  1. Never been a fan of Avenged Sevenfold, but heard the title track for the first time during Eddie Trunk’s Sunday show. Not my kind of music but definitely much more listenable than their previous records, and only because of the influence. It’s a nice change from a lot of shit on the radio out there. Not sure what you get over there but in the frozen north of Michigan we get good stuff here and there, and they have already started to cycle out the Avenged songs. Making way for godawful Pretty Reckless and whatever fucking band the dude from Linkin Park sings for. I am entirely too picky though, I understand not everyone is going be into death metal but can we at least get some more trash? Harsh vocals aren’t necessary, but they help 😀

    Great review! I am glad someone else listened to it for me haha, felt I got the most out of it that I would have gotten.

      Well, it’s good to see someone enjoyed my review. I don’t pay much attention to rock radio, I tend to listen to music via youtube or grooveshark.

    I’ve never been able to get behind AVX. It just always sounded like puss-metal to me. Not my thing. I agree though that they are very talented at what they do. I just don’t happen to like what they do. A very good breakdown of the album though. I would like to request that you review Lamb of God – Wrath. I’d love to see what you have to say on that one. Cheers!!
