Machine Head Accuse A7X of Stealing Their Logo: 'There Are Some Uncanny Similarities'
Following frontman Robb Flynn's recent ripoff comments regarding the new Avenged Sevenfold record "Hail to the King," Machine Head have now accused the metal five-piece of copying their logo. The whole matter was started over on Blabbermouth's Facebook page, with an image of the two bands' logos side by side. Further fueling the fire, Machine Head shared the image with a question: "Did Avenged Sevenfold copy Machine Head's logo?"

"Last night the Facebook posted a side by side photo of Avenged Sevenfold's new stage set against Machine Head's 16-year-old lion crest," the official post reads. "Unquestionably, lion crests have been around for ages, but there are some uncanny similarities to Machine Head's distinct lion crest.
  • Lions (with axes)
  • Roman numerals at the bottom
  • Band symbol in the center
  • Black and white juxtaposition in the center Head Cases tell us what think." In a separate WAAF Radio interview, A7X singer M. Shadows addressed Flynn's plagiarism accusations, saying that "more than anything, [Robb's comments] brought a lot of attention to the record."

    "I don't really care what anyone says, but when people ask you about it over and over, you have to have some sort of response," Shadows explained. "And my response is just, look, I know the guy. He can say whatever he says. He's a grown-a-s adult. He's 40-something years old and has an opinion on our record. I guess he can write and say whatever he wants." You can check out the photo below and let us know what you think in the comments.
