This Is Not A Scene's A7X Download Review, "The Stage Show Is Spectacular.."

This Is Not A Scene have put up a small review of Avenged Sevenfold’s set at Download 2011.

The task of following Skunk Anansie on the Main Stage fell to Avenged Sevenfold, a task that they began at one hundred miles an hour and never looked like slowing down. A blistering and fire encased ‘Nightmare’ blew holes into the crowd for an opener. M Shadows did not let up and the combined fretwork acrobatics of Synyster Gates and Zachy Vengeance was nothing short of frightening. ‘Nightmare’ gave way to ‘Critical Acclaim’ and ‘Welcome To The Family’ with the bar raised higher with each track. Shadows has the crowd in the palm of his hand, the stage show is spectacular, the pyrotechnics themselves are worthy of a headline set and would have been even more impressive under the cover of darkness. The crowd hangs on every word, and screams back every lyric, especially with ‘Almost Easy’ and ‘Bat Country’. A7X get a huge crowd seal of approval to the dedication of ‘Afterlife’ to their passed on brother, and the tongue in cheek spiel about not playing ‘God Hates Us’ on a Sunday gives the crowd even more to cheer about. Avenged Sevenfold and their pyrotechnics slayed it, they probably broke the record for the “Boobs On The Big Screen Counter” but you really couldn’t tell as you didn’t want to miss a thing on the stage.
