Robert Ortiz, drummer of Escape The Fate, recently sat down with Artisan News Service to talk about wanting the band to be bigger then Lady Gaga and Eminem. In the interview Avenged Sevenfold were brought up and Robert had nothing but good things to say.
So what about the success of Avenged Sevenfold? Do they think that the success of their new album made a difference in penetrating public consciousness?
“That ain’t shit. I love Avenged Sevenfold. I absolutely love them. They’ve done, they’re like the biggest in hard rock, in metal. They’re not, you know, like my grandma doesn’t know Avenged Sevenfold. She knows Lady Gaga.”
