Well, they rip off everyone else — why not Machine Head?
Machine Head apparently thinks that Avenged Sevenfold copied a stage logo.
“Last night the Blabbermouth.net Facebook posted a side by side photo of Avenged Sevenfold’s new stage set against Machine Head’s 16 year old lion crest,” says a posting on Facebook from the band.
“Unquestionably, lion crests have been around for ages, but there are some uncanny similarities to Machine Head’s distinct lion crest: Lions (with axes), Roman numerals at the bottom, band symbol in the center, and black and white juxtaposition in the center.”
That’s a stretch, Machine Head.
I never am one to defend Avenged Sevenfold, but this time, Machine Head is wrong.
Fuck this shit.
