GREAT cover!!! Shads voice is so amazing! I don’t know how he does it, but even as a woman, I’m jealous. I actually think I like it better than the original…

Comment by Andrea

The original, it is not. It’s still a good cover, but no Ozzie.

It’s 12.45AM in the UK.
I’ve barely slept these past few nights.
Yet I still insist on listening to this before I go to bed.
Is this a sign of insanity or just extreme dedication to the cause?
Actually don’t answer that, I think the deathbat on my back has done that for me.

Not sure what I think of it yet but if it’s anything like the other songs of theirs I was unsure about, I’ll be listening to it excessively over the next few days.

Comment by Vanessa

Comment by Rachel

The cover is friken awesome!!! They did a great job! I can’t stop listening to it. =]

Comment by Sierra Embres

I absolutely hated this song until hearing this cover. Amazing job by the whole band, but especially Shadows…he really shows how flexible his vocals can become.

Comment by Zack

A7X kicks ass!!!

Comment by Sergio

Comment by mon

I’m not buying this song on Amazon because I prefer to buy music (of band’s I actually like and support) from them directly or off of iTunes, who won’t carry the album >_<

Can someone post a download?

Comment by Frankie C

Download the mp3 if you want it.

I would’ve bought the song but I won’t buy music from Amazon.

Comment by Frankie C

LOVE IT!!!!! :)

Comment by Kelly Vengeance

I think I died.

Comment by nicole

fucking nice one :D
Wish I could add it to my myspace..

Comment by HannarghlovesA7X

Loved the vocals, is it just me or is lately Matt’s voice getting stronger? The only thing though- wtf is up with the solo man? There’s none of the duet in it and it’s like he didn’t even do ANY of the original solo…oh well other than that it kicked some major ass haha

Comment by deathbat4life

Avenged Sevenfold always exceed everyone’s expectations with their covers. I honestly didn’t like this song before, but now I can’t stop listening. Love it!

Comment by ATM

Amazing vocals…hella confused about the guitar solo though. Still kicks ass..certainly better than FOtB.

I totally agree. Flash of the Blade was a big disappointment to me.

Comment by Drew

Amazing cover!!!

Comment by A7X Eternal Soldier

Dude, this is freakin amazing!

Comment by Aly

Comment by LindsayLunacy

Comment by maxine

And I loved Walk
but Id kill to see them cover some Motley….

Comment by Tara

I adore Shads’ voice it’s so fucking amazing and he kicks ozzy’s ass even though i love ozzy too. They did an amazing vers. of paranoid as they did with walk too. A7x for life.
