Sweet, I finally got something before it was pulled off.

Lay down your soul to the gods Rock 'n' Roll!

Just got done listening to Waking the Fallen: Resurrected, and it was fantastic.

The original album holds up very well as an example of a fusion between metalcore and heavy metal. The guitar playing is good, Shadows' clean vocals aren't as nasal as they would be on later releases (particularly City of Evil), and the Rev's drumming is great as always. The bonus CD is also great, with some interesting demos and live rarities. The only track I didn't like was the demo (here called the "alternate") version of Second Heartbeat. A live version of Clairvoyant Disease would have also been great, but aside from that, the bonus disc is very well put together. A must-listen, if not buy, for fans of Avenged Sevenfold's earlier (and better IMO) work.

Actually, he'd be seven counting Tracii Guns.

And, I dunno about VR, but I would've loved to have seen Steven appear on Slash's solo album

He actually was supposed to appear on the album, but for some reason, the song he and Slash worked on didn't make the final cut.

Here's some great news for fans: … rsary-dvd/

Who gives a shit? Axl  doesn't have a 'rebel image' anymore. He was never punk or anti-corporate or whatever you want to call it. As for Slash, he reminds me of Snoop Dogg: even though there is not a lot of quality control in regards as to what they slap their name on, they're both recognized as skilled musicians within their genres and they've performed on what are recognized as some of the greatest albums of all time.

The guitarists from Avenged Sevenfold are badass. Gates is a hell of a player.

Yeah, but compared to John Petrucci?

Golden God winner,

That doesn't mean shit. The guy from Five Finger Death Punch won Best Bassist over Fieldy and Geezer fucking Butler. John Petrucci lost to the guys from Avenged Sevenfold in Best Guitarist. The Golden Gods are in many ways the hard rock version of the Grammys: they ignore a vibrant, incredibly creative underground of bands and musicians and they're a popularity contest. It's cool that Axl won a lifetime achievement award, but that doesn't mean a thing in terms of what he can do now.
