Avenged Sevenfold – Self-titled album


Avenged Sevenfold’s mainstream success got them an invitation to 2006’s Ozzfest tour on the main stage, alongside other well known hard rock and heavy metal acts DragonForce, Lacuna Coil, Hatebreed, Disturbed and System of a Down. After being on tour for sixteen months in promotion of City of Evil, Avenged Sevenfold announced that they were cancelling their Fall 2006 tour in favor of recording new music. M. Shadows stated that their fourth studio album—which the Avenged Sevenfold self-titled and self-produced—would not be a “City of Evil Part 2” or “Waking the Fallen Part 2,” but would incorporate a new, grittier sound.

To tide the fans over in between albums, Avenged Sevenfold released their first DVD titled All Excess on July 17, 2007. All Excess, which debuted as the #1 DVD in the USA, included live performances and backstage footage that spanned the Avenged Sevenfold eight year career. Two tribute albums, Strung Out on Avenged Sevenfold: Bat Wings and Broken Strings and Strung Out on Avenged Sevenfold: The String Tribute were also released in October 2007.

Avenged Sevenfold, the band’s fourth album, was released on October 30, 2007, debuting at #4 on the Billboard 200 with over 90,000 copies sold. Two singles, “Critical Acclaim” and “Almost Easy” were released prior to the album’s debut. In December 2007, an animated video was made for “A Little Piece of Heaven.” Due to the song’s controversial subject matter, however, Warner Brothers only released it to registered MVI users over the internet. The third single, “Afterlife” and its video was released in January 2008. Avenged Sevenfold fourth single, “Dear God”, was released on September 30, 2008. Although critical reception was generally mixed the self-titled album went onto sell over 500,000 copies and was awarded “Album of the Year” at the Kerrang! Awards
