Avenged Sevenfold: M Shadows Talks ‘Hail To The King’, Festival Headliners And That Haircut
Avenged Sevenfold made a special guest appearance on Friday’s Metal Hammer Magazine Show on TeamRock Radio to talk about their upcoming UK tour, M Shadow’s dodgy barnet and why Hail To The King is the most important album of their career
Check it out below…
“Metallica and Maiden are still holding the torch, but we’re heading their way.”
AVENGED SEVENFOLD are returning to stake their claim as heavy metal’s new kings, and we speak to three of the OC icons in our huge cover feature as bold and bombastic new album Hail To The King prepares to smash all preconceptions and seat them at the table of metal’s true legends. It’s the biggest and best Avenged interview you’ll get this year and covers more ground with more members than anything else you’ll read – guaranteed.
Plus, as well as a killer competition to win a POP-UP TROOPER BEER BAR, our new issue also packs aFREE IRON MAIDEN SUPPLEMENT featuring exclusive photos, a free poster and even free Trooper Beer mats! DRINK FOR MEEEEE, DONINGTOOOON! Oh, there’s an awesome FREE CD featuring some of the hottest new acts around, too.
Also in the new issue, we tackle the heavy-as-fuck, monstrous beast that is the new PHIL ANSELMOalbum and ask the man himself what the hell was going on when he decided to make the heaviest album of his entire life, and herald the arrival of the most exciting band on the planet. CROSSFAITH have landed, ladies and gentlemen, and as we discovered when we headed out to Vegas to join the Japanese rave metal maniacs on this year’s Vans Warped Tour, they aren’t planning on going anywhere.
And speaking of fucking rad young bands, how badass are THE DEFILED? Extremely badass, that’s how badass. We catch up with the Londoners as their latest slab of hook-riddled industrial metal majesty prepares to muscle in on everyone’s end-of-year lists and install them as one of the best metal bands in the UK. We also hail the return of the phenomenal LETLIVE and find out exactly how they can possibly follow up one of the best albums of recent times, get an exclusive look into the new KORN album (featuring a very special bus ride with a certain Mr Davis…) and high five the legend that is JASON NEWSTED for being quite possibly the most metal motherfucker on the planet.
Oh, and there’s the small matter of our huge look at the incredible rise and rise of LAMB OF GOD, a cheeky SEPULTURA vs MALEFICE face-off, the prodigious prog machine that is KARNIVOOL, a chat with Turisas, Morbid Angel and Behemoth-approved heavy metal fashionista SHARON TOXIC, plus THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, DEVICE, SATYRICON, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, FROM THE VASTLAND and our own Metal Hammer Guide To Paganism, courtesy of HUNTRESS. Huge.
