About Me

My name is Ryan Browning. I am a 18 years old and a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I also swim for the school. I am from Athens, Georgia. During my free time, I like to hang out with friends, play video games, and sleep.

I am going to write about the rock band Avenged Sevenfold. I am writing about them because they are my favorite band and because they put out good music. I decided to choose them for my Pop Culture Blog Project because I have been listening to them for years.

Avenged Sevenfold (A7X) is an american rock band formed in 1999 from Huntington Beach, California. The band consisted of vocalist Matt Shadows, lead guitarist Synyster Gates, back up guitarist Zacky Vengeance, bassist Johnny Christ, and Jimmy (The Rev) Sullivan, but The Rev died in 2009 of a drug overdose. The band has released five total albums, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, Waking the Fallen, City of Evil, self-titled album Avenged Sevenfold, and Nightmare. The band has received much credit for their music, getting second behind Metallica on Ultimate Guitar’s Top Ten Bands of the Decade. Their newest album, Nightmare, which was dedicated to their lost drummer, The Rev, was released July 27, 2010 and was easily the number 1 album on Billboard 200, selling 163,000 copies it’s first week!
