Biography

The members of Avenged Sevenfold were well into work on the album of their lives. Then, in an instant, their lives changed. The Rev had died. They hadn’t just lost their drummer. They’d lost a family member – a guy who was best friends with vocalist M. Shadows since second grade in the Orange County town of Huntington Beach, and with guitarist Synyster Gates since fifth ...

Editorial Reviews

While headlining the Rockstar Taste Of Chaos tour earlier this year, Avenged Sevenfold (aka A7X) taped its full, incendiary April 10 homecoming gig at the Long Beach Arena. Now Avenged Sevenfold issues a DVD of that concert plus a CD featuring previously unreleased songs and covers (including Iron Maiden and Pantera) recorded during the sessions for last year's #4 charting, near-gold self titled album. Vengeance is sweet with this metallic CD+DVD package.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm blown away. September 16, 2008
By Ben
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard about this CD/DVD release from Avenged Sevenfold, I was pretty excited, but I wouldn't have expected something this great in a hundred years. Not only does A7X show that they are still capable of writing excellent music (possibly my favorite since Waking the Fallen) on the CD portion of this release, but they also demonstrate their ability to put on one hell of a live show on the DVD.

DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH (CD)
To put it simply, the B-sides kick. Hard. Waking the Fallen fans will salivate over many of the riffs. Fans of City of Evil and the self-titled album will love the vocals. Everyone will enjoy the solos, and no one will be able resist headbanging to the Rev's drum onslaught. The two covers are great, though I'd give Flash of the Blade (Iron Maiden) a slight edge over Walk (Pantera). Shadows seemed to be trying too hard to imitate Phil Anselmo on the latter track, rather than sticking to his own style. Also, the alternate version of Almost Easy is essentially the same as the final album version, except it has an added vocal fill. The alternate version of Afterlife, on the other hand, has a couple of significantly different background riffs/violins going on almost throughout the song.

The negative thing I can say for the B-sides is that Demons, the opener, is about 2 minutes too long, and Tension is nothing special, but aside from the flaws on those two tracks everything sounds awesome.

LIVE IN THE LBC (DVD)
The first thought that comes to my mind is "could this possibly be the best live DVD ever?" but I've seen so many good ones I'm not sure I can honestly say this is THE definitive concert Dvd, though it is up there. In any case, this one will have you running around the room moshing and swatting at invisible deathbats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, a good kick in the butt for any A7X hater September 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This release simply shows what A7X is made of and how they throw it all to the fans in the concerts... in the cover of walk, M. shadows picks a fan from the crowd to sing the whole song... that was so cool, after wards they let him on stage for the rest of the show. The video quality is good and the sound kicks. This is A7X and how they give a good show. the bonus cd with b sides is really loud as well, cool covers and songs by them. Even the cover of Iron Maiden Flash of the blade A7X style, and let me tell you as a fan of IM, they really got it rocking there. If you are a fan and like city and self titled don't hesitate, this'll blow you away. For some back in the day fans they play second heartbeat and unholy confessions on the dvd. Really worth the buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! August 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
DVD is amazing! These guys put on a great show with awesome lighting and pyrotechnics. Just watch it, you'll love it, trust me!
CD is a lot better than expected as well. How some of these songs weren't considered worthy enough for their other cd's suprises me. All have that distict A7X sound with some great guitar solos as always. The only two I can skip through are the two remakes, "Walk" by Pantera and "Flash of the Blade" by Iron Maiden. "Walk" is a great song, just too overplayed by all bands. A7X does do a great job on it though. "Flash of the Blade" just sounds a little corny for them to be doing, lyrics talking about swords and dragons............
All in all, an absolutely great purchase. I would have paid twice this amount for the DVD alone. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concert..a must have for A7X fans out there October 30, 2008
By M. Mohd
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm above 40 and in a league of older rock bands such as AC/DC, Skid Row, Metallica, Dio.

This new rock band really rock me out when I first heard their album by chance... played from one of the record store at my place.

This DVD and CD is definitely not a waste of your dollar spent...if you are hardcore fan of this band like me..

hope this band would one day (in the next twenty years) become one of the legend bands as above..

5.0 out of 5 stars A7X In Their Prime October 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This DVD, which was taken from a headlining show during the 2008 Taste of Chaos tour, shows Avenged Sevenfold at their peak. They've truly hit their stride as musicians and performers with this DVD. All the songs sound great. M. Shadows voice held up remarkably well. The only downside is that you will want to hear more songs. Songs like "Chapter Four" and "I Won't See You Tonight", which sound amazing live, are not on this DVD. I would've liked to have seen "Beast & the Harlot" removed and have one of the other songs mentioned beforehand replace it.

As far as the "Diamonds in the Rough" CD is concerned, don't think that it's an amateur attempt to boost DVD sales by throwing in a couple of songs that didn't make any other "official" A7X release. Any of these songs could have easily been on their last self titled album. For me, the high points on the album were tracks 5 and 6: "Until the End" and "Tension." It's a good album overall and combined with the DVD makes it worth the buy for old and new fans alike.

The Best Songs on City of Evil
By far, Burn It Down is THE BEST song on City of Evil. I think City of Evil is the best A7X cd though, so every song is awesome. Sidewinder, Wicked End, and strength of the world are up there in my favorites too
