I'm hoping that Avenged Sevenfold's next radio single is Requiem.
I think they said something about releasing a ballad after This Means War a couple months ago. Out of the two ‘ballads’, I’d have to pick Crimson Day. I love Acid Rain, but I’d rather they release Planets with it. Unfortunately, I don’t think they’ll release Acid Rain and Planets together.
I would prefer Acid Rain, myself - but, realistically, I think it might be a little too far off from their usual fair for active rock stations to consider for airplay.
Oddly enough, if Acid Rain was performed by a different band than Avenged Sevenfold, I might actually view the song as being too bluesy for my liking. But it’s interesting hearing that style from Avenged Sevenfold, though.
