NIGHTMARE AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE JULY 27TH
Southern California’s Avenged Sevenfold have just unveiled the artwork for their upcoming album, Nightmare, which will be in-stores on July 27th. The band will also be releasing a special limited edition of their upcoming album on Warner Bros. Records. Nightmare was produced by Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem) and mixed by noted engineer Andy Wallace. Please see below for full track-listing.
Book of Nightmares includes the full Nightmare album on CD, plus an expanded booklet featuring lyric sheets from the band and exclusive artwork — all packaged in a bound book with a silver-plated “Nightmare” crest. The package also includes a limited 24” x 36” lithograph entitled “Death Bat Anatomy” featuring original artwork on textured paper embossed, as well as an instant digital download of Avenged Sevenfold’s current single “Nightmare.” Book of Nightmares is only for sale from the band’s official website, http://www.avengedsevenfold.com, where it is currently available for pre-order for $49.99.
The album’s first single and title track has enjoyed airplay at Active Rock, Mainstream, and Modern Rock radio stations across the country and was the No. 1 Rock Song on iTunes in the U.S. and the U.K. in its debut week. A lyric video of “Nightmare” that premiered via a Youtube on the band’s website received more than 275,000 plays in 24 hours and has since racked up nearly 1.7 million views.
In August, Avenged Sevenfold will set out co-headlining the first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival with Disturbed. Also on the bill are Stone Sour, Halestorm, and Hell Yeah. The UPROAR tour, which will hit amphitheatres and arenas, marks the band’s first tour since the passing of beloved friend and drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan. Mike Portnoy from Dream Theatre plays drums on Nightmare and will also tour with the band for UPROAR. Please visit http://www.rockstaruproar.com for details.
The track-listing for Nightmare is as follows:
2. Welcome To The Family
3. Danger Line
4. Buried Alive
5. Natural Born Killer
6. So Far Away
7. God Hates Us
9. Tonight The World Dies

The package will be relased on September 8th.

I must admit that I have not heard of the band, Bomb Child until only recently. Their debut, Nothing Lasts Forever was recently recommended to me, so I decided to check them out.
Man oh mercy, am I ever glad I did. Nothing Lasts Forever blasts out of your speakers at cannonball speed, and offers listeners a ferocious feast of killer hard rock.
Bomb Child has a style that reminds me of Buckcherry, but mixed with a more modern overtone that might better resemble A7X. Nonetheless, this disc rocks out and rocks hard. It is chock full of angry tunes about life, love and broken relationships.
Nothing Lasts Forever isn’t a terribly long listening experience. The ten songs on this disc clock in just shy of 34 minutes. There really isn’t a band song in the bunch.
My only disappointment is that I didn’t hear about these guys, when they were out promoting this album. I don’t think Bomb Child is together any longer, and it is a real shame, as they were a very talented three piece.
You can find copies of Bomb Child’s CD, Nothing Lasts Forever on Amazon.com for next to nothing. It is worth the small price of admission. Go get it at this link!
You can also hear a couple of the songs on the band’s myspace page.

Black Tide have just completed a tour of North America and Europe opening for Avenged Sevenfold and will continue life on the road as they approach the release of their debut album, Light From Above. The band can be seen with All That Remains and Chimaira in February and March and on the Mayhem Tour with Slipknot and Disturbed this summer.
The heavily anticipated release from the hard rocking band will hit stores March 18th, 2008.
As Black Tide gear up for more touring and their new album, you can gear up too. The band and Hard Rock Hideout are giving you the chance to win a Dean MLX guitar, a Schecter Stiletto Studio-4 bass, a Pearl Joey Jordison model steel snare and a Coffin Case bass case.
The full length album, Light From Above, hits stores March 2008.
Check out the brand new video, A Little Piece of Heaven by Avenged Sevenfold.
Today’s Video Showdown puts the Metal band Overkill against Avenged Sevenfold.
It seems that there is some logo infringement between the bands Overkill, and Avenged Sevenfold. Overkill has been using the flying bat skull logo since their 1988 release, Under the Influence.
Meanwhile, the flying bat skull started showing up on Avenged Sevenfold covers in 2003, with the A7X’s release, Waking the Fallen.
Overkill’s Hello From the Gutter
Avenged Sevenfold’s Bat Country
