Tribute Thursday: Avenged Sevenfold

Good morning peeps!

Another Thursday, another Tribute…

Today’s tribute was introduced to me by a sweet small-town boy I dated a while back. This boy was literally obsessed with them, and with good reason too!

Avenged Sevenfold

Avenged Sevenfold or (A7X) is a heavy metal, hard rock, metalcore band from Huntington Beach, California who formed in the late 1990’s.

 Members: M. Shadows the vocalist, Synyster Gates the lead guitarist, Zacky Vengeance the rhythm guitarist and Johnny Christ the bassist.

The band has 5 albums to their name,   one live album/compilation/DVD, and eighteen singles and sold more than four million albums worldwide (thank you Wikipedia!)

In my own opinion they’re like a modern version of Metallica, but you can make your own mind up about them:

Happy Thursday my darlings!


Tribute Thursday: The Parlotones

Hello again my cherries and daggers,

One day closer and I’m sure you’ll all be singing to the tunes of the weekend!

But for now, I’m going to introduce you to one of the most successful bands in South Africa:

The Parlotones

They are an Indie rock, New wave, Post punk rock band from Johannesburg, South Africa (my home!) and are best known for the cool makeup Kahn Morbee (the lead) likes to wear in their music videos and live performances.

Other than Seether and Prime Circle, the band is one of the country’s favourite rock bands and their album  A World Next Door to Yours has been the best-selling rock album of the decade.

With over 19 awards, 10 albums, 3 EP’s to their names, they are definitely a band to watch… and throw your panties at. Just saying.

Check out their epic music videos below:

Have a kickass Thursday!
