In a brand new interview with the Omaha World-Herald, AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarist Zacky Vengeance spoke about the fact that not a lot of metal bands other than his group, METALLICA and IRON MAIDEN are big enough to play arenas.
“I think it’s due for a revival,” Zacky said. “It’s gonna take the right bands. Metal and rock fans are definitely there. They love it. They live for it.
“METALLICA is selling out arenas. We’re selling out arenas. When a young and upcoming band like a new SYSTEM OF A DOWN or new RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE comes, people take note of it. All it’s gonna take is catching a radio programmer’s ear, and people are gonna catch on.
“In the pop and hip-hop world, there’s a lot of garbage. I love all kinds of music, but when the right band comes, we’re gonna see a resurgence.”
