Avenged Sevenfold is a currently popular band admired by many rock fans for their music. Whether you like their music or not, it’s always convenient to have an opinion from a frequent listener so that you have an idea of what to listen to, especially if you’re just starting to look into them or you’re simply curious.
Now if you’re looking for the band’s top-hit radio songs or media driven favorites, then this article isn’t necessarily for you. Simply, if you want to know what songs most people would recommend for you to listen to (if they’re bandwagon fans) those songs would generally be Nightmare, Afterlife, Welcome to the Family, Almost Easy, Bat Country, Beast and the Harlot, Unholy Confessions, Dear God, Second Heartbeat, Seize the Day, and So Far Away, with some exceptions here and there. Although amazing, those songs would be your ‘Top 10′ rated by someone who hasn’t delved into all of Avenged Sevenfold’s unique songs, but pay attention to the top rated list on iTunes or the media.
My opinion as to what their top songs are is not based on anything much more than personal taste. We all have songs that, for whatever reason, we just can’t help but to stop and listen to over and over and over again. Most of this list consists of songs that I’ve listened to alone for extended periods of time on repeat, or that I just never get tired of. Personally, however, I think that every single Avenged Sevenfold song is worth listening to, from Sounding the Seventh Trumpet to Not Ready to Die. The band does change sound from album to album, and even from song to song within an album, so not every song may fit a person’s taste. Ultimately, it’s up to you to choose which songs you like, even if you hate them all.Read more in Musicouching
10. Shattered By Broken Dreams
Most people who listen to Avenged Sevenfold barely even make it to their first album, whose production quality proved to be rather poor, ‘Sounding the Seventh Trumpet’ is a punk rock album with an abundance of screaming vocals that are enough to scare away at least half of their audience. Shattered By Broken Dreams is the longest song on the album, spanning just more than seven minutes and contains personal lyrics and a cleanly-sung chorus that’s fun to sing along to.
9. Save Me
The longest song on Avenged Sevenfold’s last album: ‘Nightmare’. There’s never a dull moment in all of the song’s (almost) eleven minutes. With scorching riffs and solos throughout the song and catchy lyrics to sing to it’s hard to stay away from this song.
