Song of the Week: Avenged Sevenfold - Unholy Confessions

'Unholy Confessions' comes from the Californian five-piece’s second studio album ‘Waking The Fallen’ released in 2003. This album was the first to feature Johnny Christ on bass replacing Daemon Ash. This album is said to be the last A7X album to feature their metalcore sound although there are more clean vocals than their first album ‘Sounding The Seventh Trumpet.’

The video for ‘Unholy Confessions’ was recorded during a live performance by the band at the Music Box of the Henry Fonda Theatre, the actual song was then dubbed over. A7X’s record deal with Warner Bros Records requested a video for the song. The band didn’t like how the original concept from a year before (2003) turned out and so went back to the start. Mixed in with the live footage is clips of fans getting Avenged Sevenfold tattoos, playing guitar and piano and Johnny Christ posting the band’s stickers all over Hollywood Boulevard outside where the live footage was filmed.
