Sure, they're trying, and failing miserably.
Anyway, I think the Rev is a great drummer. He's not one of those drummers that tries to show off how good he is by playing the most complicated thing he can play for every fill, even though he could. He chooses a fill that fits with the music and I respect that. You can tell by listening to Avenged Sevenfold that he's the most talented member of the band.
Here's a link of him recording some songs on City of Evil: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-8E6AWnh18
The first part is Betrayed, then Bat Country.
Oh, and here's a clip of him recording Almost Easy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9fqEsVc4r8
Maybe not too impressive, but you can tell he's not trying very hard.
Also, I'm new here and this is my first post on these forums. Hi everybody!
