Billboard: Cover Story degli A7X

Billboard ha postato un estratto dall’intervista fatta alla band, che compare sulla copertina del numero. Qui, M. Shadows parla della collaborazione della band con l’Activision, delle questioni di marketing per ‘Hail to The King’ incluse cacce al tesoro e contest, del lavoro fatto sul cd, e tanto altro.
“I don’t want the fair-weather fans, the soccer moms who watch ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ to discover us that way,” says Sevenfold lead singer Matt Sanders, who performs as M. Shadows. “I want the people who grew up listening to AC/DC and Slayer, and if we can figure out the right way to have those people see a snippet of what you’d see at a festival or a live show, we’ll do it.”
At 25, Ilejay is some seven years younger than most of the band’s founding members. Instead of the classic metal that Avenged Sevenfold came of age with, he was raised on newer groups like Bullet for My Valentine and even early Avenged records. Shadows credits Ilejay’s work with shaping the record’s “twist” on the tried and true formula. “We’re all big believers in metal with a foot in the blues. We have a lot of Elton John influences in our music, a little bit of the Beatles, which is sometimes surprising to people. We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel, we just want to put a different flavor on the music.
