Album Info

Waking the Fallen is the second album by Avenged Sevenfold. The album was released on August 26, 2003 by Hopeless Records. It is the last Avenged Sevenfold album to feature their metalcore sound, although there are much more clean vocals on this album than their first release, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet. Waking the Fallen was Avenged Sevenfold's first album to feature Johnny Christ on bass as well as the first to feature the full current line-up, after Daemon Ash's Departure. The album sold 370,000 copies across the world, of which 310,000 were sold in America.

Waking the Fallen received a positive profile in Billboard, with the magazine comparing Avenged Sevenfold to bands like NOFX, Iron Maiden, and Metallica. In other profiles, the album also received comparisons to the Misfits and further comparisons to Iron Maiden. "Chapter Four" was featured in Madden 2004 which garnered enough exposure to lead to a record deal with Warner Bros. Records.
