Rainy Monday

It's Monday and this week is already getting to me >_>

I only had two classes today and I'm done with that but now I have mass amounts of work to do.
I just want to thank everyone who's been following me and supporting this young blog which I hope will become something fun not just for me to write but also to read :P

Today i thought I'd share another song that I've been addicted to for the past few months



This song really makes me happy about Dream Theater, and to be honest i think it's one of my favorites.

It's sad to think about Dream Theater without Mike Portnoy but hopefully things will work out once everyone's had a good break from each other. I wish the remainder of Dream Theater good luck with the new album thought, i'm excited to see what DT is going to sounds like without Portnoy.
As well as for Portnoy I hope he keeps on having fun with all his side projects as well as helping out A7X.

Avenged Sevenfold's newest album Nightmare was, in my opinion, nothing more than a tribute to the Rev. I mean, people give it a lot of shit about this album (fans and haters alike), but I feel that you have to remember that they are still people who just lost a brother, not just a drummer.
And I'm sure that Jimmy, although talented, was not the best and that there are plenty of people who could replace him on drums, but no one could ever replace him as family or friend.
So I think that Nightmare really did what the band intended it to do, which was mourn the loss of their brother.
If you listen to the entire album you can definitely hear the sadness and mourning of the band as well as The Rev's influence (he did write a lot of the album before passing).

I'm excited to see what the future holds in store for these two bands, two of my favorites actually.

But for now I have to go do my homework >_>
