Vinnie Paul: "Avenged Sevenfold are probably the biggest metal band going today"

Vinnie Paul spoke with Loudwire about Avenged Sevenfold. Hellyeah and Adrenaline Mob will be the opening band for the "Shepherd of Fire Tour" in North America.


You have this tour coming up with Avenged Sevenfold, and they’ve got a huge following …
VP: They’re probably the biggest metal band going today. They have an incredible following, we’ve been friends for a long time. I sent Matt [singer M. Shadows] three of the [Blood For Blood] tracks before we got the tour and I’m pretty positive that’s what nailed the tour for us. He loved them. He hit me up right away and said he was going to take us out with them, which was very awesome to be able to go and play 15, 16, 17 thousand seat arenas full of people that dig f—in’ heavy metal. It’ll be awesome. It’s hard to do this day in age. To be on the bill with them is really great.
