Speaking in a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows has revealed his thoughts on current internet media and websites.

He has revealed the reason of why some websites annoying him. Here’s the statement:

It annoys me when something cool or relevant happens and it doesn’t get written about. Then, other times, they will take one line from some random interview and blow everything out of proportion. Blind follow the blind. If one web site picks it up, then they all have to. Why not write your own articles?

I wish press and fans cared more about the songs than other bullshit that comes along with it. A lot of records and bands are successful or fail based off initial sentiment. For instance, you see one article with a strong opinion all over the place and it dominates the narrative. I wish people would think for themselves. There’s not a lot of that going on these days.”

Avenged Sevenfold’s latest album, “The Stage” was released on October 26, 2016.

Back in September 2018, guitarist Synyster Gates spoke about the upcoming album and said:

“We’re definitely working on stuff and I’m really excited about the stuff that we’re working on.

We’re not full, in the throes, shoulder to shoulder writing music yet, but we’re exchanging ideas and hanging and we’re very much interested … in the brainstorming aspect, the meeting of the minds kind of thing that we do before we write a record.”
