With the final hours of 2019 counting down, Avenged Sevenfold's band members have checked in with their favorite albums of the year and they show a wide array of favorites both in and out of the rock and metal world. Two common choices among the members are Tool's Fear Inoculum and Billie Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

Tool may not come as a surprise to fans of the band, as longtime fans obviously had high hopes for the long in the works record which ended up being critically hailed by the time it finally arrived. M. Shadows, Synyster Gates, Johnny Christ and Brooks Wackerman all picked the album in their Top 5.

Likewise, rock adjacent favorite Billie Eilish scored recognition from the same four musicians for her When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? album, with Zacky Vengeance being the lone holdout in both cases.

Other acts scoring multiple nods among the five members include Kanye West for Jesus Is King (chosen by Shadows and Gates), Bring Me the Horizon's Amo (chosen by Shadows and Vengeance), Dirty Heads' Super Moon (chosen by Gates and Christ) and Weezer (Gates chose The Teal Record, while Christ chose The Black Album).
