While headlining the Rockstar Taste Of Chaos tour earlier this year, Avenged Sevenfold (aka A7X) taped its full, incendiary April 10 homecoming gig at the Long Beach Arena. Now Avenged Sevenfold issues a DVD of that concert plus a CD featuring previously unreleased songs and covers (including Iron Maiden and Pantera) recorded during the sessions for last year's #4 charting, near-gold self titled album. Vengeance is sweet with this metallic CD+DVD package.

The live DVD is phenomenal, even if I'm just listening to the audio track. They had so much energy and they really got the crowd into the show. Granted, this is from nearly ten years ago now, but that doesn't stop it from fueling my desire to see them live. As far as I can tell from YouTube videos and such, the band still plays fantastically, though they have mellowed out. Whereas the modern shows are energetic without being crazy, this live DVD shows an attitude-fueled, hyper-energetic concert. One must keep in mind, though, they have gotten older; that's probably a great factor in the change, as well as the death of The Rev. Hopefully the band will release another live DVD, updated with material from the more recent records.
Avenged Sevenfold fans will not be disappointed by purchasing this.
DVD packaging is great.
Came with: Concert DVD w/ extras, Diamonds in the Rough CD (unreleased tracks and remixes), Album art.
Video: On an average big screen, this concert looks amazing with the exception of the Main Menu which is pixel-y (forgivable). Video Editing/Direction of the concert is phenomenally entertaining, extras include roughly 20 minutes of intro videos from the rest of the tour.
Sound: Probably best experienced with 5.1 Surround Sound system because otherwise the Lead singer's vocals tend to get drowned out by instruments at times.
Overall I give this product 5 stars. If you're an A7X fan, this is a must have.
Not having a 5.1 Surround Sound system is more the purchasers problem.
DVD Menu being pixel-y could also be something experienced on a Laptop/Computer only.
