METAPHOR IN AVENGED SEVENFOLD SONG LYRICS
Metaphor is for most people a device of the poetic imagination and the rhetorical flourish—a matter of extraordinary rather than ordinary language. Moreover, metaphor is viewed as characteristic of language alone, a matter of words rather than thought or action. For this reason, most people think they can get along perfectly well without metaphor (Lakoff and Johnson, 2003). This study is aimed to analyze types of metaphor found in Avenged Sevenfold song lyrics. The data of this research is taken from selected song of one of the best Heavy Metal Band from United States, Avenged Sevenfold. The theory used in analyzing data is Metaphor theory from Lakoff and Johnson. The finding and the analysis are explained descriptively, therefore this study is a descriptive qualitative research. Data is taken by listening and reading the song lyric comprehensively. The result of the analysis, the song lyric of Avenged Sevenfold used Metaphor.
