    avengend Sevenfold é muito foda, sim. Primeiro, quem é roqueiro de verdade não fica falando mal de outras bandas só porque não gosta.Da última vez que contei o número de bandas de rock que ouço era mais de 30 e isso foi a 6 meses, começei a ouvir recentemente A7X e achei uma delicia, é também muita ignorância idiotice desses que se acham roqueiros ficar xingando bandas novas, eu considero essas pessoas uns completos idiotas.Roqueiro de verdade não critica bandas que não gosta !!! em inglês: avengend Sevenfold is very cool, yes. First, who is rocker truth is not badmouthing other bands just because not gosta.Da last count the number of rock bands I hear it was over 30 and it was 6 months, I started listening to recently and found A7X one delights, idiocy is also much ignorance of those who are swearing rockers new bands, I consider these people a full idiotas.Roqueiro really not criticizing bands who do not like! P.S. everything is mistranslated, but there it is.

    Fake metal is just a term metalheads use, like nu metal which is either called 'fake metal' or 'mallcore' it's just nothing more than some closet fanboys who have a hard time dealing with diversity in musical styles such as metal in general. Then again i don't consider nu metal metal or rap. It's a blend between the two, including rock. Calling music fake metal such as nu metal does not eliminate or lessen the metal elements any. Nor does listening to nu metal makes you any less of a metalhead if you are familiar and enjoy some of the history of the style or are generally into metal in general. With that being said A7X's recent stuff to me is more hard rock than metal, though there still might be some elements of metal intact.

    @bobo9390: Please explain to us the difference between fake metal and real metal. I'm very interested to hear your opinions.

    Why don't people take pride in loving fake metal the same way they do in loving real metal? Why is it only acceptable to be proud of enjoying something with more credibility? I guess thinking for yourself is an obsolete concept for some people.

    I think they should bring back "Blinded In Chains" and "Burn It Down" to the set-list.
