Machine Head: "Did Avenged Sevenfold copy our logo?"

10/4/2013 11:45:35 AM PT   comments [20]

Machine Head apparently believes that Avenged Sevenfold copied their logo. The band had the following to say under a Facebook post titled "Did Avenged Sevenfold Copy Machine Head's 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. 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
- Black and white juxtaposition in the center

Avenged Sevenfold and Machine Head logo comparison

I'm inclined to file this in our "Who gives a shit?" bin, but maybe I'm just blind to the overwhelming similarities?!

Ok congrats, Machine Head. You were generic and unoriginal FIRST. That make you idiots feel better?

I'm not surprised. A7X stole Overkill's skull with bat wings character as well.

Yeah talk about having no remorse they ripped off two bands (Overkill and MH) in one artwork! I'm sure they stole the black and white from a black metal band or something!

Like this type of logo hasn't been used a thousand times. MH is a bunch of fcking morons.

Next they will be upset that A7X stole their idea to use dummy cabs.
