Avenged SevenfoldUploaded by BKAllmighty
Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative rock band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.
The versatility, the musicianship, the tribute to classic metal, with the addition and willingness to experiment with something new that has not been beat to death, all contribute to how great this band is. Oh yeah... and Syn Gates is INCREDIBLE, his tone? His feel? Is he a technical virtuoso the likes of Steve Vai or Paul Gilbert? Maybe not quite there, (though he is certainly close, and possibly just as good but prefers to do things more musical? ), but his ability to create this wicked mesh of dark carnival meats metal meats classical meats every other style you've heard, is just insane. Everybody is this band is super skilled... and M Shadows is the male Janis Joplin of metal/hard rock in my opinion...
Avenged Sevenfold is the epitome of modern metal. In my opinion, they are literally perfect. M. Shadows is an awesome vocalist and the lyrics often focus on the darker side of human nature and the realities of life. Every other one of their members is also incredibly skilled, Zachy is an amazing rhythm guitarist, Johnny is an awesome bass guitarist, and the Rev is one of the best modern drummers ever. But my favorite thing about this band has to be Synyster Gates. Holy crap. This guy is the definition of a modern guitar god and his solos are some of the most badass and ear-pleasing solos that I have ever heard. My favorite thing about Rock and Metal is the guitar and Avenged Sevenfold is special to me because they place lots of emphasis on the guitar and Johnny, Zachy, and Synyster combined create some of the most badass solos and riffs ever that I could headbang to all day long. These guys really combine classic metal with modern metal in their own distinct style to make some of the ...more
Avenged is blessed with incredibly talented members whose musical ability doesn't temper their capacity to rock out. Many metal bands are plagued by non-existent musicianship, yet people love them because they put on a great, savage show. I love A7X because they are musicians who know how to shred and still have visceral, melodic tunes that touch the heart, as well as lyrics that talk to the soul about the realities of life, rather than cheesy, irksome ballads of broken hearts and lost love. Keep rocking, guys.
So deep and diverse in addition to their prodigious talent. They reinvent themselves with each new album, and have long been universally regarded within the music industry as the best live show on Earth. But let's get down to real meat of this conversation and talk about why A7X is the best band in the world right now: Avenged Sevenfold is #1 because they have the best guitarist in the world playing on their team, the awe-inspiring Synyster Gates. The guy is a virtuoso in the studio & a master at riding the lightning in front of jam packed arenas and stadiums on the road. In addition to their musical attributes, these are just straight up good human beings. Avenged Sevenfold always treat their fans with the utmost respect and patience. They love America; they love playing with the USO for the troops overseas; and they enjoy working with veterans in their free time too. They also have the one thing no one else in metal has going for them right now. The same thing that made Rock so big ...more
My favorite band today, they are not metal (in my opinion) but they are a great band with excellent songwriting abilities awesome guitars great bass absolutely amazing vocals and in their albums when jimmy was still alive some of the best drums out there, overall an awesome extremely talented band, they are personally one of my favorite bands of all time in any genre along with rush, queen, nirvana, queens of the stone age, Metallica, megadeth, pantera, manowar, death, and black Sabbath.
Avenged sevenfold is simply the best there is and I gotta agree bullet for my valentine, slipknot and disturbed are all really good but not even close to avenged sevenfold, they have songs anywhere from so far away to I wont se you tonight part 2 and all of them are amazing! A7X for ever... R.I.P. Jimmy (The Rev) Sullivan
Amazing band. Every song seems so new, and I respect the fact that they make music for the sake of music and does not always stay in their own genre. This is inspiration for me becase that actually shows their bravery in the music industry. And most heavy metal bands these days have to talk about death very often. But avenged sevenfold has deep, meaningful lyrics that help in life. I hope all the best for them and I'm pretty sure they have a lot more exciting pieces awaiting. I love Avenged Sevenfold
I mostly listen to hard rock, and metal as a whole has never really appealed to me. Avenged Sevenfold, however, is different. They're metal, but they're more in the vein of original metal from the 70's mixed in with modern metal. They aren't unintelligible, they don't scream, and they still deliver all the power and emotion that I expect from a good band.
A7x have been influenced by many a great bands; Metallica, iron maiden, black sabbath, pantera etc. internationally recognised and easily distinctive. They were even asked by Call of Duty to write not one but two songs for Black ops1 and Black ops2. Lets put it this way, bullet for my valentine doesn't fill up when let arena.
avenged sevenfold has been the best since they started, they never fail to please to all of their heavy metal fans they are beast live, and on track it just doesn't get any better than this AVENGED SEVENFOLD RULES and this is why they are number one and thats where they will stay
bullet 4 my valentine, system of a down, korn slipknot slayer and metallica are all great, but a7x tops them all. I can listen to their awesomeness any time. love them forever and alter bridge are the best hard rock. possibly beating a7x but they are still the best metal band.
A7x has such a range of music and all of it is awesome. If you can't vote for Avenged Sevenfold then who can you vote for. Although they never will probably replace rev the the standard he was they carry on ( get it) creating music that tops all others. We all miss the rev R.I.P.
With M. Shadows on vocals, Zacky Vengance as Rhythm Guitarist and backing vocals, Synyster Gates as lead guitarist, Johnny Christ as bass guitarist and Arin Ilejay on drums, this band proves to be almost godlike. After the death of Jimmy " the rev" Sullivan, Avenged Sevenfold had a difficult time. They released the album "Nightmare" and eventually the song "Carry On" and continuing in honor of Jimmy. This band has released 5 studio albums, multiple compilation albums, and is working on another.
Every album is different from the other, every album is more or less worth listening from the beginning until the end and with every new release they show they can do whatever they want and still be good at it
Avenged Sevenfold is the most special and best band ever, everything they do is just amazing. What is Bullet For My Valentine doing in 2? Sure they can sound good sometimes but compared to a7x they are nothing.
Avenged Sevenfold are amazing band among all, the person who hates a7x are not metal fans, synyster gates guitarist cool and too Top list in the world, I like a7x and they are my favourite band among all...R.I.P. the REV
Really good band, one of the few bands that do the rough-soft vocal transition in songs the way it should be done, but anyone that listens to the band probably misses the Rev's incredible backing vocals
Avenged Sevenfold should deserve this because the song their play live is just awesome. I think they are the best live band because the song they played live is just as good as the studio version.
Best lead guitarist of any modern band. Best solos I've heard since bands like Megadeth and Metallica. Awesome singer. Great bassist and rhythm guitarist as well. Awesome drummer. These guys rule.
It's simply the best band Despite all that has gone through they are still holding up and give us the best songs
The insane riffs, the mind-blowing drumming, the versatile vocals, growling in some parts, melodic in others... All this contributes to make Avenged Sevenfold a great band
Synyster Gates' Solos & M. Shadows' vocals make me an Avenged Sevenfold fan, they are the gods of modern metal & with them heavy metal has a very bright future...
Never listened to heavy metal before but absolutely love their new album 'Hail to the king'! Definitely better than slip knit or bullet for my valentine hands down.
Without a doubt the best melodic metal band ever. Syn's melody is unbeatable especially with the harmony of zacky, not to mention with the depth of Johnny and the the amazing beats and gut busting fills by the rev is unfortunately no longer with us. Frontman Matt leads them to victory they deserve number 1
Easily Avenged. No competition, they take the best from old bands such as Iron Maiden, Metallica, Pantera, etc.. How can the other bands on this list even compete?..
