4.0 out of 5 stars Real Devastating June 11 2004
By SkipNJ
Format:Audio CD
These guys have some real talent. They write some of the most diverse songs I've ever heard. One second it sounds like they're playing a punk song, and the next some awesomely-heavy metal riff starts up behind swat vocals and Vinny Paul-like drumming. Stylistic transitions in the songs are seemless and it doesn't sound lame when the band gets heavy and the singer starts screaming. The elements of punk, hardcore, metal, and some 90's type vocals are all evident in their music. There are some punk moments that go to good hardcore riffs that move to devastating metal riffs which remind me of Megadeath, Iron Maiden, and Justice/Master era Metallica. The only reason I gave these guys 4 stars is because of some vocal deficiencies in a few places. Also at times the musicians are not playing together as well as they could, but this is rare. Overall it's a great first album, and from reading other reviews it seems they have fixed any flaws with their newer release "Waking the Fallen".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Overview: May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, this CD is amazing, but isn't quite as good as the Fold's second one. BUY THEM BOTH! This album has more of a punk feel to it. The singing is not as good or refined, but, to tell you the truth, I don't think Shadows has a very good voice in the first place. Also, the guitar tone has less bass, which I kinda prefer. Overview:
To End the Rapture: 9/10 This 1-and-a-half-minute long song is really cool in that it has a good guitar solo, then some catchy vocals. It's a great start, but I do feel that it doesn't show who they really are in this album.
Turn the Other Way: 10/10 Now this shows who they are. Awesome! This is one fast, metal-crazy song with lots of screaming and some good singing. The guitar is especially noteworthy. There are some great harmonics and the whole thing just falls into place. Definately one of the greatest on the CD. It ends by fading the drum, bass, and guitar tracks, leaving the strings to stay alive.
Darkness Surrounding: 10/10 Super fast. Really cool. Great drumming. He does some pretty amazing stuff on the toms followed by some really awesome double-bass-drumming. Good vocals, too, especially at the end, "smell the burning amber"
The Art of Subconcious Illusion: 10/10 Cool lyrics. This song just kinda begins out of nowhere with no intro, but is so strong through the whole thing. At one point, Shadows just like screams his vocal chords of his neck, wraps them around his eyeballs and screams if you know what I mean. It's like this awesome, high-pitched scream like he's undergoing what he's singing about or that the lyrics are really happening. Also, at one point, he hits this note that sounds a lot like Godsmack. Awesome.
We Come Out at Night: 9/10 Very great, just not as good as the rest. Catchy vocals and memorable guitar riffs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only 12 reviews of this CD? Sheesh. April 2 2004
By Raza
Format:Audio CD
You'd think most of the people who enjoyed Waking the Fallen would pick this one up. But anyway,
I love Avenged Sevenfold. This being the second CD i bought (WtF the first obviously), i initially was put off by it. Maybe it was the lack of actual sung vocals, or maybe...well, i don't know. But give this one more than a few tries you WILL be hooked. The CD reeks of metalcore, mixed with old school maiden (for a lack of a better comparision) and some punk thrown in too. Odd mix, but they make it work wonders. Some songs are very epic (Warmness of the Soul, Shattered by Broken Dreams, We Come Out at Night) and others rip your face off (Turn the Other Way, An Epic of Time Wasted, The Art of Subconcious Illusion). It's pretty balanced, except for Streets. Despite the fact that i really do enjoy the song, it feels very out of place here. What it all comes down to is that by the end of a few listens, you will know this CD rocks. It's original, melodic and grinding at the same time.
Hell, this CD even converted a good friend of mine who is most likely usually listening to terrible radio rap and trapt. Thank god i can listen to something decent when with him now.
In conclusion, ask yourself these questions: Do you like original metalcore? Can you stand large amounts of growls and screams? If yes, buy this immediately. It will defintely be a prize in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars f*cking amazing June 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
this cd is amazing, it is one of the most original cds ever. it has the perfect mix of punk and metal. M Shadows has an amazing voice, he can go from a chilling scream to a melodic singing voice. this cd ranges from times where its as heavy as any metal band to times when its just punk ( mainly the song streets). every song on this cd is amazing you will not skip a single song. even the ballad (warmness of the soul) is pretty good. and its about time that bands make songs longer then the 2 minute punk song and the 3-4 minute metal song, with the exception of to end the rapture (intro) every song is around the 5 minute mark and sometimes longer. so whether you listen to punk , metal, hardcore, screamo, whatever you need this cd. you will not be disappointed

5.0 out of 5 stars great stuff May 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Avenged Sevenfold rock. Sounding the 7th trumpet is their best cd in my opinion, it combines an almost punk style along with a little heavier metal, and M. Shadows uses either a chilling growl or a melodic singing voice, but combined they are amazing. the guitars are on the heavy side but youll still get awesome solos, and their drummer is a genious who knows how to use double bass. The songs will stay with you even after you hear them, they are simply amazing. Definete must have cd.
PS as if this you need an even better reason the buy this cd, all the guys in this band are flippin hott. (sorry if your a guy)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as W.T.F.
Yeah I like this CD, but it was a little of the undeveloped voice from M.Shadows that gave this a 4 star rating. I still like it, don't get me wrong but M. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up.
Best A7X CD. On the verge of punk and metal, no band has ever reached this level before. An almost perfect CD.
