Okay, I saw people saying God randomly said "Murder will come on you Avenged Sevenfold"... uhhh... what? Here's the real definition.

The band name is from Chapter Four of Genesis (Hence the song "chapter four") in which Cain kills his brother Abel, because Cain feels God is not as interested in his burnt offerings. When God finds out what has happened, he sends Cain to live away for the rest of his life. God says if any man is to hurt Cain, he shall be avenged sevenfold.

This is the story where the kickass band got their name from.
Avenged Sevenfold is kickass.

A band which originated from Orange County, CA. As of now they have a bare able tone to the music and just awful lyrics.However, the fans of the proclaimed, "best band ever," are extremely ignorant. Many claim to be tough but are actually full of hubris. If you don't know what hubris is you are most likely one of the 12 year old fans that the band has adapted.

Most people heard a song at the end of the popular game( even more popular than the band) Call of Dudy: Black ops 2. So that is where the 12 year old fans come from.
Ignorant fan:" hey reject, you should check out avenged sevenfold"

Me:"oh you know, I would but, I would rather not have meaningless, mumbling, lyrics yelled at me through my headphones"

Question:"Have you ever noticed that every member in Avenged Sevenfold is sexy?" Answer: "Hell yeah even guys want to do them!"

Five musical geniuses from Orange County, M. Shadows (Matthew Sanders), Synyster Gates (Brian Haner jr.), Zacky Vengeance (Zachary Baker), Johnny Christ (Jonathan Seward) and The Reverand (James Sullivan) presenting us three amazing albums: Sounding The Seventh Trumpet, Waking The Fallen, and their latest City Of Evil. Duelling guitars, drastically intertwined vocals and artillery-fire drumming form their impossibly detailed songs; perfect dwelling places for the deepest emotions.
Glad to have extremely talented and unique bands like Avenged Sevenfold to save our scene from fake boring bands and scenesters.
