We had many topics about them and I can say that they have many lovers and also many haters.. it's a polemic band laugh.gif . I listen to their music and like some songs but I'm not a fan. I have no problem with their image, the clothes that they use and the make up. I like the hard/glam rock of the 80's scene so what the difference? ohmy.gif

They're ok, thrashed and scattered is probably the song I like the most from them. Like a lot of bands I like listening to their music but their videos really put me off.

I absolutely adored "Waking The Fallen" when it came out. And sounding the seventh trumpet is allright too. The city of evil is a bit too much towards power metal for my taste and I haven't heard the new album yet.

But as far as I'm concerned, good guitarists, good drummer, amaaazing vocalist.

I LOVE them! They are my all time favorite band! Synyster Gates is also my all time guitar idol.

When that is said and done - I like all of their songs almost, and the mentioned A Little Piece of Heaven is especially cool, due to all the theatrical effects in it, and because it's so upright weird, which is a huge bonus. I find their solo's and guitar harmonies especially cool too. They are not like every other band music wise either. Shadows, the vocalist, is one of a kind in my eyes, with his extremely powerful and versatile voice. Zacky V, the rhythm guitarist is also pretty darn good on soloing as well as rhythm, as seen in some of their harmonies, and also a vocalist good enough to fill the vocalist role if needed. I don't know much about Johnny Christ, the bassist, because it's very hard to hear him. The Rev is the best drummer in my opinion, and he has pretty similar style as Joey from Slipknot, who are a good drummer, no matter what you think of Slipknot's music. He have also written a lot of the bands most popular songs like "Almost Easy", "A Little Piece Of Heaven" and "Critical Acclaim". And finally, Synyster Gates. He writes most of the bands music and guitars, and what I like with him the most, is his ability to take things from other cultures and mix them together to make the music one of a kind, both in sound and all that. Many people compare his style to Alexi Laiho, except that I find Syn's playing even cleaner and better, and he can play even faster too.

And of course I love their image!

EDIT: Sorry Batista, I'm gonna offend you so much!
Don't like the faux shredding(but still not as bad as Dan Jacobs), pretty decent songwriting. For some reason everytime I see that freakin abbreviation of thier name I want to kick a stoner in the balls.

All he does is shred Chromatic runs. badly. there is good metal out there, but you wouldn't know it from this. may i humbly suggest listening to High On Fire? Heavy as hell, and one of the best metal bands out there right now.

i have, and it sucks. its all just a bunch of random notes strung together. this is not metal, its crappy pop marketed as metal to people who don't know any better.

His recorded stuff is pretty ok, he just doesn't impress me. His sense of melody is ok, and his speed runs could be much better, and I'm sorry but his vibrato IMO is pretty horrible. Just overall, he sounds very ameteurish. He could benefit alot with some quite time alone with his guitar and a drum machine, and some blues practicing to get his vibrato in shape.
IMO Alexi Laiho is much better. He just sounds like a pro, the devil is in the details, and the details of Synyster's playing is not there IMO.
I'm totally with guitarman on this one, check out High On Fire, they are a 3 piece, Matt Pike is a killer guitar player, clean, fast, good vibrato, nice and aggressive when he needs it, spacey and atmospheric when the song calls for it.
