Atreyu says new album will be 'punch in the face for heavy metal fans'
If you're one of those people who enjoyed Atreyu's early material but stopped listening to them when they started abandoning metal and embracing rock, pay attention. In a new interview with Australian magazine Hysteria, Atreyu drummer Brandon Saller was asked to expound upon band frontman Alex Varkatzas' recent online declaration that the band's comeback album would feature "tons of screaming and shredding" but contain "none of that major-label BS."
Saller had the following to say:
"We're trying to get back to where we were when we first started the band; all we wanted to do was fucking destroy a 300-person-capacity club. We just want to go back to fast and heavy.
"We've written and recorded a few songs, and it's coming up awesome, but we are trying to keep our mouths shut on this."
"I'll say this much: it's very heavy, and a punch in the face for heavy metal fans."
Since the interview was conducted, Atreyu has officially entered the studio to begin tracking the aforementioned new album. Stay tuned.
