Editors’ Notes

Avenged Sevenfold’s fifth studio album is their first without drummer James “The Reverend” Sullivan, who died in 2009. Dream Theatre’s Mike Portnoy makes for a stellar replacement both musically and sentimentally as Sullivan was largely inspired by the talented Sullivan. Though some fans believe Nightmare to be conceptual, it plays more like a tribute album as the lyrics often touch on the subject of the band’s fallen brother — they also recorded a few of Sullivan’s songs for this project. The title-track opens with M. Shadows belting out fevered vocals like a young James Hetfield by way of the late Layne Staley from Alice In Chains. Synyster Gates’ dexterous guitar leads import the fretboard-shredding harmonic style that was forged in the fires of early-‘80s British metal, especially during the soaring melodies in the chorus of “Welcome to the Family” and all over the powerful “Danger Line.” The wistful “Buried Alive” proves that ballads can still sound tough. The bookending 11-minute epic “Save Me” goes out like a 21-gun salute to Sullivan.

Customer Reviews


Flott skive som sagt ,men hvorfor er ikke deluxe edition på den norske itunes store ?


Hadde forventet meg mye og alle forventningene ble innfridd albumet har ingen svakheter. Dette er Avenged Sevenfold på sitt beste! Sanger som Fiction, So Far Away, Save Me og Danger Line er fantastiske. Virkelig en CD alle bør kjøpe, dette er deres beste, rett over City of Evil og selftitled.


Må vel også innrøme at jeg ikke har vert fan av Avenged Sevenfold så lenge, men etter å ha hørt Gunsling og Seize the day så når Nightmare albumet kom ut så ble de offisielt mitt favoritt band. Sangene, stemmen til Shadows og de AWESOME gitarsoloene På albumet er det beste jeg har hørt ever! Det at "The Rev" døde var veldig trist og du merken en følelse av at du mangler han på CDen. Men som de sier His Spirit Is In The Album.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

One of the more successful and accessible metalcore outfits to come out of the early 2000s, Avenged Sevenfold endured changes both stylistic and internal during their rise from teenage troublemakers to mainstream success story. The members of Avenged Sevenfold (or A7X) were still attending high school in Huntington Beach, California, when they formed their band in 1999. Nevertheless, it didn't take long for M. Shadows (vocals), Zacky Vengeance (guitar), Synyster Gates (guitar), the Reverend (drums),...
