Alternative Press ha compilato una lista di 20 album che stanno per compiere 10 anni dalla loro data di pubblicazione. Tra i vari troviamo anche il self-titled degli Avenged Sevenfold.
Il white album, come ricordato nell’articoletto, contiene numerose hit della band e venne rilasciato dopo l’enorme successo di City of Evil. Inoltre, è l’ultimo album completo suonato da Jimmy.
If you asked the boys in A7X how they wrote a follow-up to the masterpiece that was City Of Evil, they’d tell you it was “Almost Easy.” What they wouldn’t have thought was that it would be the last complete record that drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan would both write and perform on. Nonetheless, Avenged Sevenfold’s self-titled album came at a pivotal point in the group’s career, with many of the songs becoming hits within their catalogue. Tunes such as “A Little Piece Of Heaven” and “Dear God” challenged A7X’s typical style, while songs like “Critical Acclaim” and “Scream” only exerted their influence on heavy metal of the ’00s, with that second pair still finding their way into stadiums around the country. —Nikhail Gogia
