Hating a band because of its fanbase is stupid as hell.

I never hated Avenged Sevenfold, in fact I saw them live once and it was great. But I haven't listened to their music in a long time, guess I kinda got bored of it. If they ever release another album I'll check it for sure, though.

I know this is a LATE post, but alot of people hate on the fanbase of the metalcore Avenged IMHO, and IMHO they are very talented musicians from a theory and practical view point. They like to experiment and come up with different ideas, and different 'style themes', if you will. They have an extremely dedicated fanbase, from all ages and have alot of support for changes from fans. They're people who respect their songwriting and performing abilities, from people who even hate the sound, or genre for that matter. Most of the hate is either bandwagon, people who think all they do is scream, or people who generalize the fans as emotional 14 year old people that think shred solos, open palm mutes and sreams are all you need to make a good song.

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.
Truth.

I used to like them, then I turned 16

Personally, I started listening to them back in 2002. I liked their style then and I like it still to this day. I feel like I have gotten to listen to their music evolve and change for the better over the years. Many people are upset with that but honestly... I don't really like hearing the same same stuff album after album. I still feel like they bring their 'A' game and I am looking forward to their new album.

Respect to the people who don't like their music and just leave it at that.

Well, I researched this really quick, and stumbled upon their "Nightmare" song.

It started, and I was like: "Hey! this isn't thaaaat bad. Maybe it REALLY is just their fan-base..."

Theeeeen, the vocals busted in, and I'm like: "this is ****ing terrible." As far as Synister Gates: He's completely replaceable, which should speak for itself. (Stupid stage name, too.)

I love Avenged Sevenfold. But I don't wear any of their merchandise mostly because it is usually worn by wannabe emos who say that A7X are heavy metal.

First post in this thread since April. Nov 2013 join date. 95% sure this is a multi trying his first troll attempt.

Edit: I was going to post my honest, actual opinion, but there's been enough about them on this site lately, and it'll just get lost in a pile of "LUL GAY7X BLOWS DUDE" posts.

Where's the proof that I'm a Troll? Because I'm new to the forums?

Curious about your opinion, man. Seems pretty flawed, if you ask me.

Frankly, I've never sat down and actually LISTENED to Avenged Sevenfold, so I figured, instead of judging based off of what everyone else says, why not try it myself. So I did, then, I wrote that post. Sorry for being honest when I said I liked the instrumentals of the intro. Jesus Christ, way to jump to conclusions.

Avenged Sevenfold is pretty goddamn awesome. The guitar playing is excellent, the drums were great when the Rev was around, and the songwriting was quite good too. It's all a matter of taste of course, but in my opinion they're amazing.

What I dont get is the people in this thread calling Avenged Sevenfold overproduced.

They are probably Dream Theater fans too.
