Avenged Sevenfold, often abbreviated to A7X, is one of those bands that become more popular with every new relase.What started out as a modest Californian metalcore band on a small Belgian label has grown into a modern heavy metal band that sells out major arenas in the States, Japan and Europe. Four years ago they became the youngest ever headliners at GMM. The key to their success? Complex metal with influences from every possible subgenre and a rock-solid live reputation. Singer M. Shadows’ vocal performance in particular has evolved dramatically over the years. ‘Hail to the King’ (2013) topped the album charts in both the UK and the US and paved the way for ‘The Stage’ (2016). Some critics claim that A7X have truly hit their stride with the new album to the progressive influences so if you didn’t catch any of their four previous shows here, now is the time to make amends!
