Machine Head's Robb Flynn talks about his criticism on Avenged Sevenfold

Machine Head's Robb Flynn spoke again about Avenged Sevenfold and Hail To The King in a recently interview with Metal Hammer, below you can read some excerpt:


"Oh man, I just feel that bands should be accountable to each other and if someone's not pulling their weight, say it! What's wrong with that? It's not out of hatred. It's out of love! Try harder, motherfucker!"

"Sometimes I think, 'Should I even put this out? Am I just adding to the chatter of the world? Who the fuck would read this?' But I just feel like doing it and I enjoy it. I get a high from it. It's a way to connect and I guess it's for the same reason that I make music and play in a band to feel connected. Most of the time, the majority of reactions I get aren't negative, they're super-positive and people thank me for saying that shit. And that means a lot to me."

In his blog, Robb Flynn said that he was just having some fun with Avenged Sevenfold in his critique, saying he was "happy" for the band's success and adding, "While I like the new record, and really dug the last record 'Nightmare'... It's time to poke a little fun at A7X."
