Categories: Orange Bits
This week in music news from other places, Huntington Beach's Avenged Sevenhold sits at the center of coverage and controversy at the Los Angeles Times....

  • First, a Calendar-section profile of the band goes deep into the way that their new album was affected by grief following the death of drummer Jimmy Sullivan. [LAT]

  • The same week, though, the Times runs a scathing review of that very album. [LAT]

  • That review brings out a legion of horrified Avenged Sevenfold fans, so many that the Times blogs about it. [LAT]
