Asking Alexandria: 'Avenged Sevenfold Are Becoming the Next Metallica'
Asking Alexandria drummer James Cassells shared words of praise for fellow modern metallers Avenged Sevenfold, predicting them a bright future and a household name status. Chatting with Midwest Music Scene, James didn't hesitate to acknowledge A7X as future metal greats, describing them as "the next Metallica" and "the next Iron Maiden." "They're already a massive, massive band, but they're becoming, like, the next Metallica, the next Iron Maiden, a band that's gonna go down in history," the drummer said (via Blabbermouth). "It's so good how a true metal/rock act is getting to the point where it's, like, you're making this a mainstream thing, you're becoming a household name. And them doing that is helping every band that plays metal." Focusing on ripoff accusations A7X keep getting about their latest effort "Hail to the King," Cassells commented, "I think it's f--king sweet; I love it. People are knocking it: 'Ah, it sounds just like Metallica.' I'm, like, 'Yeah, it does sound a bit like Metallica. But who gives a f--k?' I like Metallica and so do they. You've gotta remember as well, they lost one of the main writers in the band." "Hail to the King" saw its release on August 27 via Warner Bros. The latest Asking Alexandria effort, "From Death to Destiny," dropped on August 6 through Sumerian Records.
