I don’t think he gets it.
Let me spell it out in black and white, Johnny Christ.
When people compare you to Metallica, that’s mostly because — aside from having a member of the group die suddenly — that’s the band you’ve most ripped off in finding your sound.
It’s not a good thing.
And if you wanna talk output, the comparison’s really bad.
That means you guys will only get worse with time. Saying you are like Metallica is an insult, bra, because you totally bit their style.
Germany’s EMP Rock Invasion spoke with Avenged Sevenfold’s Christ, and he said “We’ve never been shy to admit that Metallica is a huge influence in our lives and on our music. We wrote some songs, like we always do, and we got in there…If we’re compared to Metallica, the greatest metal band in the world, I think that’s actually a pretty damn good compliment.”
But it isn’t.
