So I have been doing some listening to the A7X catalogue and some songs really stood out to me. Brompton Cocktail from the self titled album and Planets from Hail to the King (HTTK). I just feel like these 2 songs are so unique within the context of the album. For instance, Plantes sounds much more like the Stage album than HTTK. Both are such kickass songs. But If I had to choose I would go Planets, its suck a massive and epic song. The moment the trumpets play in the background, the story around the song (makes me think of the Old ones from H.P. Lovecrafts---Giants dormant in the sky.....holy shit!), the two amazing solos (one shreddy but melodic and the other so bluesy and with so much feel), the chord changes...goddamn.


So for the deep divers of their discographies, what are your current favourites, and why?

That's always a tough question man! Save Me and Beast and the Harlot are pretty much always shoulder to shoulder at the top of the list so either of those two. Although recently I went and relistened to The Stage Deluxe Edition from start to finish and I realized just how much I enjoy Simulation.

Planets is actually one of the few songs I just haven't been able to get into. I don't know why, I'm just not into it. Brompton Cocktail however is amazing. I would say right now as far as deep dives go I'm into Angels from The Stage. And The Dancing Dead from Diamonds. I love hearing Matt talking to someone casually like "you doing alright man" right before Syn starts the solo.

This is a pretty weird one and I’ve never heard anyone say they really enjoy this song which is lips of deceit. I’ve been listening to it quite often, I just love the way m shadows screams and the speed of the song!
This IS a jam!!! I just read in a separate forum you claimed you haven't uploaded a video of you playing yet. This intro should be your grand entry into media! Its a fun one to learn!

"The Wicked End" came on shuffle today, and I was taken in all over again. The fucking batshit arrangement on that song, and Matt's overlaid vocals and ALL THE MELODIES and shit, working together. Goddamn. No pun intended.
Yes! Still one of my favorites from City of Evil, I’ll never forget the first time I heard that solo!
