Take a closer look at 'Resurrected's' brand new content...
- Two new songs, including the lead track 'Waking The Fallen: Resurrected,' which had been lost to history before it was discovered buried deep within the original multi-track recordings. Originally intended to make the album as a full song, it was ultimately reworked into a vocal free intro. Later the band drew inspiration from this lost song's piano intro, building it out into their hit song 'Beast And The Harlot' off of their next album 'City Of Evil'. This song is a previously unknown link between two major eras in the band's career.
- Four never before heard demos recorded by Thrice's Teppei Teranishi including 'Chapter Four,' 'Remenissions,' 'I Won't See You Tonight Part 1,' 'I Won't See You Tonight Part 2.' These early version demos contain alternate lyrics, melodies, and arrangements giving fans a unique and unprecedented behind the scenes look at the evolution of four of the band's most popular songs.
- Five live versions recorded in 2004 from some of the band's earliest shows including 'Chapter Four (Live In Ventura),' 'Desecrate Through Reverence (Live In Pomona),' 'Eternal Rest (Live In Pomona),' 'Unholy Confessions (Live In Ventura),' 'Second Heartbeat (Live In Ventura).' Very little live material from this era of Avenged Sevenfold's career has ever seen the light of day.
- A 30 minute documentary featuring brand new interviews from band looking back on the time of the lead up, demoing, recording and touring around the 'Waking The Fallen' album. The 30 minute film includes personal behind the scenes home movies and photos from the band's earliest days.
- The original first cut of the 'Unholy Confessions' music video.
