Lost In Vegas React to Avenged Sevenfold’s “Nightmare” With Two Thumbs Up
Ryan and George from the popular YouTube channel Lost In Vegas have gained quite a bit of attention over the years for their enthusiastic, unbiased reaction videos to music suggestions from fans. While they’ve claimed in the past that they’re not really into metal, it’s hard to believe them when they give such nuanced and complex reviews of tracks like Megadeth’s “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due”, often making accurate connections to other metal songs they’ve covered. Their latest endeavor tackles Avenged Sevenfold’s “Nightmare,” and despite the fact that the metal community loves to hate A7X, Ryan and George seem to dig it.
The duo say that they can understand metal elitests’ gripes with the track, noting that it can certainly come off as “poppy” and “cheesy.” However, they also applauded “Nightmare” for its powerful drumming and the old-school, thrashy vocals, saying “it rocks the fuckin’ HOUSE!”
While Avenged Sevenfold are easy to hate, it’s interesting to heara critique from someone with no pre-concieved notions about the band. Watch the reaction video below and tell us what ya think, and check out Avenged Sevenfold’s upcoming tour dates here.
