Avenged Sevenfold is an American rock band from Huntington Beach, California. Vocalist Matt Sanders(who also goes by M. Shadows) dabbled in punk rock before putting together the band’s original lineup with his middle-school friends Matt Wendt, Zacky Vengeance, and The Rev. Sanders named the band Avenged Sevenfold after the biblical story of Cain and Abel from the Book of Genesis. Cain kills his brother Abel and his punishment is banishment. Cain was afraid he will be found and killed,"And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.”
The band has released seven studio albums and sold more than eight million copies worldwide. They have a huge pile of music accolades, and“The Stage” was nominated for the Best Rock Song Grammy in 2018.
