BC Atlanta Review, "[A7X's] Set Was Easily One Of The Most Impressive Performances I've Seen…"

Blogcritic’s have posted their review of the Atlanta, GA stop on the Rockstar Uproar tour. Check the full thing out here.

The mood completely changed, along with what had, so far, been simple set changes, as Avenged Sevenfold got ready to take the stage. Their set was easily one of the most impressive performances I’ve seen in a very long time. And it was a perfect lead-in for a veteran band like Disturbed. Few bands could have held their own with Disturbed following so closely behind — and few bands would have wanted to follow Avenged Sevenfold’s power-driven performance. For Uproar fans that night there was an intricate, ferocious symmetry to the juxtaposition; they bore one another well.

Avenged Sevenfold paid tribute to their lost brother, Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan and encouraged fans to join them in thanking Mike Portnoy for filling the void on both the album and the tour. Portnoy lately announced that he has left the band he formed 25 years ago, Dream Theater. So far there has been no word on whether he’ll be permanently transitioning into A7X.

My guess? No. I don’t think anyone is ready yet to think about a permanent replacement for The Rev.
