every day, his parents and sisters, and his brothers in AVENGED SEVENFOLD smile at the many memories they have of Jimmy and his fans around the world revel in the musical legacy he left them."

Review: Avenged Sevenfold's 'Nightmare' indecisive
By Ron Harris, Associated Press Writer


Avenged Sevenfold, "Nightmare" (Warner Bros.)

Making good metal music requires commitment. And no one can say the current members of the metalcore band Avenged Sevenfold don't work hard at their craft. But their latest album "Nightmare" rides the fence on exactly what type of metal it wants to be.

And indecision has cost them.

On "Nightmare," Avenged Sevenfold speeds through most of the songs, driven by the frenetic pace of their drummer, Mike Portnoy. The band's original drummer, Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, died last year and this is the band's first album without him on the drums, though his vocals can be heard on one track, "Fiction."

Soaring guitar leads add to the mayhem, and the vocals from M. Shadows are technically perfect. All this from a very technical metal band.

But that's where they go astray. Much of "Nightmare" is metal by design. It's mostly overproduced, as on the title track "Nightmare" and "God Hates Us." Producer Mike Elizondo could be blamed for this odd attempt to appease various flavors of metal fans. But the blame must be shared.

"Welcome To the Family" has great energy and purpose, but there is a sonic disconnect. There's simply too much separation between the energy of the instruments and the too-clean delivery of the vocals.

"Natural Born Killer" has the most pell-mell pace of them all. Speed is king here, with guitar licks whizzing by so fast they threaten to outrun the rest of the band. If the entire album had been made at this pace the listener would likely run out of breath just humming along.

Avenged Sevenfold's "Nightmare" is what happens when highly technical metal musicians dabble in too many sub-genres. It's a fine display of abilities, but there is no theme to the delivery and the approach to most songs feels random, like the guys couldn't decide what type of metal to play.

Their ultimate decision was to play them all and let the listener sort it out. Bad call.

CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: "Buried Alive" starts slow, but quickly builds up steam. The guitar leads often sound so fast and clean they could be mistaken for something spit out of a computer.

Me either, but I don't recall hearing much of their music.

My step-kids raved about how good they were for about 15 minutes, which doesn't help their case... :P

They have a few decent tunes, and one album I consider great. After that, I fell off paying attention to them. This album being a hodge-podge doesn't seem like that bad of an idea to me like the article says.

And as for the Rev's death all KI can say is

Surprise! You're Dead

I still haven't tried anything of theirs... I think they'll probably be too "cookie" for my tastes.

I was driving myself nuts for a while there because I thought I had bought one of their CDs to try out. After some serious searching, I realized it was Sevendust. :lol:

Those "Seven" bands all sound alike to me anyway. :P

Nightmare is very good and not just because Portnoy plays on it...but it didn't hurt. As far as the rest of their stuff, what I've heard seems generic.

"Nightmare" is their last album, I assume? The post-"Rev" one?

Maybe I'll pick it up the next time I hit the Amazon... That would excite my daughters to no end. They absolutely love that shit... :lol:

All those years I spent polluting their minds with 80s metal for nothing... :?

:lmao:
