I didn't think I liked metal, but I have been proven very wrong by this album. A7X have just the right balance of heavy guitars, awesome solos and epic choruses to merit this album being put on repeat for a week. M Shadows has a powerful voice that fits the music perfectly and the music itself is brilliant. It's nice to listen to something that doesn't just use a few power chords, but is actually impressive musically.
Afterlife has to be my favourite track with that melodic chorus, but none of the tracks on this album are weak. I notice that some people have pointed out A Little Piece of Heaven. It's the sort of song that you know you shouldn't like, sounding like a cross between gaming music, a power ballad and an orchestral piece, but there's no denying that it's as catchy as hell and that you love it really.
In short, whether you're a fan of metal or not, give this album a go because it's pretty damn amazing.
