See you can say all that because you love them, but really they arn't that special. Not to say they didn't work hard to get were they are, because they did. But i can leave them and never look back. There are bands that can outplay, out write, out preform them. See Dillinger Escape Plan. A7F can't hold a birthday candle to them.
Not to say don't enjoy them, but don't be surprised if metal fans don't really give a shit and write them off.
