avenged sevenfold. now come on people. do you really like this band? they were a joke 5 years ago when they called themselves "heavy fucking metal." now i see kids walking around with "A7X" tattood on their wrist. im sure the album is extremely catchy, buts its not hardrock, its not metal, to steal a quote from lambgoat, its a "fat mall-goth chicks wet dream." sure if you think dudes with make up and tattoos are hot, fine, but that in no way means they make good music.
bleeding through. ive seen these guys tons of times living in the same city as them. heck i even liked their first album, but time after time again they keep putting out the exact same record. and after listening to the "truth," didnt change my mind. except for the singing parts, which just dont make any sence. i read in an interview they now call themselves "black metal"... ya guys go listen to the new naglfar album, its definitly on the same topics as you. and again with the makeup thing, if your gonna do it, do it for reals and just try to be emperor clones, better then just being some sub-par metalcore band.
atreyu. now they havent put out an album in a while. which is a good thing. but a review for it said "hero style guitar shreading"... come on now. listen to the new dragonforce and then see if you think the same. this band has been a joke ever since the drummer started singing. and live? how do people even bare to watch them play? last time i saw them at chain, they played with the crown and darkest hour... atryu got boo'd off the stage.
fall out boy. ya were all signing sugar were goin down swingin. but its the people that say this is the "album of the year." hire a producer who knows how to make cookie cutter songs, and you could be the next fall out boy.
my chemical romance. now all the bands before this some have some musical tallent, some just know how to write catchy songs. my chemical romance just has nothing but an image myspacers eat up. they arent dark. they arent evil. they just blow.
this isnt constuctive. im just bored and pissed at music that trys to live up to better things. if a band is alright, and they know they are alright, then thats cool. but all of these bands have egos like none other, and claim to be a style of music that dont even deserve to belong to.
