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


Genre[edit]

I suppose it's that time again. There appears to be an ongoing back and forth genre war again over "heavy metal", which was in place until June 28th, and "rock band". The archive is FULL of sections on this topic with no real clear consensus that I can see. It just flares up periodically. Could we please pause in making changes on this and try to come to a reliably source-backed consensus first? Pinging @Metalac1406 and Statik N. -- ferret (talk) 18:44, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 24 January 2017[edit]

From the article: " Nightmare contains further deviations, including a piano ballad called "Fiction", progressive metal-oriented track "Save Me" and a heavy metal sound with extreme vocals and heavier instrumentation on "God Hates Us" and "Not Ready to Die". That is inaccurate, as the song Not Ready to Die does not belong in the Nightmare album but is a single created for Call of duty: Black ops, so should be corrected 2A01:388:2E9:150:0:0:1:27 (talk) 01:23, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

'The Stage' received generally favorable reviews, not 'universal acclaim' (a quick check on Metacritic or a sample of reviews will support this). 88.163.60.69 (talk) 08:57, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

 Done Per Metacritic, and the main article The Stage (album). Clearly did not have universal acclaim, which fails WP:V. @Jd02022092: As info. -- ferret (talk) 13:59, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
