4.0 out of 5 stars Good! but..., 30 Aug 2013

This review is from: Hail To The King (Audio CD)
I love Avenged Sevenfold, and before now I have literally never been able to fault them. They've always had there own creative, almost unique sound which has made them themselves, and made them so noticeable and a great metal band. Now, I know a7x are well-known for each album being a massive change to the previous one they released, but this time I think they took it a bit too far. In my opinion this is no longer Avenged Sevenfold, it is Metallic mixed with a bit of Iron Maiden. And by that I mean it's almost like they've tried to copy those bands as much as is possible without using the exact riffs/melodies/grooves as Metallica themselves. This Means War, and Crimson Day are, in my opinion scarily close to Metallica's Sad But True and Nothing Else Matters.

Having said this however, I do still like this album! The songs are catchy, heavy, grooving, and filled with energy. I just feel that the band may have taken a backwards step in terms of their creativity, seeing as 'there own sound' which makes them them, is no longer there. Though there is no doubt that there popularity will sore with this release, surely will head the up a definite road of joining the pre-mentioned Metallica as one of the greatest metal bands of all time,certainly of this generation!

So in summary, it is well worth getting!! Just be prepared, any long term, old school A7X fans (like myself)...your in for a shock. If you haven't already heard the album...this will not be what you were expecting.
