Artist: Avenged Sevenfold
Description:
Avenged Sevenfold: M. Shadows (vocals); Johnny Christ (bass guitar); The Rev. (drums); Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance. Personnel: Synyster Gates (vocals, guitar, piano); Zacky Vengeance (vocals, guitar); The Reverend (vocals, piano, drums); Brian Haner (guitar); Songa Lee, Alan Grunfeld, Sam Fischer, Mark Robertson , Bruce Dukov, Liane Mautner, Samuel Formicola (violin); Matthew Funes, Dave Walther (viola); David Mergen, David Low , Victor Lawrence (cello). Audio Mixer: Andy Wallace. Recording information: ocean way; The Hobby Shop. Photographer: Chapman Baehler. Unknown Contributor Role: Brian Haner. Even though Avenged Sevenfold's first two albums clearly got them lumped into the emo camp, the California quintet always hinted at the heavy metal influence of bands like Iron Maiden. With their major-label debut CITY OF EVIL, not only have they fleshed out these tendencies via the intricate riffing of dual guitarists Zacky Vengeance and Synyster Gates, but they've begun to dabble with more intricate, prog-like song structures. And with singer M. Shadows recovering from vocal chord surgery, he employs a considerably more melodic approach. The first half of CITY cleaves to what longtime fans have come to expect: dive-bombing call-and-response riffing and furious double-bass-drum attacks, peppering cuts like the soaring "Burn It Down" and the equally ferocious "Blinded in Chains." Following the power-ballad tendencies of "Seize the Day," with its subtle piano accompaniment and Shadow's full-bodied crooning, things get really interesting. Song lengths start to hover around the seven-to-nine-minute mark, and intriguing nuances come into play, like the boys' choir and 14-piece string section that defines the epic grandeur of "The Wicked End," and the Latin jam complete with flamenco flourishes that close out "Sidewinder."

  • This CD ROCKS

    The lyrics and themes are not appropriate for everyone but the CD itself shows ingenuity and originality. Unlike many CDs that I have purchased recently, this group has songs on the CD worth listening to. That is, not all songs sound the same! Sure there might be different songs on a CD, but I have been disappointed by songs that are recycled on the album and do not leave any lasting memories. The songs on this CD will have you singing them and remembering them! The guitar on this CD is phenomenal. You can really rock out to this CD in your car! Overstock sold this CD for a very fair price, too. Buy this CD for a good time jammin in your car or home!
