"As a reviewer before me estutely pointed out "only real fans" will be interested in watching a 2 hour documentary about Avenged Sevenfold. I absolutely agree with this, but fail to see why this would warrant a poor review. An "All Access" DVD is made for real fans, its not made for people that heard City of Evil and thought that it was cool. It was made for people who heard Sounding the Seventh Trumpet and waited patiently for Waking the Fallen, and then waited again eagerly for City of Evil. If you follow the band and have ever wondered; hey how did these guys get their stage names? or I wonder what these guys were like back in highschool? or what is that demonic sounding high pitched voice on "The Art of Subconscious Illusion"? Then this DVD is made for you, and trust me, as someone who greatly appreciates A7X and what they have done, you will not be dissapointed."
Thank you A7X

"This is, a DVD for the fans. Who else would buy it anyway? The guys did a great job compiling footage from their entire history to give you a glimpse into their world. It is great to see that these are down to earth, if a little wild, guys who made good. By the way, this is the best band out there today, and anything they do in the future will be great because they continue to push the boundaries and make great records, not singles for pop consumption. Part of the DVD also clears up and ongoing issue about Shadows' voice. They decided before Waking the Fallen that that album would be 1/2 scream, 1/2 sing and the next album (City of Evil) would be a singing album. Zacky said in a guitar mag interview that they didn't want to contribute to that noise polution (screaming) anymore. I can confirm that Shadows does have plenty of vocal power and can still scream when he wants to. I saw them in Atlanta last year and he has live vocal power comparable to Steven Tyler.
If you want a live concert video, this isn't it. It has about 4 live songs and 4 music videos, plus an audio only version of Pantera's "Walk". There is plenty of live footage of the guys on you tube if that is all you are looking for, even newer versions of songs like "Second Heartbeat" that are mostly singing. If you want an in depth look at the band and want to see a little raunchy good fun, buy this DVD. Great job by Avenged Sevenfold by putting out something the fan base (and it is a big fan base) will love. For those of you out there just getting a glimpse of these guys, buy the CD's, buy the DVD, buy a t-shirt, and get on the mailing list. When the new album and tour comes around, it is going to be an amazing ride."

"this really is a very good dvd and well worth having. it gives you a lot of insight into the lives of avenged sevenfold and how the band got formed. there's also a lot of extra stuff on the dvd as well. all the music videos are on there as well as how they were made. it was worth it just to finally see the sieze the day video. what you won't get it endless shots of sevenfold in concert. what you will get is honest commentary about what goes into the band. i liked it. there are moments that will amaze you and moments that will make you go what were they thinking. if you're a sevenfold fan you need this dvd."
SO worth it!!!

"i debated on getting this because most bonus movies have few things you actually want to watch! but this had hot guys(M. SHADOWS AND SIN OF COURSE) awesome music and hilarous moments. Lots of music vids and even a making of a vid. Great choice."
