Avenged Sevenfold turn up as performing characters in the new ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ video game, but there have been a few people suggesting that late drummer The Rev also makes a guest appearance as a grainy figure in the balcony. However, singer M. Shadows says that any likeness to their drummer was purely unintentional and was not something they signed off on.

He told Kerrang, “I’ve seen people saying this. The possibility of adding The Rev was mentioned, but it would have been too weird. Really, the last thing we would want to do is include him in something that he obviously has no say in. By this stage, we’re all about moving on. We love and miss The Rev, but it just wouldn’t feel right or appropriate to put him in the game.”

In addition to the game, Avenged Sevenfold are currently in the process of working on a new record. Shadows says, “I’m incredibly proud of what we’re preparing. I know that in my heart of hearts what we’re working on is something special and we can stand tall behind this new music for the next year and however long.”

The rocker adds, “There’s no point in going out there on the road and putting all your energy into something if you don’t believe in it wholeheartedly. What’s inspiring is how into this everyone is and how fired up we all are about making a kick ass new record.”

The group added Arin Illejay on drums during the latter half of supporting their ‘Nightmare’ album, and Shadows reveals that Illejay has been involved in the writing process.
