Avenged Sevenfold “Carry On” With New Song

Posted by on September 24, 2012


I guess it’s safe to say that Avenged Sevenfold like the Call of Duty series. The song “Not Ready to Die” was on an expansion pack for Calll of Duty: Black Ops, and now they’ve contributed a new song, “Carry On,” to Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Love them or hate them, it’s pretty insane that a band as heavy as A7X has gold and platinum records. Not heavy in a “cvlt/tr00” sort of way, more in a “this band is almost straight up power metal” kind of way. To the end, “Carry On” delivers. It’s uptempo, full of shredding, and more importantly, under 5 minutes. In the past, the band have taken themselves a bit too seriously, which sometimes led to overlong songs with a sense of self-importance they didn’t quite earn. This is understated, yet still over the top. The game (and the song) will be out on November 13. Watch this before it inevitably gets taken down.
