NME Gives "The Stage" 4/5 Stars. - Avenged Sevenfold

NME Gives “The Stage” 4/5 Stars.

NME has reviewed “The Stage” and give it 4/5 stars.

Avenged have uncharacteristically thrown everything up in the air with this record – from recruiting former Bad Religion drummer Brooks Wackerman to streaming an ambitious 360 degree/3D/virtual reality gig via mysterious ‘deathbats’ (the bands logo) appearing on key landmarks across the globe. As the album’s swan song ‘Exist’ closes with a monologue from astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, it’s evident the band have begun a new chapter where they appreciate rather than become their influences. They’ve truly 
arrived.
