These guys are amazing like the guy above I first heard Unholy Confessions on my friends iPod and knew I had to get the album. The bands' main influence being the kings of classic rock for instance GnR the way to describe this album is like '80s rock with a modern edge. Zacky and Synyster pull out some of the greatest guitar riffs ever, while the Rev and Jonny Christ supply amazing bass and drum lines.

Although the majority of the lyrics were screamed M. Shadows is still able to bring his lyrics to a high melodic level for when it counts espescially in songs like "Remenissions" and "Chapter Four" and the epic "I Won't See You Tonight." The lyrics are deep and really quite cool to think about and contemplate the song quite well, although as M. says they compliment the music much better on "City Of Evil."
Overall Impression — 10
This album deffinatley holds its own and is comparitive to '80s rock but with a dark edge. My favourite songs on the album are Unholy Confessions and I Won't See You Tonight although all of the songs on this album come into this catagory. If lost I would deffinatley fork out the cash and get it again!
