About this album

Waking the Fallen is the second studio album by American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold, released on August 26, 2003, by Hopeless Records. More clean vocals are featured on the album than their debut album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet. It is also the first album to feature Johnny Christ on bass, thus completing the band’s primary lineup (until The Rev’s death in 2009).

The album was released as 2x12”, LP, Repress, 33 ⅓ RPM, Grey Marble on 2008 in US. The album was certified gold on July 15, 2009.
The only song on the record that does not contain screaming is “I Won’t See You Tonight (Part 1)”. It’s noteworthy that the bands first album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet had three songs that were all clean vocals, “To End the Rapture”, “Streets” and “Warmness on the Soul”.
As with Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, most of the song’s from this album are not usually performed live, although, “Unholy Confessions” has always been a staple to their set since the release of Waking the Fallen. Also, “Second Heartbeat” & “I Won’t See You Tonight Pt.1” are still performed commonly. The song “Eternal Rest” was commonly performed prior to 2007.
The record continues the metalcore sound the band had used on their previous album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, but features noticeably more clean vocals.

    This, by far, is the perfect A7X album. I've loved each album since, but none compare to this. Brutality and Melodies blend so well.

    A7x in their purest form...Brutal riffs, soaring melodies...while I personally enjoy Nightmare more, I can't deny this is their best album.
