ARTISTdirect: Avenged Sevenfold’s True Power Shone Through At The Hollywood Palladium.

ARTISTdirect were on hand at Avenged Sevenfold’s “Hail To The King” album release show at the Hollywood Palladium last night and wrote up a review of the show.

It was an historic moment for Southern California’s biggest and boldest metal band. Not only did last night’s show mark their first live set at The Palladium, but it also heralded the release of their sixth and best album, Hail to the King.


Without their trademark production, Avenged Sevenfold’s true power shone through. They criss-crossed the stage doling out a sonic beatdown of epic proportions, and that’s the mark of a legendary band. You could feel it on the venomous “Chapter Four” and “The Beast and the Harlot”—especially on “Bat Country”.

Last night felt like a new beginning for Avenged Sevenfold. In many ways, 2010’s Nightmare closed the first chapter of their career, paying homage to their fallen brother while upping the ante on production to Iron Maiden-size heights. This show served as a dawn—just five musicians destroying a stage as if their lives depended on it and doing so with the best songs of their career to date.

The Palladium (and metal) will never be the same.

This show was absolutely awesome! Best A7X show I’ve seen, and it was even better to see it was just them without all the stage production
