Avenged Sevenfold: 'We Want to Blow Kids' Minds With Our Show'
Discussing a massive stage set of their current concert trek, US metallers Avenged Sevenfold stressed the importance of delivering a mind-boggling performance and leaving the crowd in awe. Chatting with Metal Hammer, guitarist Zacky Vengeance admitted that there was a period for the five-piece when hitting the stage wasn't such a thrill. "There are times in the past when going onstage felt a bit of a chore," he said, "but now we have a whole new sense of purpose. Our time onstage is undeniably the most exciting two hours of our day." Zacky's fellow guitarist Synyster Gates chipped in, saying, "I hope we're not the Last of the Mohicans when it comes to putting on a big, crazy, over-the-top theatrical rock show. This is what we grew up on, with bands like Maiden and Metallica, and I really hope we're not the last of a dying breed. "We want to blow kids' minds just as we had our minds blown by massive shows when we were growing up," Gates added. "Metal should be spectacular and dramatic and thrilling. When kids invest their time and money in coming to see us, we owe it to them to give them the best night of their lives." The latest A7X studio effort, "Hail to the King," saw its release on August 27 through Warner Bros.
