So i don't wanna be "that Guy". But how is A7X still blacklisted? Like i can get that you would call their first 3 albums metal core (because they are). But there last 4 albums have become gradually less metal core and more metal. Their last 2 albums have zero core influences. Its actually like Trivium. Starting as a metalcore band and then gradually losing that core part of their music. So if they can be in the archives i don't see why A7X (regardless if you like their music or not) Can't.
This isn't meant as a rant or something, i'm just genuinly curious about this.

Avenged Sevenfold are up there with Praying Mantis and System of a Down as one of the most debated exclusions in the history of the site. Simply put, they aren't getting on.

The general verdict is they have some select songs that would 100% get them on if the entire album was along those lines, but none of their albums fit that bill. One or two of the mods who made the decision even like some material by them, so it's not because of a bias against the band or anything like that. They just aren't going to get a spot here.

If you'd used the search function, you would've noticed that ALL their albums have already been judged to death.

The last time we discussed it was here:
viewtopic.php?p=2677631#p2677631

To keep it simple: yes, they do have metal elements and songs, NO they DON'T have a metal ALBUM.

A7X are a hard rock band more than anything. They're kind of a jumble of many different styles, when I used to listen to them I even remember country elements.

Please refrain from posting in these threads just to add your opinions on individual bands. Providing links to specific albums and things like that that you think might be acceptable is fine, but it only serves to mislead people when non-mods chime in like this.

Many people on here seem to agree that A7X are like an Accept clone now or something of the sort. There isn't any justifiable reason to keep them off the site at this point with the existence of their last two full lengths.

*sigh*

As said by Paganius, Avenged Sevenfold have already been discussed to death. Same question, same answer. Continuing to bring up this band will not change our minds. Until they release a new album, nothing more needs to be said.

Unfortunately many people will still posting/necro these threads without even using the search function...

I believe that the giant letters in rules and guidelines are illegible... You should put yellow neon signs instead (?? :P :P

1) Stay on topic
2) Stop it
3) One more post before they release another album and this whole thread gets locked and we'll never look at this band ever again.
