Ultimate Guitar Reviews "Nightmare" And Gives It A 9. - Avenged Sevenfold

Ultimate Guitar Reviews "Nightmare" And Gives It A 9.

Ultimate Guitar reviewed “Nightmare” and they give it a 9 out of 10. You can read the entire review here.

Impression: The Tim Burton-style artwork. The darkly romantic imagery. The element of danger. The squalling guitars. The Iron Maiden influence. The groundswell of emotion from losing their drummer while writing the album. Those are all the batteries that power up Nightmare. Much of the album reminds me of the best parts of Waking the Fallen, which in my opinion, was all great parts! It’s heavy. It’s melodic. It mixes the two without any sort of detraction from the other. It’s seamless. It’s like a modern version of Metallica and Guns N’ Roses. And those are never bad things. But lest we forget: it’s still Avenged Sevenfold doing what they’ve always done and sticking to their own musical vision. // 9
