Best Avenged Sevenfold Songs
Big cry one, I mean. There's literally much sadder Avenged Sevenfold songs but Afterlife it's Just nostalgia of My childrenity.
It's just too creepy how well this song predicted how the future would turn out.
The Rev Screaming "I need another chance to live! ", and him being found dead less than 2 years later, eerily following the plot of the song.
We all want you back, Jimmy.
That is only one of the infinite details that make this song perfect, in my eyes (and ears. Mostly ears. ).
The solo and harmonies are masterfully done, not to mention the rest of the song.
The drum work provides a spot-on beat with the killer bass-lines, and M. Shadows uses just that right mix of cleanliness and dirt to get that voice we all know and love.
Add the aforementioned epic-soloing and you have perfection.
Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance, The Reverend Tholomew Plague, M. Shadows, and Johnny Christ made some of the greatest works of their lives in this song.
If this was a rating system, rather than a voting system:
Afterlife, by Avenged Sevenfold: 10/10
The string instruments are a beautiful incorporation and give this song great uniqueness, vocals are passionate and intense yet still retain that wonderful edgy metal-eques feel that A7X does so well, bass and drums are prominent and near perfectly support the guitar and vocals, and that solo is just awesome. This has become my go-to song right before sporting events and anything I need to be hyped for. Not my favorite metal song overall but I've really gotta hand it to A7X on this one.
This song is definitely the best songs out there. not in my own top ten list no, but I understand why this song is number 1 here. see, this song is very... I don't know the word, maybe well-liked? Because apparently everyone who knows Avenged Sevenfold just by its name knows this song (and Dear God too, but we're talking about this song). and what makes me amazed is that my 1D-loving, JB-loving friends LIKE this song too. it's one of the most commercial song of them I think.
However, great song. that Syn's solo is very sick. The Rev's voice is very... Rev. I don't know. 'Rev' is just another word for 'awesome' for me. I really love this song.
This is the best metal song of the decade. I love it to pieces. This is the first A7X song I ever heard. I will admit that afterlife and a little piece of heaven are incredible, but this is the best song ever. Here's my list. 1. Nightmare 2. A little Piece of Heaven 3. Bat Country 4. Afterlife 5. So Far Away 6. Beast and the Harlot 7. Unholy Confessions 8. Second Heartbeat 9. Critical Acclaim 10. Almost Easy. I am now a huge fan of A7X. My favorite bands are Slipknot A7X System of a Down and Korn. Metal foREVer
This song was the first ever song that I listened of Avenged Sevenfold. And after that I more and more likely to listen songs of this band. Every song they sang are terrific. Music is superb. This song must be listened once by metal lovers. Everyday I listen this song and after life to. Well done Avenged Sevenfold. I Love You Guys.
everyone must listen to this song
this song was one of the last the rev made,
This song deserves top position. The drums are incredible as all of rev's songs, the solo and riffs are amazing, surprisingly the lyrics have a twisted sort of humor in them and the laugh just chills you to the bone. Best of Avenged Sevenfold.
Nightmare it's kinda odd, it seems like an another Metallica's Enter Sandman clone. Obviously A Little Piece of Heaven it's way darker and unique.
A Little Piece Of Heaven is a very very special song, as all Avenged Sevenfold fans know. It's so unique and individual, everything about it is brilliant, particularly those great choruses. It has it's own unique style, and is a brilliant song. In ways this song deserves an even better position on this remix, A Little Piece Of Heaven, So Far Away, Seize The Day, Fiction, Chapter Four, Hail To The King and Coming Home are all literally joint sixth for me, I cannot choose between them, they're all better than each other in different ways and are all BRILLIANT songs. Despite Chapter Four and So Far Away coming so close, A Little Piece Of Heaven has got to reach my top ten.
Avenged Sevenfold are a brilliant band. Particularly their second studio album Waking The Fallen, their fourth studio album Avenged Sevenfold, and their fifth studio album Nightmare, they're epic albums that all fans of rock and metal should listen to.
There's three songs in particular that come extremely ...more
The perfect example of a great recording. There is nothing greater than just pure excitement and intense lyrics and rhythms. Not very often do you find something so violent and disturbing to be sang in such a tone that is positive, but in this song the tone and mood are just extraordinarily different and portray a new kind of feeling that is intend to scare and satisfy the listener... Murder. A gorgeously violent tune that soothes the ear while exiting the body. Nowhere else could you hear a song about all of the human desires together. Love, murder, and the unnatural. By far a 10/10
This needs to be number one tbh. This song is pretty much the definition of Avenged Sevenfold, and they put some of the most work into it!
M. Shadows and Zacky Vengeance 's insights weren't wrongful to Until the realization of this track, honestly this is one of the best, such a borrow of great guitar riffs and nice drumming.
This song is just the best in my opinion;
It has a hella fast paced rhythm made by one of the best drummers of all time (foREVer), probably Syn's best solo of his career, Shadows' beautiful voice AND a very catchy, yet complicated sound making it all so much enjoyable.
I can easily listen to this song ten times in a row without changing it, it's that perfect to my ears
I remember when I first heard this song from a friend and I instantly fell in love with it. This song got me interested in A7X so it has a very special place in my heart.
The Rev is like a machine! Shadows' voice gives you the chills - especially in the chorus like holy sweet jesus - Syn is so majestic I mean listen to that solo! The song is overall nothing but a little piece of heaven (hah the reference this song kicks ass) A7X ROCKS!
I love this song and I have to say this although it is not so related... This song have awesome drum cover by the rev and I think the rev is the most talented man in this band... His vocals are great! Good in keyboards/piano! Plays a little on guitar... And of course... 1 OF THE BEST DRUMMER IN THE WORLD! I love you jimmy
Absolutely Amazing and most fun and entertaining song to listen to whilst depressed...This probably in my opinion is the best song they've ever produced alongside my next favourite The Stage...Rev drumming was relentless and exceptional as always...Loved M.Shadows vocals here sounded a bit funny but adorable unlike Bat Country's vocals which sounded annoying though was undeniably a good song but not enough to be the best song off City Of Evil...in my opinion obviously...
In my opinion I really don't consider "Afterlife'' to be their best song when there are so many contenders for it some of which are equally good or even better than the track. Yes Afterlife has got a very clean and beautifully delivered vocals plus the sensational work from the instrumentalists but if you have listened to "The Beast and the Harlot", the work, energy and effort that was put here was totally at a heightened level.
This song is putting a curse on me. I can never, ever stay still while blasting it in my room. The whole band proved their elite qualities, but for this song, M Shadows shined brightest. Syn and Zacky proved venomous with their harmony duos, Johnny's bass was melodious, and The Rev was world class as always.
I don't know where to start. Ever sense I was a kid playing guitar hero 2 and smash hits, this song really struck my heart with greatness. This song really gets your butt off a chair and makes you wanna dance like a monkey. it really gets your head going and M Shadows really put a number on this master piece. I don't care what anyone says, this will always be my favorite song.
This song make me cry almost every time I listen to it. I believe it was the first full song that Syn wrote for A7X on his own, he poured his heart into this song. It means so much to me as it is written in memory of Jimmy (the best drummer of all time). Avenged Sevenfold write songs packed full of emotion and meaning. This song came straight from the heart. I love you Avenged.
The Best Song of A. S so far... Loved the lead guitar n the drum beats of this amazing beautiful song... So sweet n melodious song... Avenged Sevenfold has made...
Thanks to this band for gifting the world such a great song... It always is mindblowing for me whenever I here this song... So happy to have so far away in life... Life becomes cool good n rocking because of this song...! (Y) thumps up!
What Metallica did with "Nothing Else Matters" in the 90s, A7X did with "So Far Away" in the 2010s. They knew how to make an amazing song that toned down the headbanging moments and focus more on softer tones. Also the song itself is a great way to pay tribute to Jimmy the Rev. Especially in its music video. Apart from that, this has to be the second best song from Nightmare.
I can't describe how beautiful this song is. I didn't realize it when I heard it for the first time. This song can make you cry, the solo can make you feel the sorrow reflected in the song. A7X is amazing. RIP Rev.
This seriously needs to be ranked higher. This is one of their only political songs and the vocals in the song are so brutal, it is unlike most of their other work.
There's better songs by them but how is beast and the harlot and almost easy above critical acclaim? This song features Avenged Sevenfold sliding into progressive territory (which they do a lot but it's remarkably present in this song) and I love progressive rock/metal. It starts with the organ intro which evolves into the whole band, then it shifts into the really heavy 3/4 riff and when the time signature goes back to 4/4, Avenged Sevenfold's signature verses and choruses kick in. Perfect balance of both worlds.
This song is so epic! I love how within the first minute there are three different tempos. It starts off with the organ then you hear the typical dual guitar intro then it just goes into a whole new level of extreme and you hear M.Shadows start screaming. The Rev was epic (especially when he shouts "A Clone! ". This is one of the best songs to remember him by. The only thing that will make the song better is if it had an official music video. That would've been epic
Clearly the best Avenged Sevenfold song. Me and my dad both love this song and jam out to it all the time. My favorite part of this song is the drumming. It just go together perfectly, and of course The Rev did it so no match there(R.I.P.). Every word in this song is amazing, it all has meaning. I love this song a lot but can't decide if I like this song or Not Ready to Die better. - GuitarMan
From when the you press play to the time the song ends, you go on a ride that will shake even the most basic metal core listener to their core. Very good backup singers. M. Shadows cadence is also displayed in prominence and is his best on the album. Top 3 guitar solo in their catalogue as well.
The perfect song for any fan of rock music. Overall, it is a very hard-driving rock song. But during the chorus, M. Shadows sings with a rock ballad-like intensity that really makes it something different. Not their best song, but right up there.
I love this song. The lines were sang in a shouting kind of manner, but the chorus was like a breather because it had more melody into it. And also, the chorus was so catchy, after I play this song the chorus just keeps repeating on my mind like LSS.
This may be a little biased since this is the one that I listened to first, but this should definitely be in the top five. Almost easy and Afterlife are my two favorites so far!
This song gets you down to the soul with its melodies and all its different sections. This definitely needs to be ranked higher.
This is the song Jimmy called his masterpiece, and it truly is a masterpiece. It has deep, emotional lyrics, an incredible double-bass beat, one of the best solos Syn ever created next to Afterlife, and the most powerful ending to any album they've ever created. And it's ranked 17? You guys should really appreciate this song more. Shadows, Zacky and Syn all said in an interview it was their favorite song on Nightmare and that it when through tons and tons of work.
Although It deserves to be number 1 without question..I'm still happy to see it currently at number 12. I assumed it would be a buried gem..forgotten low within the 30's or 40's. This song is nightmares saving grace. As a true fan of this band, I can say that was a mainstream..generic album compared to their prior work. This song stood out and corrected that, fittingly at the end of the album. I don't know that they'll ever compose a song that makes me feel the way Save Me STILL makes me feel when I listen to it. If you haven't heard this song and your like this band..do your a favor and listen to it RIGHT NOW.
Most memorable song of the album Nightmare and not sure if I'd should pick Afterlife or this one, but it's ok this is the best for the moment
I am of the older generation and was never a fan of millenial music, and still am not (Avenged Sevenfold is special and is an exception). My generation favourites include The Trooper by Iron Maiden, You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC, She's Gone by Steelheart etc. I was one of those older generation fixated in the view that, as my generation call it, "manufactured bands" and "manufactured music" of the younger newer generation can never have that raw quality so strong that they transfer that raw music passion to their fans unlike the old days. That kind of music is hard to find in this generation (once again, Avenged Sevenfold is an exception). When I first heard Seize the Day on the radio, I was caught by surprise and was awestruck and amazed at the quality and obvious chemistry. For the first time, the generation we had called "manufactured" had proved this old man wrong and I am very sure many others of my generation who heard this over the radio (only too proud to admit it). ...more
I vote for this because this song is so fking underrated.
Watch their live in LBC and then you know what I am saying.
I love so far away while it was written for the Rev, it might be their best song or even the best sad rock song in 2000s, but it also means that this song was made and performed without the Rev and I felt a little bad about it every time I hear it. Nightmare, Afterlife and Dear God are all sick tracks, but I seriously listen to seize the day like 10 times a day(half are the LBC live version), I may be mad or something but I just cannot get over this song.
The song that made me fell in love with, not just A7X, but ROCK SONGS in general. Sorry guys, but I got to say I used to HATE rock at first. But thanks to this wonderfully crafted song, I received a sense of realisation as to how insightful rock songs can be. A power ballad with a unique tune, meaningful lyrics, touching music video and awesome guitar solo. How better can it get?
I love all their songs, but nothing beats how it all started. A7X FOR LIFE!
This song is just superb his song makes me cry every time I hear it the guitar solo is the best it just kills me this song has a great meaning hidden inside its just excellent
AVENGED SEVENFOLD ROCKS
A staple song by the band any true fan will put this somewhere in their top 10 at the least. So much energy when the lead vocals come in and a very catchy and addictive chorus. Amazing drumming by the rev shines through very bright on this song.
Very underrated from their earlier albums. This song is the perfect balance of screaming and singing. The revs drumming reaches epic levels by the time the third chorus rolls along.M. shadows vocals definitely reach the human soul in this one
Second Heartbeat is by far my all time favorite A7x song, sick vocals from Matt and amazing guitar solos from Syn and Zacky. The demo version has the sickest drums of any song they've done (R.I.P. the Rev) Extremely underrated but truly an amazing song.
Best song of A7x, with Matt actually screaming, awesome guitar solos and backing vocals. This song is really underrated. The song really makes me think of an epic battle, the vibe, the tone, the power. It's the best song of A7x
Meanwhile, the mice endure the wheel. Realm as ever! And I'm chained like a slave, trapped in the dark, death calls my name. And it seems it been buried alive.
This song has such beautiful harmonies, and it gets rough and makes you headbang toward the end of the song. This is almost all you need from an Avenged song!
This song deserves a place in the top 3 or at least in the top 5. Although this song doesn't have the beats by the Rev but it would've been the best a7x song with the rev's beats. But still, this song manages to be a perfect song! It starts with melodic guitar plucking, builds up with a good riff, powerful vocals by m shadows, the variation of the scale, the beats and the speed is innovative! Well, it is at least my all time favourite song! It inspires me a lot during bad times
This song has what I call "the ideal song format". That's any song which starts out nice and slow and makes you feel emotional, then as it goes on, makes you want to bang your head and shout the lyrics. Any song with this format is practically guaranteed to become one of my favorite songs ever, and that's why this is my favorite A7X song.
Love this intro, the chorus is super catchy, the solo is mind blowing and I've gotta say, Arin didn't do a bad job as The Revs replacement. This song is getting my hopes up and destroyed my fears that they were gonna screw up this album as many other bands are doing with their newest cds (Linkin Park). Can't wait for them to release the cd!
This one needs to be higher. This song is amazing. Afterlife is the only one that should be higher. The opening riff in this song is kick ass and the song has some great sections too. Totally awesome song and it is sad that this is not even top ten when it should be top 3
If this is what Avenged Sevenfold comes back with after the Rev's tragedy, and they're bringing us this kind of quality songs back to us, we're in for one hell on an amazing album on the 26th. I bet all fans are looking forward to it based on this amazing single.
This song is the best and is just like master of puppets from Metallica. This song made me like a7x much more. Amazing guitar and voice. This band has reached to the level of heavy metal bands like Metallica and Iron Maiden.
This needs to be ranked sooo much higher!
It is the one song that put them on the map and yet people will vote for the ones they first heard when the band was famous.
Though never forget where you come from!
I can't help but wonder what the heck is A Little Piece of Heaven doing there? It was kind of a circus for necrophiles.
This here, in my opinion, has the best lyrics Avenged Sevenfold has ever written.
The rest of Waking the Fallen should be here. The other albums had really annoying stuff, such as the aforementioned track and especially Afterlife. They're cheesy...
Waking the Fallen has A7X's best songs. A contender here should have been "The Wicked End", but people are just too mainstream...
Simply the best Avenged Sevenfold song, in my opinion. Really underrated, along with the album 'Waking the Fallen' as seen on this list. M. Shadows provides clean vocals along with screamed vocals on this song. The guitar riffs are both cool and catchy. This song has a really "heart-wrenching" story in it's lyrics.
Newer A7X fans should really listen to the 'Waking the Fallen' album thoroughly, for once, at least.
Best. A7x. SONG. EVER. Hands down!
Listen to the drums. Just listen to that!
The music here is more profound than in Afterlife. This song is so so underrated. Every part of this song is pure headbanging nectar! The growl, the riff, the smooth chorus voice... THIS IS THE BEST SONG BY THIS BAND. Nothing else comes even close. Plus, did I tell you about the drumming? Yea, listen to that.
This song needs to be much higher. It has great guitar work, a killer drum-line by the late, great Rev, and some awesome vocals from Shadows, both clean and dirty. Best of all, it is based upon the Biblical story where the band got their name. While their new stuff is also awesome, this is an incredible song that often gets overlooked,
The combination of screm and clean vocals together in the chorus is honestly amazing. I had all their songs on shuffle, and having not really listened to this album much I heard this song not even knowing what it was and I absolutely loved it. Definitely one of my favourite A7X songs it should be at least top 10 if not top 5
You hardly ever hear this song. You hardly ever hear a song this great. This song has some of the most impossible drumming that I have ever seen! The intro was amazing. And it being a verse from the bible too? Avenged Sevenfold really knows how to make a great song.
Its funny to see some of the songs that are at the top of the list. Every A7X song is amazing, but the ones at the top of the list are the ones that have been played the most on the radio. If you venture out into their music that didn't make the radio, you will find their best stuff.
There are many reasons I like this song the most. Unlike any other A7X songs, the melody is soft and the lyrics is touching and simple. One thing that definitely made up the songs is the guitar works, Synyster's solo ( IT DOESN'T SHOW UP IN THE MUSIC VIDEO) is completely outstanding for its length and the emotion inside it. I'm sure he had put all his passion and soul in the solo. This is one of the most epic song in rock n roll history.
Compared to the others, this is just awesome. Hey but this is a personal opinion. This song is what got me to avenged sevenfold
Doesn't deserve top ten in any way. Lyrics are just generic country music, vocals are mediocre (hardly any differing pitch), drumming is utterly pathetic, and bass is completely overshadowed. The only good part about this song is the guitar, and even then it's quite mellow. Potently one of their worst songs, and in no way does it compare to songs such as "save me", which is somehow lower than this pathetic excuse is.
While songs higher on this list are definitely deserving, I chose Dear God due to the fact that the song is proof that the band is capable of many genres. This song is more of a soft rock song with accents of country music with the steel guitar playing in the background
Dude this should not be down here! I swear there's got to be some kind of mistake. Welcome to the Family makes everyone feel like they belong and it tells you that you're not alone in this world. Yet it manages not to sound boring and preachy. Heck it's everything BUT boring and preachy! It's so catchy I'm actually happy when I get it stuck in my head. Whoever put A Little Piece Of Heaven before this is getting a fist in their face that song is creepy
One of their harder songs but still has it's slow parts and of course the typical amazing guitar solo in the middle. Reminds me of the way "Nightmare" and "Buried Alive" are layed out I guess probably because they are on the same album.
What... The... Heck! This song should totally be in the top 3! A7X is one of those bands where you can't choose a favorite, but they have awesome songs!
R.I.P REV... May God richly bless you!
-Sincerely, Hitman Sevenfold
Grabs you from the start, not a song you can stop halfway. I think it should be up there with bat country and nightmare. The drumming is amazing and the solos amazing, and it's a really catchy song
This song is a masterpiece. It introduces even to the toughest men to cry with that candy beautiful slow nada of the beginning...
Ok I am a die hard Avenged Sevenfold fan and everyone of their songs are great. Everyone says that every band has a best song but I think every song is the best for Avenged m/. But if I really had to pick one song to be my favorite its definitely this song. It's an utter masterpiece. The power of his voice during Staring at the carnage... (the second time) it is unbelievable.
Why? This is a great song should be in the top 5,10 or number 1 instead. This song have what it takes. My top ten list is.1.M.I. A 2. Afterlife 3. So Far Away 4. Almost easy 5. Seize The Day 6. Dear God 7. Hail To The King 8. A Little Piece of Heaven 9. Buried Alive 10. Bat Country. Somtimes I sing all of this songs especially M.I. A and I say VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
I'm surprised this song isn't rated higher. This is one of the better war songs out there, since it covers life after a war, making it unique. The guitar riffs and solos absolutely rule, and M. Shadows voice versatility is on full display. Have to love this song if you are a fan of A7X!
ITunes says I've listened to this song 1429 times, which is about 214 hours if I'm doing the math right. This is my favourite song of all time, and nothing I can say here will do it justice. My favourite songs are the ones where the artist puts raw emotion into them, and if an adaptation of a friend's suicide note doesn't fall into that category, then I don't know what will. It's a powerful and emotional masterpiece, and there is not a single second in it I would change. A7X's first song I heard was Afterlife, and when I hear a song I like, I make it a mission to listen to every other song that band has made, and that's how I came across this work of art. I sincerely wish others would do the same, and hopefully people are visiting this site to do just that. Please listen to this song, and I mean really listen... to every word, every note, every second of this song. Only then can you really appreciate a masterpiece like this.
Wow, that got really mushy...
Absolutely beautiful musical composition, this is truly a song that builds to very dramatic moments with appropriate relationships between the piano and traditional rock instruments. Lyrics are rather depressing, and while perhaps not not on the same scale as other Avenged songs (Critical Acclaim, Remenissions & So Far Away come to mind for those wiser words) are still very meaningful and thought provoking. Not all Avenged fans may like the song, but anyone who appreciates musical craftsmanship should give it a listen.
There are many songs by this band better than I won't see you tonight, but this deserves to be at least in top ten.
This song, especially in the middle part and in the ending, shows the progressive side of this band, and it has deep lyrics and a great meaning
This sound is definitely one of their bests. I've been listening to them since City of Evil and this has recently become one of my favorites. Should easily be top 5, yet even after all the years of listening to them I don't know that I can put together a top 5 that will stay that way.
I expected this to be way higher on the list near the number one spot, but this is honestly way too low. This definitely is their best song radio wise, and it is a perfect blend between the magical work of their talent and not being to radio-friendly.
This song rocks. Black Ops 2 Zombies Just Went Perfect With It. Best Avenged Sevenfold Song Next to Afterlife. But personally I think A Little Pieces of Heaven is almost their masterpiece. This song is hard-core, insane, dangerously deep and dark, like a mid-evil ancient beast that has awoken and released it's rock heart. This song is epic. The guitar solo where it takes on the chorus's rhythm is awesome.
Nightmare is my favorite songs and in my opinion one of the most awesome metal songs ever made but Shepherd of Fire at 23 is absolutely ridiculous. Same with Hail to the King and This Means War's ratings. Such underrated songs.
This song is awesome! Perfect way to open up the new album and it's a fantastic transition from Nightmare to the classic heavy metal A7X is bringing to the table in Hail to the King.
Honestly, this is my favorite one of their songs. The lyrics and the way that the background accentuates them really flow together well. It's completely amazing and I was shocked that it wasn't in the top ten comments.
Possibly one of the only Avenged Sevenfold songs that has a groove, that isn't a heap of boring like most of the content of their new album, drum part is absolutely ballistic, solo is off the everloving chain. Main riff is ballzy as.
This song is definitely the in the top 3. Love everything about it especially that epic solo by synyster gates and the 808s are a very nice touch and bring a much fuller experience.
Just awesome! Feeling of domination is really ignored thing in music industry & if you are fed up of romance and interested in hardcore rock this song is the one you listen
I Think This is a MASTERPIECE, this song is amazing, and some of the best guitar of any of their songs, ever. This song should definitely be #2, It is nearly as awesome as Afterlife, and better than even nightmare in my opinion!
My Top 5 List for this Band:
2. Coming Home
3. Almost Easy
5. A Little Piece of Heaven/Shepherd of Fire (I Can't Decide between these two)
Sorry Nightmare, You're just not as good as some of these in my opinion.
Why this song is below Hail to the King, I can't even comprehend. Easily the best song on the album. I blame mainstream radio for not playing this song but choosing to play songs like Hail to the king instead. Definitely in my top 5 favorite songs. If you haven't heard this song before, you need to youtube it, now.
Off their new album "Hail To The King" Coming home in my opinion is very similar to "Afterlife" with the fast and high pitched guitar. But something about this song has more emotion to it which is why it is my new favorite Avenged Sevenfold song and why it deserves to be #1 foREVer.
This song must have been an absolute treat for Syn and Zacky. Guitar riff and solo are just so insane! Definitely one of the best Avenged Sevenfold songs purely on the fact that it takes on a faster Iron Maiden pace, whilst still encapsulating the essence of A7X.
One of my all-time favorite Avenged Sevenfold songs. Synyster Gates gives some of the best riffs I've heard in all of their albums, topped only by Beast and the Harlot in my opinion, Brooks Wackerman preforms an outstanding drum beat, M. Shadows' vocals sound incredibly powerful, and the bridge of the song is simply amazing. Definitely deserves the number 3 spot if not number 1
Best story, best dramatic tempo/melody transitions. This is A7x's November Rain but rather than telling the story of tragic love it expresses the ultimate tragedy of relationship between humanity and death.
Just wow! Both in terms of instrumentation and lyricism this song was very well thought out (not to forget the music video). This is clearly the ultimate best that a mainstream band can offer. Avenged Sevenfold hit the nail on the head with this record. I'm high in anticipation for their next release.
Should be WAY higher. A modern day prog metal masterpiece that surpasses anything else they've ever done. Complex structure, technically impressive and still very memorable, The Stage has it all.
Personally my favorite song by Avenged Sevenfold. Why it is not in the top ten is very hard to believe. The riffs are heavy, the lyrics and melodies are heavenly and very emotional. I think this sing should be number one on this list. End of story.
This is the most well written song I've ever heard. The way the guitar fits so well with the violin and how it transitions from soft musicals to the hard stuff we've grown to love from A7X is perfection. Lyrically this is a very interesting song with a great concept.
This song is almost perfect. The intro and the outro are the highlights, but the main part is amazing too. The only thing that could make it better is if the sympohonic band played through the whole song, or other parts. This is still the GREATEST A7X song.
Underestimated song. It's progressive, smooth, very vivid and extraordinary. I believe it's one of the best songs of CoE for sure, and it belongs to their "American twisted dream" style.
Nightmare no.2?! It's incredibly commercialized, along with most the songs in the top ten... People need to get off there ass and listen to the rest of sevenfold's music.
I've been with a7x since they started out, and I can honestly say this song is beautifully composed, and freakishly good.
People need to learn that the best songs aren't always the single and video releases!
This isn't a song it's a masterpiece. Jimmy had that special gift of creating music like this he was and still is the best writer ever no one will ever be able to recreate his genius. Knowing his story and how he was taken from us just breaks me every time I hear this song.
We love you Jimmy R.I.P
This was the Rev's masterpiece that he had been working in since he and Syn were in Pinkly Smooth. This song is incredible. The Rev's vocals in this song came off a demo track! Also, this is such an emotional song! I cried when I listened to it. My favorite song by A7X!
By far their most meaningful song. The piano piece in this song is beautifully complex and speaks directly to the soul. This song along with I won't see you tonight have some kickass piano and vocals that echo through your entire body. These songs are experiences.R.I. P Rev
