Earlier this morning, I just listened to the new Avenged Sevenfold album, “The Stage”. This album is surprisingly very different than their earlier material. You know how most of their music are mostly their typical nu-metal stuff that young kids would enjoy? Well, this album is very different, totally. This album is a concept album. More like a rock opera kind of like the Who’s “Tommy” a little bit. Avenged Sevenfold are mostly known to writing short songs that would be good for radio but with this album; however, the songs on it are maturing. The songs on this album are longer… probably around 7 to 10 minutes long.
I enjoyed every track on the album. I don’t know why a lot of people hate this band ’cause if you actually give them a chance and really listen to them, you would find that they are really good. I’ve been listening to Avenged Sevenfold for a long while and I think “The Stage” is probably their best album in the band’s career. I think M. Shadows is a great rock singer. I also think Zacky Vengeance and Synyster Gates are excellent guitar players as well. This band deserves more respect for sure.
