USA Today have shared an article in which they spoke to M Shadows about Avenged Sevenfold’s involvement with Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 with the song “Carry On,” gaming with his clan, how the new album is coming along and the front-man confirms a sneaking suspicion amongst fans. A congratulations is in order!
Once players finish the single-player campaign, they see the game’s villain Raul Menendez and one of the main characters Sgt. Frank Woods meet an animated version of the band backstage before joining them onstage to perform the song. Eventually, the entire cast of the game dances to the tune. “Carry On was more like these guys coming together at the end and being buddies after they have pretty much killed each others’ families,” Shadows says. “I’m proud of it and I think it’s fun and it’s actually just really cool to be in a Call of Duty game.”
Avenged Sevenfold has a new album in the works, so Shadows is busy writing. “It’s a big record for us. … All I can say is that we are really excited about it and it’s sounding really good to us,” he says. “It’s definitely different like all of our records are all different from each other. That’s fun. We are just exploring our musical boundaries.”
Shadows says that these days “I write about eight hours a day, five days a week and then play games the rest of the night and hang out with my son,” he says. “Fans don’t need to be worried that I am just playing Call of Duty.”
