As much as I love Avenged, I can't get into the album Sounding the Seventh Trumpet. I've tried.
Wow I can relate so much to this Sounding The Seventh Trumpeth is my least favorite A7X record (but I like some songs on it like Warmness On The Soul and Streets), I guess I would enjoy listening to an instrumental version of it because it has some really cool riffs, but I don't really like the vocals that much and even though I like Waking The Fallen, there are still some songs that I really can't enjoy like Desecrate Through ReveranceI had a hard time getting Into WTF. I just wasn't familiar with Shads type of screaming. I also didn't like ALPOH for a long time.
Also, when I heard ALPOH for the first time, I actually liked it, but it was definitely far from being one of my favorites and I thought it was a really overrated song, but then I started liking it SO MUCH and it's probably on my Top 3 from the album now
I want to add that not only is hard to dislike something popular, but also to like something unpopular. I mean, I'm a diehard Metallica fan and I bet other fans would bash me for saying this, but I LOVE St. Anger. Though I agree they made some poor mixing choices, I love almost every song from this album (except for Purify ), I really love the lyrics and the emotions on it, it's a very deep record to me and I like the meanings behind every song. I can't say the same for Kill 'Em All for example, which is my least favorite Metallica record (I'm not considering Lulu lol), even though it's a fan favorite and I would be cancelled for saying that I don't like their first album that much
