Walk - Single Tracklist:
It's okay, as long as you don't look at the fact that this is Pantera's song. Avenged Sevenfold can't exactly pull of their sound. That's not always the point of a cover, but this was a risky move. Pantera is huge. I'll still bump this, though.
People obviously don't understand what it means to pay tribute to a band! This is a great cover! By no means are they trying to show up Pantera, but come on, they obviously love this song enough to play it and have fun with it. People need to chill out and find something better to do than hate. Avenged for life! Great cover!
This is to the people who gave avenged sevenfold one star for doing this remake pantera may have been a better band but they are not around anymore dimebag is dead the other members are doing other things besides there not trying to copy them there trying to keep that bands music alive I don't think pantera would have said it sounded bad plus one of panteras members was a druggie I like there music but I would not like a band that was into drugs
Ok for all of you who are leaving low comments saying that Avenged will never be as good as pantera or this should not have been covered. When you cover a song you do it out of respect, not to make it better. Im sure A7x are huge pantera fans and dont think that they intended on making a classic better...enjoy a new take on a good song and dont hate just because its not pantera...
People need to understand that it's a cover song from a band that inspired A7X and to talk down because of the differences is silly, if it were too similar it would be pointless, they added just enough of their talent to the song to make it unique, i'd agree that the original is better, but for a cover, this is well done by a group that has talent I hope to hear more of their older songs done over by future bands that were inspired by A7X
This song would be five stars if it was instrumental, because they made Pantera's guitars sound pretty much exact, which is awesome. But Shadows completely ruins it with his voice, which is usually pretty good. Pantera- Walk- 10/10 Avenged Sevenfold- Walk- 5/10
I love a7x but this new crap they are trying to sell just isn't doing it for me. They have gotton way too soft, theres no screaming or cursing =(. In my opinion Waking the Fallen is still my favorite album, I got it when it first came out when I was nine and I am still not sick of those songs.
NO way could Avenged7fold ever carry the flame that Pantera lit. They didn't even try to make into something of their own. Terrible, shameless, and in bad taste. These guys have made a living off of riding other's coattails, and I can't believe people cannot recognize this! SHEEP! Go away av7x! Go back to your job at the gas station and never come back!
altho no one can beat pantera, this remake is absolutly amazing. people might say its a easy song to cover, and it is, but this is just amazing. another reason why A7X kills ----RIP Dime----
It's and ok Re-make.....I mean its pretty good but its needs just alittle more edge to it....Im sure alot of Pantera fans think this is good and some think its bad....Its both...."Fairly Decent"
I understand the difference between pantera and a7x but i really like this song its a great cover that i think any a7x or pantera fan should get 1 thing to itunes is that they need to get live in the lbc- diamonds in the rough which is were this song is from reply yes if u agree
Why? A great chugging metal song by Pantera is re-done as this. Instrumentally it's decent, but M Shadows just absolutely ruins it with his terrible vocals. Do yourself a favor, don't get this, go get the original by Pantera, and enjoy some real metal.
Avenged Sevenfold Is one of the best bands of the decade (along with Foo Fighters and Audioslave), but this is an ok song. I'd buy the original before I bought this. If you want some better songs, just listen to City Of Evil. Ok song, but Pantera was better.
this song, this band, and pantera are all great. personally, i don't think the song is worth buying as a single. no a7x is not metal and i don't think they try to be but they do like metal and are trying to acknowledge the influence metal has had on their music. anyone who tries to overly glorify OR belittle this version of the song needs to lighten up.
im a big fan of Avenged Sevenfold and im only 13 (lol). anyways amazing song and i give it 5 stars. this completes many of my A7X albums i have. I also recommend Disturbed and Slipknot some another good bands. (maybe not the lyrics though =) )
This cover is well executed by a band with excellent musicianship. Admittedly, A7X is not as good as Pantera, but I see nothing wrong with paying their respects to Dimebag and everyone else.
