Avenged Sevenfold are one of the more bombastic rock/metal bands out there. It’s very obvious that they draw inspiration from Metallica (maybe a little too much according to Machine Head’s Robb Flynn), but the over-the-topness of Guns N’ Roses is another obvious influence they draw from. At any rate, as big a band as Avenged Sevenfold are, they’re playing a really small place next Thursday – your computer or phone screen. from their website:

They’re not saying what it is, but we were to make an outlandish bet, we’d say that they’ll be playing on the roof of L.A.’s iconic Capitol Records Building to celebrate their signing with a new label. Totally just us spitballing here, but that’d be kind of amazing, no?
