Avenged Sevenfold Post New Song Snippet

Hear another new material teaser from the band's upcoming album.

Ultimate Guitar

Avenged Sevenfold posted another video teaser from their upcoming studio release, Loudwire reports. The short snippet really packs a punch, featuring one of the new songs from their recording sessions with producer Mike Elizondo.

The band has been very mysterious about the release date and fine details of their new disc, estimated to be out at some point in the summer or early fall. They've also kept things top secret regarding the dissemination of all the clues leading to video teasers and first listens to their new material. Their official website has been taken over by an old school radio featuring a dial that can be turned to hear hidden tracks and treasures.

The band has recently posted the video featuring footage from the sessions with producer Mike Elizondo and new music snippet.

The new release will mark the band's sixth studio album and the first written entirely without James "The Rev" Sullivan. Sullivan, their former drummer and major songwriting contributor, tragically passed away in December in 2009. Sullivan was a part of the writing process for the band's latest record "Nightmare" before his passing, although he did not play drums on the record.

While fans wait for more information on the new album, Avenged Sevenfold will be making a few live appearances this summer including stops at Rock USA festival, Heavy MTL and the Aftershock festival.

    no mater how much hate these guys get,they do have some great songs and talent.
    Tons of talent its the posing that puts me off.
    What exactly are they posing as? Playing instruments? Being fans of metal? Making music? That's such a misguided insult. Calling someone a "poser" is so 7th grade.
    Its hardly an insult.Just my observation.Watch the afterlife video and tell me that wasnt full of smugness and just general posing.
    Something tells me that's just jealousy of the fact that they're famous and you're not. Source: I've been guilty of this in the past, before my mental age caught up with my actual age.
    You know what i give up.Im sorry i cant have a opinion that differs from yours.Ax7 rules.
    You can have your opinion that is different from others just as much as Tom, Jmar, and DofaGod can have an opinion different from yours.
    Right so if you dont like a band or a celebrity you automatically have to become jealous.I had no idea lifes priority was to become famous.
    I'm with you actually. There's a very "high school uber cool hair gel and crotch pose" thing going on in the limited stuff that I have seen that just turns me off.
    And the rest of today society is any different? just look around.
    As excited as I am, that radio thing on their website frustrated the hell out of me. Can't wait for this to drop after the great job they did on Nightmare!
    Nightmare was utter shit!
    I wouldn't say utter shit but I think its safe to say their albums have been getting progressively worse(imo since waking the fallen)
    agreed. it was garbage. i wanted to like it, but no matter how much i listened to it, it always bored the life out of me. considering eveything that was going on with the band at that time, it seemed to lack passion and focus.
    I really didn't like Nightmare at first, but the more I heard it, the more I think it's actually their best album yet... not that it's really that great, but none of their other albums are, either.
    why does this band get so much hate? They're a great hard rock/alternative metal band! Their music is very diverse, they have plenty of great metal songs, M. Shadows has a great metal voice, and they have never done anything wrong really. I know some people hate them for leaving their metalcore roots, but there are more than enough metalcore bands out at the moment, so quit your bitching.

    Exactly! For what they offer now, they are a fantastic band, one of my favourites! I think people do need to stop being so close minded with regards to genres. There'll always be someone who doesn't like it, but everyone needs to understand that the band progressed. They've become a more mature band and their sound has matched that. I for one am highly excited for the new album!

    and they didn't stand out as much when they did metalcore, he's your average screaming vocalist but a singing voice like shadows' needs to be utilized.
    I personally find them to be awful. The vocals are terrible and the songs are just meh. A band for teenagers. Very overrated.
    Every band was for tenagers once in their lifetime The Who,The Stones,The Beatles,Led Zeppelin,Deep Purple,The Grateful Dead,Judas Priest,Iron Maiden,Metallica, Nirvana, Soundgarden, the list goes on
    Guns N' Chains
    Good point. On a side note, I ask why is it that the assumption of rock and metal music is only for teenagers and young people? I understand where this comes from, but its unjust. And I understand people grow up with these bands. But, I CAN NOT stand when someone says, "you'll grow out of that stuff" or "someday you'll appreciate real music with real meaning". First off, what does that even mean? Second, I do appreciate other music and respect all musicians regardless of genre, but this assumption is just arrogant, imo. Not to stereotype, but I guess the old dudes with long grey hair at your local metal concern never "grew up" but cause they still enjoy rock and metal music. And I guess all the rock and metal musicians still writing and playing rock/metal music are doing it strictly for $. In that case they all should just change genres and write and play country music. /rant.
    What's wrong with a band for teenagers? Who doesn't just love releasing that inner-teenage angst every once in awhile?

    This is quite different! Really looking forward to hearing what they've got to offer, especially after the success of Nightmare.
    I don't think it deserved to be that succesful as it wasn't as good as City of Evil, or their self-titled one for that matter
    I wish they'd just post a song already, so far it sounds like its gonna blow goats
    matteo cubano
    though I want a song too, this shit sounds pretty cool so far, im impressed with how it sounds, other than that last one that sounded like "little peace of heaven", it sounds like a new direction for them. and it sounds good. that is based off about 1 minute of music between 3 combined songs
    matteo cubano
    all of that said, hearing the intro I can't help but picture Will Ferrel standing in the doorway staring at a drumset
    Avenged doing Power Metal? Fuck Yes!
    Guns N' Chains
    I thought the same thing. Gave me a Rhapsody of Fire vibe. Sounded pretty cool.
    Face R1pper
    What are you people talking about? This sounds nothing like power metal. Just because they use a dramatic choir intro doesn't automatically make it a power metal song.
    Guns N' Chains
    True. Let me rephrase, the INTRO had a Power Metal vibe. NOT the entire snippet. Listen to Rhapsody of Fire, many of their songs start out in a similar fashion.
    I just wanna know what they're avenging seven times over. 'Cos when something really gets on my nerves, I only avenge them twice
    They're probably raging over somebody making a remark along the lines of "I don't really think your band is that great" or something to that extent. You know, the way all of their fanboys always do.
    It's a reference to the Bible, like a lot of their stuff(although I don't think any of them are Christians)
