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]

At the beginning of this article is the following statement:

    Avenged Sevenfold (sometimes abbreviated as A7X) are an American heavy metal band

I must ask you to change it, thay are nor and never were a METAL bandwhat they do doesn't classify as Heavy Metal, this is even a negation of the definition of this term on wikipedia. The most appropriate definition for them is metalcore.

If they could be classified metal band, they would have an entry in Metal Archives for a long time, but they have not, which means that even metal fans don't accept them as metal band.

The picture[edit]

The picture should be updated to a newer one either with Arin in it or just the DeathBat. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.202.152.65 (talk) 00:09, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 18 October 2013[edit]

please change 'avenged sevenfold is an American rock band' to 'avenged sevenfold is an American heavy metal band'

Not done: The infobox lists a wider range of genres, and this source, for example, lists punk as well as metal. So perhaps the broader rock genre is the best to mention. --Stfg (talk) 15:58, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
Actually, since the band started in Metalcore, and has continued onwards as primarily a metal/punk band, I see no problem with at least the specification of Metal, eventhough it should be specified as Heavy Metal. Noting the extreme difference between Rock, Metal, and Heavy Metal. With this in mind, I'm going to change the article to reflect this, until somebody provides sufficient proof otherwise.
