My fried told me some news about the Iron Maiden concert in Twickenham stadium this summer, I've been planning to go to this; but, he told me that the support band has been confirmed. I almost broke down in tears when I heard this.

The support band is Avenged Sevenfold. Why? Iron Maiden choose their support bands, they chose Avenged Sevenfold to support them. I cannot take that choice seriously, at all. Please, can somebody confirm that this is wrong?

I know many of you will say "oh TS don't be a jerk," or the whiny HxC kids will go "Hey u dikhed A7X is lyk th gratest band eva wid th 2 bst gitarists in da wrld," and some will tell me "just leave them alone."

No I won't, I think this is such a bad decision, I mean, Trivium got piss bombed - but I think they were worth the support slot - Avenged Sevenfold on the other hand will probably get shit bombed.

I don't think they're that bad. City of Evil was decent, just anything older than that was crap.

Just put up with them till Maiden comes on.

some a7x is good some is dire same with slipknot.
as for trvium i hate them more than anything else and i can't put my finger on why other than i don't like their music.
Also i wish Iron Maiden would do more gigs in the UK, i really want to see em
#4
Maiden can choose whoever they want, i think it's a good move.
think of all the scene kids who may just go to see avenged, not caring about maiden, then see maiden and be like aaahoooowww awesome.

just be thankful its not 50 cent, or such rubbish.
#5
I just listened to them for the first time, they're rubbish.

Although I think the same about Iron Maiden.

Get over it. You wanna watch Iron Maiden, then watch the support band you don't particularly like, instead of crying on the internet in an 'OMGZ I HATE TEH A7X!!!!!!!!111!ONE!!!' way. It's how gigs work, deal with it.
#11
A7X really isn't as bad as you people make it out to be. Their new album was good. I don't really listen to much of their old stuff, but they had a few good songs.
#12
Thank God I'm not going. At least Trivium have there influences and intentions in the right places; they want to just be a kickass metal band but Avenged Sevenfold just seem to target 11 year old hXc girls. It disgusts me.

I've seen Maiden before but wasn't all that impressed. I wouldn't mind seeing them again but no way in hell would I pay to see a support band like Avenged Sevenfold.

50 cent opening up for Maiden!? Best show ever!!! jk. Would be worth a laugh though, in an ironical sort of way.

Set their pants on fire...

...but seriously, they'r just a support band, put up eith 'em 'till maiden comes on and rocks your socks off. Some of us have had to put up with worse you know.

Him opened for Metallica; you should be grateful! And I had to sit through Dragonforce when I went to the Black Crusade, which was a giant pain is the ass.

Put bluntly: the bands you like will always have crappy openers. Get used to it.

I love Avenged. I just really like how the guitar harmonies work.

And I prefer them to Iron Maiden.

And frankly, Avenged really get the crowd pumped up. So for the show, it's a really good move.

Who would you rather it have been? Trivium are ****e.

That is what I think, exactly.

Whoever said that A7X's new album is a good metal album, you're wrong. It's just so formulaic and obvious. Since Metalcore died over a year ago, all metalcore bands are ditching their old sound, in my opinion, only Trivium has done that properly. A7X's new album sounds like it was made by businessmen who've never listened to metal before, and who are making what they think is metal.

Denizenz, I don't mind you labelling me a a sub culture following preteen, I know my opinions and I know that I don't like A7X, due to no reason other than I do not like their music. I realised the flaws in their music myself. They're definitely not technical metal.

Just go and get something to eat or something while Avenged Sevenfold are on?

I had my dinner when Trivium were playing the last time Maiden played in Glasgow.
#30
Jesus you people are ****ing stupid. It's a business. A7X is popular and draws fans. More money. Simple. Called the music BUSINESS after all.
#31
Avenged sevenfold may be a bunch of posers but theyre songs arent THAT bad, im sure you can sit through a few of their songs without suffering some sort of strange breakdown...
#32
I personally like Avenged Sevenfold.

What I really need to know is, who is the opening band for the March 16th Toronto show?
#33
It could be worse. Initially, just to make themselves all the more awesome by comparison, they had booked Soulja Boy, but he had to pull out.

I wasn't necessarily trying to label you. I was more talking about their fan base...

As far as I'm concerned, they are technical and they are metal, therefore they are technical metal. Gates may not be the best guitarist in the world, but he's on par with other power or even prog players...

No, Avenged Sevenfold don't get the crowd pumped, I've seen them live, especially when there's a crowd who've just seen Arch Enemy and are waiting for Metallica. Download 2006 showed how bad they were, nobody could give a **** about them, the only time that heads were turned was when they butchered "Walk." Trivium > A7X in so many ways.

Quote by Giant Tool

They aren't good live, their sound is awful, that singer has no presence, it is obvious that the guitarists aren't any good, as Synester's improvs and solos just sound like his left hand isn't pushing the strings down properly - the studio obviously overproduce their solos. On the other hand, Trivium are good live; but I wouldn't want them supporting Maiden - maybe Exodus, or Machine Head, or Metallica; that would be good, trying to watch Lars' ego deal with him being in a support slot.

Think of all the hot scene girls you could pick up TS

Business-wise like someone said, Iron Maiden would profit from this move. For some people like myself, I like both so it's a win-win situation. But I guess for others, too bad for you and just deal with it.
