Arin Ilejay, Drummer Baru Avenged Sevenfold [A7X]

Posted: August 15, 2011 in Artikel Muzic, Soul Drums

Sejak ditinggalkan The Rev, posisi penggebuk drum A7X sempat digantikan mantan drummer Dream Theater, Mike Portnoy. Namun Mike menolak untuk jadi drummer tetap A7X dan berhenti sebagai pemain tambahan pada Desember 2010 lalu. Meski begitu Mike sempat mengisi semua suara drum di album terbaru A7X, bertitle ‘Nightmare‘.

Sempat tersiar isu juga bahwa A7X akan menggunakan jasa Cobus Potgieter, drummer solo asal Afrika Selatan yang sempat menghebohkan karena aksi-aksinya di youtube. Permainannya dipengaruhi oleh gaya musik drummer hebat seperti Mike Portnoy, Carter Beauford, Tony Royster Jr, Travis Barker, dan Thomas Lang.

Tetapi pada situs resmi Avenged Sevenfold telah merilis pernyataan dan mengumumkan drummer  baru, Arin Ilejay, yang akan bergabung dengan mereka pada tur “Nightmare After Christmas”. Arin sebelumnya bermain dengan Confide  salah satu band metal dari Southern  California. Sekarang band ini telah membuat pengumuman resmi tentang bergabungnya Arin sebagai drummer baru Avenged Sevenfold.

Berikut pernyataan Avenged Sevenfold dalam situs resminya :

We recently asked several friends who knew Jimmy and his style, and also knew our music and each of our personalities to suggest drummers  to tour with us starting this year. Our long time studio drum tech, Mike Fasano, recommended Arin Ilejay. We’ve rehearsed with Arin and have been impressed with his technical  skills, attitude and work ethic. We’re very excited to tour with Arin and hope all of you will give him the warm welcome to the family we have.

    Thanks for your never ending support. It means the world to us.
    See you on the Nightmare After Christmas

Congratulations  to arin ilejay, hopefully compensate for skill from avenged sevenfold.. good luck !!!
