    For Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Avenged Sevenfold unleash "Carry On" their catchiest anthem since "Bat Country".

    Coupling the impressive airtight riff mastery of Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance, it's a veritable shredfest that'll get fans of both Iron Maiden and Dream Theater to drop their jaws. These two axeman only get more precise and powerful with every successive outing, and "Carry On" upholds that tradition of six-string evolution. Johnny Christ's bass also rumbles with visceral heft.

    Meanwhile, oscillating from his unbreakable croon to a theatrical growl, M. Shadows remains one of 21st century's most powerful and pummeling voices. He elevates the song to heights commensurate with the best fare from City of Evil.

    Avenged Sevenfold emerge from Nightmare with all guns blazing for Call of Duty: Black Ops II and one of their best songs yet.
