Live: Metal Month in Chicago

Catching up with this month's metal.

1. "Slayer, Megadeth and Testament - three bands that helped reinvent metal in the '80s - drew nearly a full house Friday inside the steamy UIC Pavilion, defying age and gravity to play sets that hit hard and fast, brutality delivered with a sinister smile," Greg Kot writes for the Tribune.




2. "Avenged Sevenfold teased the crowd much like KISS does prior to starting their set," Bob Zerull writes for Zoiks!. "First the curtain drops, but no band, then the fire starts up, but no band, then some lights turn on, still no band. Finally all the lights go out, one of the rafters above the stage falls. A guy falls off of the rafter and hangs himself, then the boys in Avenged Sevenfold bust into their newest hit 'Nightmare.'"


"The crowd went nuts," Jason Tanamor writes for Zoiks!. "It definitely benefited Disturbed being from Chicago. That and the fact Draiman assured the fans that Disturbed is and will always be from Chicago. From there, the guys had the venue at their disposal."


3. "They came, they rocked us like a hurricane, and they said goodbye," Bobby Reed writes for the Sun-Times. "Saturday night at the Rosemont Theater, hard-rock icons the Scorpions performed in the United States for perhaps the last time, and two famous siblings shared the stage for the historic occasion."
