Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn recently took a shot at Avenged Sevenfold, claiming that the band lifted hooks from prominent metal bands for their 2013 album, 'Hail to the King,' which Flynn also called a "covers album." Now, Machine Head are suggesting that Avenged Sevenfold have stolen something from them, as well.

Day 1 of the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival, featuring Korn, Megadeth and Shinedown, would be a tough act to follow. But leave it to Avenged Sevenfold to lead a Day 2 attack that was nothing short of breathtaking.
Earlier this week, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn slammed Avenged Sevenfold and their new album 'Hail to the King.' Calling 'Hail to the King' a "covers album," Flynn channeled his inner David Letterman to construct a Top 10 list of jokes about Avenged Sevenfold's latest record, in the process accusing A7X of "blatant jackery" of Metallica, Megadeth and Guns N' Roses songs. Having seen the list, Avenged vocalist M. Shadows has offered a retort in Flynn's direction.
Avenged Sevenfold stormed to the top of the Billboard 200 album chart with their latest full-length disc, 'Hail to the King.' The rabid dedication of Avenged Sevenfold fans has shown itself once again, but not everyone is raising their voice to congratulate the hard rock / heavy metal act on their No. 1 album. In fact, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn wrote a lengthy, highly critical and pretty amusing article on Avenged Sevenfold's "blatant jackery" of material from other acts.
To watch Avenged Sevenfold over the years, it's been fairly clear that this is a band with a plan. With each of their first five albums, A7X steadily evolved, albeit in varying degrees. Tragically, their ascension was harrowingly derailed in December 2009 with the death of their drummer, Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.
