Avenged Sevenfold Issues New Album Recording Update

Band Photo: Avenged Sevenfold (?)

Avenged Sevenfold has issued the following update about recording their new album:

"It has been awhile since we have shed light on our current doings. Well here is a long awaited update into the world of A7X. We came off of the road amidst one of the most turbulent times in history. Everything going on around us was overwhelming, frightening, frustrating and confusing. I must confess that it was also very exciting to me. I’m sure you can share my sentiment. We have been focused on only one thing, writing and preparing to record what to me is our most personal and epic Avenged Sevenfold album. The reason is the fact that everything happening around us in the entire world might be a once in a life time source of inspiration and direction.

"We have been harnessing every aspect of what makes A7X truly unrelenting and building off of that. I don’t think we sleep too much anymore because of the excitement we feel while writing this album. Only a world spinning out of control could inspire the music and vision we have now. Once again it is fucking exciting. We will continue finalizing our songs until we feel every note does both You as well as Us justice. We are also in the final stages of solidifying our production team, studios and engineers so that the second the axe falls and the album is written we will spend day and night in the studio until it is complete. This album will definitely take you on a very dark journey..."

i'm not a fan of their dressing up. But they make incredible music, so what if they make Metal look gay. It comes down to the music and to me, they pass with flying colors.
What isn't there to love?
Duelling guitars
Sweet guitar solos and licks
Insane drumming
Great vocals, a mix between screaming, singing and growling. And they use back up vocals which sound magnificent live.
They're best lyrical content has to be from City Of Evil.
And they're the only Heavy Metal band brave enough try something new; Their Self Titled was interesting, and i liked every song, including the country song "Dear God"
They also kept their Metal roots with "Afterlife" which is just pure musical genius.
I don't understand why people are hating on them so much just because clothes.
They're great musicians and i have a world of respect for them because they're not afraid of anything.

Go and check out Celtic Frost. There's a band that tried something new on every album, yet kept a signature sound. Even their Cold Lake album is better than anything A7X has done. You can love this band all you want, you have the freedom and right to, we're not trying to stop you. But nothing this band has ever done is "genius" nor does it come close to it. I've read some of their lyrics and they're of an exceptionally poor standard. The singing is terrible too. I've also seen these guys live and I watched them with an open mind, but they were awful. Sorry fella.

Ok. I read some post up here that really p***ed me off! I like A7X a lot especially there first album which is the hardest album they made yet. So what if some of the members wear make up its only for the image of the band and alter ego's. For ignorant a$$ bulls*** ppl to come up here and talk s*** about this group is a pompus F*** stick up their mama's ass. I think Avenged Sevenfold is a awesome awesome band. If ur a real metal head...no other band doesn't have s*** on Black Sabbath AND Metallica period. All these other bands ya'll cats are naming are uberly not on the status of these two bands. Yes f*** pop rock or rock pop s*** like Fall Out Boy, Metro Station, and all the other today's rock bands and especially all the other metal bands that try to take the style of other veteran metal bands like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Rage Against The Machine, Megadeth, and Motorhead. Bottom line Avenged Sevenfold is a great band and cannot wait for this new album. If ur not a fan and just wanna come up here and talk s*** out ur a$$ about A7X then you personally are a hater and balls must not have dropped yet so shut your mouths and get a life. Comment on a band that you actually like you C**TS!! Oh and by the way F.Y.I all the members of A7X is married.

Ok. Yo in all honesty you F***s that are up dissing a great band are pathetic at life in itself and your moms shouldn't had you...mistake sry. For those of you who listen to has been bands like Lamb of God and stuff..dude they are has-beens. Metallica is still THE best record selling AND concert selling band in the Metal scene. Avenged Sevenfold has transended metal to a new and fresh level. YES they are catagorized as metal. It use to be metalcore for their first two albums but Shadows the lead vocalist didn't want to scream much anymore, but I do like the fact he combines scream, growl, and awesome singing vocals all together. Its very good stuff. I still think they best lyrical album is City Of Evil, but the self-titled album is effin great especially the songs Critical Acclaim and A Little Piece Of Heaven which I personally think is THE most controversal song in the metal and rock scene. If you talk so much crap about this group then you are not a true fan of Metal or Hard Rock. I'm not saying you should be but listen to all their albums especially A7X's first album "Sounding The Seventh Trumpet" it beats Slipknot's Iwoa album and I'm also a Slipknot fan hahaha. Avenged Sevenfold is a awesome band and their up and coming album in 2010 is gonna be great.

A7X is NOT metal. They are nothing more than a corporate boy band labeled as metal by those who are not "in the know". I AM METAL and have been for over 30 years. I can also say with the utmost certainty that Oz is metal as well. You sh!t stains that think they are metal know nothing of the genre or what it stands for. If anything, A7X is the anti-metal. Also, have you ever noticed that Mickey Mouse and M. Shadows are never seen at the same place at the same time? Coincedence? I think NOT!

wow, well, seems like i've gotten on this a bit too late. i'm with fudgemeharder on everything he said about a7x, except for... >.> i kinda put his name of choice in question for credibility, but i agree with him nonetheless. it's pointless for me to state the a7x, is in fact, whether u like it or not, METAL, kuz everyones still gonna stubbornly think the same way even when evidence and facts r provided for them. touring with buckcherry, a hard rock band, doesn't make a metal band NOT metal and just kuz u don't consider them metal, doesn't make it true either. G 'n' R is nowhere NEAR what u would call metal today, and yet, it is, as the same for zeppelin, and hell man, even sabbath. just kuz u stupid ignorant elitists a$$holes ONLY listen to metal or just one genre of metal, doesn't make a metal band of another metal genre NOT metal just kuz it's not what u listen to. and it's sad that it takes for me to basically come across as if i'm defending a band that isn't even anywhere near being even one of my fav bands (ever), just to state this issue with the majority of the members and guests here on MU. i agree with what alotta ppl say here about somw stuff but when others say stupid ignorant sh** like calling a band not metal, when they clearly r, just kuz they don't like it, then that's when i have to disagree.

np : depeche mode - "precious" (just some GOOD music that is surely NOT metal, and yet has influenced hundreds of metal bands for yrs, but of course, that doesn't matter just kuz it doesn't meet with ur standards)

Why is it that you lifeless and useless gotta talk smack about me on the internet, but u won't say it to my face..wow your moms must have not loved you enough in your life. Anyways alright know-it alls..A7X is catagorized as Metal. It used to be Metalcore.Slipknot is catagorized as Nu Metal. Metallica is Heavy Metal. Dethlok is Death Metal. Slayer can be Heavy Metal or Death Metal. Either way A7X is Metal the f***! I know what the hell I am talking about jacka**es! And Five Finger Death Punch may be Metal but have they sold a great record yet? NO. All of A7X's albums topped the Billboard top 200. City Of Evil hit #2 and went gold. The self-titled album hit I believe #5 or 2 on the charts and that album sold well. Sounding The Seventh Trumpet hit #28. Yo if you are a young cat up here and just started listening to Metal DO NOT START with these wanna be Slipknot, Metallica, or Sabbath bands. Start with Sabbath then Slayer, Metallica (first album Kill Em' All then work ur way up to the newest album Death Magnetic) also Motorhead, Rollins Band, Ironmaiden, Judas Priest, Motely Crue, Slipknot etc etc. The older bands paved the way for newer bands like Linkin Park, Heaven and Hell, Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, A7X to be as successful as they were back in the 70's, 80's, and 90's. But out of the older bands Metallica still brings Heavy Metal to its roots and is the most copied band out their. And to the a** clown who said A Little Piece Of Heaven is not controversal. Hmm let's see the song is talking about killing his gf and the raping her because he was crazy. That why the last little bit of the verse say I never felt anything so good and so f***in deep. Then his gf soul comes back and kills him and so on and so on. They couldn't do a video for it b/c of its subject so they did an animated video for the internet.

Wow, Seventh Trumpet sounds scary. It would be original if bands as varied as King Diamond and Suffocation hadn't already done that subject along time before Avenged Sevenfold. "Marital Decimation" by Suffocation for example, is about a guy who comes home drunk and brutally murders his wife, before eating her organs. Better song too. Also, you don't see us trying to make it sound like it's super deep and meaningful. It's just a song.

"Why is it that you lifeless and useless gotta talk smack about me on the internet, but u won't say it to my face"

1. * Your
2. * You
3. The say it to my face line just reminds me of the "say that to my face fa**ot" picture and it made me laugh.
4. How can people say it to your face if they don't know where you live. That's not cowardice, it's a lack of information.
5. How can their albums TOP the Billboard charts if they get as high as 28, 5 or 2?
6. Since when did record sales determine good music?
7. Piss off.

Look Diamond chick! If u did your research and look at their record sales then you will see my point. Damn..are you a blonde? If so do some research on Avenged Sevenfold to feel that space in your head chick. Obviously if a band or artist is topping or doing great on the Billboard 200 and the ablum hits number two or five that's freakin good I don't give a rats a** what anybody say about that. I think everybody cannot stand artist(s) or bands that try something new within their genre they expect them to continue with the same old stuff eventually ppl are gonna get sick of it. I didn't like AC/DC's new album that came out last year b/c it sounded to much like their old albums. Another example Kanye West's 808's album. Ppl didn't like it. I love that album. Kanye wanted to do something new. But idk..A7X always tries to do something new and that's what I like about them and ppl either like it or seriously builds a strong dislike for them. Music is music if you love it and learn to appreciate it. I just don't understand why everybody is hatin' on A7X and talk so much bs about them? If you hate them so much then why comment up here at all..just sayin'.

Hey buddy Heaven and Hell isn't a new band, it's same Black Sabbath only with different name lol. And still why do we have to give a sh** about the thoughts of the guy who likes Kanye West and other mainstreem acts. BTW if we don't like the bands you like, it doesn't make us close-mindeds

i agree with Metallica!KingsOfMetal...A7X is a great band great musicians...and they don't have afraid of trying new things!! They only have 10 years but already try allot of things, don't give a sh** about what ppl say..and 10 years form now they will be one of the best metal bands! Not mention that they have one of the best guitar player..Synyster Gates..he already is in a list of the 50 fastest guitar players off all time!! if have any doubt check the solo of Afterlife form they last album.

"The older bands paved the way for newer bands like Linkin Park, Heaven and Hell, Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, A7X to be as successful as they were back in the 70's, 80's, and 90's"

You obviously know absolutely sh** about nothing.!!
Heaven and Hell is made up of the founding members of Black Sabbath with RJ Dio singing.!
This same line-up recorded several albums from the early 80s and into early 90s that were released under the Black Sabbath name.!

Instead of spouting off about something you obviously know nothing about... perhaps you should finish Jr High school and hope that someday you will learn something about metal that doesnt come from MTV or VH1.!

They're too much of a copycat of Guns N Roses. I like a couple of songs on City of Evil because they're catchy. Here this is what I have on my ipod by them:

MIA
Batcountry
Beast and the Harlot


that's basically it. I have to be in a really weird mood to listen to either of these. The guy has a winy voice. I guess some of the riffs are ok though. Also, christian bands like this, underoath, As I lay Dying, are a huge turnoff for me for some reason.

mylifeisallblack: If I ever needed to "learn" anything about metal, I'd ask someone who knew their a$$ from a hole in the ground. In case you were wondering... You didn't make that list. In the future, if I want to hear anything out of you, i'll just fart. The outcome is essentially the same. Many of the members of this site are familiar with my work and experience in metal and I have toured the US and Europe in a metal band (i'd say that proves that i've done something with MY life). What metal "experience" do you have under your belt? Do you have a CD out? No? Do you even know how to play an instrument? I'm just wondering what credentials you have to back up your vast knowledge of metal? LOL... Newbie.

All I hear from you A7X fanboys is album sales and fastest guitar (which I find to be utterly rediculous). Is that truely what determines quality to you? You like it and believe it's quality music because a lot of other douche bags like it too? If that is your argument then I think you might want to check out some other quality music like the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana because they both outsold A7X with their last TWO albums.

Metallica!KingsOfMetal: First of all your screen name screams of ignorance. Secondly, I'd take the opportunity to say anything I want "to your face" if you weren't an annonymous internet douche bag. I won't even delve into your ignorant comment about Heaven and Hell because my metal brothers have pretty much covered that already. Third, Oz (who is male) has more metal in his little finger than you will ever have because you stay stuck in your own little silo where you feel safe and warm. If you actually ventured out into the world of real metal instead of staying stuck in your mainstream rut, you'd see exactly what everyone else is saying here. But you won't. You'll cuddle up to your poster of A7X and go in for the big rub every night just like you always have. Enjoy your bubble gum rock and sing the praises of A7X to deaf ears everywhere you go. That and 10 bucks will get you a bag of manure to hide your head in for the rest of your life.

Nothing: I believe you've missed the point. Bon Jovi is also considered metal, but I dare say you wouldn't call his material metal. Just because the rest of society puts a metal label on a bun and serves it to us doesn't mean real metal heads have to swallow it. Will you find A7X in the metal section at the local record store? Sure, but you'll also find a lot of other things that obviously don't belong there either. A Boca burger is called a burger, but there isn't any hamburger in it either.

The name of the (current) band is Blind Greed genius. I am not a metal god, just a musician that cares about the generes enough to call it as I see it. Especially when it relates to a group that is killing everything metal stands for in my eyes. There is no place in metal for over glorified boy bands that call themselves metal for the sake of producing an immage and making money off the mindless masses that buy into their dribble and call it music. A7X will be about as relevant in 10 years as Brittany Fox is now (although I doubt you are old enough to know who that is).

Honestly, I used to listen to quite alot of this bands work. But after a short while, it just got boreing, old... then I started looking around, opened my eyes. there is so much more out there they arn't doing much new or that hasn't been done before but I still like a few of there songs and might listen to one every few months.
But all the little fanboys really need to grow up. Just because one likes something and can quote sails stats and guitar speed rankings, it doesn't mean there is quality there... look at dragon force, they can play guitar fast but that's about it. look at hanna montanna, she can make top of the top 40, this doesn't maker her worth anything if a bunch of little kids beg those takeing care of them to buy something targeted at them. look at all the sh** targeted at kids that is crap.. but sells well.
Get the point yet?
Sure, there are popular things that were ok that influenced metal and or hard rock that none of us around here would like. But it doesn't really matter that much because it doesn't get you anywere in the argument.
If this bands next album can show something better than what they've done then ok, if not... well, we'll still be in this same position, dealing with narrow minded people that would rather stay in there comfort zones.

I think we owe all metal in this world to the liked of Hendrix and BB King. And I know what ya'll will say, BB King is a Blues and Jass guitarist. But think about it, Metal is just a heavier form of Blues.

Angus Young of ACDC started out being a blues guitarist, as did his younger brother Malcolm following in his footsteps.

And without Hendrix...well damn, there'd be no heavy music at all. Look at what he turned distortion into...I honestly think no one could have done that but him in the history of tthe world.

Pioneers like these guys are who we should be owing all credit to.

Not trying to start an argument, just putting my two cents in here.

And A7X sucks major balls.

also incase u havent come out of that cave u live in, there are different types of metal and just because a7x doesnt play the metal u listen to doesnt make them not metal. I listen to all different types from thrash, metalcore, true metal, deathcore and a few others, but i dont go around bashing all the metals i dont like. Every single genre of metal has something unique and different about it. Whether anyone likes it or not every metal genre came from true metal which was the first one such as sabbath and judas priest and thats the music a7x has chosen to play now. Deal with it and get over it.

Black Sabbath is Doom metal

judas Priest is borderline power metal, and sometimes approach thrash(see Painkiller album), but mainly classified as NWOBHM.


Avenged sevenfag plays music on a totally different wavelength as Priest man, dont ever compare them in a non-opposing manner ever again.
