The Musical Box's Nightmare After Christmas Lexington, KY Review.

The Musical Box have put up their review of Avenged Sevenfold’s set on the “Nightmare After Christmas” tour in Lexington, KY. Read the full thing here.

As the music box-style intro to the show-opening Nightmare (the title tune to the A7X’s fifth and newest album) commenced, a stuntman (well, let’s hope it was a stuntman) stood atop the light rigging perched over a stage made to resemble a graveyard. After slipping a makeshift noose around his neck, he leapt into in the air and was left, literally, hanging as A7X lets loose with Nightmare’s near operatic mix of banshee vocals, pop-metal melodies and twin guitar leads. Around this dark carnival shot enough flames and pyrotechnics to put the Trans Siberian Orchestra to shame.
