Avenged Sevenfold will release their first single, "Almost Easy," from their upcoming self-titled album on September 18 via iTunes. The album is due out on October 30th through the usual retail outlets. The new record will follow up the band's 2005 breakthrough effort, "City of Evil", and marks their first attempt at producing themselves.

In other A7X news, the band has released a new webisode in which Wolfie lays it down for all the haters. You can check this video out here or below.

As previously reported, Avenged Sevenfold has announced roughly half of the dates for their upcoming US tour.

Do yourself a favour, stop questioning the bashing. There's always A7X fans that turn up to defend them but just accept that they will be slaughtered with insults on this site.

I do not no. However I respect that people like whatever they like which is why I don't tend to make fun of people for their tastes. But it's kinda like, one of my favourite band's is Fozzy but they get slaughtered on this site and it doesn't bother me. The comment box is there to use as people see fit and if they want to flame a band that's cool with me because there's nothing anyone can do to stop it. Just no spam though lol.

The "usual namby pamby's" are probably crying and whackin' off to gay porn, using their tears as lube. Typical A7X fan hobbie, shame on them.

its funny how most of the people on this site do not like a7x. Why not? is it because they aren't underground enough? naming bands that are better than them that nobody's even heard of and when i go to look them up i understand why, they blow. this has happened so many times, all of you self percieved metal elitists need to stop making asses of yourselves. This is a talented band, that is not an opinion, that is a fact

"this has happened so many times, all of you self percieved metal elitists need to stop making asses of yourselves. This is a talented band, that is not an opinion, that is a fact." definitely loved that part. so nice a new avenged sevenfold album the best part is that they'll make a self titled for the fourth album,so nice specially because the album is more personnal to them. anyway can't wait to get it. I dunno why im still out there reading all those stupid 30 feets hair metal heads comments bashing about how good their fast paced mofagging band (with triggered bass drums beats all the way and same repeated patterns) still kicks a$$ ummm... in the underground loooooll... the best part is nobody or everybody is gonna read this and are going to put so much hate on me but so wutt... the rev's gonna bleed everything that was ever made again and again like he did in city of evil. From what i've heard yet there's a fourth masterpiece coming this october and its going to be another great album like waking the fallen and city of evil are.

After listening to Almost Easy....it's different then Critical Acclaim. I don't know if I like it or if I want to just to run in the other direction. And I've been a fan since 2003. It's too slow and it has lines saying 'I'm not insane,I'm not insane.' WTF!! ok. whatever. let's just hope i won't be let down by the rest of the album. But on the other note. I DID LOVE THE NEW BLACK DAHLIA MURDER ALBUM. ^.^ I saw them b****es live in san antonio at white rabbit. It was INSANE!!

Bands more metal than A7X? Let's see now, other than the aforementioned Priest and Maiden, there's Venom, Slayer, Onslaught, Kreator, Sepultura, Pantera, Destruction, Celtic Frost and many more. The bands that I named are better (in my opinion) than A7X because they all contributed something to metal or at least metal from their own countries as opposed to A7X who may aswell be called Motley Roses. All of those bands have heavier music than A7X, are better musicians, can sing better, write better lyrics and so on and so forth.
