#8? In my opinion this is the best guitar track Avenged has ever made and one of the better vocal tracks. I think it also their best written 'epic' song. Great transitions, awesome solo, great breakdown, and an overall cohesive feel. I grant that it may be tougher to get into then the other songs because of its length, but a true fan should be able to appreciate this as one of their most complete songs to date.

I agree, this should not be #8, more like #1. 11 minutes of epic-ness in my opinion. Most people probably just pass by the 11 minute song, but if you have time sit down and give it a listen, it will be amazing, the vocals, guitar solo, etc. And everything really flows together nicely. - xSpartanXx

Longest/ best song they've ever recorded. With the bells and violins, the dual guitarists are the best in it. And the ending just fits in so well. This should be number 1

This song is pretty much 11 minutes of pure Avenged Sevenfold. It has elements from all of their albums (besides for maybe Sounding the Seventh Trumpet) and I think it is their best song to date.

3So Far Away

its so touching... makes me cry every time I here it... love Shadows voice.. hands down boy...!
Syn wrote this song tribute to the Rev(Greatest Drummer ever.. R.I.P. ) and one of the best guitar solos I've ever heard... WoOoow... This song is Perfect in every way and One of the greates(I mean it) songs by a7x(Greatest musicians)... love it lot...

I have so much to say but your so far away...! love you guys... - skt

This song has come straight from the hearts of Avenged. I could write a novel about how this should be the number one song of all time. A7X are such a strong band to carry on going without Jimmy. He will be missed dearly. I respect every lyric ever written by Avenged Sevenfold. This song is perfect, makes me cry.R.I. P Jimmy.
A7X foREVer

Every single time I hear to this song I cry.. It doesn't matter where I am or how my mood is, I just cry because it breaks my heart the meaning of the song and of course the way that shadow, syn, zacky and christ make me feel the song trough my whole body till my heart... The guitar solo really gets so deep

Its very difficult to choose between so far away and nightmare. But I will choose so far away

4Welcome to the Family

Best metal song ever, kick-ass guitar riff, great vocal and mind-blowing drums intro.
What else can I say? Just vote for it.

The lyrics are awesome and the guitar makes me want to smash everything in my room and punch holes in the wall.

This song seems to be extremely underrated. The drums in the intro, the riffs, the solos, lyrics... This is a masterpiece that doesn't get the credit it really deserves. - ThatStrangeKid42

MY - FAVORITE- all time Avenged Sevenfold SONG! IT MEANS so MUCH TO ME AND if you understand the lyrics... Its very relatable

5Buried Alive

The beginning has a Led Zeppelin-esque feel to it, and then it slams into shredded
Megadeth-like riffs. I personally enjoyed the headbanging skeletons in the lyrics video.

it's not just best song of nightmare but one of best song of avenged sevenfold

starts out a beautiful slow song, than erupts into an amazing heavy song

LOVE the ending it was badass

This is one of the best Avenged Sevenfold song, the rev once again proved that he was the greatest personality on earth by writing the beautiful lyric's for this song and the feel in this song is just awesome, R.I. P James Owen Sullivan. :(

While I think the album is so awesome that it is entirely impossible to even pick a favorite song from it (it changes day to day for me), well today this is it- it is one of the best for sure on the album, it so emotional. And it is #10? - cowboyskid2

Most people will find this song annoying at first but after a few listens you start to feel this having a goodbye letter from the rev. Absolutely a beautiful song, they have played this song twice live and both times I had goosebumps. One of the best songs Rev has ever written hands down

The revs voice is amazing come on nightmare isn't that good of a song

8Natural Born Killer

has a very fast intro, solid verses, a beautiful chorus, and a catchy beat. all these things make natural born killer one of their bests

LOVE THIS SONG so MUCH! M. Shadows is absolutely amazing. I consider this song as one of their best songs but still it could be even greater if it contained Matt's lovely screams.

I love the the riff that the song has and the solo is amazing

Should be way higher, such a good song, and the solo is so good too. Definitely one of their best.

This song is slightly different from some of their other stuff, but if you really took the time to listen to it you'd find out how great the lyrics and tune are.

such a beautiful and underrated song. why doesn't anyone like this song?? very touching lyrics.

At first I heard this songs, I thought I was wrong named song cause the first vocal is isn't matt or zacky or syn's vocal

The part in between the Solos just leaves you with no words.. the music and the lyrics perfect mix.. Love It.

10Danger Line

It begins cool, continues great and finishes epic. After the second chorus, as it has been said before, the song gets amazing. The piano part is awesome and ends with one of the most emotional A7x solos. One of their best songs, not only in the album, overall.

The part after the second chorus is easily the best part in the album, and has the best secundary voices of all avenged sevenfold, that, plus a piano breakdown makes this a masterpiece.

Great chorus, shredding guitar, cool beat, emotional ending. just kicks ass overall, great tribute to the troops

That Syn Gates is the BEST at what he does

11Tonight the World Dies

Every album has it; the underrated song that no one knows about. But I must say that this is Shadow's greatest vocal performance he's ever done.

Ii don't mind (no one else likes this song)
Motheerr cries ( I think this should be number one)
Find me on my better days
Listening to the song... In a daze

This song is so touching on so many levels. - MetalDisciple
