    Outstanding For Avenged, but not for New Comers...

    Posted

    If you've hears any rescent Avenged sevenfold, such as there self titles, or City of Evil. you may think you know what your getting yourself into. the answer to that assumption is you are and your not. what your Gonna hear is a Tribute to Rev, Avenged Sevenfolds past drummer. This Album Is quite frankly there most emotional album yet, taking you through the twists and turns as previous albums, but with more anger, more sorrow, and more Mike Portney. Im not going to Spoil anything for Fans or Lovers of Avenged, but i will say that you wont be wasting your money at all, and you'll definatly hear 5 of there best songs ever on the latter half of the album, partly because of the roll Mike Portney Played as Lead drummer. For those that didnt know, Mike is the lead Drummer of Progressive metal band Dream Theater. Avenged invited him to play in rev's place, and he immediatly accepted. Because of this, The 3 progressive Metal songs found on this album Were given some Great Assistance, making there Final song of there album there best crack at the Genre yet! However, there is one downfall the Nightmare album... If your a new comer to avenged sevenfold, i cannot recomend this album for you until you've checked out previous albums. This album, unless heard after there previous albums, will throw you off and give you a distaste for there Outstanding music. If your New, Do yourself a Favor and check out there older music first.

    Great album overall

    I am definitely what you would call a hardcore A7X fan. I have listened to them since the release of Sounding the Seventh Trumpet when I was 8 years old. My favorite album is Waking the Fallen by far. Now for the review. I honestly think the closest sounding album to this they have done is Diamonds in the Rough. It reminds me of that album the most. There is elements of self-titled and City of Evil though. Honestly, I hate City of Evil. I think it is probably their worst album, but the album "Nightmare" definitely has a lot of similar qualities to it. This is a great album if you love Avenged Sevenfold. If you like City of Evil or Self-titled then you should definitely pick this one up. The run time is over 60 minutes, so you get your money's worth. I rate this an excellent when comparing it to all types of music out there, but for Avenged Sevenfold I would give it a 4/5. It's not as amazing as their Self-Titled album or Waking the Fallen to me, but it's definitely a great album.

    Possibly A7X's best work.

    This is one of my favorite bands. And this album is a progressive, melodic, soulful, ride. While being all these things it is still undoubtedly the recognizable A7X sound. Nightmare kicking off the album is a classic A7X jam that you can bang your head to similar to jams like crital acclaim, bat country, and welcome to the family follows suit. Our first bit of soul and emotion comes with Dangerline similar feel to sidewinder gives you somewhat of an empathetic feel into what M. Shadows is wailing about. Then So Far Away follows up with more soul being about the late Rev. You can really feel the groups grief within the music of losing a dear lifelong friend. Other highlights include: tonight the world dies, fiction, and the mammoth closer, save me. Perfect way to end this outstanding record in my opinion. The album as a whole has a great flow that keeps the listnener interested through out the 70+ minutes. This band ability to mix metal jams, ballads, and lengthy compostions in al the right places is a talent that other groups need to take notes on. Variety is the spice of life to albums that break the 40 min rule. Nightmare is a wellcrafted piece of music showcasing the progressive metal side of A7X.

    Reviews are Overblown

    I should state for the record that I am a big Avenged Sevenfold fan, but these reviews give this album way too much credit. It it certainly not their best album and in no way one of the greatest of all time as one review stated. In my opinion, the undeserved high praise in these reviews comes from dedicated fans that would buy and give great reviews to anything Avenged Sevenfold released. Honestly, I feel this album is teetering between fair and average. The album is certainly weak and not what I've come to expect from Avenged Sevenfold. I understand wanting to write longer and more creative songs like 'Save Me' but the second half of the album is slow and outside of the scope of the band. Certain bands can pull off slower rock songs and outside of 'Seize the Day' Avenged Sevenfold hasn't proven it can. At the last Avenged Sevenfold concert I attended, I don't remember anybody requesting to hear 'Gunslinger' or 'Dear God'. Why? Because they are a rock band and people want to hear the rock. I would still recommend, barely. Now I'm going to listen to the newest Bullet for my Valentine to get my fix of metal.

    back to the basics

    i cried when i listened to the whole thing for the first time. not gonna lie. after having suffered my own tragic loss a month ago, i think the guys really tuned into what they were feeling when they wrote this and they were able to reach out in ways that far surpass their grasp in earlier albums. this album is a culmination of all of the years that the band has been together and you can hear it in every one of the tracks. it sounds like a solid combination of every one of their prior albums with lyrics that remind me of the power of city of evil and the verbal arrangement of their self titled album while the instrumental work is something that is just as raw and passionate as waking the fallen and sounding the seventh trumpet. there's no way you can call yourself a fan and not own this cd.

    Best A7X Album to Date

    This album represents the progression of A7X from a struggling metal core band to the threshold of metal history with the likes of Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. What's even more impressive in this album is the resilience of the band in the wake of The Rev's death. Some of the best songs that will be played and covered by others for years to come include "Nightmare", "Welcome to the Family", and "Fiction." Furthermore, M. Shadows' vocals on "God Hates Us" proves that his vocal surgeries did not prohibit his once signature scream.

    Their Best Yet...

    This is now my favorite album by Avenged Sevenfold, if not one of the best albums I have ever heard. The lyrics are amazing and Syn and Zacky delivers some of the best guitar work I have ever heard. Johny Christ does amazing on bass as always and Mike Portnoy delivers the drums of a god. Buy this album! I guarantee you won't regret it. RIP Jimmy. A7X for life!!!

    A Little Peace Of Heaven?

    My review is titled what it is in tribute to Jimmy. This CD is everything I could have expected and more, especially after losing The Rev. I absolutely adore these boys, and respect them for doing what they are by putting this out and touring it. The CD is amazing, So Far Away, written by Synyster Gates is heartbreaking. And Fiction (with lyrics sung by Rev himself) will bring tears to your eyes.
