Avenged Sevenfold Releases Statement: “Moving Forward Without Arin Ilejay.”

Hello Everyone –
We are writing this to inform you all that we will be moving forward without Arin IIejay as our drummer. Arin has been nothing but a positive energy and monster drummer for us over the past 4 years. We love the guy and always will. We are and will always be grateful to him for helping us to move forward through some very dark times. Creatively though, we felt we needed to move in a different direction. While we can’t say more at this time, we are excited for the future and looking forward to sharing our plans soon with the greatest fans in the world. As always we appreciate your understanding and unwavering support.

With Love –
Matt, Zack, Brian, Johnny


What are your thoughts and feelings??

  • Renfield:When you die, Dracula tortures you forever- whether you were good or not. I find that lack of responsibility really liberating. No matter how bad your life is, it gets worse after! Stay alive as long as you can! Nothing you do will make Dracula angry! Dracula was angry already! So why not convert to Dracula- the god who hates you unconditionally?
  • Jack:[Slams door in Renfield's face]
  • Renfield:Dracula's gonna fuck you up when you die! No worse than me, mind.

Malaspina Glacier

Malaspina Glacier in southeastern Alaska is the quintessential illustration of a piedmont glacier. In fact, it is the world’s largest piedmont glacier — almost 65 kilometers wide and up to 45 kilometers long from the mountains to the edge of the sea. Piedmont glaciers are wide and bulb-shaped lobes that form when moving glaciers confined by mountain valleys spread out into a broad, flat plain. Malaspina Glacier was formed from the fusion of two valley glaciers — Agassiz Glacier on the left of the image and Seward Glacier from the right. To obtain this perspective view image of Malaspina Glacier, the scientists on the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) developed an elevation model and combined it with a Landsat satellite image. Shifting glaciers — how much glacial ice and snow accumulate or melt in a given period of time — are delicate barometers for global climate change. Observing glacial change is a task best suited from an aerial perspective, and since 1972, Landsat imaging has been the premier means for such a task.
