DAILY WARDEN TRACK: One of the most popular parties in Edmonton every year is the "THAW AT The SHAW," and last night's Spring bash was epic for metalheads.  AVENGED SEVENFOLD was the headliner, along with HELLYEAH, and a couple other bands.  The show was sold out, the crowd was electrified, and the mood was over-the-top!  It was a wicked way for "Bad Thursday" to lead into "Good Friday" and the Easter long weekend.  The past year has been massive for A7X, with sold out shows all over the planet, and their latest album "Hail To The King" (2013) garnering more fans.  From that album, click the make-believe "play button" to the right for "DOING TIME."
