Charmaine de Castro at the The Philippine Star has written an article on Avenged Sevenfold pre-the bands show in Manila on April 26th.

MANILA, Philippines – I was introduced to Avenged Sevenfold years back after a friend suggested that I check out the V formation guitar duels of Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance. I remember him saying I would enjoy it immensely. He was right. Good and talented guitar tandems are hard to come by these days, and no one, after seeing those two, would say that they were anything but. At least no one in his right mind would.

Having heard their song Unholy Confessions, I started paying attention to A7X. They were really good! Each one of them is singularly talented. With The Rev’s signature double ride, M. Shadows pitch perfect singing, Johnny Christ’s playful bass slapping, Zacky V’s solid rhythm to Syn Gates’ blistering solos, put all of that together, you’ll get awesomeness. It’s evident in their performances that not one of them was settling for mediocrity, hoping that the rest of the members will carry them through. All out, that’s what you get from an Avenged Sevenfold performance.

Avenged Sevenfold has the remarkable ability to convey feelings through songs in the coolest, rock on way possible. Non-fans will admire the sheer intensity with which they play. They are respected because of their obvious and undeniable talent. You need to listen to their songs to see that they were not just writing songs; they’re creating something more. Their songs, their album, either lauded or criticized by many, will make you understand the pull that Avenged Sevenfold has. They’re not ones who do things halfway. You’ll love them or you’ll hate them, to quote the Game of Thrones’ famous line — “There’s no middle ground.”

VERY NICE ARTICLE!
Love the- “With The Rev’s signature double ride, M. Shadows pitch perfect singing, Johnny Christ’s playful bass slapping, Zacky V’s solid rhythm to Syn Gates’ blistering solos, put all of that together, you’ll get awesomeness.” & “M. Shadows does give justice to the term vocalist. He enunciates the words clearly and sings with such feeling, you’ll be compelled to feel as he does.” Every show I’ve been to, they all play passionately…& Matt truly sings with his all and that gives me goosebumps. Live or not they sound great
