Avenged Sevenfold all acquired their own from nicknames they possessed from high school. Frontman M. Shadows (born Matthew Charles Sanders), chose the alias because he thought of himself as "the darker character in the group" and did not like the way the name Matthew sounded. Guitarist Zacky Vengeance (b. Zachary James Baker) wanted to get back at those who doubted his potential growing up. He also gifted bassist Johnny Christ (b. Jonathan Lewis Seward) with his nickname, saying that it suited him well.
We recently conducted an in-depth interview with Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale about the band's upcoming album ‘The Strange Case Of...’, touring, side projects and much more. But we also asked her who she would like to collaborate with and Hale mentioned a number of interesting choices.
Avenged Sevenfold have been playing with drummer Arin Ilejay since the beginning of this year, but aren’t quite ready to officially induct him into the A7X fold. Singer M. Shadows says that will happen only after they sit down and try composing music together.
