Ok now i've been reading and to be honest to those who are not liking trivium now cuz of the crusade don't freak out and say that they are wrong. Are you the one who's holding the guitar, or has to sing weither screaming or what not in front of not 100 but 1000's of people for your day to day job? And how many of you actually play an instrument that bash these bands? if you don't have musical knowledge of any degree then you need to simply keep your opinion to yourself. Simply this if your not a musician than you don't rate to critisize a musician.
My point is if Learn some music theory and learn how the natural instruments are played their limits to arrange and compose for an orchestra, then attempt to write an orchestra piece, and learn the guitar, bass, drums, and vocals and record your own music. When you've done this then we can talk about a band sucking when you realize how much effort and hard work into writting music takes. They get paid to create music. So thats what they are doing so quit sounding like a bunch of complaining vally girls when you break a nail. If you are a true fan of metal you like all forms of metal such as traditional metal, progressive rock/metal, alternitive rock/metal, power metal, black metal, death metal, melodic death metal, industrial metal, metalcore, thrash, hardcore and the many other countless sub genres or rather styles that metal has other than the main styles. If you don't like all the metal then some metal head you are huh? end of story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
