Feel The Noise have put up their review of Avenged Sevenfold’s show in Madrid, Spain.
Under the hot as hell streets of Carabanchel, the crowd lined up to see Shadows and company, just months after Barcelona. If Avenged Sevenfold were already a large group, the fact that they released a new album which is quite remarkable after the death of their charismatic drummer “The Rev” have given wings to further the band.
Those who have nothing to prove to anyone are Avenged Sevenfold. It was quarter past ten at night, with some delay, when they left the stage ready to give everything. We came prepared to see not only a good metal concert but also a great show and they did not disappoint. It was commented that a delay on a plane left them with almost no time to get to Madrid.
Shadows, Synyster Gates, Zacky Vengeance, and Johnny Christ were there. Them and their technical team developed a good show full of fire and pyrotechnics, well made and according to the occasion, which made it even more intense than a hour and a half concert. We stayed with them and their music. “Nightmare,” “Critical Acclaim,” “Welcome to the Family,” “Almost Easy” and “Buried Alive” to begin with almost anything given Vistalegre Madrid, jumping on the front lines and in the nearly full stands. Perhaps a pity the sound was not as good as it should have been, making the voice of Shadows, and above all the choirs sometimes sounded wrong.
A flag of Spain dedicated to the group and another flag, this with the face and the name of “The Rev” calling his memory decorated the set in what would be one of the most emotional moments of the concert, the theme of the last album dedicated to their partner and friend who is no longer with them. Impressive to hear “So Far Away” live.
Impressive was also going to be all that lay ahead because the topics did not stop. “Afterlife,” “God Hates Us” and “Bat Country” were what seemed to end this great concert. But.. we all knew that it had not. They turned and organized a large circle pit. “Unholy Confessions” was the first encore and a third outlet on stage turned into the finish of the show with “Save Me.”
Good show, better sound, great band. We are left with the words of the singer, “We will be back soon.”
Thanks Rene for sending this in.
