Does anyone have any idea why this band have such short setlists, they have so many songs they should be playing, such as a few from their second album and city of evil. songs like Second Heartbeat, Beast and the Harlot, Seize the Day, Chapter Four would be nice inclusions to the list, and even a couple more from Nightmare such as Danger Line and Victim (unless shadows can't sing that high live :P)

I just think a band like them should be playing longer setlists for the fans. i mean Dave Grohl did say ""if your fav band comes out and plays for an hour & 15 min. Then they shouldn't be your favourite band.

So Avenged Sevenfold are a good band, doesn't matter if you don't like their style of music they are good musicians
But they can't play all their good songs if they just play for and hour and a half. They need a longer setlist so people can actually experience all that the band has to offer.

Their current setlist is: Nightmare, Critical Acclaim, Welcome to the Family, Almost Easy, Buried Alive, So Far Away, Afterlife, God Hates Us, Bat Country, Unholy Confessions, Fiction, Save Me

Even Avenged Sevenfold gets tired of hearing Avenged Sevenfold after an hour and a half.

But you have to take in musician fatigue. I'm sure singing in such a whiney voice all the time strains the vocal chords pretty fast.

Their singer sounds like a tired old man, wheezing and swearing unconvincingly. He might just like to go to bed early.

Let me just sum up what's going to happen ITT:

Fanboy: "A7X is THE BEST BAND EVARRRRRR. [INSERT OTHER MORONIC STATEMENTS HERE]"
Anti-A7X Post: lolnah.
Fanboy: "[insert RAAAAAEEEEEEEG here]"


...and this coming from a guy who doesn't mind Avenged Sevenfold, and likes some of their music quite a bit (City of Evil was a good Modern "Pop-Metal" album. I'll argue that any day), but goddamn the fanchildren just ****ing ruin the band for so many people.

First of all, completely different genres.
Second of all, RHCP rule.
Third of all, you like A7X...your argument is invalid.

AEDIT:


they're both rock, hardly "completely different genres".

RHCP are washed out and overrated.
and a7x is amazing.

I like some of A7X's work, so I guess just because of that my musical tastes are "shit" in your obviously totally important opinion?

Like Avenged Sevenfold or not, I'll say this. At least they make a different album every time they put one out. Unlike the Chili Peppers who constantly churn out the same music on every album.

This argument is gonna reach a moot point pretty soon.

But if you look at my previous post, you'll find that your argument is in fact invalid due to your admiration of a terrible band.

Tbh I never listened to them, I just dislike them because I feel like they ****ed up Mike Portnoy's career.
He deserves better.

I don't really care what anyone's music tastes are, he pissed me off when he called everyone assholes for having an opinion, so I started bashing on A7X, then he started bashing on RHCP...
I don't hate A7X, their music is nice to listen to sometimes but the fans piss me off, and so does the fact that MP left DT for them.
They're not shit like I said before, but the fans piss me off...

"Guinness tastes better than pepsi".

Personal taste aside, how is that an invalid statement?

well there's the problem.

Mike Portnoy preferred to play with Avenged Sevenfold than Dream Theater because he enjoyed it more. How is that ****ing up his career?

I like that one RHCP song, Under the Bridge, but I don't like the way RHCP plays it. I prefer covers.

i'm pretty sure that makes your argument invalid.

if mike portnoy threw away any chances with his old band for these guys and they weren't interested, that's not their fault. that's his fault. what goes around comes around.
i'm not expressing any kinda personal opinions here i'm just saying you can't blame them for him making a bad career move. we can however blame you for expressing opinions on a band that by your own admission you've never listened to.
