Avenged Sevenfold's M.Shadows: "We really wanted to try to make some old school sounding music that..."

M.Shadows recently spoke with Loudwire, you can read an excerpt below:

Would you be thinking of doing scores for video games if it wasn’t yours? Some other genre?
We’ve been asked to do things like, ‘Oh, do you guys want to write a song with this band or do you want to do some music for this movie or a track for a video game?’ It just doesn’t really interest us. I don’t think we’re lazy but we only want to do things our heart is totally into. Doing music for some game that I’m not invested in doesn’t sound appealing to me. I like to do as much as I can when I get the spark, the fire and really want to do it. For us, this game was something that we really wanted to put our feet in the water here. We really wanted to try to make some old school sounding music that we grew up loving. It piqued our interest. But doing stuff for other people’s games just never really piqued our interest like that.
