M Shadows called into 105.7 The X and talked with Chris James about where the idea for the ‘Deathbat Specials’ giveaways came from, if they knew “Hail To The King” would be their ‘big one’, the inspiration behind Shepherd Of Fire’s lyrics, Hail To The King: Deathbat, having die-hard fans and more.

CJ: I was reading an article somewhere on you guys and… Shepherd [Of Fire] was your ‘Sympathy For The Devil’, really?
M: Lyrically. I think Mick Jagger did a great job in giving you the in’s and out’s and both sides of the devil and where he’s been and what he’s done. That’s kind of like a where he’s been and what he’s done song. For my song, what I was writing lyrically about is that sometimes the devil, if you believe in that sort of thing, can come to you in these ways that you feel is almost a good thing for you and really it’s not. So, I’m not necessarily a religious person but I use the devil as a metaphor of problems and situations in life.
