iTunes have added Avenged Sevenfold into their iTunes Essential Catalog. You can check it out here.
More than just another metalcore band, Avenged Sevenfold has switched its sound up so much – not just from album to album, but also from song to song – that it’s nearly impossible to keep up with all the time changes, genre shifts, and all-out sucker punches. We’re gonna try, though, from the hellcat howls and thick, fire-breathing riffs of such early fan favorites as “Darkness Surrounding,” “Turn The Other Way,” and “Unholy Confessions” to the note-nailing Guns N’ Roses nods of “Seize The Day” (singer M Shadows had the same vocal coach as Axl Rose) and the heated hooks of “Bat Country.” As for our Next Steps, it includes everything from a two-part epic to a Black Sabbath cover even Ozzy would approve of.
Thanks Daniel for sending this in!
