Album Review

Mudrock's dry production focuses almost all of Waking the Fallen on Avenged Sevenfold's greatest strength. That, of course, would be performance, and the band delivers with unflagging aggression and precision. Never mind the lyrical ennui or throat-scrape yowling; there's more to this music than generic cliché. When he wants to, M. Shadows can passionately project in a way that turns even the grim "Desecrate Through Reverance" into an almost bouncy little melody. (Incidentally, Reverance? Remenissions? Reverand? Maybe doomsday is around the corner, but isn't there still time to run song titles and soubriquets through a spell check?) And whether attacking a riff in unison or in harmonized parts, the double-threat guitars of Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance do their duty like search-and-destroy commandos — in and out fast, leaving devastation in their wake. Especially noteworthy — and note-heavy — is the guitar solo that blazes through the last moments of "Second Heartbeat" and the head-spinning single-stroke virtuosity of the Reverand throughout the album. [For the ten-year anniversary of the release of Waking the Fallen, a 27-track CD/DVD set was released in 2014.] ~ Robert L. Doerschuk, Rovi

Hail to the kings

About time they bring this masterpiece back this was by far their best album. City of evil was good, so was nightmare self-title. Even hail to the king was good for what they were trying to do on that album I mean it wasn't their sound still rocked but waking the fallen was and still is the best album these king have and ever will put out. A7X FOR LIFE

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),...
