It's amazing how a band that was so heavy in a punk way could become the pop rock stars they are now. such huge differences from album to album, and that's what makes them great to me!

the title of this song translated into English means "witch's hammer". pretty cool.

"The Hammer of the Witch" to be exact. And did you know this was the first song Jade Puget wrote with AFI? :)
Report spam or abuse
Yes. It is the title of a book from 1487 describing witchcraft and its effects on society. Quite an interesting read. :)

AFI never 'sucked' or 'went off the rails'. They just don't play music of your personal taste now. They have more influences than hardcore punk bands; Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Moz, The Cure, NIN... just to name a few. Don't like their newer music? Don't listen, and quit fucking bitching about it. After all, they aren't writing music for YOU. And if they did, that WOULD be selling out. Screw you haters.

+Joe Molloy seems to be you think selling out is "getting big?" .. So please, explain The Ramones. 
Report spam or abuse
not at all. selling out is when you trade in the values that gave you an initial fan base for money and overproduction. the ramones never sold out, they stayed true. AFI however went from horror punk to alternative pop rock?

Haven't listened to this album in 16 years until right now... damn, this shit sucks. What the fuck was I thinking when I liked this band? I must have been tone deaf when I was a kid.

+Hot Girls In Bikinis holy crap that was the greatest youtube comment of all time.

My god they turned into a fucking sell out shit band. Don't sit here and disagree because you know nothing about music if you think they still sound like this.

+Susie G Thank you! Seriously people who hate on bands for evolving really piss me off. How can they not change after over 20 years of making music? Change is good. They still out on a good show, and play old songs! ❤

I respect new AFI and listen to them, but they are nowhere near as amazing as when they were like this. Always my favorite.

Anyways, got lyrics from this song tattooed on my arm, truly amazing song. one of my favourite AFI songs.

ALL their albums...each and every one, sound different from the last (with the exception of singles), and each one is uniquely good...they still rock...not too much my style anymore, but they're still good!

For those wondering "Malleus Maleficarum" is a book ,used in witch hunts Literal translation is "Hammer of The Witches" I love how literate AFI are :P

@mrmartinez41 um lets see, IM a HUGE FAN of afi, obviuosly your not. any REAL fan of afi could understand why bands change style of music, they dont like making the same record over and over, EXAMPLE: listen to the ALBUM VERY PROUD OF YA, then compare that album to BLACK SAILS IN THE SUNSET, if your smart you would realize they are very different albums. then Compare ATASF to AOD, again very different, Yet awesome. see what im trying to say, every album is its own thing. every is it own thin

I'd like to be AFI backwards, when it comes to my music career. Meaning, I'd like to put out two pop rock CDs to get the world's attention, then go just plain punk, and keep getting punk-er and punk-er until the entire world is yet again in love with punk.

I am from a small town. I am 28 years old now. I discovered punk rock thru the internet "Answer That" was the first album I bought because I had heard of them thru the Nitro Label. I went to warped tour and bought art of drowning there. Ever since then I have loved all their albums

You miss the point of self-expression. Some play flashy scales, while others musically exorcise their demons. Besides, most people relate better to catchy hooks and familiar sounds than being inundated with the buzzing of a bee colony(majority of metal solos). AFI have paid their dues. Have you? You're probably angry because your favorite group of unwashed nerds plays obscure scales to crowds of twenty for drink tickets. If they played music that made others feel good that wouldn't be so.

DEAR GOD. if you keep afi around for another 20 years we will sacrifice gay beiber, gaga, and all those other shitty ass pop fakes. AFI IS THE REALL DEAL, they wrote there own shit and everything a real,a rtist should do.

@XxLessThnZeroxX We'll you can listen to their new stuff, I'll pass. Maybe I'm evolving differently then you and A.F.I. I've seen this with other bands too. That's why Soulfy is my favorite band. They still have the fire inside their music. Sorry bro, you have no right to tell me to "SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO THE F**KIN MUSIC." Maybe you do, but I'll speak when I wish. PEACE.

@Marsdevilsvolta It really did seem like you were implying that they had nothing to do. Maybe then I wouldn't have "fallacies." Regardless of whether the genre died or not, it has evolved from it's origin. I am done arguing with you, so I'll let you have the last word, mate.

I think they peaked with this album. I got into AFI kinda late, around All Hallows EP, I gotta say I definitely prefer the older shit even up to Art of Drowning, there's some killer gang vox on it! Even Sing the Sorrow is good once in a while, but fuck they've gone off the rails lately X_x

@KeyXLimeXPieXPunko They DID change on Sing the Sorrow....and it sounded great. Everything after that was complete garbage. Yes, change is good, and when AFI first changed, it was great. Then they changed again, and it was utter crap. Just because you change your style doesn't give you a free pass to say it's "good" just because they changed.

this is soo amazing. the lyrics are just awesome. they fit perfectly with afi's (old) sound.
Report spam or abuse
What you are saying is that when you get into your 30s, you want your punx rawx to be more mellow, and befitting of the lifestyle you now lead, which has totally abandoned any kind of dedication to the punk ethic you once valued with your life. Oh yeah, man. NO ONE has every said anything like that before. Gross.

Punk and metal musicians' lyrics are all crap because no one can understand them. And who cares? The lyrics aren't what's important about metal and punk, at least not for me. And you think anyone can do blast beats and sweeps? You're kidding right?

Damn people, I haven't seen it so much on this video, but on almost every single AFI video I see on here people are nagging about old and new AFI and which is better and what the best album is and whatnot. I'm here to set it straight. AFI is my favorite band of all time. I don't listen to anything but AFI, save a couple of bands. AFI is a band whose music is always good. Old AFI kicks ass, plain and simple. They are awesome to hardcore punk fans and such. Newer AFI (Sing The Sorrow-) also has

@chelseaxlaurenxbetch he can say they were punk all he wants in 07 or 08 and i wouldnt fully disagree becasue punk is doing what you want to do, just being unique which they are and were so looking back they were punk ill give that. but as far as the genre that was created and what you call "punk", back in that time, nah they werent. that died long ago. and i said genres give people something to do NOT implying that anyone has nothing do do, try not to use fallacies in your arguments.

@KeyXLimeXPieXPunko No, they show signs of making music to make money. Maturity =/= becoming mainstream. Maturity = the ability to write great music regardless of the genre, not changing your genre entirely.

badass songs! It depends on what your musical tastes are. I for one, like both old and new AFI. The music they made from both eras is awesome and I think that somehow they all share some characteristics in some form. So stop nagging about it! Some people only like the new, some like only the old, and some like both. If anybody likes AFI at all, that's a good thing. Man, you have to love some good Cereal Wars and Malleus Maleficarum, and The Leaving Song Part 2 and Now The World also rule.

But if they really listened, it still sounds like good old AFI, they still have the homey touches of they're sound. December Underground was fantastic, it's so appetizing to the ears, very different from they're usual shit like this album for instance, or they're All Hollows EP. jUST ALL IN ALL, all of us AFI fans should be glad they STILL make music with the original members. I know I am.

@MrIGOTTHATGOODGOOD AFI has been around for a very long time, do you expect them to have been interested in the exact same kind of music their entire career? People's taste in music can change, and the change in sound reflects that. Just be glad they made blaqk audio as an outlet for electronic music to keep AFI more rock.
