I bet the collective thought of the audience down under went something like this: “Fuck me, Machine Head’s going to pl…wait, it’s just those dicks.”
A report claims Avenged Sevenfold allegedly used a Machine Head crest banner, only to pull it back to reveal Avenged Sevenfold’s bat logo, which they stole from Overkill.
Hence the confusion for this writer, who filed this report:
“Avenged Sevenfold, after once refusing to play Soundwave because of a clash with Iron Maiden in past years, used their headline set to take swipe at Machine Head, who incidentally had called Avenged Sevenfold‘s latest album a ‘covers’ album.
“Many fans would have been confused at the opening when a massive Machine Head banner was setup as the backdrop. This eventually fell away in a flurry of pyro and fire to reveal the true Avenged Sevenfold banner — the Death Bat.”
And it looked a little something like this.
