About Avenged Sevenfold
Southern-Cali metalcore gods Avenged Sevenfold have been proclaimed leaders of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal and one of the top ten bands of the decade by Ultimate Guitar, but lead man M. Shadows, guitarists Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, and bassist Johnny Christ are doing the same thing they’ve been doing since 1999, making killer music and selling busloads of Avenged Sevenfold tickets.
From their major label release City of Evil in 2005, the band’s sound has evolved from straight-forward metal to a complex mix of dark churning ballads and orchestral maneuvers that find the band exploring deeper, richer textures. The death of original drummer James "The Rev" Sullivan in 2009 from heart disease and drug abuse has surely influenced the band’s later output.
Replacement drummer Mike Portnoy played with the band on Nightmare and went on the road with the Avenged Sevenfold tour machine but was dismissed in 2010 and replaced by Arin Ilejay who will be tackling the band’s 11-minute-long epic "Save Me" in 2011. They dropped Hail to the King in 2013. Three years later, the band dropped The Stage in 2016. They are now opening up for Metallica on Metallica's "WorldWired World Tour."
