I always thought that Avenged Sevenfold was one of those modern metal core bands that American radio loves so much. Bands which of all sounds the same, bands which has one guy who screams his guts out in the verses and has one melodic singer that can sing the cheesy choruses. So I decided there wasn’t any need for me to check them out as metal core really isn’t my case of beer. And from what I have heard about them, I wasn’t that far away with that assumption. But then I heard their first single from the album, the title track and went ”Whooa!!!”. This wasn’t metalcore at all, this is just plain Heavy Metal, not a far cry from what Metallica does. In fact, their sound is sometimes so close to what Metallica does these days, it almost feels like plagiarism.
