Avenged Sevenfold Refuse To 'Talk Shit' About Other Bands Anymore

AVENGED SEVENFOLD have revealed to Kerrang! magazine that their days of shit-talking about other bands are over. The California-based group, who had a run-in with ATREYU last year, put their new attitude down to being more mature. "We don’t slag off any bands anymore because we’re more mature and we're over it now," confessed frontman M. Shadows. "Some of the things we said looked worse than we meant them," added guitarist Zacky Vengeance. They're also determined not to rise to public fall-outs when other bands bait them. "Ninety percent of the bands who have talked shit about us in magazines have asked to be on tour with us," laughed Shadows. "One band who we talked shit about was told by their record company to talk shit back about us just so they could make a story and get some press out of it. It's all politics and bullshit and we're not going to mention other bands' names anymore because we don't want them to get the free publicity."

AVENGED SEVENFOLD's Warner Bros. debut, "City of Evil", was certified gold in January by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of 500,000 copies. The group's third album, "City Of Evil" is the follow-up to 2003's "Waking the Fallen", which was issued through Hopeless Records.

i am so sick of Avenged Sevenfold and all of thier bullsh**. Someone should tell them that thier stage names suck and nothing about their music is original. As much as they wanna say they invented the whole screaming into the mic thing, it just makes them look more foolish. These guys are complete posers who wanted to be punk, then hardcore, then they allegely also invented the metal/hardcore crossover and since they conquered all of those genres they had to move on to rock and roll. These guys have been struggling for years to find thier niche in some sort of music and they still havent.......and that is because they f u c k i n g suck. nice make up fellas

there are problems with what you've said:
A7x=not the greatest band, and they talked sh** about SW b.c they're touring with GN'R, so "m shadows" is kissing up to Axl Rose. m shadows is a kiss ass. meh...
Atreyu are emo sh**.

Well you also have to take in account the vocals sound differant from earlier albums because the lead singer tore his vocal chords before City of Evil. So I think its understandable if he cant scream like he did in the earlier albums.

the fact that everybody is so damn opinionated about these guys is actually helping their career.
if you don't like them, don't post a comment, and a7x stories probably won't make it on this site.
also, some of you need to learn to distinguish your purist view of metal and talent. just because a band doesn't play typical metal doesn't mean they have no talent.
the world is getting smaller by the day. all genres of music are crossing over. we had to sit through about 6 or 7 years of rap metal, nu metal...whatever the f*** you want to call it. i personally thought not much good ever came out of that, but the point is that some you will like and some you won't like.
whether you like it or not, the next wave has begun, and unfortunately for all the hardcore purists, avenged sevenfold has set the blueprint. i've said it before, they're not "metal", but they are talented and offering up something old mixed with something new, and people generally like it. take it or leave it.

i never said groundbreaking, but the next wave of "popular" heavy music (the last wave being rap metal/nu metal) has been set by this sound. it has nothing to do with talent, or whether a few metalheads like them or not. it just takes the slightest bit of originality to modernize an old sound
you can see it in many bands that are starting to pop up with a very similar sound now.
in case people haven't realized, popular music cycles with a few changes each time. the eighties "epic" sounding songs are back. more intricate arrangements, guitar solos, harmonies. in a few years, it will have passed, and the wave after that will follow a similar pattern to the change we saw from the eighties to the nineties with new bands that are heavily influenced by grunge. that movement will start with the alice in chains reunion this summer. that's my prediction anyway...history repeating itself.

The only fan base they have secured is trendy teenagers who don't miss one episode of TRL and do not know the difference between metal and pop.

Nonetheless... one concert, 20 slayer fans (probably escorting their emo kids) and a large fan-based comprised, key word: mainly of trendy teenagers does not change the fact that this band represents a current pop metal trend that will soon be forgotten and should be. Note, I never commented how large said fan base was, just the main demographic that constituted it. I saw them on the warped tour last summer (not by choice; work promotions for a martketing firm and was forced to attend) and my opinion of their on stage talent varies greatly from them putting on a "f***ing good show", but i suppose that is the point of a message board.

Putting a number like 20 on it doesn't make you right, and you did comment on their fan base, and I was simply informing you that it does go beyond trendy teenagers. There were trendy teenagers, but guess what...I saw a ton of trendy teenagers at the last Slayer show too. By the way, what were you doing at Warped Tour? That's where all the trendy teenagers go...except you right? Or were you just escorting and emo kid?

No buddy, I'm afraid you are wrong. I could care less if you (even if you are a true metal fan) get your kicks from seeing A7X live. My opinion is that their music and talent is played out/ trendy/ just not good man, and I have it on good authority a majority of people on this site would concur. What part of me saying I was forced to be there because of my job for a marketing firm that does promotional work at major concert venues don't you understand? It's called job requirements. I was making a valid point as to what demographic comprises the majority of their fan base (trendy teenagers) and if you don't agree.. well you are plain wrong. The number 20 was used as example to make you understand that yes Slayer fans may be present at A7X, but I'll gurantee they aren't near as prevelant as you are making it sound. Like for every homo A7X fan there is a guy wearing a slayer shirt hoisting him into the mosh pit. Right. This is a keyword now: metal underground web site, so if you are going to endorse a sh** pop band, I suggest you reserve your comments for the TRL message board.

COB hate crew. You make good points, but you don't need a weather man to tell which way the wind blows. I'm sure their music is marketed more to teenagers. Hell, the NFL markets mainly to men, but that doesn't mean that women don't watch football too. What about beer commercials? Marketed to men, but women like to drink beer. All the metal tabloid magazines are marketed to teenagers too. That doesn't make metal pop music.
I'm talking about the reality of being at one of their concerts. Not Warped Tour, one of their headlining concerts. The ones where you pay $20 to see that band specifically. A big drawn out explanation of why you personally don't like them doesn't change that there are a lot of true metal fans that appreciate their music. True music fans don't get hung up on who they think this band is imitating, or whether teenagers like them or not. It's pretty simple...you like them or you don't.

A7x isn't all that bad. Since most of you are too hardcore for them, then let it alone...stop talking about them and they'll go away. Personally, some of their songs are good. "Chapter Four" has a kick-ass guitar riff and some good drumming too! As far as being original, maybe they aren't. But not many bands are. It's hard to create your own sound when EVERYTHING has been done time and time again. For example, all the scream bands sound the same to me. They all growl and no one can understand a damn thing they're saying. At least A7x is giving it a shot. And they must be doing something right because "City of Evil" has sold over 500,000 records.

Honestly people need to get over themselves. You talking sh** about bands like A7X is just the same as bands talking sh** about other bands. It's immature. A7X growing out of talking sh** was them becoming mature, and not sh** shoud be said about that.
You people saying "Oh A7X sucks now that they don't scream," "oh A7X is So poser punk/ hardcore," "oh I wish A7X all got AIDS," "A7X is so corperate now, they should have stayed underground"
Shut the f*** up already people god! A lot of other bands have gone down the same road as A7X, starting out underground, with screaming, or as you people say "good music"and what not, then going onto their second project gaining more fans, then switching labels and lossing the screaming and going "mainstream" and having even more fans and more haters. Not all bands can stay underground forever. Once they get a pretty good amount of fans, those fans go out and spread the word, then more and more people get addicted to the music and become fans themselves. So you can't have 30 million fans and not become huge at one point or another. If you people care nothing for these bands, then why talk so much sh**? I mean seriously, I hate Coheed and Cambria, but you don't see me going to all their news headlines and posting a bunch of hate mail. It's a total waste of time. Go spend your hate time on your bands and post something good about them, I mean seriously people, grow the f*** up! I've been a fan of A7X since their very first album came out, and I'll admit that I do perfer their old stuff over their new stuff. But that doesn't make them suck now. They've experimented with metal, punk, hardcore, and everything in between, and you poeple put that down? These days it's all about experimeantation and variety, just because a band goes out and trys to mix punk metal and hardcore together doesn't mean they're "posers" or "try to be punk." How do you think other great bands got where they are now? They experimented, they talked some sh**, and they got a little mainstream. Every good band has gone through the same thing.

mithraism was the main roman religion established well before the concept of christianity. similarities between mithraism and christianity are almost laughable.

Virgin birth

Twelve followers

Killing and resurrection

Miracles

Birthdate on December 25

Morality

Mankind's savior

Known as the Light of the world


jesus was refered to as a living being only to make his story all the more unbelievably real.


"Purification through a ritualistic baptism was required of the faithful, who also took part in a ceremony in which they drank wine and ate bread to symbolize the body and blood of the god. Sundays were held sacred, and the birth of the god was celebrated annually on December the 25th. After the earthly mission of this god had been accomplished, he took part in a Last Supper with his companions before ascending to heaven, to forever protect the faithful from above."


if you think this is bullsh** just check out the evangelical opinions on mithraism (a work of satan to taint the belief in christ). you all live a well narrarated lie

interesting, bradisp***ed, i hadnt heard of that theory before (though the phrase mithraism DID sound a LITTLE familiar...). Pretty much all religions are laughably similar to christianity - why? because that's how Christianity proactively caused conversion to their beliefs, by adapting some of the features of other religions into their own, and demonising other religions' gods - thus causing people to become disillusioned with their beliefs and see Christianity as the 'true' religion. basically, there is absolutely NOTHING original about Christianity, it is merely a complicated mix of every other religion to ever exist. but hell, as long as they'r teaching that murder is not a good thing, and that we should all treat others in the same manner as we wish them to treat us, i'v got no problem with their values...maybe a few problems with christians themselves, and how they go about preaching their values and so forth...but the underlying points of christianity (ie, the ten commandments) are valid and worthwhile, i think.

But remember that God will always be more than you. He can help you in ways you can barely imagine. Sure I might not seem Christian, but that doesn't mean I'm not. If you want to reply to that go ahead. But since this is also about A7X, I will add that they might not be the best band in your opinion, but they might be in someone elses. And you might want to know that you are doing the exact thing that they said they would stop doing. You are "dissing" Avenged Sevenfold and who is it helping? I THINK NO ONE.

thank you for replying to me psythe. i really do thank you for reading my post. you have a good point about the God situation but what you are not seeing is that even though Buddhists do all that stuff you said up there, I believe that God is still the one and only god that we should worship. And for Zos Kia Cultus: you are a f u c k tard... just because you dont like a band for some reason doesnt mean they suck. in fact Avenged Sevenfold is good, Limp Bizkit is okay, Papa Roach is cool, and Cold is pretty okay too. Just because something isnt metal, doesnt mean its not good music. i know a lot of people that listen to metal and punk and rock and classical AND RAP. I hate rap but that doesnt mean i am going to go around saying "rap sucks" "rap eats sh**" or "f*** rap" okay? good.

Stef - what are threads for? With all that God stuff, I was making my arguments from a point of view that discluded personal belief; I am niether Christian nor Buddhist, but i do hold that many of the values taught by both theologies are very important to leading a happy life. I find that if you put your own beliefs and ideologies aside, you can get a much clearer, more in-depth perception on things. But then, everything being subjective, perhaps it could also be argued that one cannot properly present a case without having some sort of personal influence on the topic under consideration...

oh, and just a question - you said you hate rap, but stated that "Limp Bizkit is okay, Papa Roach is cool"; these being somewhat rapcore bands, how do you find that you can like one genre but despise the other? Is it more that you hate the musical elements of rap, but enjoy the actual lyrical/vocal stylings, and that this then crosses over well for you into rapcore, due to the slightly more metalised musical elements (as compared to actual rap, ie eminem)?

Psythe - no i really dont like that much rap really. i mean Papa Roach i really do like most of their stuff but Limp Bizkit i only like a few songs. My favorite bands are A7x, As I Lay Dying, Audioslave, ya know bands like them. but there are a few different things i like. i can actually stand like one or two of eminem songs but other than that i would rather listen to something else. as long as they have a good rock or metal-ish beat i like the muzik...unless they sond horrible. and i dont really hate rap, i would just like to listen to something else. same thing with country-- i like maybe 5 or 6 country songs but i'm not really all that much of a country muzik listener. but thank you for not bashing A7X like some pincha cabezas and for not cursing at me and all that other threatening crap.

Rulin'

I have to ask, why no more Korn bashing?....The cryptic " I have my reasons" leaves me wanting to know more.....You hate them more than anyone on these threads....Just had to ask.

My problem with A7X is that the band members are actually quite capable players and they even live the lifestyle....

BUT

Their new direction is a glam revivalists dream. They live a lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock and rolll...but they're conservatives (!?!??!)...People of their own political persuasion will be pickiting their shows....

My hats off to the drummer and even the guitarists for making a dead sound better, but the terrible singer ruins the whole package with his whiney/sneering voice and done before lyrics.....The songs are cookie cutter by design and the makeup needs to be put back in the time capsule.

I called it if they cover "Girls Girls Girls" and "Cherry Pie".

I remember reading about that, actually, I was fairly impressed. I never really had anything against Korn anyway, though I hardly listen to a song of theirs at all these days...still, a very nice gesture, and money well spent, I'm sure.

Stef - fair enough about the rap/music stuff. I respect myself enough to not threaten or curse people needlessly. I feel I would merely be insulting my own intelligence to take such a path. And bashing has never been my thing - constructive criticism is useful, in-depth analysis' are very interesting, and logical, sequitorial debates are much more informed ways of projecting one's opinions, I believe.

To be honest, my library contains three Avenged Sevenfold albums, though I think I may have listened to only a third of these...maybe once...From what I remember, they had an alright sound going in a couple of their songs, but nothing really captured my attention enough to make me listen more or again. As has been said in a few of the previous posts, it's the vocalist that puts me off. Perhaps give him a decade of practice, learning, and experience with some of the big names of underground metal and this band might just have something amazing going - I wouldn't count them off as talentless sell-outs too soon.

Yeah, I agree psythe. I dont think that they will become talentless sell outs either. And I have all three CD's too. I like the first two and then on City of Evil there are a few that i like. I just wish it had been like their others. I miss it. *tear* lol. Anywho, I think their best one was Waking the Fallen. My friend like Sounding the Seventh Trumpet. And for rising end-- why do you think that they are on drugs or something like that just because they like a band you don't? Why don't you give us a list of your favorite bands? Well, until next post...

Stef what you need to understand is that fact you are on a METAL UNDERGROUND website and anything to do with A7x is going to get knocked around and name calling is at the top of that list.

You get on here and talk about Papa Roach and Limp Bizkit these are bands you need to find someone where else NOT HERE. You keep talking about people needed to grow up I think you need to head your own advice my dear.

As far as needing God in your life if you need a fake figure to worship good for you but leave the rest of us alone with your religion. Since you are one of "gods children" do you believe in the Easter Bunny as well? I myself don't need a God in my life I am doing just fine without. You don't need a god for happiness it is all how you make your life.

Don't tell me I am mad because I don't get any because that is a lie I have 3 children so I guess I got some somewhere at sometime right?

Unless you have something insightful to say about A7x besides they are "good" quit wasting everyone's time with your nonsense. A7x is not welcome here nor is any type of crappy nu-metal garbage!!! If you don't believe me search through the band names I bet you will find a couple thousand bands you haven't heard one song from.

Your emo nu-metal "junk" is a waste of space and time on this website and needs to be banned!!!! What you need to do is maybe find a good chatroom on AOL where you can find other friends to talk with about Marilyn Manson and Papa Roach and leave "real music to people that know because every band you have listed is trash.

Ah, thats right....my memory is for sh** these days...That "was" some pretty noble sh** on Korns part.

A7X is going to be popular with alot of differnt types of people...Kids who are new to rock/metal, the mall-goths, radio-rock listeners, trendies and those that long for a young Motley Crue...and these guys are it....
You can't get a vocalist that sounds more like Vince Neil without actually putting that chubby has been up there. My hats off to A7X for being bolder than say Nickleback....but you can hardly call them metal..I suppose some can and do.

HAHA!

Bottom line, these guys suck and are not only un-talented by horribly un-original. Good job for dumbing down At The Gates riffs and ripping them off. These f***ing metalcore bands are ruining metal, (well its pretty much ruined already actually). Sitting through a song like Unholy Confessions is like listening to melodic metalcore cliches piled atop each other in a f***ing effigy of all that is pathetic.
