Avenged Sevenfold’s newest album titled “Nightmare” is a little bit of all their previous albums combined.

Starting off with tracks like Nightmare and Welcome To The Family you see the mix of City Of Evil in there. The songs have the fast moments but also the nice riffs along with a good chorus. Also Nightmare has a nice piano opening just like Critical Acclaim did but it’s not as good as Critical Acclaim. You then go into tracks like Danger Line and Buried Alive which are slower songs with some fast parts. Both great songs with a slower feel to them but still carry the riffs and catchy lyrics. God Hates Us all though is the song that most people that are fans of their older heavier stuff will enjoy though. It sounds like something from Waking The Fallen. It has the fast drums and Matt screams for the majority of the song with the “breakdown” type deal at the end of the song. From there on the rest of the cd is really slower songs. Now its not a bad thing as Vicitim is a amazing song and will have you singing it for quite song time and Tonight The World Dies is also great it just really slows down the cd. It seems to be the first half of the album is heavier and fast while the second half slows it down some. Overall though its a great album and may not be heavy again and it does carry alot of radio rock type songs but it is still a great album and something everyone should check out.

Overall: 9.5/10

COB releases their newest cd full of melodic death metal greatness. With a cd containing sharp vocals, fast double bass, and eat shattering solos this cd defines why still today after all these years COB is still one of the great.

Right from the start with “Not My Funeral” they kick it off nonstop. The song is a perfect COB song with Alexi’s sharp vocals and perfect guitar playing.  Really this entire album is just another COB album. Not that it’s a bad thing but if you’ve heard them before this album isn’t a change from their other ones. Also with the length of the album fitting in at just under 40 minutes its not a long cd by any means but from start to finish it keeps going and doesn’t stop. On a side note that I barely ever thing, I do think the album artwork for this cd is quite cool. Back to the music though. This cd still shows why Alexi is looked upon as one of the best vocalist/guitarists in metal. He keeps everything percise, sharp, and just about as perfect as it can get. This entire band is really on top of their game always. Overall it really is a great album and another great COB cd. Any fan of them, melodic death metal, or just metal in general should give the cd a listen. You’ll end up listening to it more than once trust me.

Overall score : 9 out of 10
