Hey, I just don't get why so much metal fans hate Avenged Sevenfold. So I'm asking with this thread to those metal fans: why do you hate Avenged Sevenfold?
(Sorry for my bad english btw, I'm from holland )

^ Everything he said.

Jumping on the bandwagon.
Not many actually hate them. they just jump on the bandwagon.

This in combination with their ridiculous stage names and outfits.


Well to be fair, they were younger then and now they don't dress that way anymore. And lot's of people have stage names. Axl Rose, Slash, The Edge, Buckethead etc.

Because they aint brutal, and their fanbase consists of little 12 year old kids, and little 15 year old kids, that think they're the best metal band evar.
#8
The stage names, and I don't really like the singers voice. I don't hate them, I'm just not a fan.
#9
the singers voice is annoying, the band members themselves are annoying, the music they play is displeasing to my ears, zack and synyster gates are decent guitarists but i still dislike their music and i find them lame.
you brought a hooker to church?
#11
Yeah, their stage names don't bother me. Except for Zacky Vengeance. That's just stupid. I just legitimately don't enjoy their music. It fails to capture my interest. There was this one song I heard by them once though which struck me as very 90's punk-ish, and it wasn't too bad. Apparently it was a very old song by them.
#12
I hate them because a lot of their riffs are very generic, and some of the riffs from the most of their songs I've heard are very similar to something else, it's just ridiculous. I also can't stand the generic vocals that every goddamn Warped Tour band has. Those are the same reasons I hate Bullet for My Valentine too. Hater's gon hate.

They dont' suck just because they aren't brutal. You just prefer brutal music apparently.
And you hate their fanbase, not the band themselves.

But Slash isn't as ridiculous as XXXSYNYSTER666GATESxxx. I don't hate a7x, I'm just saying that it sounds like a 12-year-old came up with their stage names.

I personally think they're alright. I really, really don't like their leads though, they annoy the hell out of me and sound more like a kitten castration clinic than solos.
#18
I just really stopped listening to them. It's not like the music is terrible or anything, for me it was just a phase that I grew out of.

I guess bandwagon, opinion and ignorance are the major causes.

Well The Rev came up with it.
IIRC they were out drinking one night, and The Rev was goofing around and they went to the cemetery and he saw the gates and said those gates look sinister. Then he said to Brian that he is now Synyster Gates. Something like that.

The name wasn't trying to be 'cool' or anything, there was a story behind it and it just stuck.

Was it this song?

It's from their first album in 2001. The song was written for M. Shadows' other band, a punk band called Successful Failure.

You're wrong, unless you give a source.

SKEDIT: ^ I thought it might have been that song as well.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Now everyone tries to distance themselves from the bandwagon. I love it.

On topic, their music isn't interesting to me, so I don't comment on it much. It's not good enough that I listen to it regularly and it's not bad enough to incite commentary. It's just kind of blah.

Stop jumping on the A7X are awesome bandwagon.
#31
Their singer sounds like a wheezing old man, swearing unconvincingly (except when he attempts crooning, and puts on this really weird nasal voice that the human voice really shouldn't sound like), their metal-style riffs have very little energy or power, and the hooks that are supposed to be catchy are dull. They sound like a really unsuccessful mix of metal and pop.

If they wanted to mix metal with pop in an unshit way,they should have done this:

I'm not. I don't think they are awesome. I just think the hate they get is very un-deserved and I'm just defending with valid points.

I think he says something of the sort, though it's taken out of context. I think it's in the "All Ecxess" documentary, and he says that he plays with the most talented group of musicians... and Johnny. He didn't say it in an over-confident manner, but more like, "I love these guys lol no homo" kinda way.

To each his own. Many of people don't like them and saying that everyone jumps on the bandwagon is nonsensical. You missed the point of what I wrote, and took it as a shot against yourself instead.

Ahh, I see. That's just stupid that people take that way out of context like that. All bands say they play with the most talented group of musicians because they are great friends. They aren't saying they are the best.

If I was in a band and on great terms with them like that, I would do the same thing.
