sorry gp im making this one.
discuss a7x related stuff such as the new album.
Edit:

For The Last Time! A7x Is Not Hardcore, We Know That!!! Its Just That This Is Where We Are Supposed To Put Them!!! Just Because They've Changed Their Style Does Not Mean They Suck, Nor That They Have Sold Out!!!

yeah the new cd is only sweet for like the first 5 songs, and the rest is kinda gay. the sweet songs sound too generic now, except critical acclaim

how about they suck and you should listen to real hardcore? gorilla biscuits, black flag, minor threat. everything else just doesnt compare

A7X aren't trying to be 'real hardcore' you elitist fag

A7X are not that great. Very generic.

They're not proper Hardcore, and I'm sure there's already an Ax7 thread. Stop making threads about a band that are hated by pretty much the entire pit, in the wrong forum, and then whining when they get closed.

I like the new album, didn't really like City of Evil, this is a lot better. Favourite song on the new album is either Dear God or Critical Acclaim.

Readin the big listy thing, they do kinda belong here, I guess in that 'oh, we've gotta put it somewhere... Fine, shove it in there' policy.
Umm to be honest, The parts I';ve heard are a bit naff, but I wanna give the whole thing a listen without having to pay for it really & realising I've wasted £17 i could've spent of good music if it turns turn lame. Got into em with city of Evil, tried listening to the earlier stuff, and the WTF stuff just Bored me, and heard nothing from... Whatever came first. TBH, the new stuff seems to have a strangely radio-friendly feel to it. I'm not gonna say the S word, because it's pointless & pathetic, but it'd definitely almost like they had a strict agenda - 'here's our political song, here's our different sounding ballady song, here's the balls-to-walls'...etc.

My first post on any of the incarnations of the A7X thread. I personally think the new album is great, i love how they went into the studio and just went wild and did whatever they felt like doing. The only critisism i have about the n ew album is the talk box on Lost, not a big fan of that. Other then that it was pretty damn amazing.
well theres my two cents

thats not a talkbox, thats called, autotuning, a talkbox has a evil flanger sound.

listen to It's My Life from Bon Jovi. That is a talk box.

M. Shadows used autotuning, which makes his sound a little feminine and robotic. lol

Almost Easy and Critical Acclaim are the only songs that i can stand from new album. Rest of the songs are pretty much crap.

Strewth. If those ARE the highlights, then I'll just go ahead & not even consider touching it. I've got a pal who's majorly into them, so I'll borrow her copy & leave it at that.

and pink, if your going to close this one give an explanation cause you didnt even reply to my pm.


I am not here at your beck and call, I also have a full time job. Do not attempt to call me out you little insignificant twat bag.

The reason the last one got closed is because you cretins couldn't keep it clean. I will see how this goes for the next few days. After that, if it descends to even half the shit of the last one it'll be closed forever.

Indeed I have been on every day, doing what I'm supposed to be doing which is moderating this forum and making sure it ticks over nicely. I work on average a 12-14 hour day at the moment and coming on here to find a page and a half of new replies on every thread of the first page and about half of the second takes up a huge amount of time despite how easy you think this is. You were not the only person to PM me this week and the others didn't get replies either as I stated, I have been busy. Yet none of them decided to open up a closed thread and personally attack me in it. I suggest you enter the real world before you decide to comment on my time management skills.

In the grand scheme of things we are all insignificant, you are just far less significant than quite probably any other person on this board to me. As I help maintain this particular part of the forum and make sure it runs properly, along with Andrew and all the other mods. Indeed we are slightly more significant. We had a mod strike last year the entire place descended into a hell hole without us.

Anyways, cool, new thread. I STILL havn't got my hands on the freken album - comes out on wednesday here, so finally I might be able to pick it up. I've stopped myself listening to ALPOH, Dear God, Unbound and Brompton Cocktail, just so I have some suprise, but I just wanna listen to the frekin album.

I don't reckon I can pick a favourite song, I pretty much love everything.

ssh, I don;t pay attentiopn much when I'm sober, was just using Youtube to watch Motorhead live for a week or 3. But tbh I liked Gunslinger, a little piece of Heaven seems quite nice, but a ;little weird really... I'll note the full tracklist tomorrow & listen to it that way. Ta' csn00b, just try not to pick a fight with the mods mate Apologies, but just not wise!

Yea Syn will break a string and not bother to change it becasue of the Floyd Rose. He likes its an exact science to chnage and tune this thing. So he just orders another guitar from schecter.

Quite possibly the worst album I have ever heard. City Of Evil was bad enough, but the new one takes the piss. Terrible.

Makes me even more pissed off that they cancelled a tour so they could make it.
