Avenged Sevenfold are set to head into the studio next month to record their "groove-oriented" follow-up to Nightmare. NME spoke with M. Shadows who confirmed the band will begin recording their new album in January.
Shadows said to NME , "This album's a little more groove orientated," he said. "There's a little bit more groove to it, a little bit more focused on bigger riffs. So that's where it's headed – every song has gotta have a huge riff and every song has to have a groove to it."
The California metallers have also written a new song called 'Carry On', which appears on Call Of Duty Black Ops II and features the band performing the song as digital characters during the end credits.
Speaking about the game, M Shadows revealed that the band were "Really honoured to be made into, you know, immortalised on a video game". He added: "At the same time, it's really cool that it's on the Call Of Duty game 'cause we're big fans of the game."
