OC Register's Soundcheck Posts Review & Photos From Avenged Sevenfold's Ontario, CA Show.

The Soundcheck portion of the OC Register have put up their review and photos from Avenged Sevenfold’s last show on the “Buried Alive” tour in Ontario, CA.

Taking a cue straight out of the Iron Maiden playbook, A7X’s stage setup included a ginormous skull with bat wings (the band’s logo) that ran the length of the stage – highly reminiscent of how Maiden often employs its skeletal mascot Eddie. Avenged’s design spewed out huge bursts of fire, while at other times the entire line atop the wings would be lit up. It was seriously face-melting, as pyro-driven as any recent Metallica arena show, where timing and positioning are everything, lest someone end up roasted.

Shadows even joked about that, as he called up one fan from Sweden: “If you burn yourself, it’s not our (bleepin’) fault.” (Thankfully, she made it out alive.)
