This is basically a way to psychologically prep the new drummer Brooks Wackerman for the huge upcoming gig at at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota. It was a surprise gig of sorts and they let the first 1500 to show up at the door in to watch them.
I’ve come to really respect A7X’s work and they’ve matured musically in a good way, bringing back that classic Metal voice that was going the way of the Dodo due to Phil Anselmo inspiring all that screamo crap in the late 90’s. Thankfully these guys chose to keep the flame alive and transformed to a classic Heavy Metal band, a great one.
Brooks did a good job as far as you can hear on this raw video.
