M. Shadows Shares The Avenged Sevenfold Record That ‘Freaked Him Out’

With the release of the new album, Avenged Sevenfold‘s M. Shadows did an interview for the upcoming issue of Revolver magazine. In the interview, Shadows talked about the Avenged Sevenfold songs that freaked him out for the first time.

The songs, from the latest album, called ‘G‘, ‘(O)rdinary‘ and ‘(D)eath‘, are the songs Shadows mentioned. He explained:

“We wrote them as one song, but recorded them individually, so this was the first time we were actually able to put them together since the demo. I was kind of sleepy and lying there, listening to it with the volume down, and then all of a sudden I almost had a heart attack. I was like, ‘OK, this is weird.'”

The band received numerous comments on how their music is not good enough over the years. After Shadows’ near heart attack experience, such thoughts might change. He goes on:

“This went from Steely Dan/Zappa to Stevie Wonder/Daft Punk to Wizard of Oz/Frank Sinatra real quick!’ I’d never freaked myself out with my own music before. I called Brian and was like, ‘Yeah, dude, we went far enough!'”

The band released their eighth studio album, ‘Life Is But A Dream…’, which took seven years to make, on 2nd January. The album has 11 tracks, and is 53 minutes long in total. You can listen to it here.
