Planet-Loud's Download Review, "[Avenged Sevenfold] Are Expert Crowd-Pleasers."

Planet-Loud have put up a review as well as some photos from Avenged Sevenfold’s set at Download 2011.

If Avenged Sevenfold have come here to state a case for headlining in the near future then they make a damn good stab at it: going all out on the production and packing their set with recent, more stadium-friendly material the Orange County fivesome are expert crowd-pleasers, and are unlikely to disappoint many among the black-clad hordes who’ve turned out to support them. Fans who’ve stuck with them from the early days might lament the loss of some of the old grit and the refreshing sense of stylistic fusion present on the earlier records but they’re evolved into a very different band from the Avenged of the ‘Waking The Fallen’ days, and few would begrudge them their success given their numerous setbacks (such as the tragic loss of drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan’, to whom the band touchingly dedicate ‘Afterlife’).
