I’m gonna start by saying that I do realize the amount of rage this may spark in fans of the metal genre but here it goes..
I was watching Download Fest 2014 on tv the other day when Avenged Sevenfold came on with their newish song “This Means War.” Knowing that this was a new song, it still felt familiar. Then suddenly, something sparked it.. Metallica’s “Sad But True” started playing in my head and literally synced up with riffs, tempo, and sections (verse, chorus, etc.) You may not agree with me at all but its just one of those things.. Once you hear it, you cannot un-hear it.. Guess the song’s not so new is it, A7X? Give it a listen and see what you think. Subconcious inspiration?
