Default Avenged Sevenfold - Seize The Day

So I'm listening to the radio this morning and I catch the tail end of the song that I think sounds kind of like Axl Rose on vocals, but it also sounds a lot like Lips Of An Angel. I manage to dig some lyrics out of the chorus, google what I think I remember, and download the most likely suspect. Turns out it's Seize The Day by Avenged Sevenfold, a rather gothic metal band that's been doing quite well recently. Pretty good song I think. Anybody heard this tune yet? Like it? Hate it? Apathetic about its existence?

Adrian

I bought their album Waking The Fallen a couple of years ago and thought it showed promise. I just found some of the screeching a little annoying but there were some decent songs on it. Imagine my delight therefore when City of Evil was reviewed in Kerrang! and praised to the high heavens. They also said in the review that there was to be no screaming on the album but all proper singing.

Then I actually bought the album, it was simply hideous, I couldn't physically listen to it. The singers voice is totally shot to pieces and sounds horrendous, no wonder there's no high pitched screaming anymore! I can't believe so many magazines love the album. If you want old school metal go and buy DragonForce it pisses all over this from a great height.

His voice is too unbearable for me to like any song on the album, sorry!

I think his voice is great, it's really unique, and City Of Evil is one of my favourite albums from the last couple of years. And it's better IMO than the latest Dragonforce album

I really liked city of evil, but it gets old after a while, I think they tried to hard to be epic.
