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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Waking The Mind 14 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Im not going to beat around the bush, this is one of the greatest albums I have ever heard. EVER! 'What makes it so good?!' I hear you cry. Well, to put it simply, its one of those albums where you don't have to skip to the good bits, because its ALL good. Many albums these days are made up of a few great songs amongst a collection of tiring fillers. Not here. Every track is a classic and every track is different.
A7X are incredibly talented musicians (guitarist Synyster Gates being the prime example) and singer M.Shadows voice is so varied you would think they have about 4 singers. One second he is belting out note-perfect melodies, the next he screams paint off the walls, the next he delivers a bone crunching roar. The variation is the foremost feature of this album. It encompasses styles like Slayer's thrash, Hatebreed's breakdowns, Cradle Of Filth's screams, Finch's singing, Metallica's solos and AFI's emotion. There really is something for everyone.
Beginning with the atmospheric intro 'Waking The Fallen' which leads straight into the first single 'Unholy Confessions' and then 'Chapter Four', two easily accessible songs to suck you in. Once you're hooked track 4 'Remenissions' and 5 'Desecrate Through Reverence' will lock you in for good. Its an epic journey of hardcore, emo, punk, gothcore and straight guitar skill; true stadium classics. Following this 'Eternal Rest' rips your f**king eyes out with blistering thrash solos, a Metallica-esque riff, an epic gothic chorus and breakdowns to make Hatebreed soil themselves in fear.
If your ears haven't melted yet live favourite 'Second Heartbeat' and 'Radiant Eclipse' blow you away with their epic proportions (both approx. 7mins), skillful drumming and sing-ability. Following this you have what is essentially a 15min song.

Buy this album now if you dont already have it

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year-no doubt!!! 21 Sep 2003
By Jim S.
Format:Audio CD
An absolutely awesome album, Avenged have blown most other albums of this year out of the water with Waking The Fallen. From the beatdowns and shreiking riffs of Unholy Confessions to the flamenco guitars of Reminissions to the piano ballad of I Won't See You Tonight, this is the kind of album that you would really, really, really love for Maiden and Metallica to have made this year. Solos, screaming, soaring melodic vocals and dark lyrics all get thrown into the pot, creating something new and original. Think AFI,The Misfits, Megadeth, Judas Priest and Bad Religion jamming together and you ain't even close. Amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars IMMENSE 16 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I only recently descovered Avenged Sevenfold, with their current album City Of Evil, which is an amazing album and this. I must admit at first i did prefer the former, but this album has grown on me so much that I definately feel it is Avenged Sevenfolds best.
One of the things i like most about the album is the way it has been put together, as it is not just a random order, it is clear that it is something that has been given a lot of thought. First of all we have the intro setting the mood for the album, which then launches into the quiker more aggresive traks to begin with, getting slower and more melodic throughout the album, with the exeption of I Won't See You Tonight Part 2 which still effortlessly fits in after the first part.
One of the other great points about this band is their variation, ranging from harsh screaming tracks with powerful riffs, to piano ballads and everything in between! The tracks are easily distinguishible, and it does not appear as one big musical mess as some albums of similar genres do. Across this wide range, my personal favourates on the album would have to be I Won't See You tonight Part 1 for its beautiful singing, guitar work and everything about it, Unholy Confessions for its ridiculusly catchy riff and Clairvoyant Desiese for the superb solo and chorus.
Be warned however, that if you have heard City Of Evil, this is a very differnt, harsher sounding, heavier Avenged Sevenfold do not expect for it to be too similar. Enough of me rambling on about it though, i urge you to go and hear it for yourself! Go buy...Now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best Metal album of 2003 15 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
A great deal of praise has come the way of these young men recently, and believe me, it’s more than warranted. This album was one of the big surprises of last year because it came out of seemingly nowhere to blow away virtually everyone who heard it. In a year which saw the release of both 'St Anger' and 'Dance Of Death' by Metallica and Iron Maiden respectively, the two biggest bands in the genre, this previously unheralded outfit put out this frankly unbelievable record and mopped up the floor with the big boys. The band themselves may look like a bunch of kids all dressed up to look like a Misfits-era Glenn Danzig, but by God can they play Metal! As has been mentioned in other reviews previous to this one, the band can certainly mix up their styles and play anything that they put their minds to, a fact best demonstrated on the 9 minute long epic ‘I Won’t See You Tonight part 1’. With their ability to incorporate different genres within a framework of Heavy Metal, A7X are probably second only to the mighty Opeth, and as any fans of the genius Swedes will tell you, that’s no faint praise. But I digress. I would recommend this to literally anyone with an interest in any form of modern Metal music because there’s something for everyone here. You can hear elements from many bands in Avenged Sevenfold’s music, but the comparisons which are thrown up most often tend to be Metallica, Iron Maiden and AFI. This is fair, especially the Maiden comparison (just check out those melodic lead breaks) but there’s a hell of a lot more to them than being a mere tribute band. There are strong aspects of the New England Hardcore scene (KSE especially) and sundry other things. It combines to produce one of the best proper Metal albums of last year. Read more ›
