i mean, they're a really great band. I don't see why people like to make fun of them.

They're only a good band in the studio.
Live, they're as poor as yer average homeless junkie.
And, I mean c'mon, "Zachy Vengeance"? Thats a rather piss poor name is it not?

you're not around here much are you?

to answer your question they don't live up to the hype.

I think they're quite amazing, i mean the rev is like one of the best drummers, zacky and syn are both great guitarists, i don't see whats not to like.
#8
see that was a good performance, they don't deserve to be bashed. no band is perfect live, and that was pretty damn good.

The majority of bands out there are better in the studio than live anyway. As a band you will have your **** performances and your amazing, life-changing ones. Don't base a band's skill and prowess on one live performance.

Bashing a band based on their stage names?

Well done there...
#11
Bashing? Come on please. I havent heard a single bash on A7x ever but those are very sad stage names but thats not the point. If you wanna talk about bashed bands how about Megadeth. Bashed too much.

A7x are false metal. 13-year olds get driven to the mall to buy their cds.


How can they be "false metal" when they don't even profess to be metal in the first place??? They said it themselves, they don't try to be metal.

Really they should just try and be talented first.

I find them awesome and I haven't heard them bashed much. Most of my friends and I love em. Their not metal true, but who cares? I just consider them hard rock, people are to based around genres nowadays.

People bash them because they don't like them. And the TS saying they are a great band is an opinion. Just like saying they are a crappy band is an opinion. It's what people think and if you don't like it who cares. Listen to the bands you want and don't give a s**t about what other people think. I make fun of lots of bands Avenged Sevenfold included it does not mean you have to listen to me.
#18
They're not horrible, but their fans annoy me. A couple weeks ago one of my friends told me that "Synester Gates is the best guitarist ever". Their songs get annoying after a while.

Who are you to judge who is and is not talented? I'd love to see you make a band more successful than Avenged Sevenfold. Even if you have an amazing band, there's no point in having talent unless you can use it progressively such as this band has.

I believe most people bash them because they have the potential to be a great metal band but just choose to go for a hard rock sound.

I don't mind them, but i prefer their older stuff than whatever they're releasing now.
#22
Um, Avenged Sevenfold is metal. Rather poor metal, but still metal. Their first albums were metalcore. And I don't like them because people who have never picked up a guitar and those that can only play three power chords call them guitar gods. Same thing with Dragonfarce, honestly.

Well let's see they're not progressive and are just pretty generic, hard rock and metal are tired genres and are getting more and more boring.

Haha, but they ARE quite **** stage names

It's not my style of music, I can't really comment on how good they are at what they do. I'm just not ever going to get into them is all.

So I take it you can play harmonized guitar solos at 180 bpm then.

umm i can play way more than power chords and more than 3 of those and yet, theyre still guitar gods
and dont ever insult dragonforce

yes, very hard to get that harmony though with only 2 hands, lol
just noticed how similar they are, and i think people just hate anything with two guitarists that can do more than they can

Guitarists just seem to need to flex their E-P33N way too often. It's sad really.

I just hate the band. The singer really annoys me. Don't like his voice. Plus, their music is just poor. I just don't like their sound.

Yes and that's why those genres have not died and still attract millions of fans around the world.

Strangely that's because many people don't hear sections of the music and believe stuff is more original then it actually is.
#31
I bash them occasionally. A lot of thier songs are repetitve, almost every song Ive heard is at 200BPM+ tempoes, and frankly, I dont think either guitarist is that great. Id call them Dragonforce without the power metal.

But I dont think they're that bad.

The vocals suck, but I love Synyster's guitar playing.
