Avenged Sevenfold - "Dose"
Written by: Charles and Lexie
Avenged Sevenfold just released a brand new song, and it does NOT disappoint!
"Dose" has a very classic A7X sound, featuring wicked drums, guitar solos, and of course M. Shadows's signature vocals. It has quite a dark tone to it, appropriately pairing with, and effectively delivering, lyrics like, "Tastes of napalm fill the sky; Axis wins the war." Powerful imagery and poetic language create a unique piece that draws from the Vietnam War and throws its audience back in history.
This unique incorporation of history is makes the song all the more complex and admirable, and A7X's utilization of a dark and edgy sound is perfectly appropriate for the subject matter. Overall, the song is well-executed and easily earns a 9 out of 10!
