Avenged Sevenfold - "each individual person was in their own emotional way captured on this record"

Avenged Sevenfold Shauna O'Donnell recently caught up with Johnny Christ and spoke with him about the recording of "Nightmare", the bands upcoming album. When asked about the darkness that enveloped the recording sessions after the death of their drummer, Johnny stated "Absolutely, musically we had already decided a year ago when we started writing the record that we wanted a darker, heavier record than our previous one. I think we were ready to do that and musically we were pretty much there. We were going to write a concept record and Shadows had the idea of what the concept was going to be. It was going to be pretty dark. Everything kind of changed after the music was completely written because Jimmy passed. That kind of changed everything and took a dark record to an even darker place. He didn't change any of the music, but all of the lyrics were very much changed and very emotional. When we got into the studio, each individual person was in their own emotional way captured on this record. None of us were very happy so it came out pretty dark I think."
