AVENGED SEVENFOLD Borrows From GUNS N' ROSES For 'Seize The Day' VideoJuly 6, 2006
Chris Harris of MTV.com is reporting that the video for "Seize the Day", the third single from AVENGED SEVENFOLD's 2005 LP, "City of Evil" — intentionally or not — borrows a few cues from GUNS N' ROSES' epic 1992 clip for "November Rain", which cost $1.5 million to make and featured Axl Rose and then-girlfriend Stephanie Seymour being wed in a church before shifting to depict the model's funeral.
The gritty "Seize the Day" video, which was directed by Wayne Isham (METALLICA, VELVET REVOLVER),opens with AVENGED frontman M. Shadows and his pregnant wife — played by the singer's actual girlfriend of more than a dozen years, the band's ex-tour manager Valary DiBenedetto — laughing and shooting footage of each other with a camcorder. The rest of the AVENGED come to collect Shadows and he leaves with them despite his wife's strenuous objections. The boys drive off to hold up a liquor store and escape out the shop's back door as the police roll up. But Shadows is snatched up by the cops and hauled to jail.
