AVENGED SEVENFOLD Singer: 'We Have So Many Eerie Similarities To METALLICA'

November 3, 2013

Radio.com recently conducted an interview with AVENGED SEVENFOLD vocalist M. Shadows and bassist Johnny Christ. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked how it feels to be compared to METALLICA, M. Shadows said: "To me, we have so many eerie similarities to METALLICA, it's ridiculous. We lost a member during one of our most important times. We have an album now which is being compared to the 'black' album [by METALLICA], which is very… For us, we kneel at the throne. We're very much big fans of METALLICA. At the same time, we're just doing our thing, we're trying to create our own legacy."

AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently filmed a video for the song "Shepherd Of Fire" with director Wayne Isham, who has helmed clips for such artists as METALLICA, PANTERA, GODSMACK, DEF LEPPARD and BON JOVI.

Isham previously worked with AVENGED SEVENFOLD on the "Seize The Day", "Afterlife", "Nightmare" and "So Far Away" videos.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD's sixth studio album, "Hail To The King", sold 159,000 copies in its first week of release, giving the California band their second straight chart-topper after 2010's "Nightmare".

AVENGED SEVENFOLD kicked off its first major tour in support of the new CD on October 3 in Chicago.
