Re: avenged sevenfold
I think they're kind of over-rated. They're definately talented, but I've heard people call thier guitarists the next vai and I laughed. They write some pretty good pop-metal songs, that are fun to sing. They're drummer has some pretty good chops, but it's metal drumming so most of it just sounds like really fast rolls, althought he does have a few cool blurta licks. They have this one song that goes into an acoustic latin jam at the end, I thought that was neat, and at the same time gimmicky. But still fun. They're alright I guess is what I've so elaborately conveyed.
