M.Shadows on how Kanye West inspired Avenged Sevenfold
M.Shadows says the way the band chose to launch new album The Stage followed a path set out by Kanye West, Beyonce and Radiohead.
And asked whether the band are the heavy metal Kanye West, he tells Metal Hammer: "I think there are a lot of similarities."
He added: "I know that people will see that and it'll be some kind of quote so someone can get some clicks off it, but the way we do merchandise, the way that we're going to be doing our live show, the way we're gonna release our records, the way that we're going get music to people, is very much in that vein. We're not going back to the old ways."
