“We know people like it, but…”

The musicians ofavenged sevenfold spoke about their approach to music composition in a new episode of their official podcast, Trax by Avenged Sevenfold.

While analyzing Strength Of The World, the typically western-toned song from 2005’s City Of Evil album, vocalist M. Shadows remarked that the band have never been afraid to explore new sonic territory.

He stated in particular: “I feel like we’ve always been kind of chameleons, able to take a bunch of things that we like and work them into what we do.”

He added : “For example, Danny Elfman sounds like Danny Elfman and Ennio Morricone sounds like Ennio Morricone, but we’re able to do a bit of both, and we can make it sound good in a context. Metal.”

Later, he said the band tried to avoid writing too many ballads, adding: “I know we’ve done songs like So Far Away and Sixteen The Day, but we try to stay as far away from the Rock ‘generic’. We try to steer clear of 80s ballads…even though we know people like it, and the success of these two songs just proves that, if you can do a good ballad, people will love it. ‘ll like it, but that’s really not what we enjoy doing.”

On the other hand, it’s official, Avenged Sevenfold will release their new album in 2023.

All we know for now is that the new record was mixed by Andy Wallace (Noose, Korn, Linkin Park, system of a Downetc.), who has mixed every Avenged Sevenfold record since City Of Evil.

Moreover, this album features a 78-piece orchestrawhich, as drummer Brooks Wackerman noted in an earlier post, helped make this album “different from anything they’ve released so far.”
