Avenged Sevenfold open up about their recent surprise album stream, acknowledging it as an "abrupt" release. The new album titled "The stage" was released last Friday with only a days notice. Whilst an album was announced as under construction it had never been made clear by the band as to when it was going to be made available to fans.

Avenged Sevenfold are a band well known for their capacity to generate much buzz and excitement in relation to any new music they release. This time was different however, as fans were not aware of the impending release until a day prior. M Shadows told OC Register:

"We just found that in 2016, if you announce a record and it's coming out in 3 months and you're just giving people breadcrumbs, its the most boring, drawn-out experience.

Zack (Guitarist Zacky Vengeance) and I were talking about how we just didn't want to be that band and drag people along because then there's no excitement the day it comes out.

We said, if we were going to do another record, it's going to be on our terms and doing it this way was exciting to us. "

The album features an eclectic mix of influences, channeling a particularly strong prog theme throughout; with one track 'Exist' running in at a whopping 15 minutes and 41 seconds. With emphasis placed on the incredibly tight musicianship of the band, 'The Stage' sees the band explore exciting and new territories whilst retaining their trademark stylistic tendencies. Pushing the boundaries further than ever before, Avenged Sevenfold continue to stride the line of musical innovation.
