5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated and Underplayed., 3 Oct. 2005
This review is from: City Of Evil [Pa Version] (Audio CD)
I have to admit, ive been an avenged sevenfold fan since i heard the fantastic Waking the Fallen. The band sure do know how to write a fantastic rock song on that album, it had epic guitar riffs, crazy drumming and perfect harmonic singing.
I approached City of Evil with a sense of dread, how could A7X improve on such an awesome album, well i still havent decided whether its a better album than Waking the Fallen but im sure as hell sure that its one of the best albums on my shelf at home.
Heres a track by track review.
Beast and the Harlot - This song sets the tone for the album, insane pace, harmonic vocals and a fantastic riff. This song is a great opener.
8/10
Burn it Down
More ridiculous pace and addictive riffs. Not my favourite song but a great one nonetheless.
8/10
Blinded in the Chains
Probably my least favourite song on the album, tries too hard to sound like iron maiden, doesnt really succeed.
5/10
Bat Country
The standout song of the album, amazing guitar work, incredible vocals and a chorus so catchy you'll be humming it for days, this song deserves more attention than its getting cos its so much better than all this bullet for my valentine crap.
10/10
Trashed and Scattered
Another awesome metal song with an awesome chorus, this song needs to play the chorus more because thats what makes a great song. But it truly is an awesome song nonetheless.
10/10
Seize the Day
A great rock ballad but it could be better, a great guitar solo though. Sounds like guns and roses.
8/10
Sidewinder
It took me a few listens to get used to this one, but its now firmly one of the best songs on the album. The spanish guitar bit at the end is truly inspired. Love it!
10/10
The Wicked End
Another Maiden wannabe, does a better job than blinded in chains though. a good song overall
8/10
Strength of the World
Another ballad, drags on a bit too long but catchy vocals and a great guitar solo make this stand out.
9/10
Betrayed
The nearest thing on the album to Remenissions, my favourite Avenged song, an absolutely fantastc opening make the rest of this song seem a bit crap but still great
9/10
M.I.A
A great ballad that makes me think of medievel battles etc (although he may sing about gunshots at one point) A good anti-war song that makes for a good closing song for the album
9/10
If you like screamo/hardcore metal buy this, i guarantee you will like it, theres something for everyone.
