Tricia Wright at Technorati has put up an absolutely fantastic 3 1/2 page review of Avenged Sevenfold’s performance at the 2011 Project Cinco Party in Atlanta, GA. Make sure you read the entire thing here and check out some photos as well.
My first experience with Avenged Sevenfold was reviewing their incredible stand-out performance as direct support for Disturbed at Uproar Festival 2010. I had written in that review that it was one of the most impressive performances I had seen in a very long time–needless to say, with Avenged Sevenfold topping the bill, my expectations for this show were decidedly higher than usual. I’m pleased to say that, impossible as I thought it might be, I was more impressed than ever.
And I wasn’t the only one excited for the night’s performance, as the sun descended on Atlanta and the glow of the Nightmare stage set from behind its drop-cloth acted like a beacon, drawing A7X fans into the pit, the feeling of excited anticipation grew. The air was almost vibrating with barely restrained electricity as the curtain dropped and a rush of fog rolled off the stage.
Avenged Sevenfold is a band that consistently delivers an out-standing show, regardless of where they’re playing or who is on the bill with them. And the Nightmare stage set is incredible under a night sky, no matter how far away you are. It’s just mind-blowing.
