Avenged Sevenfold's influence passed through my music taste a few years ago, but still I find myself intrigued whenever they bring out new material, so, around once a year I still put a new Avenged Sevenfold on the speakers and see whats new.

The first notable thing is that this is the first album where Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan's influence is no where; he was such a huge influence on the music you can hear that loss of input. I think it was remarkable that the band carried on after such a massive loss, both musically and emotionally. They did, and this album once again marks another change in their musical style.

I wasn't that impressed when hearing the single for the first time as it didn't feel like it was painting the right picture for the album; it was painfully simple, not very dynamic and just very formulaic. After giving the whole album a listen it was clear there was much more to it than the single promised.

It opens with 'Shepherd of Fire'. A very dark, moody baritone brass intro mirroring the chords and a thudding drum riff. This song sets the tone for the rest of the album and reveals straight away how much this album is influenced by previous legendary metal bands.

After 'Hail to the King' comes 'Doing Time', probably one of the weakest on the album, it really is quite forgettable, even a stylish Slash/Dimebag hybrid of a solo can't really save it.

'This Means War' is unashamedly a direct descendant of Metallica's 'Sad But True', from every element possible: drum, guitar and lyrical timing. Thats not to say it isn't an enjoyable song, and a couple of underlying guitar harmonies do colour the song nicely and the solo is not a Hammett rip-off at least.

I guess I should say from the beginning that I like this album. It is 'solid' across the board, and certainly has enough going on to be interesting and invite repeat listens. Nonetheless, as a number of other reviewers have noted, both here and in magazines, Avenged Sevenfold here wear their influences on their sleeves, and so strongly do these influences emerge, there is the unavoidable feeling that the band have lost their own sense of identity. It is difficult not to listen to the tracks on offer and not find yourself thinking of them as each paying tribute a band formative for AX7, song titles moving aside for the thought of 'ah, this must be the Maiden Song' or 'hmm - sounds a bit like Sad but True, must be the Metallica song'. Overall a listenable album, but rarely offering anything fresh.

This band seem to be real love them or hate them material; I have to say I was REALLY surprised. Decent songs, very good musicianship and stellar production make for a good package. Yes they may be derivative and the influences are worn with pride; Maiden, Metallica, Guns n Roses, Motley Crue, ACDC etc but at least they're honest about it!!

Its a great sounding album with a production job reminiscent of Metallica's 1991 album. Everything is clean, clear & defined; the snare drums and bass guitar sounding just like Hetfield & co did back then, the guitars & vocals crystal clear too. Its just good solid mid tempo metal and I cant fault it for that!! It doesn't always have to be extreme.

And of course the symphonic touches & orchestrations are very welcome too, never overused but really adding to the already tasty brew being served. Planets is a great example for this.

And so what if This Means War sounds like Sad But True; its hardly as if Metallica never plagiarised along the way or anyone else for that matter - frankly Led Zeppelin built a career on it.

This album is a step in a different direction for Avenged Sevenfold, especially without the Rev's unique song-writing style. As a fan of 80's/90's metal, I absolutely love this album. It is great music to put on just to rock out, or as background music. I'm not sure if the new songs will bring as great a reaction live as their old music, as the change in direction has polarised a lot of fans. It is admittedly a very stripped back album, but it's simplicity is one of the reasons I enjoy listening to it so much. The influence of Metallica, as well as Iron Maiden, is more evident here than on their previous albums, which seemed to draw more inspiration from bands such as Pantera. As a bass player, I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed playing along to this album, and I am sure that any musician would really enjoy doing this too. Thanks to Amazon, I managed to buy this album for £6 on a one-day offer, so thank you very much for fantastic value- this will be in my CD player for a very long time!

After purchasing and enjoying all but the first of their releases I could not believe my ears when I heard this one?
It is not merely a homage to Metallica and gnr but sounds almost like they are covering these bands originals.
I had reasonably high expectations but cannot now bring myself to play this anymore. It is quite obvious that not all agree with me as this shot to number one in its first week?
Am hoping now that they have gotten this out of their systems and return with more original sounding compositions.
