Avenged Sevenfold's Zacky Vengeance about new album: "It's aggressive and melodic"


Avenged Sevenfold guitarists Zacky Vengeance and Synyster Gates and new band's drummer Brooks Wackerman were recently interviewed by Kerrang about new album, you can read some excerpts below.


Is there anything down yet? What’s it sounding like?
Zacky Vengeance: “It’s pretty much completely aggro. It goes in all sorts of aggressive directions and melodic directions. It has a lot of metal elements that we grew up loving. And tons of melody. It’s hard to say. At this point the only word that would describe it is ‘aggro’.”

‘Hail to the King’ had a more stripped-down sound, particulary in the dream department. How is the new material compared to that?
Brooks Wackerman: “It’s going to be a completely different record once again. I just know that, even though it will still sound like Avenged, it’s going to be different to ‘Hail to the King.’ I think there will be a little more classic Avenged in there, intertwined with some new flavors.”

When can we hear the new album?
Brooks Wackerman: “We’re just focusing on writing right now and trying to put together a new record. That’s the focal point. There’s no set timescale, we just want to make sure we all feel confident with it. It is moving right along.”
