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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply one of the great metal albums of all time February 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Resume:
I have been listening to metal of all kinds faithfully for the past 16 years since I was hooked by Maiden and Metallica. I moved on to Slayer, Dream Theater, Overkill, King's X. Then on to Fear Factory, Paradise Lost, Iced Earth, Therion, Morbid Angel, At the Gates, In Flames, Cradle of Filth, Nevermore, Nightwish, Saviour Machine, Shadows Fall, etc., etc., etc. You get the picture. I played in a band, I have seen dozens of bands in concert, I own over 700 metal CDs, I hosted a metal radio show for 4 years, I have defended modern metal to my (classic rock, stoner rock, top 40, dance, etc.) friends. I am not trying to be holier than thou, MY POINT IS:
Review:
"Waking the fallen" ranks up there with whatever your classics are. Period. I'm talking top 5 material. It is a "genre-buster" that is bound to unite fans like Guns n Roses did with AFD or Queensryche did with Mindcrime or Slayer did with Reign in Blood. I had a friend who couldn't stand Queensryche but when asked about Operation:Mindcrime, he said "Awesome, one of the best records ever." This is the type of impact this album can have. As with those 3 examples, where Waking the Fallen ends up on your list depends on your tastes.
The first track I heard was "Unholy Confessions" and I loved the Swedish melodic death opening, then was blown away when I heard the clean vocals. By the time the song was 1 minute old, I knew I had to have it. When the punk/pop chorus hit, I knew I was hearing something special. That song continued to weave in and out of genres seamlessly - almost getting better with every second. And when it was over, I had withdrawl. Funny thing is, it turns out to be one of the "weakest" songs on the album!

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a kid, the site won't process the other review form, so I turned to this as an alternative

Avenged Sevenfold is an amazing metal band. They're somewhat nu-metal, with blends of classic metal riffs and mordern harcore. Having said that, Avenged Sevenfolds newest album, Waking the Fallen is ingenious and a clever work of music. Their music is dark, yet uplifting. To give their music that uplifting quality, they obviously have to go emo, but rest assure they stayed away from it. It's a little bit of emo, mixed with some scremo, stirred up just right, so their music can be described as a perfect balance between being to emotional and being too hardcore. They sort of look like the band AFI but rock with the power of Iron Maiden. Don't let their age fool you either, they have very intelligent and mature lyrics. They aren't one of those many bands out there. These guys are unique. Sort of that sweet and sick mix with many bands fail to perfect. Avenged Sevenfold isn't only for metalheads, most of their tracks on the cd can be enjoyed by almost anyone with a good taste for "music" in general. Their lyrics and vocals are poetic and have a deep meaninging within them. These guys are bottom line brilliant !

Let me walk you through the tracks and describe them briefly -:

1. Waking the Fallen - The band starts out this soft, kind of jamming session with ere'ey and suspensful music playing and soft vocals. It impolres the user to "Wake the ones and rise tonight". A perfect setting while going into the fast paced Unholy confessions. Ingenious, and a perfect start off setting ! 10/10

2. Unholy Confessions - One of the best songs in their album. It is an instantly likeable track, and you will get hooked on it almost immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waking The Fallen April 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The music scene nowadays is very disappointing. There is hardly anything out there that is worth buying anymore. It is very rare that a band comes out that actually impresses me. Avenged Sevenfold has done just that.

I can't get over just how great this band is. They combine elements in rock and metal music to create an assault of razor sharp riffs within a massive wall of sound. The guitarists are the main players on this record. They demonstrate their solo skills with perfection. The lead work is a force to be reckoned with. The song writing is also very interesting. You'll be jamming to an almost black metal assualt of vocals and guitars and it will suddenly turn into a disco beat (Eternal Rest). A lot of these songs hit the six minute mark, but always remain interesting and fun. Do yourself a favor and check these guys out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pedal to the Hardcore Metal. April 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
What the members of Avenged Sevenfold have crafted here is an incredibly aggressive, loud, and technically impressive album; one that just fills you with energy and makes you want to punt babies over houses. It's quite long, over an hour, but it never lets up.

It starts out with a cool, slow paced build-up of an intro, which leads to a kick-in-the-pants of a first actual song. The singer screams at the top of his lungs as he is supported by pounding drums and bass and killer guitars, and Waking the Fallen never lets up after that. This album is full of great hardcore sounds, especially on tracks like "Eternal Rest"

But the vocalist can do more than just shout himself hoarse, he can also sing, surprisingly. This comes out the most in "I Won't See You Tonight - Part 1", an incredible song that eschews hardcore antics for a beautiful, epic melody with relatively thoughtful lyrics about suicide. The track clocks in at around 9 minutes and is part of a larger 14 minute, 2 part behemoth of a song. Like I said, it's a long album, and if you like this kind of stuff, it is definitely worth it.

Every song on Waking the Fallen is good, but except for a couple like "I Won't See You Tonight", they all sound pretty similar and you can lose track of where one ends and another begins. But if that's something you can handle, you can't get much better metal today. 4.5 stars rounds up to 5.
