Live + Photos: Avenged Sevenfold & Year Long Disaster @ London ULU – 20 August 2008

Avenged Sevenfold are used to playing to thousands of metallers but tonight they’re playing to just hundreds. Lynsey Wright was there to see it but she wasn’t throwing any underwear at the renowed lotharios…

Avenged Sevenfold Thrash Hits

The final instalment of the Kerrang Awards’ week of shows sees LA’s Year Long Disaster playing tracks from their latest album and entertaining the ram-packed ULU as the opener for headline act Avenged Sevenfold.

Year Long Disaster have previously toured with the likes of Foo Fighters and Velvet Revolver so are well versed in warming-up crowds.

They certainly didn’t disappoint as they dose them up with their own brand of hard rock and leaving the audience sweaty and all the more ready for the headliners.

Avenged Sevenfold’s set is short and sharp but not so sweet. Bombarded with all manner of ladies undergarments from the minute they walk on stage, it’s clear this band have a reputation preceding them.

Playing two covers, one being a ferocious and long-standing favourite of theirs, Walk by Pantera, the other, a punchy version of NOFX’s Linoleum, there is something for even the most sceptical audience member.

They even get a little help from Matt Tuck of Bullet For My Valentine who comes on for a verse of Walk seemingly just to further prove their ‘rock gods’ status.

Vocalist, M. Shadows struts around the stage like he means it throughout their set and A7X exit the stage to a foray of cheers and applause from the rock-riled crowd.
