M. Shadows: 'Avenged Sevenfold Are Eerily Similar to Metallica'
Radio.com has recently been talking with Avenged Sevenfold vocalist M. Shadows and bassist Johnny Christ about the status of the band after the release of their recent self-titled album, Blabbermouth reports. The record has received many comparisons to Metallica's 1991 self-titled album, and, as Shadows notes, he sees the similarities between the two bands as being eerie: "To me, we have so many eerie similarities to Metallica, it's ridiculous. We lost a member during one of our most important times. We have an album now which is being compared to the 'Black Album' [by Metallica], which is very ... For us, we kneel at the throne. We're very much big fans of Metallica. At the same time, we're just doing our thing, we're trying to create our own legacy." Avenged Sevenfold were recently announced as the first headliner for next year's Download Festival. The event is set to take place at Donington in the U.K between 13-15th June. The band will be headlining the Friday night with main support from Rob Zombie. Linkin Park will be headlining the Saturday with a complete performance of their landmark 2000 debut, "Hybrid Theory." What do you think? Are Avenged Sevenfold the successors to Metallica’s throne? Or are the thrash giants untouchable? Let us know in the comments.
