Avenged Sevenfold in 10 Rock bands that sell much more than you think


Billboard has put a list of 10 rock bands whose popularity in album sales is greater than the mainstream coverage they receive, included Avenged Sevenfold. Below an excerpt.


The commercial success of Avenged Sevenfold may have peaked with 2005's City of Evil, which sold over a million copies. But the Warner Bros. act is still prospering well above the industry average. Their last album, 2013's Hail to the King, sold 587,000 copies, giving them a streak of five consecutive LPs to break a half-million.
