Thoughts? Like the music, Shadows sounds a bit strange
I like the song and the album even more- the new drummer does some cool stuff, the songs hold my interest musically more than the previous album, and even though I have never been a fan of avenged sevenfold lyrics (with a few exceptions) I kind of like that he sings about science-y things. My (11 year old) son and I have been listening to the album a lot since they released it and really like.
I must confess I'm not really a metal-head though. My teen years were the late 80s- 90s, so I was a big gunners fan, liked some poison, bon jovi, warrant, etc. I didn't listen to much metal for many years until my son who was learning guitar enjoyed playing an avenged sevenfold song (on the rocksmith game) a few years ago and have been hooked on them since.
Anyway, I just stumbled on this thread and thought I'd join the chorus
