Friday, March 27, 2015 | 0 comments

Waking the Fallen is the second studio album by American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold, released on August 26, 2003, by Hopeless Records.
The album was released as 2x12"LP, Repress, 33 ⅓ RPM, Grey Marble on 2008 in US.[1] The album was certified gold on July 15, 2009, even though it only sold 3,000 copies on its first week of release. As of August 2014, it has sold over 693,000 copies in the United States.[2] The song "Eternal Rest" appears on Kerrang's "666 Songs You Must Own".
More clean vocals are featured on the album than their debut album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet. The only song on the record that does not contain screaming, however, is "I Won't See You Tonight (Part 1)" while 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 songs from this album are not usually performed live, although, "Unholy Confessions," "Chapter Four," "Eternal Rest," and "Second Heartbeat" have always been a staple to their set since the release of Waking the Fallen. The song "Eternal Rest" was featured on the Soundtrack to the 

Musical style[edit]

The record continues the metalcore sound the band had used on their previous album, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, but features noticeably more clean vocals. Being the first release by the band to feature lead guitarist Synyster Gates, the record also features some guitar solos.[3][4] The record is notable among fans due to M. Shadows' slightly higher pitch in his voice and high notes he sings on songs like "I Won't See You Tonight" (both parts). The album also leans more towards heavy metalrather than punk rock.[5]

Waking the Fallen was highly acclaimed. It received a positive profile in Billboard, with the magazine comparing Avenged Sevenfold to bands like NOFXIron Maiden, andMetallica.[7] In other profiles, the album also received comparisons to the Misfits and further comparisons to Iron Maiden.[8] "Chapter Four" was featured in video games such as NASCAR Thunder 2004Madden NFL 04, and NHL 04, which helped the band get recognized and sign a contract with Warner Bros. Records. Overall reviews onUltimate Guitar were very positive and it holds the highest overall rating of any Avenged Sevenfold studio album on Ultimate Guitar.


A live performance video was shot at Warped Tour 2003 for the first single from Waking the Fallen, "Second Heartbeat". A video was made for the second single "Unholy Confessions" on March 6, 2004, using live footage set to the studio track. It featured the fans before and during an Avenged Sevenfold concert. According to vocalist M. Shadows, it was requested by their new label, Warner Bros. Records, in order to publicize the band before their 2005 album City of Evil.
This video was the second attempt at a video for the track. The previous attempt was a concept video created the previous fall (2003). The band was not happy with the final product, however, and opted to re-shoot the video, this time as a live performance. The new video went into rotation on MTV2's Headbangers Ball.[9]
There is a live video released for their song Chapter Four, which is considered the fourth single from the album.


In March 2014, vocalist M. Shadows revealed in an interview with Loudwire that the band had plans in the works to put something out for the overdue 10th anniversary of Waking the Fallen:[10]
We’re going to put something together for the 10 year anniversary of ‘Waking the Fallen,’ which is about 11 or 12 years now. We’ve been trying to think of something we could put together and we found some old demos that we did with Teppei [Teranishi] from Thrice before we even did that record.... We also found some old footage with [late drummer] Jimmy [Sullivan] playing some old shows at The Henry Fonda Theater in L.A., and the Ventura Theater. We’ll put together a cool DVD and some demo tracks and re-release ‘Waking the Fallen’ for newer fans of the band that haven’t gotten that or don’t know about the history of the band.
