It’ s been eleven years to the day (August 26, 2003) since Avenged Sevenfold’s second studio album, Waking the Fallen made its debut and now, the band have released a special edition of the record in honor of its “unusual” anniversary.
Earlier in the year, the band had revealed that they would be returning to Hopeless Records, their former record label, to release Waking the Fallen: Resurrected.
As part of the re-release, Waking the Fallen: Resurrected includes 11 previously unheard tracks, new artwork, a 30-minute film which features archived footage from the band (alla All Excess DVD, we assume), and the original, uncut video for the third single off the album, “Unholy Confessions.”
Now, if you’re someone who watched the video that was released in 2004, then this video is really different, though we will admit to seeing it several years ago.
Welcome to the internet age.
The original video was a concept video which was later scrapped when the band decided they didn’t like the final product. In a way, we agree with the band’s decision though the warehouse set up is reminiscent of their music video for “Afterlife.”
Check the uncut video below and tell us which you prefer, though we might be a little bias on this one.
