Last year, Avenged Sevenfold released the documentary 'All Excess'. While it was a a great entry to any fans collection, most had been holding out for a full live concert. And now, a year later, it's finally hear, and boy was it worth the wait!
Live in the LBC captures the band in perfect form during the hometown show as headline act on the 2008 Taste of Chaos tour. Like their recent self titled album, it opens with the politically charged rocker Critical Acclaim. And like the rest of the concert, it is performed very well and even manages to surpass the album version.
The set-list is good and captures the highlights from their new album (Including an amazing performance of A Little Piece of Heaven), the singles from City of Evil, and a cover of Pantera's Walk sung by a fan from the crowd.
While this is kind of a greatest hits set-list, and mainly aimed at their newer fans, Avenged haven't forgotten the fans that have been their from the beginning. They prove this by playing two songs off their 2003 album, Waking the Fallen. These are brilliant performances of the single Unholy Confessions, and the fan favourite Second Heartbeat. To even further satisfy these fans, Shadows even brings back some screaming vocals.
I would recommend this DVD to all A7X fans. Weither you're a new fan, or a fan from the days before they were a household name. I would also recommend it to fans of rock/metal music, or are just looking for a kick ass show. Check this out, you won't be disappointed!
