Hidden Secrets of Avenged Sevenfold Band Name
People who do not know about the secret behind the name and logo and everything about Avenged Sevenfold would definitely Assume that they are "evil cult". This article is written to explain that Deliberately A7x (abbreviation of the band) is not a band that you or they thought of before. Here's a secret about Avenged Sevenfold (A7x).
The name itself comes from the Bible is basically the first murder on Earth between Cain and Abel .. 'what goes around, comes around' kind of thing. And just so there is no confusion, Avenged Sevenfold is not a religious band "part of the Bible where the name comes is Genesis (King James Bible) - specifically Genesis 4:15, where Cain was sentenced to life in exile for murdering his brother." And the LORD said unto him, Thus whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him seven times And the LORD made a mark on Cain, lest any finding him should kill him ".
The abbreviation "A7X" for their band name was the idea of guitarist Zacky Vengeance. The title of Avenged Sevenfold's song "Chapter Four" refers to the fourth chapter of Genesis, in which the story of Cain and Abel takes place. The song's subject also appears to this story. "Beast and the Harot", yet another song derived from the Bible, comes from the Book of Revelation only it is written in the first person and refers to the punishment of Babylon the Great, world empire and seat of false religion. Another biblical reference occurs in the song "The Wicked End". In this song, several times it is said "dust the apple off, savor each bite, and deep inside you know Adam was right" making reference to Eve eating the forbidden fruit.
Although the title and the name of the band members' stage make references to religion, Shadows stated in an interview that they are not a religious band. "Anyone that reads the lyrics and really knew anything about us, they would know we're not promoting, the one thing about this band that I love that we never really shove any kind of, like, political beliefs or religion on people. musical We just there to entertain and maybe thought-provoking on both sides, but we are not trying "he said.
Like, really shove anything down anyone's throat. There are too many bands that do that nowadays, I think .. "The band has a few songs that somewhat political in nature like" Critical Acclaim "," Gunslinger "and" Blinded in Chains ". Song" Betrayed "on the album City of Evil tells the story of" Dimebag Darrell's death ".
