Metal Hammer Podcast, "A7X Are The Premier Band.. Will Blow SOAD Off The Stage."

Gill & Beez at Metal Hammer have just put up their Download 2011 Preview podcast (46:00-48:00 for A7X) where they go through all the bands playing Download Festival and give their opinions on who you should see, who you shouldn’t and more. Beez had nothing but great things to say about the band and I typed it up below for y’all to read:

BEEZ (on A7X): “They are the band that are ready to step into that time slot. I’ve got to see it, just to see are they ready? Are they fucking ready for that step? Of all of the bands, Bullet included, all of those bands of the current crop that when we talk about taking that step up. Like Slipknot have in recent years, like Rammstein have in recent years, Avenged Sevenfold are the premier band. They are top of that league. They aint waiting to burst through, they burst through already. They are ready. And the shows with Mike Portnoy, like especially the first half of it was like take-your-fucking-eyebrows-off. Avenged Sevenfold are a band, those boys in that band, understand the importance of turning up to somewhere like Donington. Hello to metals spiritual home in the fucking world… I can’t wait to see, again they’ve got an hour and fifteen minutes, so that’s a headline set for Avenged Sevenfold and do you know since “Waking The Fallen” they’ve come up with at least two or three songs per record that are like stonewall classics. I think, here’s prediction time, I think Avenged Sevenfold will blow System Of A Down off the stage, fucking period. Not even close, I think it’s going to be brutal. It’s gonna be Shadows taking a baseball bat to what was System Of A Down.
