Loudwire has compiled their list of the 50 Most Important Bands in the 21st Century and Avenged Sevenfold are included.
Avenged Sevenfold are one of the 21st century’s biggest success stories. The band’s early sound was rooted in metalcore, which was on the verge of exploding when the Orange County outfit arrived on the scene. They’d eventually shed their more extreme roots and find their sound that is now synonymous with the group as M. Shadows became more confident in his clean singing. A7X take the twin melodies of traditional heavy metal, inject some modern attitude and have enjoyed a still-rising career as one of the new millennium’s biggest metal bands.
