AMEN METAL BROTHER!.



i don't like A7X.. also if their name is avenged seven fold why is there an x? I really think they are more emo than metal. Metal = Long Hair (your natural colour not died black unless its like black and red or died blue or something more awsome) Metal = Bullet Belts and Cargo Pants and Jean Jackets. Baggy fitting Pants and either tight t-shirts or sleeveless and tattoos of demons and stuff (Kerry King).. Tight jeans ARE NOT METAL! BEING SKINNY AND WEARING GLOVES IS NOT METAL! UNLESS YOUR GLOVES HAVE HUGE SPIKES ON THEM, THEN ITS METAL! i could go on for a while about image in metal, personally i think a skullet is the best way to be metal (google Devin Townsend) But perhaps this conversation will continue and i can give more reasons A7X is not metal ( if you classify them as hardcore i will be satisfied perhaps)

Devin Townsend makes me proud to be somewhat bald. I think hes one of the few people who can pull off the skullet look along with Dallas from Nile.

Also, metal heads from the 80's worse tight jean pants, but none of that skin tight pants.

Someone who has a better idea about METAL me thinks?

I'd like to point something out about image:
A7X are signed to a huge "commercial" label (Warner Bros. i think), in my experience when signed to big/commercial labels or management agencies
you don't have alot of say as a band in some cases. This includes what you wear/image even the songs that go on your album at the best of times.
You can get away with alot more on smaller and Indie labels, but the HUGE labels are interested in making money full stop and will in turn make you look
and sound ridiculous as you guys have put it! Lighter songs, trendy image = SALES. That's a very generalised way of how BIG labels see things.

I've never liked Avenged Sevenfold, and never will. I don't like neither their music or their image.

The Pantera tip is problaby the best tip I've heard, regarding A7x tongue.gif

this video shows similarties in songs that a7x might have stole from other bands I'm not sure. But this just kinda makes me look down on them.

Everyone is copying anyone. In all things.
It's how you copy which matters.
Stones and Clapton stole from the blues, which stole from gospel and folk..
Classical composers stole from each other too..
Natural thing to do! wink.gif

They said that about Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis too. laugh.gif

Anyway A7x (*sic*) looks too much like a boy band clone to me.

Ok so my post on Metal was a joke. I even tried to make it sound, read, and look like a joke. Really, that joke is pretty much a universal sign for metal like "Black Metal ist krieg" joke. Sorry for the people who took it the wrong way. I was just jokingly quoting Sigma on his question why Metal is Evil.

Its a joke people. Sorry smile.gif

avenged is pretty ok and in my opinion it´s normal "to copy" as some of you already said, cause they got influenced by these bands! The bands play things they like, so it´s not unusual that the songs sound familiar somehow...

Anyway, A7x is gay, I agree.

Wow, that's some of the most ******* retarded things I have ever heard. Congrats.
And by the way, God's son was already crucified.

I can´t say I like AX7 very much. But I do understand that music is a limited medium and that a band is bound to copy another bands idea some day.

I´ve stated earlier, I know only Like and Don´t like. And If you don´t mind I´ll stick to that. smile.gif
