Huddersfield Daily Review Of Avenged Sevenfold's Leeds Performance.

The Huddersfield Daily have put up their review of Avenged Sevenfold’s Leeds show. Check the entire thing out here.

A7X tapped into their collective grief and laid down their best album to date, the aptly titled Nightmare.

Bursting on stage to the title track frontman M Shadows cuts a confident figure powering out the vocals and feeding energy to the crowd.

But behind him, except for new drummer Mike Portnoy, the other founder members have that vacant look in their eyes like something is missing from their lives.

Not that the music suffered. Synster Gates still has his lead guitar wailing at all the right times and Portnoy’s flamboyant drumming style is something to behold.

In what must now be a nightly speech M Shadows says his piece about The Rev before launching into melancholy tribute So Far Away.

Concentrating on Nightmare and their previous self titled album, the band rip through their one hour set of catchy sing-a-long metal and with the end of the performance in sight the rest of the band finally seem to be enjoying themselves – perhaps betraying their relief that the set is coming to an end.
