Best Songs From Avenged Sevenfold's Waking the Fallen


The Top Ten

1 Second Heartbeat

This song is better live in the LBC - danimey

Really kick-ass metalcore song, perfect guitar riffs plus amazing scream, make this song best metalcore song ever! - TheBerserker

Unholy confessions is overrated

I have to pick this one as number 1! 7 minutes of a true classic!

2 Unholy Confessions

Kick ass guitar riff! M shadows sounds great. For those who like the heavier more screamo/metalcore A7X and for the city of evil and on fans, this song is almost a bridge between the two styles.

I'll admit the guitar sounds pretty cool... but the screaming, like with every other song on this album (with the exception of I Won't See You Tonight Part 1) puts me off of it. - Lem

The only song I didn't like off this album was desecrate through reverence. Easily the best a7x album!

It is in the right place(number 1)

3 I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 1

One of their most deep-feeling music type

"Sorrow... Sank deep inside my blood..."

Epic song... - ImagineACoolUsernameHere

This is their best song from their metalcore era - christangrant

4 Chapter Four

Love this song, the mix between the Screams and the singing is just plain awesome. The Guitar riffs are supreme, and as always, the vocals are amazing. Kinda of underrated on the Waking the Fallen album if you ask me.

Best song period

"Blood is spilt and man will follow (Rain and dark)
Infernal man, (rain and dark, the other born black night) punishment too great to bear
Raise your head and taste the courage (the one of light)
Fall from grace, unholy night
I've come here to kill you
Won't leave until you've died
Murder born of vengeance
I closed my brothers eyes tonight
Blood is spilt and man will follow (Rain and dark)
Infernal man, (rain and dark, the other born black night) punishm
Raise your head and taste the courage (the one of light)
Fall from grace, unholy night
I've come here to kill you
Won't leave until you've died
Murder born of vengeance
I closed my brothers eyes tonight
It's cold tonight as the clouds turn gray
And from my hands to my brothers grave
You took his side, you took his gift
Feel the power of a fallen man, crestfallen man
Far away in this land I must go
Out of the site of the One
A punishment sent from his hand
A hardship ...more

5 Remenissions

My favorite song in general right now. Best screams I have heard in a while and the chorus is very catchy. If you like Second Heartbeat, then you will like this song. It should be ranked a lot closer to second heartbeat.

The accoustic part in this song is just amazing. Add vocals to it and it is just pure mindblowing. I thought Unholy Confessions, Second Heartbeat, and I Won't See You Tonight Pt.1 were really good until I realized the accoustic part in this song.

6 And All Things Will End

Never did listen to this song much. One day it came on my phone and I loved it! It is very underrated


This and shattered by broken dreams are amazing endings to those albums

7 Clairvoyant Disease

Very underrated song. The solo and bridge is just excellent! Shadows mixed vocals between scream and "not scream" fits perfect, and the guitar solo is both very cool and emotional

I’ve come so far it’s been so long!

8 Eternal Rest

How is this 12th?!?!? It is amazing! The guitars are awesome.. They change with the song, and so do the drums! And Matt and Jimmy (RIP) come together for some amazing vocals! And of course, we can't forget Johnny on the bass, for only being 19 years old, he did amazing!

Jimmy didn't sing on this album. It sound like him but it is Matt that's singing the screaming vocals. - DavAasKaz

The beginning of this song is the heaviest part on the album!

Number one on my list, but I Won't See You Tonight Part 1 is Number One also.

9 Desecrate Through Reverence

The powerful riffs and screams are breath taking

The guitar work is amazing. The screams are done perfectly. The lyrics are the definition of amazing, especially the last 2 verses.

This song rocks! How is this not higher? Every song from this album is good, but this one is awesome!

Best song on this album in my opinion it's so catchy and I like the screams

10 I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 2

Great guitar solo!

Very emotionally jarring after the mellow in comparison part one. Fits the themes of the two parts perfectly and is very intense. This is truly one of if not THE best of A7X's metalcore songs.

I liked it! What can I say

The Contenders

11 Radiant Eclipse

Super underrated.
Seriously just listen to it, the intro may be a little drawn out but once the verse kicks I. It is amazing!
Really nice ending too, great clean vocals

I don't know why this is at the bottom. It's better than a lot of songs off the album. In fact, the only song off the album I don't like is Desecrate through reverence!

Come on, this song should be above Desecrate Through Reverence and I Won't See You Tonight Part 2. Such an underrated song.

Best song, no doubt. The intro is what keeps people from listening further
