Because it takes ten separate guitar tracks to make one of their songs, the guitarists are IMMENSELY overrated, their songs are generally stupid, their live performance is terrible, and they are at best a very mediocre band.

Surprisingly concise.




In all honesty, I don't actually dislike them that much, but christ, their fans are annoying.

The only thing accurate about this is Synester Gates being overrated. They do play good live, and it does not take 10 seperate tracks. If you have ever listened to them even once you would know this. IMO they are a talented band, but people hate on them because of the annoying vocals, their image, their lame fans, and because they are more mainstream.

Yeah, I like that video of Gates trying to sweep. My favourite part is when you find out he can only play arpeggios in one direction.

Lol, sorry, some of us like stuff that's heavy instead of just proclaiming itself to be heavy but actually playing radio rock.

because they're a mediocre band with pretty crap guitarists that somehow have become immensely popular. personally i don't really care, but i don't enjoy listening to them anyways

Mostly because of the way the dress and the fact that the majority of their fans are annoying. I like the music, although Waking the Fallen is way better than their new selftitled album.

I think they sold out personally. I liked their first two albums, but the City of Evil and Avenged Sevenfold albums both sucked tremendously.

I think the solos are god aweful. I don't really see what the whole "Synyster is the best guitarist ever" thing is all about. His solo's remind me of Slayer's, which is not a complement.

Plus the fans are SOOO annoying
