The Metallica of the 21st century, amazing vocals, guitarist actually have talent, and the drums are heart stopping.

Vocals - M. Shadows
Guitar - Synyster Gates
Guitar - Zacky Vengeance
Bass - Johnny Christ
Drums - The Rev

They have recorded 3 full length albums, Waking The Fallen being my personal fave.
Me: Avenged Sevenfold is the greatest band of this era! Long live A7X!

Mindless person who knows nothing about music: A7X sucks, I'm gonna go listen to some Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, and Ashley Simpson, now that's rock n' roll, hyuck!

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.

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.

Avenged centerfold are a shitty band that look like the bastard chldren of a gay biker and whiny emo. Their music is charicterized by stolen Iron Maiden riffs, simple chord progressions, and sissy vocals. Quite possibly, all butt pirates.

Fans are usually teenage girls or gender confused teenage boys.
Fag: Hey dude, did you hear the new avenged sevenfold album yet? It rocks!

True rocker: Piss off bitch! (pushes fag down, spits on him)

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

Possibly one of the biggest letdowns in the history of the music industry. At the beginning A7X was an extremely good hardcore band, but after a vocal injury, they pussied down. City of evil, their first album after the injury was decent, but a huge dissapointment to many loyal A7x fans. After City of evil came their self titled album, "avenged sevenfold", one of the biggest letdowns i have ever listened to. A band that once had some of the most deep and meaningful lyrics, are now singing about fucking dead bodies and sex/drugs in almost every song. And to keep going, their newest album "Diamonds in the Rough" was possibly one of the worst albums i've ever heard. Featuring songs like "flash of the blade" which takes ones of the coolest sounding intros, and throws it all away as soon as the vocals come in. again, all it talks about is sex/drugs/death.

My personal opionion is that M. Shadows is holding the band back now. Vocals are what defines a band for most people, and when they hear Shadows' shitty new voice, they turn it off right away.
This band features 2 instrumentalists who may be THE BEST in their field.
Synyster gates, one of the best guitarists in the world, and The Rev, one of the best drummers in the world.

I was a hardcore A7x fan back when they came out with their first album "Sounding the seventh trumpet" and was a fan all the way up until "City of Evil" figuring that i might give them a chance. Now i can say this,

"sevenfold is dying, and the only thing they can do to stop it is kick the singer and get back into hardcore"
"dude avenged sevenfold used to be the bomb, but now they totally suck"
