Whew, this is my first blog here. Doing it, 'cause I'm bored, I don't expect anyone to read it anyways.
A few days ago, I got to listen to the new Avenged Sevenfold record and was blown away. "Nightmare" brought tears to my eyes, tears of happiness, pride and sorrow. Each song of this album is an awesome tribute to Jimmy. He would be so proud of guys, just like I am right now. They've made it through, with all the pain inside they kept moving on and have shown, that they're still able to write beautiful music. "Nightmare" will also debut at #1 on the Billboard chart this week in the US. I'm so happy for A7X, they deserved it! "Nightmare" is full of epic lyrics, mind-blowing guitar riffs and breathtaking vocals. Jimmy's voice in "Fiction" left me speechless. Everytime I listen to this album, in each song I can find something new, something absolutely amazing that makes my heart beat faster. Listening to this album for the first time was a bittersweet experience: hearing all this pain and all these tears flowing from each note of the songs... but still I love this record and all the emotions that it brings to me and all fans. I would love to thank Matt, Brian, Zacky and Johnny for sharing all their feelings, all their thoughts on Jimmy's passing, and Mike for helping them out. I realise how hard it must have been to them to move on with the band. I hope that they will never lose their strenght, that they will never give up and with all the support from their families, friends and fans they will keep on writing music. For Jimmy, foREVer.
i think it's good to let out the flowing emotions you had about Rev and A7X as a whole through this album, it really shows that you respect the band for what they do and that you can move on from The Rev's tragic passing, you thanked him for what he gave us and made the best out of it, great job.
Well said. I quite agree, it was an amazing album. I just cant listen to it without crying myself. Then not to mention the things they said about Jimmy in the booklet for the CD. This album is truly touching.
