This is a drum cover by José Almeida, who is learning the drums at Digil Music – Vale de Cambra.
He wants to make a drum cover video series of his favourite artists and he thought that this
A7X – “So far away”should be perfect to start.
This song was the 3rd single from the album Nightmare.
The guitarist Synyster Gates wrote this very simple song after the band´s drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan was found dead on 28 December 2009. It was Synyster way of saying goodbye to his bandmate and friend. This was the first time Synyster Gates created both lyrics and orchestration for Avenged Sevenfold.
Former Dream Theater Mike Portnoy was invited to record the drum parts and tour to promote the album.
Among others, Jimmy Sullivan joins John Bonham or Keith Moon as drummers who ended their careers too early.
All credit goes to Avenged Sevenfold. Please support the band´s work if you like this.
