is nothing that we’re too scared to touch on,” declared Zacky Vengeance, the fearless guitarist of Avenged Sevenfold. In a recent interview with Loudwire Nights, Vengeance gave fans a glimpse into the band’s new album, Life Is But a Dream, and revealed that they went all out with their creative vision, regardless of the risks involved.
Vengeance opened up about the band’s attitude towards making music, stating that they refuse to conform to the standards prescribed by the music industry. For Avenged Sevenfold, it’s always been about taking risks and being true to their art. “We have to be willing to risk all of it for the excitement that brought us to do this in the first place,” he explained.
As the interview delved deeper, Vengeance revealed that the band has never been afraid to step outside of their comfort zone. They’ve treated every album as if it were their last, fighting hard to stay true to their vision and not cave into pressure from record labels or their fans’ expectations. And their latest album is no exception.
“Life Is But a Dream” represents a departure from their usual sound, and Vengeance knows that not everyone will embrace it right away. But for Avenged Sevenfold, it’s about creating something that’s true to themselves and their fans. “It doesn’t matter,” said Vengeance. “It’s what we wanted to do … I’m so proud of my band because we’ve always had the same mentality to be the band that put out the Warmness on the Soul EP as 17-year-olds.”
In an industry where artists constantly play it safe, Avenged Sevenfold remains fiercely unapologetic. The band knows that the road to greatness is never easy, but they’re not afraid to take the risks and embrace the excitement that comes with it. And for the die-hard fans who have followed them from the beginning, that’s what makes Avenged Sevenfold truly legendary.
