A7X is awesome. don't listen to them as much as i used to a few years ago but every once in awhile i love to listen to a few songs by them. i never understood the hate either, i guess it's mostly elitist pricks who don't listen to anything outside the big four bands and black metal who hate them.

You can sorta make a case for one (but not really) but Zacky 'gifted'? How'd you arrive at this conclusion?

Me? I have nothing against their musicianship or playing ability. Especially the guitarists. I think they do indeed get much more hate than what they deserve.


However, their music is just awful. I mean, some of their older stuff was alright, but more recently they've gained a very "poppified" metal sound, like the OTT attempt to appeal to the mainstream. It's just awful.


And yes, their fans are annoying as shit as well, though that doesn't have much to do with the band themselves.

They have some cool songs, some bad songs. My biggest problem with them is they use any combination of

waaaaay too fucking much.

I used to be a huge fan, now I just enjoy them every now and then (only the self titled for the most part). I don't thin they get that much hate to be honest. There are a few 'snob's but for the most part it's people who genuinely don't like it and keep it to themselves. A lot of the fans bring the hate onto themselves.

Because people think its cool to hate bands and talk constantly about how much they hate them.

Reasonably talented musicians, and they do have some genuinely good songs.

But their fanbase..... 'A7X r the best band in the world everrrr xDDDDDDD and all other bands suck compared to them. i love syn gates z0mg' ..... *shudder*


Shame that the Rev died, he was a talented guy.

I mean they're completely irrelevant now, so it doesn't matter. This is literally the first time I've heard their name since I was in middle school 5 or 6 years ago.

I'll give you some insight to why I dislike them though.

-They're uninspired and unoriginal metalcore with nothing special to offer. They give an even worse name to a genre people hate because it has core in the name. There's good metalcore and deathcore out there like Misery Signals, Every Time I Die, and Botch. Popular bands like Avenged Sevenfold and Escape the Fate, who hardly should be classified in the genre, give it a bad reputation.

-They couldn't try harder to be Pantera (who an obscenely overrated band), right down to their "attitude". Their guitarists sound like they've only ever listened to Dimebag Darrel play and their singer has an unappealing and annoying voice. Their lyrics are stupidly shallow no matter how hard they try to be deep and dark.

-They wear the confederate flag because their marketing ploy tells them to. They try to make it out as "cool" and rebellious. This same flag that stood for hate and slavery. I don't understand why people should be ok with it.

Those are a couple of the reasons I dislike them. Some might share my opinion.

Their fan base are horrible. But I'm a fan to be honest. They're great musicians and they don't deserve the hate they get. Yeah I'm not a fan of Shadow's voice, but I got used to it.

Also the way they dress and their stage names are hardly a "gimmick". It's not like Slipknots Mask's or W.A.S.P or anything like that. They used to dress stupid (but not as much anymore) and their names aren't what they rely on.



I wouldn't say they look ridiculous to be honest.

You should have posted the long version, where the singer sounds like he's deaf at the beginning(cracks me up everytime I hear it):

We never actually had this massive wave of people obsessing over them here. Yeah, they got real popular but nothing like this fanbase you're all referring to.
