There is no doubt that late Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan is beloved by his fans, and that was very evident in his decisive victory against the very talented System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan in Round 1 of the Greatest Metal Drummer tournament. During his career, ‘The Rev’ provided distinct combination of power and technique for Avenged Sevenfold, most notably with his variations between his kick drums and ride cymbal. ‘The Rev’ advances to Round 2.

In Round 1, Pantera / Hellyeah‘s Vinnie Paul defeated his good friend, Lamb of God’s Chris Adler, in a battle of drummers who both bring a beefy sound to their respective bands. Vinnie Paul is a beast behind the kit, but this Round 2 battle will be epic, as Vinnie Paul goes head-to-head with the late great Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan!
