- I think A7X ( avenged sevenfold)'s best album is Sounding The Seventh Trumpet
- I think the same
what every 12-16 year old listens to to be cool cause all of their friends listen to it when really its just the drummer having a seizure while the guitarist tunes to drop d and hits the 6-4th strings over and over again while the bassist takes a nap and the singer screams at the top of his puny emo lungs without even bothering to put out any words of any sort.
kids usually only listen to bands such as this due to their friends' poor taste in music while if they actually tried to think freely they would most likely enjoy actual metal bands such as obituary, morbid angel, november's doom, pestilence, death, cannibal corpse (1980's-90's), and others.
guy listening to avenged sevenfold alone: Wtf is this shit?!
kid listening to a7x with all his a7x friends in all their a7x hot topic gear: hey this is totally core dude!
I. - (Aven-ged' Seven-fold; noun) A terrific band that receives very "little" praise from the rock fanbase. They are--with a doubt--metal/rock. Such songs, like Desecrate Through Reverence, or Clairvoyant Disease (their best songs), are considered to be metal.
II. - (Aven-ged' Seven-fold; noun) An amazing band with unique guitar riffs. They are among the few rockbands nowadays that 'actually' know the definition of intense. The vast majority of their songs have quite a bit of originality and taste.
III. (Aven-ged' Seven-fold; noun) Term for a childhood prodigy, whose talents and efforts are vaguely summarized as good.
I and II. - Jared Boucher: Hey, Jim... Have you ever heard of Avenged Sevenfold before?
Jim: I may have. Are they any good?
Jared Boucher: You bet.
III. - I hate that Avenged Sevenfold. He's not eeeeeveeeeeen gOoodz! Mhhhher! Nothing compares to Slipknot.
An awesome band who just released a self-titled album and are going to be on the Rockstar Taste Of Chaos 2008 tour!!! You can also call them A7X
This is how Avenged Sevenfold got A7X...
M. Shadows(lead singer): Hey I got it! A is avenged, Seven is 7 and X is fold!
Why is X fold you may ask?
the world may never know
A band that comes from Huntington Beach, CA. They have a great sound, and produce some good music....they are my second favorite band, next to The Offspring.
Now, to be frank...the only reason the band is what it is, is the lead guitarist Synyster Gates (my guitar idol, absolutely incredible), and the drummer The Rev. They ARE the band, they are SUCH musicians its incredible. The other band members are dead weight. Zacky Vengeance, M Shadows and Johnny Christ. They have no idea what they are doing musically. They have great chemistry on stage, don't get me wrong, such talent should not be mixed with that much...bad talent....thats all....
Avenged Sevenfold has an incredible drummer and lead guitarist
Embarrassing American band who believe they're hardcore because they have; lame nicknames ('Synister Gates'? Need I say more?), clothes blatantly brought from the girls section in Hot Topic (and customised to fit them), muscle-hugging tank-tops, eye-liner, face-powder and nail-varnish (they blatantly have more beauty products than me and I'm a 20 year old girl. These are men clocking 30, I may add).
Talented musicians that are over-shadowed by a poor image and a terrible singer.
Male fan: OMG I luv Avenged Sevenfold! Omgz Synister Gates is like well fit!
Non-fan: He looks like a woman.
