║   After 3 years of near silence, Avenged Sevenfold returned to our      ║
║   conscience on October 13 with a comeback 8-and-a-half minute single,  ║
║   æThe StageÆ, which to the surprise of absolutely no-one, divided      ║
║   opinion in a big way. One striking feature, however, was that after   ║
║   the uninspired Hail To The King album, the band were back to taking   ║
║   chances. Musically, the song was a lot more sprawling and diverse,    ║
║   the drumming in particular was much more accomplished and in keeping  ║
║   with a more familiar Avenged Sevenfold sound. Soon thereafter came    ║
║   news of a new record, albeit through no more than a very cryptic      ║
║   marketing campaign (Chris JerichoÆs soon-deleted tweet                ║
║   notwithstanding). So no more Voltaic Oceans, no more December         ║
║   release date, but straight to the point, unleashed at the nearest     ║
║   available opportunity û quite the statement in itself, but does the   ║
║   album follow suit?                                                    ║
║                                                                         ║
║   Well, quite simply: yes. What Avenged Sevenfold have done here is     ║
║   rediscovered the ambition that grew to shape earlier releases like    ║
║   Waking The Fallen and City of Evil û not perfect albums by any        ║
║   stretch, but fuelled by experimentation and grandiose ideas, things   ║
║   that were lost entirely on 2013Æs Hail To The King in favour of a     ║
║   more straightforward sound-a-like of their influences which ended up  ║
║   famously dull and contrived, with the strongest praise befalling      ║
║   itÆs bare-bones competence in delivery.                               ║
║                                                                         ║
║   Avenged Sevenfold are treading new ground with new purpose, and       ║
║   re-discovering their sense of fun. From the baffling, but strangely   ║
║   welcome brass section on æSunny DispositionÆ to the System Of A       ║
║   Down-ish opening riff to æGod DamnÆ, and from the black metal styled  ║
║   shredding and percussion that adorn the verses of æFermi ParadoxÆ to  ║
║   the almost ambient dub (come on, I said almost) closing to æHigherÆ,  ║
║   the Avenged Sevenfold of 2016 are not even close to resting on their  ║
║   laurels and re-hashing uninspired techniques. Where they do pick and  ║
║   choose elements of their own back catalogue, it is only to the        ║
║   benefit of the record: we revisit Waking The Fallen territory on the  ║
║   post-chorus screams in æParadigmÆ and City of Evil-esque              ║
║   string-infused balladry of æRoman SkyÆ (but donÆt worry, this isnÆt   ║
║   just a simple æSeize The DayÆ rehash). By the time fifteen-minute,    ║
║   mainly instrumental closer æExistÆ rolls around, one thing is         ║
║   certain: everything about The Stage is covered in a welcome           ║
║   pomposity and swagger that had been disconcertingly absent for far    ║
║   too long. It is undoubtedly tongue-in-cheek in its delivery - and     ║
║   weÆre treated to the trademark Shadows sneering chuckle in the        ║
║   opening track - but it all comes together soà convincingly. No, this  ║
║   isnÆt a return to their roots in the all-screaming, all-heavy sense,  ║
║   but neither is it concerned with being radio-friendly hard rock.      ║
║   This is a different beast entirely.                                   ║
║                                                                         ║
║   Truth be told, if Nightmare and HTTK hadnÆt been released, The Stage  ║
║   absolutely feels like a natural progression from City of Evil. I      ║
║   intentionally leave out the self-titled album from this list as       ║
║   there are a few elements from it on show here, but the instrumental   ║
║   twists and turns on Avenged Sevenfold served only to aid fleeting     ║
║   ideas (such as æBrompton CocktailÆ, æLostÆ and æDear GodÆ). On this   ║
║   latest offering, however, we are presented with a magnum opus û       ║
║   prepared to weave and shapeshift, prepared to embrace the unknown     ║
║   with reckless abandon, utilising strings, keyboards, world            ║
║   percussion, synthetic soundscapes - all of which amplify the          ║
║   melodrama but the band also acknowledge their theatrics (something    ║
║   that the video to the lead single attests to). In short, these songs  ║
║   are absolutely massive and immaculately performed. The addition of    ║
║   Brooks Wackerman on drums is also a huge boost to the record û        ║
║   whether Arin Ilejay was dismissed as a result of the negative         ║
║   reception to HTTK is a mystery, and it is definitely a shame that he  ║
║   was not able to show his true potential on these songs (which         ║
║   assuredly need a more advanced approach than on the predecessor) -    ║
║   but Wackerman has shown himself to be a more than capable filler of   ║
║   The RevÆs shoes.                                                      ║
║                                                                         ║
║   The Stage is not without criticism, far from it, and nor is it an     ║
║   album for the cynical û and Avenged Sevenfold have (probably quite    ║
║   fairly) earned an abundance of that in their 17-year history. From    ║
║   being painfully too high in the mix on Nightmare, Johnny ChristÆs     ║
║   bass is barely anywhere to be heard on this record, which is a shame  ║
║   as the stomping riffs on æCreating GodÆ and æSimulationÆ in           ║
║   particular are crying out for just a little more low-end to really    ║
║   growl as ferociously as intended. Furthermore, despite the            ║
║   improvement to M ShadowsÆ voice - vocals are still verging on a       ║
║   distraction. This is undoubtedly an improved performance by him in    ║
║   comparison to previous efforts, but he does still possess the         ║
║   off-putting nasal quality that has afflicted every single album       ║
║   post-Waking The Fallen. On this record, he opts for strength over     ║
║   layering, which is admirable and produces some of his strongest       ║
║   output in some time, but as a result he does feel a little            ║
║   under-produced in comparison to the rest of the record, which         ║
║   doesnÆt help when arguably he needs the biggest boost of all the      ║
║   members. Finally, æAngelsÆ at the mid-point of the record serves      ║
║   only to slow down the pace, and is a little unnecessarily dreary      ║
║   given the energy of the rest of work on display here.                 ║
║                                                                         ║
║   To sum it up as succinctly as possible, The Stage is not likely to    ║
║   gain Avenged Sevenfold any new fans, but it is liable to trigger a    ║
║   collective thought of æah yeah, I remember what these guys were       ║
║   aboutÆ û and for fans like myself, it is assuredly a return to form   ║
║   that a lot of hope had waned for. It chooses progression over         ║
║   stagnation, risks over comfort, and flair over ease. The real         ║
║   problem that they face here is theyÆve posed an almost impossible     ║
║   question: why should anyone care about Avenged Sevenfold in 2016?     ║
║   The Stage is far beyond a worthy answer, but whether it enables the   ║
║   band to overcome the parody of themselves they became remains to be   ║
║   seen. If they are capable of bodies of work like this, it makes Hail  ║
║   To The King all the more of a baffling mis-step, and not everyone is  ║
║   forgiving enough to afford them another chance.                       ║
║                                                                         ║
║   The Stage is however a fitting title. Avenged Sevenfold are once      ║
║   more front and centre, keen again to prove what showmen they truly    ║
║   are.                                                                  ║
