Lighters and cell phones filled the sky, as AX7 performed “So Far Away,” telling the crowd that while they still missed “The Rev,” they were ready to move on, continue making music and pleasing fans.
“It’s what ‘The Rev’ would have wanted,” vocalist M. Shadows told the crowd to a roar of applause.
We’re not quite sure what the sound was, but there was a recurring pop in AX7’s set, happening every four songs or so. Having seen them before, we knew it wasn’t an issue with the sound; it was a planned occurrence, but it still made us double-check on their drummer, whom we thought might have exploded. Which would have made sense, given how heavy and non-stop his percussion was.
“The Rev” would have been proud.
Personal Bias: A7X won us over last year, and we were happy to go back for more.
