Avenged Sevenfold: 'Metal's Taken a Beating, We Want to Make It Dangerous Again'
US metallers Avenged Sevenfold recently discussed the current state of metal and their future ambitions, noting they are looking to bring metal back to its glory days. In the upcoming edition of Metal Hammer magazine, the band stated: "Metal's taken a beating, we want to make it dangerous again. "We're building a cult," the California five-piece added. A7X are busy promoting their latest studio effort "Hail to the King" and were recently confirmed as Download Festival 2014 headliners. During a separate Front Army chat, singer M. Shadows discussed the hate group had to cope with over the years, stressing that keeping everyone happy is an impossible task. "Every record we get sh-t," the vocalist said. "We get sh-t if we stay the same and we get sh-t if we change. When we put out 'City of Evil' after 'Waking the Fallen' there was a sh-tstorm. We thought it was really great but people were going 'This f--kin' sucks!' They were calling us sellouts - probably eight of the eleven songs on that record are over eight minutes long, that's like the least sellout move ever. You can't really win." "Hail to the King" dropped in late August via Warner Bros. As the group's sixth studio album, it topped the charts in six countries around the globe, including both UK and the US. The band recently premiered "Shepherd of Fire" music video, make sure to check it out below.
