In addition to the grunge sound of the band, their music also incorporates heavy metal, alternative rock and acoustic elements. Alice in Chains has released five studio albums, the last one, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, being released on May 28, 2013.
Avenged Sevenfold, sometimes abbreviated as A7X, combine unique lyrics and screamed vocals with hardcore punk-inspired metal, guitar attack, and infectious hooks. The band formed in Huntington Beach, CA in 1999 by Singer M. Shadows and guitarist Zacky Vengeance, later adding the lead guitarist and backing vocalist Synyster Gates, bass guitarist Johnny Christ, and drummer Arin Ilejay. To date, Avenged Sevenfold sold more than 8 million albums worldwide and has released five studio albums, one live DVD, and eighteen singles.
