Music



I wanted to switch gears today and talk about something different. Avenged Sevenfold is one of my all time favorite bands. I've followed them since they pretty much started. I've been listening to them through their ups, and their downs, their good albums, and the not so good ones.

Now where did this come from you might ask. Last night, as I couldn't sleep, I stumbled across a new song of theirs, "Not Ready to Die." It may not be their best song, but I still love it all the same. They've made a drastic change in their style and what they sing about, ever since The Rev died a little over a year ago.

Well, I'll stop rambling about them now, the song is now on Itunes, if you're interested. If you aren't, you won't hurt my feelings.

Is there any bands that you've followed since day one?

  2. I've been to a few of their shows. Once at Warp Tour, and then another time at the House of Blues in Orlando. I like them.

  6. I've never been a big follower of bands, period. I just kinda find songs I like and go with that. :D Any other recommendations from these guys?

  7. My friends are really into this band, and even made a cover for a talent show. The band itself does have some nice chops!

  8. @Xenototh, I have no idea where to even begin, It really depends on my mood each day, because every album is different.

  9. I saw these guys a couple years ago and I thought they were alright. I was given free tickets which is why I went, because I don't like this type of music all that much. They weren't bad though.

  11. I only listen to a select few of their songs, but I will admit they've got an awesome name for a band, and... in the end, isn't that all that really matters?

  14. Last year, "Natural causes" it's what their last album "nightmare" was about. One of the songs "fiction" was the last song the Rev played in.

  15. Don't like A7X unfortunately :(, but I can see the pleasure in following a band from day one. I guess the band I've liked since day one that is doing good is Foxy Shazam.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  32. I don't particularly like Sevenfold. I remember listening to INcubus a lot, not that they're any good now. But they used to be pretty decent.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  40. There was a period when I only listened to Avenged Sevenfold, they're still great I just don't listen to them that much anymore :>

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've never actually listened to them. I've just heard the tribute album that Vitamin String Quartet did.

    ReplyDelete
  42. ^^ Vitamin String Quartet is great.

    I've only heard a few songs from AS. They were fine, but I haven't actively started to look into them yet.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm not a big fan, but some of their songs are great, Afterlife for example.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I followed Machinae Supremacy from quite an early stage on. Really love their music.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I can't say I'm a music fan, as my taste are quite weird. They're usually tied to a piece of media that I've been watching (or playing). Case in point: I'm listening to the pokemon orchestra from the TV show right now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. im a big fan, really love their music.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm glad you posted about a7x. I was privileged to see them a few months before the rev died. Reading this blog actually made me sad. :(

    I'll definitely be checking this song out. I too have been following them for years now loving pretty much all their music starting with Waking the Fallen. Good or bad, they have my support.

    ReplyDelete
  48. As terrible as it is about the Rev, it's amazing that Portnoy plays with them now.

    ReplyDelete
  49. They are an overall good band with a few meh songs. But Little Piece of Heaven is by far their best.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Havn't heard any of there songs for a few years, but I remember they were pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
