Perfect Lines Demo
Upon first listen, I completely disliked Nelson's music project known as "Perfect Lines" when compared to his former band, My Heart to Joy. Despite this, after a few listens, I was able to really enjoy the songs on the extended play, with Nelson's enhanced vocal style from "Reasons to Be" being carried over in conjunction with tremendous guitars, keyboard, and synth.
Avenged Sevenfold Sounding the Seventh Trumpet
Not too bad, not all that rememorable is the defining statement of this album. Each part of the band on this album generally sounds like every other metalcore quartet from the time. Despite this flaw, the band steps their game up on tracks such as Turn The Other Way and An Epic of Time Wasted. Even on tracks which are borderline awful, despite being filled with raw emotion, like We Come Out At Night, the band manages to spice things up with things such as a piano outro, making the album all the more listenable.
Avenged Sevenfold Waking the Fallen
From beginning to end, this album is brilliant. Even if it may take you a few listens to actually become interested with some of the lyrical content (And All Things Will End and Clairvoyant Disease), Avenged Sevenfold craft their magnum opus ala tracks such as I Won't See You Tonight Part 1, Chapter Four, Remenissions, etc., constantly keeping the listener enthralled and enticed by the fluctuations of vocal style from Shadows. The best of the band, particularly Gates and Vengeance are standout on this album, giving one a flaq towards old-Killswitch Engage influences within the context of each track. The only problem with this album is that th
Avenged Sevenfold City of Evil
Despite what a lot of people say, concerning the dramatic change in musical style for this album, City of Evil is a good listen. From lyrical references to drugs, movies, tragic events, and the bible, Avenged Sevenfold manages to always keep you entertained (except for Strength of the World). A prominent change on the album, is Johnny Christ's role on bass. On City of Evil, he is utilized more and can be heard. The rest of the band are still as good, despite the change in Shadows' voice.
Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold
While most of the music that appears on this album seems to be nothing, but corporate trash, a few songs are very redemptive. However, the biggest problem with this album is that none of the songs actually fit together smoothly. In other words, apart from sem-decent craftsmanship, they don't know what band they are.
Avenged Sevenfold Nightmare
I have to say average, due to the fact that most of the songs on the album sound like they took their structure from the self-titled release, or were just b-sides rewritten to follow suit. While Shadows' vocals are nothing special (except for those on God Hates Us and So Far Away), Mike Portnoy does an impressive job filling in for The Rev. Meanwhile, everyone else in the band seems commonplace.
My Heart To Joy Demo
While not the best, the demo certainly offers some depth into the band that My Heart to Joy at the Same Tone was at the time of its conception. Standout tracks are Dreams to Burn Out Like the Sun and Angry, Very Angry, showcasing a Hardcore Punk-esque side of the band.
