5.0 out of 5 stars Wiccan Brilliance September 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Not necessarily being an actual practicer of Wiccan i have always had an interest in it and what attributes it has. Having a large background in Indian heritage i can always say i have had an obsession with forests, water, the earth, and a closeness to nature in general. This album is a brilliant masterpiece of haunting ambient beauty and basically steals your soul and doesnt give it back until the album is over. All the songs are very in depth with much emotion but each one being its own entity. Staring off with Avalon (The Goddess of the Sacred Landscape) you really get the feeling sully puts his heart into it, also with the really great female vocalist he uses, its clear to see why the song is so beautiful and effective. 7 Years being one of the strongest tracks on the record is really a great song in itself, clocking in at just under 9 minutes it has a very powerful and moving vibe to it. I'll study more into what it means but i'm pretty sure it's the death of someone close, he's dealt with for 7 years. Broken Road is a great song very reminiscent of Geoff Tates solo song "Someone Else" only without the annoying high range vocals. The song sends chills up your spine and is obviously very personal mentioning Sullies father. Great track. Sinner's Prayer is a great Indian vibed track complete with chants, and orchestra which most songs on here consist of. Sully and the female vocalist(Lisa Guyer) whom i'm not familiar with, really help round out the entire album and as i said every song is great, at first they may seem to sound the same but give it a few listens, and you'll be hooked. I was on the first few listens, but since i only got it yesterday, its still fresh to me, will it stay that way? I'm sure of it. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Avalon is a breath of fresh air! Great vibes!!! September 15, 2010
By Dugula
Format:Audio CD
I really like this cd. It shows Sully's real love and natural instinct for music. I read his insert about music and it reminded me of my feelings toward music. As a fellow drummer, I love ALL kinds of music, and think that it is neccessary to explore different "moods" and "soul feelings". I am also a Godsmack fan, my wife usually walks out of the room when I put them on, last night we both sat through this whole cd and loved it. I look forward to listening to this for many years to come. Thanks to Sully and all that are part of making this. I look forward to more like this from him!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Bliss......Sully Erna style. September 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I had read quite a bit about this solo release and how anticipated it was. Having been a Godsmack fan since day 1 and having experienced all of their amazing live performances on DVD, I was really chomping at the bit waiting for the release of "Avalon". With this CD Sully has taken everything that makes Godsmack what they are and simply stripped it all bare. Now don't be mistaken , this is not a rock record, far from it in fact. It's the voice but there is just so much more on offer here. The vocal talents of Sully and guest vocalist Lisa Guyer are simply breathtaking, interwoven with the tribal rhythms at play and the amazing cello and percussion courtesy of classically trained cellist Irina Chirkova, and percussionist Niall Gregory of Dead Can Dance. Each song becomes a journey and the entire album is complex musically but very listenable. Apparently Sully has featured some tracks off "Avalon" in his solo live performances throughout 2008 and 2009. So, if you like your music broad and have an open mind beyond the realms of rock or metal, this is for you. If you are expecting a downtuned Godsmack record, look elsewhere, but hey, it's still Sully Erna and his amazing voice is worth at least a listen....and no doubt once that happens..... you'll wanna buy "Avalon".

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Magick November 4, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The solo work of my brother in spirit, Sully Erna, is one of most beautiful works of Pagan/Wiccan musical art that I've hard to date. It is a truly inspiring album, and a must listen for all who are practioners of the ancient religion. I listen to Avalon during my daily mundane routines, as well as during my more spiritual moments. On a scale of 1-10, I give Avalon a 15!

5.0 out of 5 stars better than you'd expect September 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
i was a godsmack fan during the earlier years. i didn't find their latest album "oracle" all that great. and they left out a "voodoo" style song int he album too that just kinda bummed me out. however, his more acoustic songs seemed to be mcuh more interesting for me on the earlier albums. with this in mind, his latest solo album seems to be actually quite nice. it feels like it's the "oracles" better half. it relaly does compliment his metal music after hearing the darker side of things. it sounded like the lead singer of godsmack put alot of time and effort into this solo album as well. lots of, inspiring and what some would say "depressing", tunes here that i just love haha. it really did surprise me at how well the lyrics and the melodies are put together in this album compaired to some of his other work. and my fave off the album would have to be "eye's of a child". seriously, pick it up if ur a smack fan or just looking for some deep thinking music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it IS that good!!! September 26, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I'll start off my review saying that I didn't even know this was coming out. Last week, I was looking for Godsmack's release from earlier this year, but I stumbled upon Avalon and noticed it had just come out earlier in the week. I previewed the tracks and by the third track's sample, I bought it (on iTunes, but that's another story). I didn't even have to listen to the rest.

As it started to download, I had a moment of buyer's remorse. "What did you just do??? It couldn't be that good." By the time the previews had finished, even though I had only heard bits and pieces, I knew my instincts were right on the money.

I am a casual Godsmack fan, by no means a fanatic, but I do like them a lot. I don't think liking Godsmack is a requirement to love this one. The style is sufficiently different from Godsmack, while at the same time familiar. I don't agree with the one lukewarm reviewer that only Godsmack fans will enjoy this record. For one thing, this is not a metal record, nor is it hard rock. It's still rock. It's mellower musically... but at the same time, it is sung from the heart and with power.

This is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Every other review you'll read here (except for one, but hey, there's always someone that doesn't get it) got it right. It is an epic. The songs are textured and rich. The vocals are perfect, and "Until Then..." may be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. This is an outstanding solo effort and I really hope that this one catches on because it would be a tragedy if it didn't. People need to hear this one.
