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


Avenged Sevenfold but Jazz?[edit]

I was reading on Wikipedia's article about the Romanian metalcore band Goodbye to Gravity and Colectiv nightclub fire incident which was killed four of five members from Goodbye to Gravity.

Avenged Sevenfold's early career was metalcore and it is can be found on their debut album. Avenged Sevenfold, however, change their style for the first time from metalcore to hard rock/heavy metal style with their self-titled album (including "Dear God", "Almost Easy", and "Scream").

At the time, I was dreaming that Avenged Sevenfold change their style again for the second time from hard rock/heavy metal style to more pop-oriented style with their upcoming album. I was listen to "Dear God" (a country-rock song from the album Avenged Sevenfold) in my dream with original recording.

I was dreaming that Avenged Sevenfold re-recorded "Dear God" with jazz style and not include any electric guitar-based hard rock/heavy metal style. In the new recording of "Dear God" the following members that re-recorded the song: M. Shadows (lead vocals), Zacky Vengeance (piano), Synyster Gates (saxophone), Johnny Christ (bass guitar), and Brooks Wackerman (percussion).

In the coda section, the original recording of the song is guitar solo, but the new recording of the song more length and not ended faded-out with extended saxophone solo played by Synyster Gates. The saxophone melody on the new recording is similar to the original guitar solo melody.

I don't know if this recording including piano and local Philharmonic Orchestra, but Avenged Sevenfold will retired completely from hard rock/heavy metal style because they fear Goodbye to Gravity's incident.

Semi-protected edit request on 11 January 2016[edit]

Metallica3124 (talk) 01:25, 11 January 2016 (UTC) add progressive metal to the genre list. This band falls under that category due to their use of time signature changes, complex melodies layered with harmonies, and long epic jams!

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)
