It may have took the loss of brother, friend and drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, but Avenged Sevenfold have managed to push through the grief and loss by creating one of the most solid and impressive releases of their careers
Overall, Nightmare is a pretty sad album, but this is the type of album that would have never existed were it not for the loss of The Rev. Avenged Sevenfold stepped up to the plate and delivered the most mature, developed album of their careers, and while it’s likely not going to sway the detractors, Nightmare definitely serves as fine tribute to a fallen friend.
