Avenged Sevenfold released an update about the new record. The band announced that the new album is “90 percent done” after the band was able to get a 78-piece orchestra to record its parts.
A7X singer M.Shadows shared new photos of the orchestra in the studio along with him and guitarist Synyster Gates giving their “thumbs up” to what they were hearing. He wrote in a post on Twitter: “Twas worth the wait”.
Band’s drummer Brooks Wackerman also offered an update on the recording process, writing on Instagram: “Well… this happened on Tuesday. We –Avenged Sevenfold – started writing this record 4 years ago and I can’t believe we are 90% done… One of the perks – in the creative process – is that we are able to track a 78-piece orchestra on our records. The fact that we are able to bring incredible musicians together to enhance our art still gives me chills…
“I can’t wait for the the world to hear this… all I can say it’s unlike anything we’ve ever released.. ALRIGHT and good night!”
