I am by no means a big Avenged Sevenfold fan, especially any of their material after their first two albums (though I will admit to owning their first three), but there could definitely be worse bands to play there. Just because you and me wouldn't want them to play there, doesn't mean that every metal fan would have that same opinion. There was plenty of other acts to keep even the most die-hard of metalheads occupied...

Yeah, but you have to admit it is kinda bullshit.

Well, I don't know if I'd go as far as to say it's bullshit, but they certainly wouldn't have ever made my invite list.

Okay, I've just checked the Wacken website. They're not even confirmed, so I don't know where you heard this rumor.

Well Avenged Sevenfold started out as an OK band and turned into one of the shittiest bands on the face of the planet. Id say this is bull shit.

Yeah, sounds shitty to me.

Wacken is a metal event, for metal people! We'll have no trouble here!

Yeah I think what people are forgetting is that Wacken used to be this underground, extreme fest. But its growing steadily more like Ozzfest through the years.

I'd still love to fucking go, Sevenfold or none.

I hope Sevenfold get bottled, tomato'd etc. It'd be fucking sweet if someone threw a bag of horse manure straight at M.Shadow's face... the manure would definitely make his face look better though.

I'm glad for some shit bands. There's nothing worse than having two awesome bands play side by side, as Grave and Primordial did this year. Also, a beer break is always always welcome.

Why stop at bottles, tomatoes and horse manure? Someone should set him on fire! Or run him over! LOL @ ATTACKING BAND MEMBERS BECAUSE WE DISLIKE THEM OR THEIR MUSIC

:roll:

I take it you're not a fan (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). I'm not one either, but is that kind of bullshit really justified?

I'm not a big fan of them, but it's ridiculous how juvenile some of the above posters are acting in response to this. Yeah, a band you guys dislike is playing at an event you like. Big fucking deal. Get over it. Anyways, my post ends there. Time to make like a tree before this thread gets locked.

It's less that they suck and more that they aren't metal. It's even worse considering they are "false metal". A lot of metalheads look at Wacken as a sort of Mecca, and would find the idea of "false metal" infiltrating it quite saddening.

I don't really hate them. But it is kind of fun to attack bands like Avenged Sevenfold, I admit. And no, I won't set him on fire or run him over, that's a bit too extreme :P

It would have been far more awesome if no one turned up to watch them at all. Sounded like a good opportunity to visit the excellent beer tent.

yes, that would be the way to react, i think.

physically attacking/provoking a band during their performance is something i'd expect from a juvenile "false metal" fanbase.

I honestly don't see why this is even an issue. What, you expected an underground black metal fest after bfmv's initial involvement last year? Just spend the time A7X are playing drinking at the beer tents if you don't like them.

I actually liked their first two releases in my immature, confused early metal days. Now its just a waste.

All they'll do is make the good bands sound better. It's like eating nasty doritos, then biting into a delicious juicy burger.

Edit
Actually, 2008 looks like a mess. Hatebreed is showing up. :ugh:

I'm just pleased that AC/DC played Wacken. Wait, did I say AC/DC? I meant Airbourne.

What were the reactions at their 2008 Wacken show and what sort of crowd did they attract?

Also, Hatebreed puts on a good show. I saw them at a Canadian metalfest and was suspicious of their inclusion at first but ultimately I'm glad they were on the bill.

It's not too big a deal. Avenged Sevenfold tried to ruin my night when I saw Iron Maiden this year, but I just went and got some fuckin chips while their set was on. :lol:

My friends and I have a common expression; "I think I just died and went to Wacken!" because for us it's that unreachable.
We don't picture a band like Avenged Sevenfold when thinking of Wacken.

Looks like this year you should be changing it to "I think I just died and went to Maryland!"

Even though there was a lot of people supporting Avenged Sevenfold they did get plenty of yelling: "Maiden! Maiden!" And actually, the vocalist had to mention Iron Maiden at least 3 times between song and song, stuff like: "Iron Madien are such cool people, we are happy to be touring with them", "yeah, we will let you with fuckin Iron allmighty Maiden", and even "Dont worry guys, we will be back soon in our own tour for you". stuff like that

Instead of complaining about shitty bands, think of it this way; The more that these shitty, watered-down bands gain popularity with the kiddies, the more TRUE metal fans appreciate the good bands and don't waste their time complaining about the shit bands.

If you don't like a band at a festival no one is making you watch them.

They are going to open to Maiden in February here.
I really don't mind them, although most of their work is not so good. However, I enjoyed City Of Evil a lot, which I think it is a good album.

There is a ton of bands playing at Wacken, why bother complaining about Avenged Sevenfold?

Personally, I think they don't belong there. I mean come on. It's a metal festival. For METAL bands.

Wacken is becoming increasingly commercial. Go to Headbangers Open Air or Keep It True if you like metal.

I'd rather watch Avenged Sevenfold than Hatebreed, At least they can be catchy and have solo's.

I'd choose Hatebreed over Avenged Sevenfold anyday. At least with Hatebreed you get some heartfelt brutality and violence. Avenged Sevenfold don't even stir an emotion if i'm honest! Well maybe contempt.

Hatebreed is preferable to A7X, but only in the same way that dogshit is preferable to cyanide pills.
