Arin Ilejay: "I had never played classic metal or hard rock before. In my head..."

Arin was interviewed by La Presse, here's an excerpt:


Hail to the King, the first full disk with your contribution as drummer, turned to the metal and classic rock. How have you approached this change?

In my head, I would have come up with a crazy drum solo for each song to impress everyone. But others said, "No, we will put our mark on classic rock." So I set myself my color. We now form a whole. We all work to what Avenged Sevenfold.
