You could probably listen to every single rock band out there, and M. Shadows is definitely up there, he is pretty much a legend at this point. He's trained with Axl Rose's vocal trainer, and is pretty myuch the greatest singer of the modern rock music world. So, "if anyone thinks Shadows is the best vocalist, you know nothing about music"...that is a complete lie. Name some other singers of our age that compare to him. Listen to Tonight The World Dies, he has some of the best singing this world has come to hear. So, think twice before insulting M. Shadows. :)

Revolver mag is only about the highest selling/most popular bands ... why A7X gets this many awards is only because they lost a band member and it's pitty . @ post 11 and 32 M. Shadows may be a voice you like but it does not mean he is in anyway the best and as far as unique go listen to Metallica's Load then pop in your A7X and say it again... It's sad to see so many amazing bands get passed by but unless they are on the charts Revolver doesn't care

Dear Metal Underground posters,
We sincerely apologize. You were right, we were wrong. The bands we nominated were not nearly metal enough. Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden were not actually instrumental to the formation of the genre of heavy metal, they cannot possibly be metal because they don't scream or death growl. Avenged Sevenfold does suck, as it turns out, all they can do is write radio-friendly songs such as the 11-minute "Save Me" or the mainstream pop hit "God Hates Us." To make this up to you, we are going to start from scratch. Instead of the nominees we previously announced, our actual nominees will be Gorgoroth, Behemoth, Burzum, Dark Funeral, and Carpathian Forest. We hope this makes you feel better.
Sincerely,
Revolver Magazine

Dear IrishMetal,
I don't understand why you are ripping on Avenged Sevenfold. They are the only metal band that made it out of the 2000s, and they have influenced countless other younger metal bands and basically enabled the genre to go on instead of dying out. They might not have been extreme enough for you, but if it weren't for them, metal may not have had the legs to make it through, or at the very least would have been solely an underground music scene. M Shadows has an unbelievable voice, you are picking an example from an album where he was coming off of throat surgery, its been 25 years since then and he is considered one of the greatest rock/metal vocalists of all time. Get your sh** straight.
Sincerely,
Metal fan 20 years from now

I think the problem is that there are 2 broad categories here we are dealing with that needs to be enlarged, "Metal" and "Rock" have very different meanings to different people... For the media and award show type stuff, "Rock" is the category for newer bands like Nickelback and older bands like The Rolling Stones and hell even Elvis. Hard Rock bands like Avenged and Disturbed don't fit into the "Rock" category with those bands so they automatically get put in the "Metal" category.

In the end, Metalheads need to realize that metal magazines aren't actually metal magazines and embrace it when a band like Children of Bodom happens to get some attention... And I would also like to note that John 5 is a much better guitarist than his work on Zombies albums show, that guy can shred.

Sorry to say it guys, but most of you hate anything that is popular. No matter what type of music it is, whether its good or bad. If its popular or somewhat slow, it automatically sucks. I dont judge you, just feel sorry for people who dont give some music a chance because its popular or not "metal" enough, or "underground" enough. I dont care if no one liked A7X, I would still listen to them, because I enjoy them. Not because they are metal (which they are not), or because they are the most talented (once again, they are not). I just enjoy all different types of genres and music. Im actually listening to country music right f***en now! Yes I said it!

nah Hoolio, i just don't like sh!t music....popularity has nothing to do with it whatsoever

its nice to see that you accept that Vaggiefold is not metal, and if you like them goofy fvckin poofs, well good fer you, nobody fvckin cares

funny you say you are listening to country, as i've been on the honky tonk pretty much the whole afternoon since checking out XFs croatian metal discoveries....everything from miranda lambert to keith whitley and jamey johnson, and now am on a string of favorites from my mighty Merle

Nope

"No matter what type of music it is, whether its good or bad."

If it's good, we like it.

"If its popular or somewhat slow, it automatically sucks."

SLow songs are awesome

"I dont judge you, just feel sorry for people who dont give some music a chance because its popular or not "metal" enough, or "underground" enough. I dont care if no one liked A7X, I would still listen to them, because I enjoy them."

You like that voice? I find it hard to believe

"Not because they are metal (which they are not), or because they are the most talented (once again, they are not).

Well done, you realized the problems - their image is as a badass metal band, and all their fans hold them up to be so, while it's really boring with a horrible voice driving it. It's not good, and if you read the comments earlier in the thread, you'd be pretty surprised - 46 and 48.

As long as A7X keeps getting the limelight, other good metal bands get very little recognition.

"I just enjoy all different types of genres and music. Im actually listening to country music right f***en now! Yes I said it!"

So do a lot of the MU regulars.


As cynic coughed - strawman is made of straw.

I listen to all types of country HR, from hank to justin moore, from garth to jamey johnson, and most in between. You say bubble gum country pop, and you say you listen to maranda lambert? Irony?

IrishMetal- Who cares what type of limelight they are in? Doesnt affect you much. There are alot of ignorant fans for every band. His voice, I do like his voice, reminds me of old school GNR. Its not the greatest, but far from horrible. I just find it funny that yall get so p***ed because they are popular, maybe its just me. I was just stating my opinion on how it seems you guys view music that is on the radio or popular. I dont listen to radio, so could care less who is on the radio.

Cynic- I have your strawman big boy. Or should I say teenage boy.

Not ripping on you guys, just stating an opinion so no panties in a bunch please!

R Tenney- State my case? I believe I did there bud. I stated my opinion, that everytime a "popular" band has a thread on here, its full of a bunch of "blithering" idiots such as yourself talking sh**. In no way did I insult any of you (except cynic of course). So I dont know what your deal is, I just stated that it gets old reading the same old bashing of bands you dont like, yet your on every thread about them.

Cynic- you make no point, ever. So I wont bother

Hellrat- Maranda Lambert talented? Yes, she is. But so is the other "bubble gum" pop you mentioned. I dont listen to taylor swift, but shes pretty damn talented for her age.
YYou want me to name songs? lol. Do I really need to honestly? Ive been listening to country for about 20 years now partner, so Id say I know my country. Im actually going to see Gary Allen next weekend, off topic but you get my point. I dont need to name songs. And Im pretty sure I know what Im babbling bout.

R Tenney- ok maybe I came off like an a$$ in my popularity argument. Just tired of the same bullsh** talk about every band yall hate. We get it, its cool.

KDogg, you ask what limelight they're stealing?

They're paraded as the forefront of the Metal scene. Even the relatively "tame" bands like Lamb of God would be far more deserving.

It's hard though, because some of the better acts actually prefer their relative anonymity.

Not an easy thing to address from my point of view. But it comes down to A7X not being any way true metal, yet they're being thrust forward as the most prominent example of the genre nowadays.

As for the voice... to each their own lol, but I'll never consider his good.
