* SymphonicMetal: Not their main characteristic by any means, but a number of their songs use violins, pianos, horns or choirs. The middle part of "The Wicked End" and the ending of "Strength of the World" (on ''City of Evil''), "Afterlife" and "A Little Piece of Heaven" (on ''Avenged Sevenfold'') and "Roman Sky" (on ''Music/TheStage'') are the most notable examples.

After a SelfTitledAlbum that was somewhat more pop-ish and groove-oriented, the band was going for a darker and more progressive release with ''Nightmare'' which got even darker when The Rev suddenly passed away on Dec. 28, 2009, just after the album's writing phase was finished. The lyrics were mostly rewritten after that[[note]]it was originally going to be a concept album "sort of like ''Music/TheWall'' or ''Music/OperationMindcrime''" according to Johnny Christ[[/note]], and the last two songs "Fiction" and "Save Me" notoriously feature The Rev's last vocal recordings.

** ''Nightmare'' started out as one before it mostly became a tribute album to The Rev. You can nevertheless catch a glimpse of the original concept in the songs that aren't about him (the first five songs and maybe "God Hates Us"), as they all revolve around death, murder, madness and/or retribution.

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, "Fiction" has the Rev singing "I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you." The final track "Save Me" has M. Shadows sing "Help me find my way."

* MinisculeRocking: "To End the Rapture" and "Waking the Fallen", which serve as {{Album Intro Track}}s, are only 1'40 long. [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness The band stopped doing those after their second album on, though.]]
