We made this record for the 18- to 25-year-old kid who just wants to blast some heavy s*** out his window--something you can groove to and rock out to that means something.

There's no glitz or glamour--just a heavy-hitting record that encompasses all of Avenged Sevenfold. It's a record that new fans and old fans will love. --M. Shadows

"Such tracks as Critical Acclaim, Almost Easy and Lost keep the crank factor high--but as part of a bolder, broader and more engaging soundscape.  Billboard
"Their anthem-filled fourth album's brazen swagger may prove irresistible.  Q Magazine
"The catchy Stone Temple Pilots vibe of Scream is enough to put the band back on the charts, but that could happen with more than half of this album...  The Onion A.V. Club

Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Avenged Sevenfold: Johnny Christ , Rev, M. Shadows, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance.
Muze PNote After solidly establishing themselves on the contemporary heavy music scene, Avenged Sevenfold wasted little time with following up their 2005 break-through effort, CITY OF EVIL. The band took a bold step on their fourth and self-titled full-length, opting to produce it themselves--a risky task indeed for such a young band.
Muze PNote Right out of the gate, Singer M. Shadows leads A7X even further into melodic territory--but not without a little help. Lending her vocal support to the slow-grooving "Gunslinger" and the heavy country rocker "Dear God" and taking a solo turn on "(Unbound) The Wild Ride" is Nashville implant Shanna Crooks. A7X explore dramatic power metal in the epic "A Little Piece Of Heaven," while first single "Critical Acclaim" cuts close for what has become the group's signature sound. Nonetheless, it is on this self-titled set that the band sets its sights on the mainstream.

Producer: Avenged Sevenfold

Engineer: Fred Archambault; Dave Schiffman

Avenged Sevenfold

"They're cheesy. They sing nowadays; they should scream like they used to. They're sellouts."

They fight. They f***. They destroy hotel rooms.

They're misunderstood.

They are warm. They are loyal. They are brave. They are authentic.

They are disciplined.

As musicians, the members of Avenged Sevenfold are definite virtuosos in a time when being accomplished artists seemingly means so little. They are inquisitive and never fully satisfied with their own work. They seek to grow and improve every day, regardless of the obstacles or costs involved.

They are a rock band. They are rock stars. They are Avenged Sevenfold.

Avenged Sevenfold, the album, is a self-produced effort. While the band shared co-production credit on 2005's million-selling City of Evil with Mudrock, this new album is solely their responsibility -- and they're primed to accept it.

But attaining such stature didn't arrive in an overnight jaunt. To the contrary, Avenged Sevenfold had been an integral part of the independent, underground rock scene years before breaking through on commercial radio. In fact, the Orange County, California-based act launched its career several years ago (they were barely out of high school) with the release of its debut in July 2001 of Sounding the Seventh Trumpet.

Miles of van touring ensued, performing in tightly packed clubs, and sweating shoulder-to-shoulder on both national and international levels. Despite the truly D.I.Y. affair (which still found the fledgling act putting on an eye-opening, elaborate stage show), Avenged Sevenfold never offered anything less than a full-throttle set. The band released its second independent full-length in August 2003, Waking the Fallen, a couple years later, greatly expanding on its metal-based foundation and giving us a not-so-subtle nudge that something exciting was in the imminent forecast.

Our suspicions were confirmed a couple years later, with Avenged Sevenfold's breakthrough 2005 Warner Bros. debut, City of Evil, featuring the wildly popular single "Bat Country." That was the turning point for the fearless, genre-bending quintet that, after years of clocking in on the independent level, had finally advanced towards a milestone they had been seeking throughout their careers.
