Best Songs From Avenged Sevenfold's Waking the Fallen


The Top Ten

1 Unholy Confessions 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!

2 Second Heartbeat Second Heartbeat

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!

This used to be number one and it still should be.

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

Epic song... - ImagineACoolUsernameHere

4 Chapter Four 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.

6 And All Things Will End And All Things Will End


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

7 Eternal Rest 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!

8 Clairvoyant Disease 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

9 Desecrate Through Reverence Desecrate Through Reverence

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

This song is the definition of heavy

Darkened eyes youll see there is no hope no savior in me -best part of the song

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

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.

11 Radiant Eclipse 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
