"Warmness on the Soul" is the first EP/single by Avenged Sevenfold. It was released on August 8, 2001 by Good Life Recordings. The release features the video for the title track, "Warmness on the Soul" as an Enhanced CD bonus. The EP was the first release to feature guitarist, Synyster Gates. All of the songs are included on Avenged Sevenfold's debut album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, except for the heavy metal version of "To End the Rapture", which was later featured on the album's re-release by Hopeless Records.
The music video consists of scenes of the band performing, playing near the beach with Zacky Vengeance on lead guitar. The video centers around a woman who is looking for the band members, who are wandering through city streets as she searches for them. Then the band walks onto a stage and performs the rest of the song.
The band members' names seem to be different than their current names in the credits. For example, M. Shadows is credited "Shadows" and Synyster Gates is credited "Synyster Gaytes" . This is probably because their stage names were not completely final at the time and the fact that on the original release of Sounding the Seventh Trumpet no one had their stage names except The Rev and Zacky Vengeance. Johnny Christ was not a member at the time.
