  2. What the hell... Mike is a way more experienced drummer with a long time in the game and has contributed the drumming as we kno it with so freaking much! What is arin? A skinny, former wanna-be punk with a ginger afro or something! He has (as I am aware of) contributed NOTHING to the larger, worldwide drummer-community.. and still these lil shitkids vote him the best? Just because he is the current drummer of A7X?!? I miss the good old days, when people who enjoyed A7X were people with a taste for music and it's history, not obsessive 12yearold girls with daddy-issues...

    2. Portnoy has way more skill then Arin simply because Portnoy has been playing drums longer then Arin has been alive and like Ahmad said he has contributed much more to the community then Arin has

  3. In my opinion, it's not just about skills. The question is: who do people like more? Arin plays in a band adored by millions of people, it's obvious that more people like him more; more people know him. The other thing: Portnoy has great skills and is like a god in his own genre, but Avenged Sevenfold's music has always required different skills, the old style, the new style, they always need some kind of 'accommodation' that is all about talent (!!!) Let's not forget one thing: Mike has played in Sevenfold for a while, too and fans no him, but Arin can play everything, classic metal, hardcore, progressive. Portnoy also has different styles but the repertoire is not that big compared to the ages of the two drummers. Personally, I like both of them but my vote is for Arin. :)

  4. I've been a fan of a7x since the city of evil, and personally now that that jimmy is gone(god rest his soul) the band has gotten a lot of emo pussy ass fans that decided to get on the a7x wagon and blow up votes whether or not the other group or person is better then they are or not. So I voted for Portnoy cause he is in my opinion a far better drummer than Arin considering the fact that he was Jimmy's main influence, and Jimmy is Arin's. So let the facts of that help you judge on who is better. Don't be a blind fan boy. Okay \m/
