Avenged Sevenfold released a brand new track to day  called "Not Ready To Die". The song is featured in Call of the Dead, one of five new maps in the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation content pack – available now on Xbox Live. I haven't found confirmation on this, but I'm pretty sure this is the first song where the drum parts were written by new drummer Arin Ilejay who joined the band back in January after Mike Portnoy was dismissed.

I just downloaded the new song and the beginning reminds me a lot of 'Critical Acclaim' from their 2007 self-titled album. The vocals get a little heavier, more up the alley of 'God Hates Us' rather than the sound from their album 'Waking The Fallen' ...but still, mixing in some of the heavier vocals is a definite plus! Download the map pack on Xbox Live, or get the new song on iTunes...or do like I do and  get a Zune Pass...then pick up the sticks, slay some zombies on COD, and rock out to a brand new track from A7X!

I just realized that once i FINALLY got the images off my camera from the Nightmare After Christmas Tour I never uploaded them...better late then never, I guess, eh? Check out my view from the show.
