Best Avenged Sevenfold Album Openers

I don't care what people say, I think Avenged Sevenfold is a decent band with some merit both in terms of songwriting and in performance. I find their openers in particular to be great. I don't count intros as opening songs.

The Top Ten

1 The Stage

An awesome song that I really think should get more praise. The instrumentation and vocals are both on point, and the final 2-3 minutes are amazing. - kempokid

I'm not a fan of A7x or most modern band out there.but have to agree this song isn't bad at all. the intro and guitar work is good - Vip3r

2 Beast and the Harlot

The drumming in particular is really good here. It also has either my favorite, or second favorite chorus by these guys. - kempokid

3 Nightmare

While a lot of people would have this as number 1, I think that a slightly lower position is deserved. It's a really good song, but compared to the songs I put above this, I find this one to be the weakest. That said, the performance by everyone is to notch here. - kempokid

4 Critical Acclaim

I love the brutal sound to this song. While it's nowhere near the most intense song I've heard and enjoyed, it's definitely unique sounding to have a song like this past their first 2 albums. I really like it though. - kempokid

5 Shepherd of Fire

The only issue I have with this song is that it sounds a bit too similar to Enter Sandman for my liking. Other than that, it's still half decent. - kempokid

This song sucks - Vip3r

6 Unholy Confessions

I honestly don't like this song as much as most. The opening riff is really good, but I find the bulk of the song to be largely uninteresting, especially when the tempo was reduced. - kempokid

7 Demons

I personally find this song to be average. Nothing bout it particularly stands out, but nothing is really wrong with it either, it's just average. - kempokid

8 Turn the Other Way

Ugh, I really dislike the entirety of STST, the screaming is of poor quality, and the clean vocals are even worse. I don't like anything about this song - kempokid
