Ernie Ball Podcast: Striking A Chord with Synyster Gates
STRIKING A CHORD WITH SYNYSTER GATES
In this episode of Striking A Chord, we speak to Avenged Sevenfold guitarist, Synyster Gates. Forming in their senior year of high school Avenged Sevenfold went from teenage garage band to one of the most successful American heavy metal outfits at the turn of the century. Selling an estimated eight million copies across their seven studio albums, the Huntington Beach natives have challenged the traditional genre, fusing aggressive metal, hard rock, and pop punk.
Listen as Synyster Gates talks about the importance of being musically adventurous, which albums were crucial in Avenged Sevenfold's trajectory, and much more.
