It's an inspirational message versus an in-your-face proclamation in this 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl matchup. This first round pairing sees Avenged Sevenfold attempting to 'Seize the Day' against Shinedown, who appear ready to 'Devour' their new foes.
One of 2012's must-play games is, of course, Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Along with introducing new weapons, terrains and even zombies, the second chapter of the Black Ops franchise also includes an in-game performance by Avenged Sevenfold.
Avenged Sevenfold are starting to map out their 2013 plans that includes the likely release of a new album and a return to the road. One of the major stops on their upcoming itinerary will be at the Rock in Rio festival, which has become a favorite stopping place over the years.
Avenged Sevenfold are huge video game fans, so it was a no-brainer for the band when they were approached to do something special for the newly-released 'Call of Duty: Black Ops II' game. Not only did they contribute the song 'Carry On' to the soundtrack, the band -- in their animated form -- turn up at the end to perform the track with 'Black Ops'' two main characters.
There's lots of activity in the Avenged Sevenfold camp right now. The band released the new song 'Carry On' for 'Call of Duty: Black Ops II,' and the boys even make an appearance in the game, post-credits, as an animated A7X, playing the song. But most recently, word has come that the band is hard at work on a new album. In a new interview, frontman M. Shadows sheds a little light on the sonic focus of the band's new album and how their new drummer is fitting in during the recording process.
Avenged Sevenfold turn up as performing characters in the new 'Call of Duty: Black Ops II' video game, but there have been a few people suggesting that late drummer The Rev also makes a guest appearance as a grainy figure in the balcony. However, singer M. Shadows says that any likeness to their drummer was purely unintentional and was not something they signed off on.
After revealing recently that Avenged Sevenfold were about six songs into a writing their upcoming album. M. Shadows has now given a big hint as to what direction the band will be taking on the disc. He also has laid out a timetable for the album's release.
There may have been questions at one point as to whether or not Avenged Sevenfold would continue after supporting the 'Nightmare' disc as a tribute to late drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, but the band is definitely progressing toward a new album.
Video game fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of 'Call of Duty: Black Ops II,' which hits shelves tomorrow (Nov. 13). It was previously announced that Avenged Sevenfold's song 'Carry On' would be part of the game's soundtrack, but now we've learned the band makes an appearance in the game, as well.
When Avenged Sevenfold penned the song ‘Nightmare,’ they probably weren’t anticipating rocking babies to sleep with it, but new takes on some of their most popular tracks are making them fit for the younger, diaper-sporting crowd.
