Black Veil Brides: 'Avenged Sevenfold Should Be a Very Celebrated Band in Metal World'
Black Veil Brides singer Andy Biersack once again touched on the "cannibalistic" side of the metal community, explaining how metal fans are afraid to admit liking something that's popular and even enjoy bashing it.

Chatting with Andrew Haug, the vocalist named Avenged Sevenfold as a good example, also singling out My Chemical Romance as a personal guilty pleasure from the early days.

"If something's good, people will like it, that's just the way the world works," Andy kicked off. "If a band in our world becomes successful, the metal community is very quick to jump on them and turn their back because now it's - sellouts or whatever.

"Avenged Sevenfold should be a very celebrated band in our world," he continued. "They're a band that's got 10 plus years, two No. 1 records - whether you like their music or not, those guys have put in the time and they belong to the hard rock community. They are - for better or worse, whether you like them or not - they are ours."

Agreeing that the same can be said about Metallica's "Black Album," Biersack confessed being a stereotypical metal fan himself back in the day. His guilty pleasure - My Chemical Romance.

"If something becomes popular, hard rock fans are afraid to admit that they like it. I'm guilty of it too. When I was a kid, I think an example would be ... My Chemical Romance. Everybody liked My Chemical Romance, all the girls liked My Chemical Romance. I remember thinking, 'I'm way too cool to like it,' but I bought the CD and I thought,' This is awesome.' But I couldn't admit it," the vocalist added.
