City Of Evil [Explicit] Awesome Considering this is Avenged Sevenfold's breakthrough album, there must be a good reason for it. In a decade where so-called metal bands compose four-minute songs of formulaic, downtuned and overly-melodic riffs, harsh yelling and repetitive breakdowns, Avenged Sevenfold brings something new to the table with "City of Evil". This album shows them progressing with their sound. "Sounding The Seventh Trumpet" was their fastest and rawest, but their least-professional sounding and you could tell they were younger when they wrote it. "Waking The Fallen" showed much better songwriti ng and a bigger, more epic sound, bringing guitar solos into the mix (including great ones such as in "Eternal Rest" or "Second Heartbeat"). Now comes "City of Evil". What sound is presented here, you may ask? Well, "City of Evil" sounds pretty similar to "Waking The Fallen", however, on this album that is far less screaming, the tempos are slowed down a little, there are more intricate riffs, an even more epic sound and many more guitar solos. So the speed and screaming of some of the stuff on "Waking The Fallen" HAS vanished, but with "City of Evil", Avenged Sevenfold added some amazing, new elements to their sound. Here are the highlights of the album: "Beast and the Harlot": A modern classic that starts off slow, featuring a piano and a complex 9/8 time signature. The song picks up with a great guitar riff, then explodes with the same riff played one octave lower, so it gets much heavier. A melodic, sing-a-long chorus and an amazing guitar solo, one of the greatest around, are also featured, along with an intense bridge towards the end that goes back into the chorus. What a classic! "Burn It Down": A faster, even more intense song with heavier, rawer riffs and a blistering, dual-guitar melody in the beginning. Another melodic, sing-a-long chorus is featured here. "Bat Country": Fast, punk-ish riffs, a blazing guitar solo, amazing guitar duals and a catchy chorus are featured here. The verses are also intense, and a soft section kicks in every now and again, making for some great tension and release. That makes the song even more interesting, AND even more professional. By the way, this song was also written about the Johnny Depp cult film "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". I highly recommend you watch that movie! "Trashed and Scattered": One of my favorite guitar intros on the album kicks this song off, before going into blazing speeds, blistering shred solos and a catchy, shout-a-long chorus. Just an overall incredible song! "Seize The Day": A beautiful, piano-driven ballad with some jaw-dropping guitar work, not to mention some heart-melting verses and choruses. One of the best, metal ballads of recent years. "Strength of the World": The longest song on the album, this is a Middle- Eastern tinged headbanger with heavy riffs and an awesome, shout-a-long chorus. So while much of the screaming and metronome-pushing tempos of "Waking The Fallen" have vanished, the scales are evenly balanced with all that was gained with this album. It's a modern classic that can be listened to over and over again, I know I've done that. But for those that still haven't heard this, check it out NOW!!! Thanks for the time, and peace.
