While on an episode of Let There Be Talk, John Dolmayan spoke out about the criticism that Avenged Sevenfold receive.
Back to the first interview, Dolmayan also talked about Avenged Sevenfold. When the interviewer said, “I was never a fan of [singer] M. Shadows’ band, there’s something to it, the tunes just don’t grab me.” the drummer replied:
“They get a bad rep – some good music there, I just think, I don’t know why Avenged Sevenfold gets a bad rep. They get killed in the press for some reason.
“And let me tell you, I’ve listened to their records, and you don’t have to like every song, but there are some songs on there that are really beautifully written melodic songs. And the guys in the band, dude, they’re so nice, such good people.”
