New Album?[edit]

Hey has anyone heard anything about the new album that they say they're working on. All I know is that they said it was going to be heavy and that they were going to go back to making hard rock songs that were "longer and grittier". They said they were going to go into the studio a month ago but I haven't heard anything. Has anyone heard anything worthy enough of starting an article about? September 21, 2009 MJM

Yh on 5 Nov i got a message from facebook from the avenged sevenfold page. It said album update from zacky v and all this is from the message- It has been awhile since we have shed light on our current doings. Well here is a long awaited update into the world of A7X..

We came off of the road amidst one of the most turbulent times in history. Everything going on around us was overwhelming, frightening, frustrating and confusing. I must confess that it was also very exciting to me. I’m sure you can share my sentiment. We have been focused on only one thing, writing and preparing to record what to me is our most personal and epic Avenged Sevenfold album. The reason is the fact that everything happening around us in the entire world might be a once in a life time source of inspiration and direction. We have been harnessing every aspect of what makes A7X truly unrelenting and building off of that. I don’t think we sleep too much anymore because of the excitement we feel while writing this album. Only a world spinning out of control could inspire the music and vision we have now. Once again it is fucking exciting. We will continue finalizing our songs until we feel every note does both You as well as Us justice. We are also in the final stages of solidifying our production team, studios and engineers so that the second the axe falls and the album is written we will spend day and night in the studio until it is complete. This album will definitely take you on a very dark journey... Sincerely Zacky Vengeance

Red question icon with gradient background.svg Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. I've redacted the edit request, which was a dump of the entire article. Unsure the exact change desired. Please list exactly what you want changed. -- ferret (talk) 00:56, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Avenged Sevenfold is not emo[edit]

It says that they are described previously as emo, but they never were an emo band. They were a metalcore band. People who did say that don't know what emo is. Plus, here's a proof that they were never an emo band. This page will tell you if a band is emo or not.

The statement clearly has sources, so. -- ferret (talk) 21:35, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Stop vandalizing the page! They are not an emo band. They played metalcore and are now a hard rock/heavy metal band, who has experimented with other genres such as Symphonic metal, Avante-garde metal, speed metal and Thrash metal. 99.108.198.222 (talk) 19:05, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
