Examiner Los Angeles Irvine Review, "[A7X] Delivered On All Fronts And Gave The Performance Of The Night."

The Examiner Los Angeles have posted their review of Avenged Sevenfold’s set in Irvine, CA on the Rockstar Uproar tour. Check out the entire thing here.

This band has somehow hit a sweet spot in modern metal, without a screaming front man or follow-able guitar parts, and the death of the band’s drummer during this peak has caused an explosion in devotion. Add in ex-Dream Theater Mike Portnoy on drums and a witch’s brew of talent and sonic fury. The Huntington Beach bad boys played in front of a near-hometown crowd and the number of Avenged t-shirts outnumbered every other band 10-to-1. The show started on an odd note, with a noose hoisting a random man hung from the top of the stage. With the recent passing of their drummer, James “The Rev” Sullivan and Slipknot’s bassist, Paul “The Pig” Grey, this touch felt uncomfortable and illogical. Still, the band delivered on all fronts and gave the performance of the night, highlit by an uncanny energy and quarterbacking ability of Portnoy, who was given the space and time to deliver his veteran touch to the younger band.
