    Avenged Sevenfold

    Yes I took it from the air, what do you think about A7X (Avenged Sevenfold)?

    From my side, one of the best bands at the very moment. They started when they were between the age of 15 and 18 - and made awesome music.
    I'm not a fan of "american teenager wannabe metal music screamo \m/ yo"-music, but A7X took my heart.
    I was watching Iron Maiden live two years ago, and then A7X warmed up for Maiden, wow, what an awesome band.

    What do you think about a7x? I've never really seen any a7x fans, but hey, if you don't like that kind of music.. give it a shot. Even the teenager girls in my class listen to it. Lol. :-[

    A few good hits;
    A7X - Afterlife

    A7X - Critical Acclaim (live LBC):

    A7X - Unholy Confessions (live LBC):

    What do you think about them? What do you not like about them? And which soundtrack did you like the best?

    Anyways, R.I.P. Jimmy Sullivan. :'(

    Haha sorry. Gunslinger ftw, yes. How about Girl I Know, I Won't See You Tonight pt. 1?

    Anyway, I think he'll do very well, he's an awesome drummer, but he is a bit overaged.. 42 years old, isn't he? :P (cba to wiki him) - he plays in Dream Theatre, enough said. :P

    foREVer, will be the next album.. can't wait!!!

    Saw them in Gothenburg 2008 when they opened for Iron Maiden. Was not impressed at all

    A little peice of heaven
    Lost
    Dear God
    Unbound
    Trashed and Scattered
    MIA
    Beast and the Harlot
    Strength of the World

    Great band for sure, my favorites would have to be Sidewinder, MIA, and Bat Country.

    I feel like guitarist Brian Haner has an advantage - mostly because his dad played with guitar and musical god, Frank Zappa. The guitar playing is amazing on some of the earlier tracks. My one complaint is that I can't stand the vocalist

    Im not really into their earlier stuff. But its good!

    Ye, portnoy is around that age, but that doesn't hurt! Saw Dream Theater in Sweden recently, he could keep the crowd happy with drumsolos while the electricity was out!

    Saw them opening for Maiden in Stockholm two years ago. I'd never really been into them, but they made a decent warmup, even got the front rows shouting a bit.
    That said, I'm still not really into them. They have a couple of good songs, but they just don't really click with my music taste.
    Mike Portnoy is old at 42? The guys in Maiden are all past 50, and they're not hurting a lot from their age (except for Bruce not reaching as high as he used to). I think Mike can keep on playing for a long time yet. I hope him helping A7X won't interfere with DT, though.

    Re: Avenged Sevenfold

    Not a fan. Probably because people classify them as 'heavy metal' which is far from it IMO. More like Screamo or some other lame genre you would lump 30 Seconds to Mars, Bullet for my Valentine, Atreyu, and such in.

    Those bands I could live w/o

    Re: Avenged Sevenfold

    They're the best band ever! I got all of their CD's!! They might come to Iceland! And about the foREVer cd, that was just a fan made name for it, the name has yet to be revealed.

    Thanks for this awesome signature tazsar!
