Nobody gets as big as Avenged Sevenfold without making enemies. Already past eight million album sales, Southern California’s metal princelings are not yet in the Metallica or Limp Bizkit league, but have a strong claim to being the biggest American hard rock band of the 21st century. Commercial success has inevitably brought accusations of betraying their metalcore origins, careerism and bandwagon jumping. And it’s fair to say singer M. Shadow and cohorts have yet to find a unique voice while cherry-picking from nu-metal, thrash, hardcore, goth rock and even emo.
