Avenged Sevenfold: 'We Wouldn't Have Been Happy Making Another 'Nightmare''
In the fourth part of their Team Rock interview, US metallers Avenged Sevenfold discussed the making process and overall vibe of their latest studio effort "Hail to the King." According to singer M. Shadows, the recently released material was the only way to go for A7X, as taking any other route simply wouldn't please the California-based five-piece. "We wouldn't have been happy making another 'Nightmare,' we wouldn't have been happy making [another] 'Waking the Fallen,'" the frontman said. "So if you're not happy doing it, what's the point of releasing it? To me that's the definition of a sellout - people that don't write music they truly want to write." Everyone in the band seemed to agree that "Hail to the King" presents a natural progression, with guitarist Synyster Gates also sharing a few interesting stories from back in the day. "We started off as kind of a hardcore band and then I kinda came in," the axeman said. "I didn't have that much influence at that point, but we were all best friends for the longest time since pretty much middle school. So we just started imposing upon each other and just realized it was fun to do so - just shake things up and really inspire each other. So every album's been an evolution." "Hail to the King" dropped yesterday (August 27) via Warner Bros. as the sixth studio effort in A7X opus. Featuring 10 new tunes, the record was previously announced with the title track single and music video.
