Metal Injection has posted their review of “The Stage” calling it a masterpiece and giving it a score of 10/10.
The Stage is a masterpiece (yeah I said it). Call Avenged Sevenfold too mainstream if you want, but when musicians bust their ass and make incredible music, credit is due. With its brilliant composition, vast and strong collection of sounds, this is the Avenged Sevenfold record that shines the brightest amongst the stars. The Stage isn’t just a great step up from their previous work, but an outstanding addition to the halls of metal and rock that will forever be remembered.
