MTV Hive And Loudwire’s Most Anticipated Albums Of 2013.

MTV Hive and Loudwire have compiled lists of their most anticipated albums of 2013 with Avenged Sevenfold appearing on both.

3. Avenged Sevenfold, TBA
In a recent interview with Revolver, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows said he’d been schooling the group’s drummer, Arin Ilejay — who will make his full-length debut with the band on their forthcoming LP — on their most important influences: Pantera, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and so on. “Right now, we’re handing him [Pantera’s] Far Beyond Driven and [Metallica’s] Master of Puppets and saying, ‘Learn these albums…’ because when we’re talking about ‘groove metal,’ we’re not talking about some Warped Tour band,” he said. “We’re talking about fucking Pantera. We’re talking about Black Sabbath, you know?” For a band whose last album, 2010′s Nightmare, had the sort of hooks and epic-length songs that their inspirations in Metallica pioneered in the ’90s, the bar is already pretty high. Until the new album comes out, we have the song they wrote for the latest Call of Duty to tide us over.

3. Avenged Sevenfold
Over the past decade, Avenged Sevenfold have become one of the biggest hard rock bands on the planet, and it sounds as if the band is aiming high for their next album. Singer M. Shadows recently told Metal Hammer that the disc has a Black Sabbath / Led Zeppelin vibe and that the album will take the band to a “whole new level.” The band is planning to head into the studio in late January or early February and release the new album in the summer of 2013.

okay so am I the only one that thinks its weird that a drummer for a hard rock/metal band has not listened to M.O.P. or the BLACK ALBUM before?!

Comment by Hayden Goettl

He didn’t necessarily say that Arin hasn’t listened to those albums. He might listen to the songs in a different way now that he’s grown up a bit, drumming for A7X and all.

Yeah, it sounded like Matt asked him to play through them to get a better idea of the style they want to go with.

Comment by Matt

I thought that was extremely bizarre too. I hope they’re exaggerating when they said they “introduced him” to the albums.

Comment by Brian

Yeah i mean it seems crazy cuz the BLACK ALBUM is so iconic and what not

Comment by Hayden Goettl

I can’t wait! I was wondering if A7X ever thought about a remake of the song “I am a Viking”, by Yngwie. I bet you can make it even better and I would love to hear your take on it. I am a mother of two teenagers and A7X is our favorite band ever! A Family that Rocks together, Stays Together! Light and Love to you all!

“epic-length songs that their inspirations in Metallica pioneered in the ’90s.” I don’t think Load and Re-Load were exactly their primary source of inspiration, and the Black Album hardly had a song over 6 minutes. lol
