I just wanted to take the time, again, to inform all you lovelies out there about a CD that could possibly change your life as much as it has changed mine. This CD is the newest, and also Self-Titled, album by Avenged Sevenfold.
This CD has ALOT going for it, but first before you stop reading this I just want to say something. I HATE Avenged Sevenfold’s other albums. Sounding of the Seventh Trumpet, Waking the Fallen, and most of City of Evil. Never was a huge fan of them at all. Jordan Litt knows how much I hated these guys. I still think those CD’s are terrible to this day. I know you might have not liked them just as much as I did, but give this CD a chance. You’ll be happy you did. Now let’s continue…
(Sorry about the last paragraph… Lots of A7X haters out there)
It’s really hard to describe this album as it is so flexible and diverse that it’s really hard to classify it as one genre. One thing is for sure, they are a metal band. So almost all of the songs are driven by loud, crunching, and distorted guitars. Crazy lead guitar riffs litter every song and really show off the talents behind their instruments. That’s pretty much where it ends. From then on it depends on which song you decide to listen to… Which song you choose will determine what kind of song experience you will have.
All songs have their own personality. Example…
Almost Easy – Heaviest song on the album with balls to the wall metal from start to finish. It bleeds attitude.
Dear God – A catchy old school country tune. When I say country, I mean it!
A Little Piece Of Heaven – Orchestral epic. 8 minutes of disturbing horns, woodwinds, pipes, and cringe worthy lyrics.
I will leave it there. I know it’s an bit of an extreme cliff hanger… But this CD needs to be heard to be understood.
Get it and enjoy the 10 track master piece by Avenged Sevenfold.

Hey Nich. This is Purkinje from EBA….
I’ve never been a metalcore fan. Sure, I listen to a few bands that I feel break from the norm (The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero, and I guess BTBAM could be considered part metalcore too), but other than those select few, I don’t care for anything else. A7X is mostly in the group I don’t care too much for musically. I listen to them mainly from nostalgia of my high school years….
My biggest gripe about this post is that (in my opinion) many of the musical traits you rave over about A7X’s s/t album are executed much
better in their previous album, City of Evil. In specific, The Wicked End is their most epic track, and certainly more epic than A Little Piece Of Heaven….
