And something from M Shadows.
M.Shadows – 13
“You know, it just, sometimes it takes a while to be inspired and I felt like we went through a lot with Nightmare. So proud of that record but at some point you wake up and say, ‘I think I can do better than that’ or at least add on to what we’ve already built with Avenged Sevenfold, add another album into that mix. One day you wake up and that’s what you decide to do ‘cause it takes a lot out of you, you know. [.....] A lot of bands like to put out a lot of records. There are bands that have put out two or three records in the amount of time that Nightmare’s come out and unfortunately we just don’t work that fast but we’re excited about it. Progress is going great, everything sounds awesome and I can’t wait to go out there and play it on the road but we got a little bit of time for that. Can’t wait to get out there and see all our friends in Brazil, South America, Southeast Asia, Europe, get back in the States, you know, everyone. Japan, Canada, just really excited about it. We’re just looking forward to pumping the fans up again and hopefully they dig what they’re doing.I mean, I’d say writing this album took us about 6-7 months. I know we promised the fans that we were going to be in the studio in January. The reality is, we had a bunch of good songs and we just wanted to beat those out. And, not necessarily beat them out just make sure every song was as good as the next. I told Gates, I said “When we’re done with this album I want to be completely drained of all creativity and feel like I have nothing left,” and by the end of the writing process I definitely felt that way and I know he did and the guys did. So, once we got to that point we knew we got the best material that we were going to get and then it was all about laying it down. So, right now that’s what we’re doing and everything sounds great. I guess there’s a long road to making an album sound great. You gotta execute but also the mix, the master [....]”
