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.
