According to the web site of The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, AVENGED SEVENFOLD will be joining SYSTEM OF A DOWN, HATEBREED and BAD ACID TRIP for an Ozzfest "off date" on July 12 at The Woodlands, Texas venue.

Although AVENGED SEVENFOLD have not yet been officially confirmed for this year's Ozzfest, they are widely expected to be announced on May 23 as the tour's main-stage "mystery band."

AVENGED SEVENFOLD are currently finishing up a co-headlining U.S. tour with COHEED AND CAMBRIA. The trek is scheduled to wrap up this Saturday (May 20) in New York City.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD are supporting their 2005 album, "City of Evil", and current single, "Beast and the Harlot". The group next heads overseas for some European festivals.

for all you f***in sh** talkers out there! i read alot of you peices of garbage talkin sh** about a7x.
well i seen them in detroit and they did a pantera cover and it sounded just like them. i think there a alot more talented then most bands out there.
my personal opinion, they play a more badass show then any of they gay a$$ gothic, slipknot/ lamb of god f*** ups you guys call "music". i bet any of you sh** talkers wouldn't have the balls to say all of this to there face. because all of you guys are nothin but p***ies, get behind your computers, and beat off to porn!

well avenged sevenfold fan forever, what ever your name is, avenged sevenfold was an amazing band at ONE POINT IN TIME, if your trying to say there new music is good, then you must be brain dead, i mean this music is laughable, who the f*** do they think they are guns n roses? well they f***in suck too. This is prolbably the biggest sellout band i have ever encountered in my life. they go from this unbelievably heavy and orginal sound to this f***in glam metal suck a$$ sh**. City of Evil is by far the worst album of 2005. I honestly cant believe people other than 14 yr old girls listen to this. Also, i am not a big slipknot fan, but i know for a fact that they put on a way better show than avenged sevenfold, and yes i have seen avenged sevenfold before. Another thing, i dont sh** talk unless it is ment to be and im sure alot more people will back me up than you.

I agree with realmetal4life. On the other hand I am a Slipknot fan, except for some of the new sh** but I don't care I can deal with it. Unfortunately I have seen A7X live and there live shows are nothing special. A lot of local bands I've had the privilage to share the stage with have put on WAY better shows! So shove your BS up your ass. All they did was walk around on stage. Is that anything special? NO!!! This band sucks. Anyway, I have seen them and I know they're nothing special. Maybe you should go to a concert that has other then p***y bands. And you should also learn how to spell. Thats a nice name for yourself, you didn't even spell the sh**ty bands name right. lol JUST GROW UP AND GO TO A REAL CONCERT!!! and go back to school!!!

How in the hell in Lamb of God emo? You should be gagged, rapped, and shot for that! I've seen SlipKnoT and Lamb of God, and let me tell you they put on some sick shows. I haven't seen A7X, but I really don't want to with this new 'sell-out' album. It's just crappy metal for people who want to say they listen to metal. Grow up and learn music so you can see that they are nothing new! Wake the Fallen was an awesome album, but City of Evil is A7X's St.Anger

To avenged sevonfol fan fays f u c k all haters:

1) I agree with Opeth Suck!!...Post # 1 needs to go back to school and learn some grammar/spellling...'cause right now it looks like you take it up the a$$ while you write/type. It might help to get your point across if you organize your thoughts better and spell your words correctly.

2) I find it quite interesting that you use the term "gay a$$ gothic," and you're not referring to Avenged Sevenfold. Out the three bands you listed, Avenged Sevenfold is the only goth-type band. Way to not contradict yourself!

3) Funny how you said Avenged Sevenfold have more talent than any other band after you mentioned that they played a Pantera cover in Detroit. When I think of band that has more talent than any other band, I usually think of bands that come up with ORIGINAL material. Original material that doesn't suck my scrotum. YES, Pantera is f***ing badass. NO, Avenged Sevenfold is not.

4) There is absolutely nothing wrong with jerking off to porn! Unless it's gay porn. I think I speak for most of the people on this forum (except the A7X guy) when I say we watch pornos of man on woman and woman on woman action.

5) What about the female population of the world that talks sh** about A7X?

6) As for Lamb of God and Slipknot being f*** ups...I guess if you define a "f***-up" band as a group of guys (or girls, or a mix) who are signed to a major label, have armies of fiercely loyal fans, and act on their own beliefs, then yes, Lamb of God and Slipknot are f***-ups.

7) I have not seen Avenged Sevenfold live in person, but to be fair, I looked at multiple live videos on YouTube. It is nothing special, and I have seen bands that really throw themselves into their performances. You can literally say Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) throws himself into the performance. He throws himself into the crowd. A great live show involves the band physically abusing themselves. I do not see Avenged Sevenfold doing this. They f***ing prance around the stage. I don't think A7X could bring the crowd to such a point where they'd take part in the Wall of Death, seeing as most A7X fans are under the age of 16.

8) I'll admit, I did think Avenged Sevenfold had a few catchy songs. Then I gave more bands a listen. And the more metal-core I listened to, the more Avenged Sevenfold started to sound less and less unique. Most metal-core today sounds the same as everything else around it. There are exceptions of course.

it aggrivates me because i was a huge fan of avenged sevenfolds old stuff, waking the fallen, and sounding the seventh trumpet were both great albums, but when city of evil came out, all these kids started acting like they were badass hardcore metal fans because they listened to them, and it aggrivates the f*** out of me because of how much softer it is.

To avenged sevonfold says f u c k all haters:

Try and read all of this, if your limited, mentally defective brain power allows.

I am writing this on my own accord, for my love of real heavy metal. No one asked me or pushed me to write this, and there’s no f***ing way you can say otherwise.

I don’t really like Korn. I love Slipknot, and many heavier bands. Check out the list a little ways down for real heavy sh**.

Tell me, because I'd really like to know..what bands are jealous of Avenged Sevenfold? And don't f***ing say Slipknot and Lamb of God. I've done my reading and research, read/watched/listened to multiple interviews. I have never seen, heard, or read any of the members of Slipknot or Lamb of God wishing they had what Avenged Sevenfold has. Lamb of God and Slipknot have been around longer than Avenged Sevenfold. They have more experience, and they're content with that experience. And you seem to forget Slipknot and Lamb of God toured arenas across the USA last year, selling out many of the arenas:

‘"It's really turned into something massive," Adler said, noting that originally the tour was discussed for large clubs, but once promoters started to gauge interest, some 10,000- to 20,000-seat arenas were booked.’

If you had gone to that tour like I had, you would have seen the massive amounts of people in the arenas. You might call it some sold out shows.

Or maybe there are other bands you're talking about? Are there? Honestly, who the f*** is jealous of A7X?

Everybody f***s up live shows, whether it's on a miniscule scale, or just a joke (i.e. an Avenged Sevenfold live show). And don’t f***ing say Avenged Sevenfold puts on a better live show than Slipknot or Lamb of God. As I said before those guys really get involved with the crowd…they literally get into the crowd, and you can see the crowds and the bands feeding off the energy they give each other.


If you don't care what any of us retards say, then how come you were the first person to post on this message board? Yeah..you definitely don't care. f***ing idiot.

“and it's funny that all you losers are on an avenges sevonfold page talkin sh**.”
YOU BROUGHT IT ON YOURSELF YOU STUPID C U N T!!! DID YOU NOT NOTICE YOU WERE THE FIRST COMMENT? When someone as f***ing stupid as you comes on a metal website talking sh** about bands that are truly metal, the sh** will hit the fan. I enjoy it too. We care about the TRUE metal bands you’re ragging on, not this horse sh** known as A7X.

Here’s a list of bands that would f*** Avenged Sevenfold up the ass, any day:
-Strapping Young Lad (I’d f***ing love to see the Rev [I do know the band members’ names c***sucker] go up against Gene f***in’ Hoglan!!)
-Behemoth
-Children of Bodom (Alexi always has that scream that’s borderline death metal, but not quite there…just f***ing awesome.)
-Dimmu Borgir (clean, operatic vocals along with Shagrath’s death metal growl)
-Killswitch Engage
-DevilDriver (some clean vocals on Fury of Our Maker’s Hand..but I’ll take Dez’s screaming any day over M Shadows)
-Nevermore (awesome mix of clean and rough vocals)
-Unearth
-Mastodon
-Trivium (clean vocals as well as screams, and Matthew Charles Sanders can’t sing, scream and shred at the same goddamn time)
-Fear Factory (clean vocals as well as constipation!!)
-Opeth (ridiculous technical talent..and Mikael Akerfeldt can switch from a monstrous death metal growl to soft, clean vocals in an instant)

So I do in fact enjoy music that doesn’t always make use of screaming vocals.

No one is claiming to be a know it all. It just seems like we are because we’re the ones using logic here, and whenever we say something that either doesn’t make sense to you, or you disagree, we become know it alls. And learning how to put together a sentence might make you seem a little less retarded when you rant and rave. It’s true you can’t spell though. I’ll stop sh**ting on you for horrendous spelling when you learn how to put together a decent sentence. I think it’s pretty funny that you don’t even bother to spell your favorite band’s name right half the time.

And where the f*** did that versatile sh** come from? No one said anything about anybody being or not being versatile. What you saw in Detroit has nothing to do with the word versatile. You definitely didn’t prove anybody wrong on anything. The only thing you proved was that you can go off on a meaningless tangent.

No talent definitely got Slipknot a few platinum selling albums. No talent definitely got Lamb of God the freedom to do what they want on a major label. As for sh**ty guitar lines, there’s the idiot within getting a hold of you. Slipknot don’t really sound like anybody else. The same can be said for Lamb of God. I don’t always define good riffs or guitar lines by how technically challenging they are. I listen for riffs that are memorable…something that isn’t going to leave me after a day. As I said before, Avenged Sevenfold does not sound like anything special. They don’t defy any genres, and they certainly have pioneered any new ones. I don’t see Avenged Sevenfold being pegged as the masters of American metal. Meanwhile, Lamb of God and Slipknot are getting plenty of that credit. They deserve it.

As for the fight scene in Killadelphia between Mark and Randy…I don’t believe M Shadows, or anybody in Avenged Sevenfold would have the f***ing balls to put together a DVD as personal as Killadelphia. I suppose you could throw a beating when you’re as f***ed up as Blythe was? You’re all talk and you f***ing know it.

You should post some of your supposedly musical/metal farts on myspace, so we can hear just how much better than Lamb of God you are.

Half of the people on this website aren’t kids. And we listen to real metal. No p***ies here either. We aren’t stupid, brain dead, dumb asses, smelly or retarded…Guess who is….Think real hard.

I JUST PROVED YOU WRONG YOU sh** SUCKING DOG f***ER!!

To in-luv_wit_m_shadows:
I have the power to take you down, you stupid twat.
M. Shadows is a f***ing p***y. Randy Blythe from Lamb of God has been screaming for over a decade. I don’t see him wearing down. There are tons of other bands who have been screaming for longer than A7X have been around. Dez Fafara has been screaming for over a decade. Corey Taylor has been screaming for over a decade. Lou Koller has been screaming for 20 years. These guys know how to regulate their voices. Some of them have even taken vocal training. I don’t see any of these guys letting up on their screaming as M Shadows has done.

corey taylor doesnt scream. i just figured i'd put that out there for whoever it was that said that you cant understand slipknot because all they do is scream. you can understand everything that he says in his music so using him as an example of bands that scream and you cant understand was a very bad example.

To post 48:
My actual (last name) is Rue, as you may have guess. I only post under the name Rue on metalunderground, and that's the only name I've ever posted under. Post number one is not me, I can guarantee you that. I never said I agreed with post #1, anywhere. I very rarely talk to myself, especially on the internet.

To post 46:

That post took about 10 minutes out of my life. So I'm a metal nerd because I throw some long posts out there, defending the music I enjoy? There's nothing wrong with making some smart comments either. Post #1 had it coming. I can you see you classifying Killswtich Engage as screamo, but none of the other bands come close to that genre. Strapping Young Lad, Behemoth, and Dimmu Borgir, SCREAMO? Since when the f*** did death metal and norwegian black metal qualify as screamo?

All the bands listed could easily wipe A7X's a$$ all over the place.

And how have Avenged Sevenfold proven themselves?

Post 47- I was talking about Corey Taylor screaming, but I never said anything like you can't understand Slipknot. On the first two Slipknot albums, there are definite screaming songs, along with the clean vocals. Subliminal Verses....mostly sung.

Three fans on stage. You should check out the video of Nevermore live at New England Metal and Hardcore Fest 2003. The stage is literally filled with fans (a bit more than 3). It's not that big an accomplishment for A7X to bring three whole fans on stage.

So talking sh** about A7X is lame...and talking sh** about my mother and who f***ed her is definitely not. If sh** talking is so lame, then how come A7X did so much of it?

to KSE KICKS ASS- I'm a big fan of Killswitch. I was trying to look at things from Post 46's distorted point of view. Personally, I don't consider Killswitch screamo, but metalcore.

you just said you like a worse band than slipknot and lamb of god. you just keep naming sh**ty bands. and to that one comment,sayin that a7x plays to a tape? your just lying so that you can make them sound bad. these guys bring back the 80's in a big way. so sreaming is a better technique than actually singing? i'm sorry but alot of you mother f***ers have really really bad taste in music a7x could do a slipknot cover and do it better. i play guitar slipknot is easy to play.
a7x is hard as f***. if you can create music like that? then why they suck?this is the final thing i am going to say so read carefully

If you think A7X can outplay Slayer, Judas Priest, Anthrax, Behemoth, Strapping Young Lad, Nile, Fear Factory, and Opeth (to name a few that would rape A7X)....then you should be shot and tortured. A7X would probably list Slayer, Judas Priest and Anthrax among the bands they highly respect. These bands really started something. They've definitely got more fans than A7X, along with the respect of the true metal community. And the solos in Angel of Death and Raining Blood sh** on anything A7X has put on from great heights. You can't deny that.

a7x sounds like no other band they have there own unique stle and they can actually sing and scream. i'll admit, in vermillion pt 2, corey can sing real good. but after this, one of you are just gonna talk more sh** and worship crappy bands

To Korndogg:

Slayer is going to release a new album this year. Judas Priest released a new record last year, and they're working on another one. Anthrax was popular in the 80s...and they've been playing a lot of sold out shows recentlt, as rulin rightly pointed out. It's impossible not to call it modern metal.

If you knew something about death metal, a really heavy type of music you're probably not familiar with, then you'd know Nile is popular with people other than myself. M Shadows couldn't even touch Karl Sanders...who can scream and shred at the same time. Another thing...I don't measure the quality of the bands I listen to by how many stadiums/arenas they sell out, or how many records they sell. And more bones would be broken in an Anthrax pit than a Korn hip hop dance off. Real metal is rougher.

Your description of me couldn't be farther from the truth...I like loose fitting clothes.

To A7x fan says f u c k all haters:

I gave Avenged Sevenfold a chance, multiple times. Nothing stands out (except the lack of talent). They are not unique.

I wouldn't be calling me the stupid, immature, gay, retarded one, being that YOU were the first one to post on this article. You brought this sh** talking on yourself. IT'S YOUR FAULT you have to deal with this sh**. And you're mad because we're sh**ting on A7X...again...IT'S YOUR f***ING FAULT. You sh** on the real metal bands we like, and you expect nothing in return? What world are you living in? f***ing hypocrite. If you're going to try and deny that...then you are truly f***ing braindead. Your comebacks always consist of calling me gay, stupid, retarded, or some other lame sh**. Is that all you plan on doing? Another thing...I listen to band that have really contributed something to the metal community..what have Avenged Sevenfold done for metal? Selling lots of records and making 14 year old girlies wet themselves aren't the greatest accomplishments.

And what "metal" do you like?

To both of you f***s:

Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Anthrax and Metallica are all bands that came before Avenged Sevenfold. Without them...there wouldn't be an A7X...or a Korn. You sh** on those bands, you sh** on the roots of A7X and Korn.

i'm a fan of Priest, Maiden, Anthrax, Testament, Slayer, Metallica (old), Nile (Egyptian Death Metal, fyi), etc.

I'm also a fan of Incubus, Cold, Mudvayne, and yes, of Korn. Old Korn. They'r two first albums were great. But nowadays, they'r just another bltch for the radio. Same as Mudvayne, same as Incubus, same as all pop music.

and yes - i'm also a fan of the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Not to mention the Beach Boys, Miles Davis, the Blues Brothers, etc etc etc.

being thus a fan of all these types/styles/genres/etc of music, i think i can safely say you'r wrong. and guess what? I even don't mind a bit of Avenged Sevenfold every now and then (though I wish they had a better vocalist and didn't do the emo look thing). you'r still wrong. live with it, deal with it, cry about it, whatever, i dont care; just admit it. you'r only lying to yourself if you don't.

A7X is not talented at all in comparison to so many better bands. There is no redeeming value in their music. And yes, I'm referring to their older work as well. There are even innumerable beter metalcore bands out there, and metalcore is the worst sub-genre of metal. The singing is atrocious, as are the harsh vocals, just plain geigh. The guitar is simplistic and untalented, which is just simple fact. fa**ot kids that listen to bands like A7X and Atreyu think they are so hardcore, and it is hilarious yet revolting at the same time.

And by the way, those of you referring to Slayer and Pantera as top tier metal bands are just as geigh as A7X fans. Get a clue. Slayer is nothing but speed and a gimmick. No songwriting abilities whatsoever. They are simply a slightly more heterosexual version of Dragon Force. They play sloppily and their solos are technically inferior and uninspired. And as far as Pantera goes, simply put, Dimebag is overrated. They had some decent songs though, i will admit, mainly off of Vulgar Display and Cowboys From Hell.

hey, i think all you A7X haters out there need to shut the hell up, and get over it, if you hate them soo much why are you wasting your time explaing to us how mcuh of a "p***y band" they are....jesus f***ing christ, but i do agree with some of you i also went to detriot and saw them, they could get more into there music but, they do work their asses off, and i also agree about the city of evil, like when bat county came out all these stupid a$$ preps and sh** think they are so f***ing awesome cause they listen to A7X well f*** them, Waking the fallen and all their other CDs i must say were better then city of evil, i was quite dissapointed in their new one, but theirs nothin we can do about it....for all you f***ERS who think they arnt metal actually try listening to some of their songs for a change, for example We Come out at Night, or I wont see you tonite part 2...only part two though...so dont even try to tell us A7X fans they arnt f***ing metal!!...it pisses the f*** outta me...so i hope you all can understand that just because we can understand what the band is saying doesnt mean its not good music, i mean i like trivium, and atreyu, and all those kinda bands...but i think death metal is f***ing stupid as hell, at least avenged has a point to their songs unlike gay deap scream...roaring or what ever the hell they do...thats not f***ing MUSIC!!!!!!so shove that all up your A7X hating asses!!!

Avenged Sevenfold sucks! Just so you all know, they ARE NOT, I repeat, ARE NOT a metal band. They are just a Christian band and Christian bands suck. If they weren't a Christian band and would not sing songs about Jesus and what not, they could be better. If you don't believe me about the whole Christian band thing, check your source who told you they were not and check the book of Revelations.

To he who downed death metal for not having a "point". It is simply too complex for you to wrap your gay litlle mind around, obviously. I mean Christ, you listed Atreyu and Trivium as bands you like also, get a clue.

i can name 4 metalcore bands that can blow those transvestites
away in a new york minute. Sinai Beach, The Zimmerman Note,
Despised Icon and God Forbid have more talent on their fingertips than these glammy goons.

Rue: Wow, you really said everything just.. wow. *applause*

And about the "We come out at night" thing - that's hilarious.

Personally though, I love listening to them. I don't consider them "metal" or anything, becuase after City of Evil came out - they just went... *splat*. I love the guitar in all their music though, so that's the only reason why I listen to them so much. I appriciate the music they play. I guess you could call their first 2 albums, maybe just their first metal. But that's probably it. Then again, I could care less about what they are. If they sound any good, I'll listen to it.

Yes, it's really sad that M.Shadows lost his voice - they haven't been around for THAT long. When I say sad though, I mean in the pitiful way, not the "omgtheystillrockhe'sbeenscreamingforsolong" way. I still think that they sound great minus the screamo : but if they're going to label themselves as a metalcore band or anything in that general area.. no. I'm not the kind of person that only listens to their favorite band, yeah they're my favorite. But I'm not going to defend them and say "screw all you haters out there, they're the best band ever"; whatever you guys have to say is what you believe and yeah. I don't exactly believe they really sold out, because they haven't really done that much for the money, correct me if I'm wrong 'cause I'm not all that sure. >;<;; But just because they became less heavy, I don't say they're sell outs, but I still do believe that the band considers themselves "metal", which is not what they should think of themselves as. Just the general rock area is my genre for them, I guess. To be honest, I've never really listened to.. metal. I barely know metal bands, and if I do know them, I've only heard one song. Sad, I know.

About their concerts - Yes, they don't put on that great of a performance. But I don't mind if a band puts on a good performance, doing extras and whatnot - as long as they play. It IS a plus though. I guess I'm just odd like that.
