I used to hate Avenged Sevenfold, but I decided to give them another chance and I realized the guitarists are two very gifted musicians, along with the singer, so my question to you all, why do you think people give this band such hate?
#2
Bandwagoning mostly.

But also because their main audience are 13 year old emo kids and most people don't want to associate themselves with that crowd.

It takes alot for me to hate a band, I listen to everything from Classic Rock to gangster rap. So far the only band I have found hate for is brokencyde, they make A7X look like Primus.

I do enjoy their music though, like I said Im pretty open minded to music, but fanbase on the other hand.....

I quite like them. Cheesy metal isn't a bad thing.

That's when I saw them at Ozzfest!


I was never a fan. I won't deny they have some talent, but I just find their music to be boring.

I like 'em. Waking the fallen is awesome.

Fan base is one thing, personally, I don't like their fan base, but the musicians within the band, I can't help but respect them and acknowledge their talents.

mostly because when it comes to metal bands everyone has their favorites that are underground, and when they hear metal on the radio they wonder why this band is here while their favorite is not.... so if you happen to be mainstream popular most metalheads will hate you, unless you were around before 1993

Because they are genuinely D grade at best.

Sounds about right.

Also, TS, it's just ONE guitarist.


Personally, I just don't like how 1) they all have ridiculous stage names; 2) their music all sounds overproduced and is NOT really that talented, compared to what I usually listen to; and 3) their fans are annoying emo shits who think AX7 is so HARDCORE! Most kids like that wouldn't know hardcore if it made their ears bleed.

Edit:
Also, I have listened to quite a bit of their music. It was ok, as far as popular music goes. However, it got boring fast. For some damn reason, I actually bought their latest album, and it's...pretty much the worst album I own.

Slipknot's the line I draw for a good modern metal band. If they're more metal than Slipknot, they're good. If they have more hardcore/screamo/hip-hop/nu-metal than Slipknot has, they suck. A7X fall below Slipknot.

Slipknot has alot more nu metal/hardcore/ hip-hop shit than Avenged Sevenfold imo.

They have less metal than them too. That kinda marks them down.

I never understood how people don't hate them. Hell, I hated them instantly when I was into similar stuff when I was 12 and I've given them chances, still have the same opinion.

Goddamn it, they are not "gifted." They weren't born with the ability to play guitar. They ****ing practice.

With that said, they're alright. Hardly amazing.

This thread is pathetic, the main problem with them is their fanbase.

You get the faggy emo/scene kids who've never listened to a metal band then discover avenged sevenfold and shout about it like they've listened to them forever and it puts normal people off their music.
And they know their fanbase and so they now write awful "mainstream" metal bollocks which appeals to lots of those fag fans.
Basically city of evil was a good album and then they gained popularity and began to write rubbish for their awful fanbase and that's why there's so much hate.

I really like them. Not so much so that if I made this UG account in 2012 I'd choose them as a username, but they're still pretty good.

I think Synyster is really talented, as was the rev.

Now I agree with you, that their stuff is pretty overproduced.

But the talent comment is stupid.

Sure they may not be as talented as musicians YOU listen to, but you cannot deny they are talented. I fail to see how the talent comment is a valid point.

it's because of the fanbase that people don't want to be associated with. whether or not anyone is talented isn't a concern of mine, it's simply if i like the sound, and i personally, i like the sound of a bit of A7X.
