Avenged Sevenfold -- Baltimore, MD -- October 8th, 2013

Full Review

First off: Haters gon hate
Second Off: who the hell booked this tour? Such an odd combination

My brother had an extra ticket, so I went to see this show instead of Battlecross in Frederick. I had not seen Avenged Sevenfold (AX7) before, and like them and Ghost, so this was going to be interesting. And annoying cause the Deftones are horrible

I got there as Ghost was going on, and I don't know if I was really tired or what, but I only recall the songs from Year Zero on, and it seemed like they only played half a set. Other reports I see have them playing their whole set, but they were done about 10 minutes before 8. I don't know...The crowd response for a sing along on "Monstrance Clock" was abysmal. I don't know, but a smaller venue really works better for them. and a more mellow vibe.

Deftones I absolutely hated. I tried to give them a listen, but they sounded like a mess. the crowd seemed to like them, somehow. but I could only try to check my email and troll the internet and peruse recipes.

AX7 finally came on and they were very good, especially with the sound system at the arena. I thought their setlist was a bit weak, but it had wide variety (ballad, rock, metalcore, anthems, etc.), so that was unexpected. I think these guys get a lot of shit for their pop metal or whatever you want to call it, but they had an entertaining show with pyro, Dave and Buster style CGI graphics, and a huge Lich King I mean Skeleton king. I think their tribute to the Rev, while somewhat touching was very Zakk Wylde/DImebag esque. And killed the mood.

Ghost (?must have been before 7:30 -7:49)

What's with Avenged not playing Beast And The Harlot?

I'm glad someone local posts setlists of shows I miss. I agree with most of your opinions but anyone who likes Ghost and bags on Deftones is retarded to me. Ghost is like the house band for Scooby Doo. Just fucking awful and cartoonish. Deftones are one of the best live bands i've ever seen. To each his own I guess...

I go to a lot of shows and want to help out even if it is just confirming setlists. I like that I can get a 'preview' of shows thru this and setlist.fm combinations. :3

that's actually what I think Ghost will do next- an animated short as the video for some obscure cover.

I've seen them twice live and still haven't seen them play Seize The Day, so I'd personally love to see them play that. Gunslinger or Danger Line would be killer too.
