Best Album EVER!!!
I love this album more than any other album, I love all A7X's music but this is the best. My list for the albums are...
1.Waking the Fallen (The best album they have ever made.)
2.City of Evil (Everything about this album is awesome but Waking the Fallen just barely edges this one out.)
3. Avenged Sevenfold (This was a close one with City of Evil but I think City of Evil is better.)
4. Diamonds in the rough (This is a great album. It's surprisingly good for being a b-side album.
5. Hail to the King (This album is a good album. Not as good as the others but people have to remember it's a tribute to the people who inspired them.)
6.Nightmare (Don't know why there is so much either love or hate on this album, It is good but not even close to their greatest.)
7.Sounding the seventh trumpet(didn't like this one very much, they did a much better job with Waking the Fallen.)
Waking the Fallen 8/10. I can't really judge this song as an actual song because it is too short too count as one. It is a great intro though with very dark harmonics which sound really good to start an album. Unholy Confessions 9/10. I like every song on the album and this song is really good, it's a very memorable song.. It has great guitar riffs and great vocals. Chapter Four 9/10. I absolutely love this song, The guitar riffs are excellent and the vocals are amazing. It is how a lot of people started listening to A7X. Remissions 9/10. Amazing song! It was my favorite song on this album for a while. Great acoustic guitar and the M. Shadows has an amazing voice in this song, such as this part "A good friend once told me you are memories, without them we equal nothing!" Desecrate through reverance 8/10. This song is awesome but there are some songs better in my opinion. It has some great vocals in some parts, I feel like you have to grow to this song because there is a lot of hard screaming. It also has the most awesome beginning intro riff ever (it reminds me of the intro from save me.). Eternal Rest 8/10. Awesome song, it has the best intro ever and has awesome vocals and has very good guitar parts in the middle of it and I like how the whole pace of the song completely changes in the middle of the song. Second Heartbeat 9/10. This song my third favorite of this album and even though I like live in the LBC version better( I would give that a 10/10), this song is amazing. The beginning guitar is unforgettable, it has so many wonderful moments of M. Shadows' vocals and so many notable guitar parts, and the ending solo is just so awesome. Radiant Eclipse 8/10. This song is great too. I love how the electronic beginning slides in with the hard riffs and wonderful vocals. I won't see you tonight pt.1 10/10. This is tied for my favorite song of this album, and may very well be my favorite song ever. Everything about this song is just amazing, it is a great ballad, the piano intro is just amazing, the guitar solo in the beginning is outstanding, and the vocals are the best in the album(have I mentioned M. Shadows is my favorite singer.). You really have to appreciate music- and I don't mean appreciate rock music, I mean appreciate true orchestral music- in order to like this song. I won't see you tonight pt. 2 7/10. This is my least favorite song in the album. It has some notable vocals. It's still a decent song though. Clairvoyant Disease 10/10. I absolutely love this song, This is tied for first with I won't see you tonight pt.1. First of all, this is the most underrated song A7X has ever made, Second, most people don't understand the true genius behind this song. It has great vocals and it basically started a lot of songs in the future. If you listen really well the intro sounds like unbound, and it started the synthesized trumpet for a little piece of heaven, also in one part, it sounds like nightmare. I feel that most people are going to like this song more than my other favorite song because it is more hard riffs and metal than the other one. And all things will end 8/10. I believe out of all there albums this is the best one to end an album. It has great vocals and guitar riffs, and the ending solo is awesome because it starts with a normal solo and then becomes very distorted and then it finally stops, and then the drums stop and then the album ends. For most of the album if you don't really like screaming you just have to keep on listening to this because you get more and more used to it. I hope my review was helpful.
