Concert Review: Avenged Sevenfold at The LC

by Andy Vogel

It was cold as hell this past Saturday waiting outside The LC in a line that wrapped around the block. There were so many flippin’ people! The show kicked off with bands full of a bunch of Axel Rose wannabes – the kind that just get drunk on stage and have that whole redneck rock bullshit mentality. Yet, it was all worth the wait for Avenged Sevenfold.

You couldn’t see shit because of all the people and you started to smell like shit because of all the people, BUT you could hear A7X rip some remedies and solo faster than a drunken trucker going in circles on 270.

Lead singer M. Shadows looked like a husky man beast. He makes Danzig look like a sissy. The way he puts off his evil smile between screaming is lethally awesome. Even drummer The Rev had a killer voice. He chimed in with roaring support while slamming on his drums – it was pure talent. The guitarists even went bonkers with Synyster Gates soloing every song for about five whole minutes.

The fans were pleased, even though most weren’t able to see jack shit. Everyone sang the words and everyone jumped up and down when hits like “Seize the Day” and “Unholy Confessions” came on.

A7X could be the next Pantera, lets just hope they don’t tour at the Al Rosa.
