Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 1.37.23 PM

Earlier this week, we shared Phil Anselmo’s isolated vocal takes for “Walk,” from 1992′s Vulgar Display of Power. And since the response was so strong, today we’ve got Avenged Sevenfold vocalist M. Shadows’ (mostly) isolated vocals for his band’s 2011 hit “Nightmare.” Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.
