One thing that sucks about the music scene lately is not only the shitty new bands that are being praised for mediocrity, but it's actually the fact that people are shitting on anything that more established bands are doing lately. There is an amazing resurgence of bands that are hitting the 10 or more year mark right now and they are hitting the stride of a new sound or maybe a more simple structure for their albums and nobody wants to give them a chance. Avenged has proven themselves musically, technically, performance-wise and then some. They are more than allowed to make a more blues driven, bare bones hard rock album. This song is exactly how they described the album and I think it kicks ass. I want a change from the over the top aspects of the last 2 a7x albums.
