Sound: The Avenged Sevenfold has rocked the Indonesian A7X's fans perfectly and superbly. With their unbeatable skills, M. Shadows and gangs were at their best and supreme conditions. They played all the songs well and awesomely. The rock-screaming vocal of M. Shadows, the rapid guitar strum of Synyster Gates with his mate, Zacky Vengeance, the metalcore bass of Johnny Christ and the heart-beating drum of The Reverend made the arena vibrate heavily, made all the peoples Who passed by think they were in a rock country. I think it's very awesome. // 9

Perfomance: The audience was really enjoyed it. The sound of strumming guitar, heavy bass, head-banging drums and the rockin' M. Shadows's vocal was giving rock-metal sensation to the jumping and screaming crowd. After the heart-braking one hour delay, The Beast and The Harlot played at sudden. When the audience was bored of the delay, the Darkness turned out into a bright surrounding and The Beast and The Harlot played. After that, The Rev started the Burn It Down with his drums and cheer out the audience. The Unholy Confessions was played perfectly by the A7X and made the crowd more enthuse. Then, the M.I.A, Trashed and Scattered and there was a new song played. And there was a solo play by Synyster Gates, Who was a rapid-strumming guitar player. The last song was Bat Country and I think it was an encore, cause the audience shouted, "we want more!" The decoration was cool enough. With the winged skull at the background. Sometimes, the winged skull morphed into a pirate winged skull because of the light effects. When Synyster Gates's guitar wasn't working, he tried to attract the audience interest by getting off from the stage and then shaking their hands and The Rev, Who had more drum sticks, threw his drum sticks to the excited crowd. While the guitar was being repaired, M. Shadows had a chat with the audience, gave the audience the fact of how old he is. That was pretty weird. But the total performance was metal! // 8

Overall Impression: The Indoor Tennis Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia was the perfect place for A7X to strum their metalcore music on August 7. There was some problems occur, like the one hour delay, the not-working guitar etc. But when Synyster Gates's guitar wasn't working, he tried to attract the audience interest by getting off from the stage and then shaking their hands and The Rev, Who had more drum sticks, threw his drum sticks to the excited crowd. While the guitar was being repaired, M. Shadows had a chat with the audience, gave the audience the fact of how old he is. 26, not bad for a hardcore man. This moment is one of the unforgettable moment in that concert. I think it's very worthed. The tickets cost 300, 000 Indonesian Rupiah or about $32 for festival and $21 for tribune. It's more than worthed, for the exhilarating performance of the Avenged Sevenfold. But the bone-scattering moment that made me feel bored was the brain-sucking one hour delay. But the overall was rock! // 9
