Avenged Sevenfold are still going strong on their 'Hail to the King' album and will be for quite some time, but fans of the band will be happy to know that the group intends to revisit pieces of their past for a pair of upcoming projects. Loudwire recently spoke with frontman M. Shadows who revealed plans for two projects the band hopes to complete in the coming months.
During a recent broadcast of 'Loudwire Nights,' radio goddess and host Full Metal Jackie spoke with Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadows. The two covered a wide range of topics including Avenged's new album 'Hail to the King,' the state of the music industry, golfing while on tour + much more.
Despite the success of their latest album, ‘Hail to the King,’ which arrived on Aug. 23, Avenged Sevenfold have had to deal with their fair share of detractors, including some trash talk from their peers in the metal world. Most notably, Machine Head’s Robb Flynn a very public dig at A7X, criticizing the band’s authenticity referring to their latest offering as a “covers album.”
Earlier this week, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn slammed Avenged Sevenfold and their new album 'Hail to the King.' Calling 'Hail to the King' a "covers album," Flynn channeled his inner David Letterman to construct a Top 10 list of jokes about Avenged Sevenfold's latest record, in the process accusing A7X of "blatant jackery" of Metallica, Megadeth and Guns N' Roses songs. Having seen the list, Avenged vocalist M. Shadows has offered a retort in Flynn's direction.
There's been a lot of anticipation for Device, the new project from Disturbed's David Draiman, over the past year. But now the biggest update yet comes with Draiman confirming an all-star lineup of guest musicians for the album, as well as details on the disc's first single and a tentative release date.
