The Unsung Hero
Proclaiming My Mind For Him

The Best of Avenged Sevenfold

I’ve been introduced to a lot of different styles of Rock from a game called Guitar Hero. It’s why I love the game so much. It has such a wide variety of Rock music. Avenged Sevenfold isn’t a band I really follow or care for. I just like the songs and the lyrics. I’m no fanboy of bands. I don’t follow on the bands latest endeavors or concerts. I just listen to the music because it’s just that good. This is one of those bands where I like their material, but know virtually nothing about the band itself.

The songs title was enough to catch my attention. Heck, the only reason I looked at the album was because of the cover art. This song is short, but captures my thoughts on the event. As something epic, but morbid as well.

To End the Rapture

I used to have a friend who had some troubles with this girl he used to like. In all honesty, I found it hilarious, but I humored him by not laughing at his situation whenever he was present. I came across this song around that time and quickly related it to him and his object of affection. Once I got past the funny note of familiarity, I found the lyrics to be rather nicely put. I usually don’t listen to romance type songs, but this one stands out.

Warmness on the Soul

I remember a time where I used to follow the politics like nobody’s business. That was when I planned on becoming a lawyer, but soon after tossing that idea down to the curb. Needless to say, I started to no longer follow politics after that. But I’m still rather knowledgable despite how rusty I am with the subject of politics. The songs lyrics really shed light on government as a whole. I’m not necessarily happy with it, but I don’t bother doing much about it for obvious reasons. It’s messed up and I’ll accept that. It is what it is. It can’t be changed anytime soon. Popularity and deciet rules it.
As a sidenote, I’ve stopped following the politics for over a year. I’ve been much happier ever since.

Critical Acclaim

One thing that I favour in this song is the drums and guitar. I have a different take on the lyrics, but whatever. It’s really one of those songs that I don’t have any personal ties to other than this song being well made overall.

Almost Easy

I remember playing this song on the Guitar Hero 2 demo at the mall. I absolutely playing the song even though it kept me from going hard to expert level for a while. Even when I shifted, I still couldn’t pass the song. I decide to buy the song. The drums were awesome, the guitar was epic. I listen to the lyrics and fell in love with it instaneously. It dealt with Revelations. But I didn’t know where in the book. Time passes. On my 16th birthday, I decide to listen to my iPod while going through the book of epicness known as Revelations. I reach chapter 17 and midway through the chapter this song begins to play. The lyrics sounded familiar and I realized where the lyrics came from . . . from Chapters 17, 18 of the book of Revelations . . . I was psyched. I couldn’t believe it. The lyrics come from those two chapters and actually keep a relation to what it preaches. After that day, this song became my absolute favourite song regarding scripture. In other words, this is my absolute favourite christian related song. It beats all of the christian songs I found lacking in variety, diversity. I can rock out to this song because it reminds me of one of the events that will mark the demise of the sinister and the arrival of Kingdom Come.
