An Interview with the Reposted Avenged Sevenfold Fan
Hail to the king of reposted comments!
The Reposted Avenged Sevenfold Fan is a shadowy, anonymous presence who peeks in and out of an article’s Disqus comment sections to deliver a poorly-spelled and perfectly-timed dose of rabid A7X fandom. Often, the reposted comment strikes an unlikely harmony with the topic at hand, borne out of the sheer volume and breadth of discussions found on the band’s YouTube videos. Other times, it’s little more than a random non-sequitur of manic fan worship, but nevertheless allows a unique insight into what A7X fans are willing to divulge about their deepest devotion to the mallcore superstars.
Contrary to what some believe ’round these parts, RA7XF is not a member of the Toilet ov Hell author community. RA7XF occasionally comments here, but can be found on several other websites as well. He or she has existed long before TovH began, and will continue to exist long after TovH ends (just kidding, TovH is eternal and will still be here even after the universe dies a billion-year heat death).
To get some perspective on what continues to drive his or her unequaled love for the guyliner heroes of modern dudebro rock radio, I sent out a few simple interview questions. Here’s what RA7XF had to say, terrible reposted comment grammar and all.
How long have you been a fan of Avenged Sevenfold?

What made you become interested in their music?
let me start off by saying when you started your band i was always listening(to albums and shows not stalking or anything like that) the band every time i got mad or sad i would listen to your musik it helleped me through my life because when you write your songs you dont just write songs you live it and thats what all musick should be like.

How would you characterize their music?
a7x to me is, the eternal heaven my flight, the blood of my heart, is the polar opposite of my pole, the dolphin in my sea… that and MUCH MORE!!!

Have you ever had an opportunity to meet the band?
I celebrated with them last night….really nice guys (thanks for signing my phone Synister ) hmmm #1 album in the country….must say soemthing about their talent! I cannot comprehend why all these people who despise Avenged Sevenfold or even reading their album reviewss. That just seems really immature. If you dont liek a bad, thats fine but then why are you reading reviews on them. And if your reading a areview out of curiosity, is it really neccessary to leave a “shit talking” comment? who cares if you dont like them, no one does. You guys must be attention deprived or something. Anyways, with that being said, I jsut want to congradulate them for having the #1 album in the freakin COUNTRY!!! way to go guys.

What other genres of music do you listen to?
I wanna say brokencyde is the first group I have found that I never ever get tired of listening to(:I never have to chose what kind of music I feel like listening to. I just turn on some brokencyde and it’s the perfect combination of everything.

How would you feel if Avenged Sevenfold permanently broke up?
Avenged Sevenfold is my whole heart and soul. This band is my life, it even got to a point where when my friends asked me what would happen if they ever broke up, and I started crying.

What would you say to someone who doesn’t like Avenged Sevenfold?
YOUR A FUCKIN ASSHOLE, U HAVE NO FUCKING RIGHT TO DISS AVENGED SEVENFOLD LIKE U DID. U FUCKIN PIECE OF SHIT. NOT ONLY 14 YR OLDS LIKE AVENGED, THERE ARE OLDER PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEM AND RESPECT THEM AS A BAND. IF U CANT SEE THEIR TALENT, IM SORRY. YOUR ONE LOW ASS SON OF A BITCH. IF U WENT TO AN AVENGED CONCERT I BET YOUR MIND WOULD FUCKING CHANGE, WAIT A MINUTE WE DONT WANT MOTHERFUCKERS LIKE YOU AT THEIR SHOWS AND EITHER DO THEY, YOUD PROBALLY GET UR ASS KICKED THERE ANYWAYS. SO FUCK YOU AND GO JUMP OFF A CLIFF AND DIE.
Rate your love of Hail to the King on a scale of “1” to “M Shadows.”
I bought the album and I treat it as if it were my baby. :DI listen to it every single day again and again. I even drew the band. I have a poster and I look at it every day. I always wear my t-shirt because I love it so much. My iPod wallpaper, my screensaver and my computer background are photos of the band.
