The band recently had a set back when they had to cancel their August 24th concert at the Reading Festival due to vocal strains with Matt, but a lot of good news has prevailed for Avenged Sevenfold.  Not only did they win the Kerrang! award for “Album of the Year” for 2008, but more importantly, their Baltimore show at Ram’s Head Live that I’ll be going to is SOLD OUT!

Glad I got my tickets the morning they came out… I had a hunch people from all over would be coming to the band’s only U.S club show.  Not to mention Shadow’s Fall will be opening for them that night.

I’m so pumped.



Atreyu started a revolution

It’s been so long since my last post and a lot has happened.  Two weeks ago, Linkin Park brought Atreyu to my hometown with them.  At first I was resistant but eventually came around to going to see JUST Atreyu.  And that’s what we did.  We got there in time to see a little bit of Hawthorn Heights and too much of 10 Years.  10 years wasn’t bad, but they really weren’t that good.  I can see how a crowd that came to see Linkin Park would like them, but I just could not enjoy it.  They almost made me want to fall asleep.  They sounded a lot like TOOL, and I wasn’t sold on their image.   Overall, they didn’t make me want to buy their album or see them ever again.  And the worst part was that they were opening for the best band on the tour.  ATREYU.

When 10 Years’ set was finally over, we inched our way to the front.  The sun beated down on us, and it had rained earlier so the ground was muddy.  There is nothing like a hot, humid muddy day to go see your favorite band, however, I’ll take a cool air conditioned club anyday of the year 🙂

Atreyu came out and they seriously rocked it.  I was totally impressed by the set, and their interaction with the crowd.  I suppose Alex has his voice back from his time off in between Taste of Chaos and Projekt Revolution.  The band just simply rocked, and we had an amazing, sweaty, grimey time.  My only complaint were the fans.  I noticed that there were too many guys that liked to catapult male crowd surfers, in the most dangerous of ways.  And also too many 15 year old girls that didn’t realize that if you’re going to crowd surf with your bikini on, it’s going to end up coming off by the time you get to the front..

But I digress.  It was a great time. They played many of the songs we loved including The Crimson.  The sound was really great, and I was impressed by how close to the record they sounded.   At the end of the set, we saw our band, went home right away and jumped in the shower 🙂

All in all, it was a great Sunday. Check it out.
