1 Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold

My favorite song is critical acclaim. It has a killer guitar solo and great lyrics from Matt Shadows and James Sullivan. This one deserves a higher spot.

It was this album that got me into Slipknot with songs like Dead Memories, Snuff and Sulfur and it was songs like Vendetta that made me believe Joey Jordison is the best drummer alive today - Danielsun182

DT - one of the best bands out there.. Even if you don't like metal or are not educated in music.. You can tell these guys are brilliant.. Both technically and compositional. - BimmyJim
