How Avenged Sevenfold became the world's least likely prog stars

Avenged Sevenfold, appearing in Prog? One listen to their new concept album, and we knew that they belonged here...

Three years ago, Avenged Sevenfold were headlining the rock’n’roll mecca of Download Festival at Donington Park in front of a giant skeleton king and walls of flames. So what the hell are they doing in Prog magazine? Well, having spent over 15 years establishing themselves as one of the biggest entities in heavy metal, the Orange County five-piece stunned the headbanging community last year with their seventh album The Stage – a 70+ minute space age epic that transcends genres and leaves their previous riffier offerings in a quivering pile on the floor.
