M.Shadows: "The biggest challenge..."

Loudwire has interviewed M.Shadows, below an excerpt:

What was the biggest challenge in putting together the album and what has been the nicest pay off for you so far?


The biggest challenge had to be containing ourselves and trying to stick to our original vision of doing something a little more groove-oriented, a little more stripped back and riff based. Also sticking to the blues, we like to kind of venture out and do a lot of stuff that is a little more neo-classical and get a little more melodic minor in our music. Staying in the blues is really tough for us but that was the vision from the beginning and we wanted to make sure the whole record stayed with the concept.
The biggest payoff has been getting the South American tour, the biggest songs we are playing are from ‘Hail to the King.’ Everything from ‘Nightmare’ to ‘Hail to the King’ is just going over so big down here. That is a good thing because you don’t want to be a band where you are putting out new records and people just want to hear old stuff. That has been very, very cool.
