Decent song. Has a cool hard rock vibe, which I like. Pretty accessible though, but I'm going to assume this will be one of the more accessible on the album due to it being their single. The previews on their website have some intriguing stuff, that's a little different from this.

It's nothing great, but it's listenable at least, and the singer's voice which I normally hate actually sounds okay on this song... It'll take better than that to convert me into a fan, but it's not half bad for a band I usually find hard on the ears. And not in a good way! xD

That actually makes me want to check it out, even though I think AS (I refuse to call them A7X. even though I just did) are gash.

Ya I don't think it's enough like Taranchula to really make it any better than you might expect.

Yep... I suspect if most of their haters were played this song without being told who it was, they'd like it, or at least they wouldn't hate it. It's not a great song, but it's also far from terrible. This band have put out far worse material in their time, that's for sure. The main thing that makes it palatable for me is the vocals. I've always disliked the singer's vocals, but he sounds very different on this song, and that makes it tolerable....

I'm rather surprised at the relative show of love for this song on this website, 'cause that was a thoroughly boring song.

I don't know the name of the new drummer, but I'll say he's nothing like Portnoy. That's the only reason I gave Nightmare a chance was because of Portnoy, now he's gone and I have no interest in this band, yet again...

I think "show of love" is a bit overexaggerated, don't you? :\ I think apart from maybe the first poster, nobody said they really liked the song, just that it was tolerable, and not half bad. Although I guess around here, any reaction to material by this band other than a total slaughtering is seen as "loving it".

I think part of the whole general "Meh, it's not bad" is because it's different. It's definitely tolerable unlike the rest of their stuff (to me). I was surprised and intrigued by the sound though, glad to hear none of the vocalists whiney "AYEYIEEEYIEEE" Kinda sounding. I'd actually say it's decent hard rock.

Precisely! The song doesn't sound like Avenged Sevenfold's regular material (at least none of the material by them I've actually heard). The things that have put me off everything else I've heard by them, are not present on this song, which is why I can happily listen to it without feeling a strong urge to stop the song before it's even half finished. It's not a great song, far from it. But it's also far from being terrible. Like you said, it's decent hard rock. I certainly wouldn't buy it, but it's tolerable.

Awesome songs, I can feel some what 90s Metallica influence music and vocal, though mostly still more of heavy metal and hard rock, even some power metal and iron maiden. Not excellent but still enjoyable and unique the band this time material.

I thought it was decent, nothing particularly good. I only liked the hard rock vibe they were going for.

I'm still a fan, though it's probably just nostalgia i don't want to get rid of. Nightmare was thoroughly boring, to me, and I doubt they'll ever get more creative than CoE, so I approach all their new material with caution.

I love A7X, but I'm not that impressed. Neither this nor their silly CoD songs are that great. I'm concerned they've kind of lost it without The Rev, TBH. I dunno. I'm not expecting them to reach the epic highs of Waking the Fallen or City of Evil again, but eh. Syn's guitar work is the glowing highlight, as always, though.

Incredibly generic and boring....Although, not surprised, since Waking and City of Evil this band has done nothing interesting.

Just.. No. This is by far the worst a7x song I've ever heard. I kinda like their stuff but this is just horrible in comparison. Somehow it all sounds quite boring and the drums suck even the last drop of goodness out of it.

I really liked the intro, for a few seconds there I almost thought they finally put out something listenable...then it fizzled into this flat attempt at some pseudo-anthem. Can't say I'm surprised.

...I gotta admit though, I'm quite fond of that album artwork.

Thus the use of "relative". I actually rather like some of their songs, and I love his voice on songs like "Bat Country".

Ah, fair enough so. I do find it interesting that most of the semi-positive comments are coming from people who don't normally like Avenged Sevenfold, and most of the more negative comments are from people who are fans of the band. Strange...

Apparently the guy can fairly smash the kit, but apparently they were going for slower, more groove orientated riffs, so they asked him to simplify the drumming a bit.

This actually isn't all that terrible.
The vocals sound better than normal.
Still not that good though.

Nope. It's just a "Wasted Years"-ish lick repeated to infinity and beyond.

I actually really like this. I honestly reckon that, had the vocals been deeper, this could have been an amazing song.

(That's not a complaint against M Shadows: I just think a deeper and more forceful voice would have made this song much better.)
