Biography

The members of Avenged Sevenfold were well into work on the album of their lives. Then, in an instant, their lives changed. The Rev had died. They hadn’t just lost their drummer. They’d lost a family member – a guy who was best friends with vocalist M. Shadows since second grade in the Orange County town of Huntington Beach, and with guitarist Synyster Gates since fifth ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome discovery for me 20 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
Having no prior experience of A7X, I bought this album on the strength of the single, "Almost Easy" and I wasn't disappointed. It is full of great tracks with strong, aggressive melodies, inventive guitar work and the production is crisp and clear. I think the crital comparisons with previous albums are very unfair. I subsequently bought Waking the Fallen on the strength of the A7X brand and I immediately saw the huge progression that the band has made. M. Shadows learned to sing somewhere between these records and all that silly screaming so beloved of 14 year old boys has stopped. Yes, the band has gone a lot more commercial and stadium orientated but if they hadn't, I would never have heard of them. This is one to play in the car, nice and loud. Enjoy it for what it is.

I must admit, I really enjoyed City of Evil (the precursor to this newest A7X album) but at times it did sound a bit, well, stale. However, I'm sure glad that I kept the faith and (eventually) bought this album. For my money, it's a long way beyond City of Evil.

A7X have clearly had the freedom with is record to do exactly what the heck they liked, and this shows strongly in pretty much every song. The production is of a higher quality, Matt Shadows' vocal range has improved meteorically and the whole band sounds even tighter - quite some achievement when you take into account the very highly polished production on "City..."

Still, we are not here to review the old album! On with the new...

The opener, "Critical Acclaim" is OK, not the best, but is immediately followed by "Almost Easy", the first single from teh album, which is rife with top notch riffs and some fantastic drumming, coupled with a big anthemic chorus - what's not to like? Scream and Afterlife follow the trend and call to mind classic-era Metallica in some moments, then "Gunslinger" slows it all down with a kind of wild-west themed ballad showcasing the band's Country leanings but does it well. Next standout track is "Little Piece Of Heaven" which conveys an overwhelming sense of Danny Elfman - a very progressive track even so, with some really great flourishes and catchy choruses - could work very well live, or could die on it's butt. But I like it anyway. Album closer, "Dear God" is an unashamed country power ballad in the classic bay-area sleaze style but it works really well.

If anything, this record is slight more immediate than City Of Evil, but I can attest that it stands up very well to repeat listening.

I've been listening to this album for a while now, and I'll admit at first I didn't really like it and felt a little disappointed, after a few more listens I started to like it.. and now I love the thing!

Its very different to the previous albums, being self produced, I feel its the exact sound A7X are looking for in this point of time. Although I love the album, I feel that the rest of the world aren't going to be as accepting.. Each song offers something different and original, especially "A Little Peace of Heaven", which is my favourite track (Also my friends love it, and they hate Avenged Sevenfold!). It sounds very much like Pinkly Smooth, and is pretty epic and very catchy. It just feels A7X have said "**** the critics, we'll make OUR CD", which is brave move especially with the commercial success of City of Evil, it could have been easy to release an album full of radio rock.

The album opens with 'Critical Acclaim', a song which has been around on the internet for a while now, which is a great opener, which includes the drummer (The Rev) on the chorus vocals to great effect, then the album breaks into 'Almost Easy', a metallica-esque stomper and 1st single off the record, with its warped guitar and pounding drums. The next song is 'Scream' (Another personal favourite), with a great chorus and heavy feel. After that brings 'Afterlife', which sounds very much like A7X from City Of Evil, with a really damn fast solo! Next up is 'Gunslinger' - A ballad of sorts, starting out with an acoustic intro, and then bringing in the heavy guitars, another favourite, definitely gives "Seize The Day" from City of Evil a run for its money, complete with a pretty cheesey guitar solo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive 17 July 2008
By Sarah
Format:Audio CD
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.
