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"

One of the most kick ass bands ever.

The Biblical term of Avenged Sevenfold, is the first murder on Earth. It is when Cain killed Abel.Then God said murder will come upon you Avenged Sevenfold. Basically what comes around goes around.
Avenged Sevenfold is from the bible even though they arent a religous band!

Avenged Sevenfold, the best band ever, hails from Orange County, CA. The band is a hardcore band, that has more recently become more of a full-on metal band. The lineup includes:

Matt Shadows- Lead Vocals
Synyster Gates- Lead Guitars
Zacky Vengeance- Rhythm Guitars
Johnny Christ- Bass
The Rev- Drums

The band has released three full length CDs to date. 2001's "Sounding The Seventh Trumpet", 2003's "Waking The Fallen", and 2005's "City of Evil". The songs they have released include "Darkness Surrounding", "Unholy Confessions", "Chapter Four", "Burn It Down", and "Bat Country". No band can ever remove Avenged Sevenfold from the spot of being the best band ever.
That Avenged Sevenfold show last night was fucking awesome and I can't wait to buy all their CDs and see them on tour again!

A crazy ass punk-metal or metalcore band with intense vocals and complex guitar riffs. A7X is another way to write their name.
Person 1: Dude, Waking the Fallen is a straight album.

Person 2: Fo' serious. My fave track on that bi' be Second Heartbeat.

A hardcore band born out of Huntington Beach California, Avenged Sevenfold(informally known as A7X) came together in hopes of being heard. Their mission was accomplished. Throughout their four albulms, Warmness on the Soul, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, Waking the Fallen, and their latest City of Evil, they have exposed the world to strong lyrics and powerful chords. Mixing sounds of bands such as Iron Maiden, Guns and Roses, and Bad Religion, they're creating music to make a scene about.

Members include:

M. Shadows - Lead Vocals
Synyster Gates - Lead Guitar
Zacky Vengeance - Guitar
Johnny Christ - Bass
The Rev - Drums
Just like everyother band out there, Avenged Sevenfold will Own Your Face!!
