In an interview with Nikki Blakk of California radio station 107.7 The Bone, Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Zacky Vengeance talked about unwillingly being caught up in some of the drama between their former touring sticksman Mike Portnoy and his former band Dream Theater.
It's that time of year when every metalhead looks back at the last 12 months to pay tribute to the albums that shaped their year. Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci, keyboardist Jordan Rudess and bassist John Myung have offered their top 10 picks of 2011.
Progressive metal masters Dream Theater have waited a long, long time to hear that they've been nominated for a Grammy Award, but last night, the 26-year wait was put to an end. 'On the Backs of Angels' from their 2011 release 'A Dramatic Turn of Events' put Dream Theater among the nominees for the Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance award.
It's official! The nominees have been announced for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, with Mastodon, Megadeth, Dream Theater and the Foo Fighters capturing nominations for the newly formed Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance category - which combines the old Best Hard Rock Performance and Best Metal Performance categories.
Dream Theater gave New York City fans a theatrical performance at the very elegant looking Beacon Theater last night (Oct. 12). Labelmates Trivium served as support, to say the least. In essence, the crowd got two massive, headlining bands in one explosive show.
Staind sold 47,000 copies of their self-titled seventh album to debut at No. 5 on this week's Billboard 200 albums chart. Staind's last album, 2008's 'The Illusion of Progress,' moved just more than 90,000 copies in its opening week to land at No. 3 on the tally.
