Tag Archive: M. Shadows


Hi! I’ve been a bad bad blogger, but now I will try to be better. So, I chose to write about  God Hates Us by Avenged Sevenfold off the album Nightmare (2010). Here are the lyrics. Enjoy!

I simply love the intro. The way it builds up from just the strumming of the guitars to this high-powered rock song is awesome. There is so much energy in the drums, you get amped-up whether you want to or not. The Rev was so brilliant. I definitely hope they play this song live, because the atmosphere would be epic. The lyrics are deadly heavy, and in the way they are preformed by M. Shadows, he sounds like the devil.

 

“You wanna hear my side?
You need to drown to know
When all the times it hurt me to fuck you
I built a wall with your blood to show”
(God Hates Us – Avenged Sevenfold)

Hey ya’ll! So, to start off this thing, I’ve chosen to write about Almost Easy by Avenged Sevenfold. The song is off the album Avenged Sevenfold, published in 2007. Here are the lyrics, and below is the music video.

The guitar riffs and the solo in this song is just another proof why I love Avenged Sevenfold so much.  I’m not insane when I say this song will take the roof off of the place if they play this live. M. Shadows’ vocals are impeccable, and the lyrics are insanely good. I just love the little laugh Shadows has after he sings “I’m not insane, I’m not insane” after the bridge, it’s like he’s contradicting himself, and it fits so perfectly. This song is one of the classics by A7X in my opinion. You can’t go wrong with it, and you can hear all the characteristics of their music in here. I just love it.

 

“I feel insane every single time I’m asked to compromise
Cause I’m afraid I’m stuck in my ways, and that’s the way it stays
So how long did I expect love to out weigh ignorance?
By that look on your face I may have forced the scale to tip”
(Almost Easy – Avenged Sevenfold)

 

Well, hello there! This is ridiculous, I haven’t blogged in almost a month, I really need to get my ass in gear. So, a little ironically intended, I’m doing a post on Not Ready To Die by Avenged Sevenfold, since the doomsday prophesy failed. The song was published as a single in 2011 for the video game Call Of Duty: Black Ops. This is the first recorded release by Avenged Sevenfold with Arin Ilejay as drummer for the band. Here are the lyrics. Enjoy!

The whole song starts off with an organ piece (the instrument, not a body part – haha), and in the middle of it guitars sneak their way into the intro, and playing a few riffs before the singing starts. Almost through the entire song we hear the chugging of heavy guitars and some good riffs, and a steady drum beat in the verses. The guitar solo is also noticeable, as always when it comes to Avenged Sevenfold. M. Shadows’ vocals are impeccable, and makes the song like a complete A7X song.  The little detail with the sweet, but disturbing little piano melody in the bridge was a nice touch. Don’t really like that the song has a fade ending, but that’s not very important. I like the lyrics too, they have a lot of energy and are all about power and survival, but more controlling than in other songs by Avenged Sevenfold.

 

“Say goodbye to your life
Left to rot in your darkest hour
Prayers won’t help you now as long as your mine”
(Not Ready To Die – Avenged Sevenfold)

 

Hey! Since my 100th post is coming up, I decided to do something special for post nr. 99, 100 and 101. At least it will be special to me, don’t actually know if you all will understand what’s special about those posts, but some will. Now, this time I’m doing a post on Scream by Avenged Sevenfold. The song was published on their self titled album (Avenged Sevenfold) in 2007. Here are the lyrics, and the song is below:

 

I just love the intro, how they used actual screaming, it gives me the creeps. Of course I love the guitar riffs, they’re awesome as usual. The lyrics are cool too. I think the voice of M. Shadows is pretty awesome.

 

“Scream till there’s silence
Scream while there’s life left, vanishing”
(Scream – Avenged Sevenfold)

 

 

Sorry for the hold-up. I though it would be okay, since I’ve got tonnes of homework, and so little time.
Today’s song is another by Avenged Sevenfold. It’s called Gunslinger, and this song was published on their self titled album (Avenged Sevenfold) in 2007. Here are the lyrics. This is one song I’ve had on my mind for almost a month now, so it’s good to get this one out to you too.
Listen and Enjoy!

The riffs in the beginning are country-like, and that seems strange for Avenged Sevenfold, and strange that I like it, but I think it’s genius. And the second time around when M. Shadows sings “I’m coming home to you” , before the rough guitars kick in, you really hear it in his voice that it’s about to get rougher. Then I get that stupid smile I was writing about again, because A7X riffs are just awesome. I adore the guitar solo (obviously).  The lyrics are clearly (as I see it!) about someone who has been in the army, and is finally coming home to his love. That’s strong.


(I thought this picture suited well for this post. So sad, it broke my heart a little)
This song has grown to become one of my favorite songs by Avenged Sevenfold.

 

“I reach towards the sky, I’ve said my goodbyes
My heart’s always with you now
I won’t question why so many have died
My prayers have made it through, yeah”
(Gunslinger – Avenged Sevenfold)
