Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Zacky Vengeance spoke in an interview with Omaha World-Herald and explained his thoughts about how heavy metal will rise again.

He said that when the right band comes, we’re gonna see a resurgence for heavy metal. Here’s the statement:

I think it’s due for a revival. It’s gonna take the right bands. Metal and rock fans are definitely there. They love it. They live for it.

Metallica is selling out arenas. We’re selling out arenas. When a young and upcoming band like a new System Of A Down or new Rage Against The Machine comes, people take note of it. All it’s gonna take is catching a radio programmer’s ear, and people are gonna catch on.


In the pop and hip-hop world, there’s a lot of garbage. I love all kinds of music, but when the right band comes, we’re gonna see a resurgence.

What do you think about this? Will heavy metal be able to go back to the glorious days again? Apparently, Zacky has hope about that.

Avenged Sevenfold released a “deluxe edition” of its latest album, “The Stage”, in December.
