I think we can all agree at this point that Avenged Sevenfold's newest album The Stage was something totally different from the band, and a very solid album despite your opinions of their previous material. So what's vocalist M. Shadows favorite song off the album? Funnily enough, he picks the largely instrumental closer "Exist" in an interview with Ask Anything.
"All the songs have been a favorite at one point, but if I had to pick an absolute favorite, it would probably be 'Exist,' just because it's outside the box and I enjoy the idea that it's trying to convey, which is the Big Bang and the creation of this wonderful universe."
He also reveals his least favorite Avenged Sevenfold song, which is "Unbound" off the band's 2007 self-titled album. From a non-album song standpoint, he picks "Girl I Know," which appeared on the b-sides/live album Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough.
"There's a lot of 'em. Probably 'Girl I Know' because I think the lyrics are incredibly cheesy. Least favorite Avenged song that made it onto a record? It would probably have to be 'Unbound.' I think it's a little sugary for my taste at this age."
