The discography of Avenged Sevenfold, an American heavy metal band, consists of seven studio albums, one soundtrack album, two compilation albums, 23 singles, two video albums and 19 music videos. Formed in Huntington Beach, California in 1999, the band originally featured vocalist M. Shadows, guitarist Zacky Vengeance, bassist Matt Wendt and drummer The Rev. Synyster Gates joined as second guitarist in 2001, just after the group released its debut album Sounding the Seventh Trumpet on Good Life Recordings, and later on Hopeless Records.[1]

After replacing Wendt with Justin Sane and later Dameon Ash, Avenged Sevenfold settled on Johnny Christ on bass in 2003 to record Waking the Fallen. The album was the band's first to chart in the US, reaching the top ten of the Billboard 200,[2] and was also certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[3] The 2005 follow-up City of Evil reached only number 30 on the chart,[2] but was certified platinum by the RIAA.[3] The second single from the album, "Bat Country", reached the top ten of the US Billboard Alternative Songs and Mainstream Rock charts,[4][5] and was certified gold by the RIAA.[3] "Beast and the Harlot" topped the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart.[6]

In 2007, the band released the self-titled album Avenged Sevenfold, which was the first to reach the top five of the Billboard 200 when it peaked at number 4.[2] The album was the last to feature The Rev, who died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol on December 28, 2009.[7] Mike Portnoy performed drums on 2010's Nightmare,[8] which topped the Billboard 200 for the first time in the band's career.[2] Lead single "Nightmare" topped the Billboard Heatseekers Songs chart and was certified gold by the RIAA,[9] while third single "So Far Away" became the band's first to top the Mainstream Rock chart.[5] 2014's "Not Ready to Die" topped the UK Rock & Metal Singles Chart.[6]

Arin Ilejay joined as The Rev's second replacement in 2013, performing on the band's sixth studio album Hail to the King.[10] The album followed Nightmare by topping the Billboard 200,[2] as well as being the group's first release to reach number 1 on the Canadian and UK Albums Charts.[11][12] "Hail to the King" and "Shepherd of Fire" both topped the Mainstream Rock chart.[5] Brooks Wackerman replaced Ilejay in 2015, and the following year the band released The Stage without any prior announcement.[13] The album reached number 4 on the Billboard 200 and topped the Canadian Albums Chart.[2][11]
