Mike Portnoy took to his twitter to speak about his experience in the studio and to thank Avenged Sevenfold fans. He also shares a picture of his and Zacky Vengance’s matching Deathbat tattoos along with M Shadows’ tribute tattoo to The Rev – You can read what he had to say below:
Just finished the A7X drum tracks…what an amazing experience! Me & Zacky celebrated by getting matching Death Bat tats here in the studio. I must thank the amazing A7X fans for being so open and welcoming to me..I was fearing them being very defensive over The Rev’s drum throne. But they’ve all been so supportive, open-minded, understanding and excited by the news…it is a huge relief to me and the guys… …what an awesome family spirit these guys have…lotsa love! Hopefully this wont be the last time we play together.
