Avenged Sevenfold have confirmed that they will be in the studio next month to record the follow-up album to their 2010 album 'Nightmare'

Singer M Shadows confirmed to NME that their sixth album is almost ready to record: "This album's a little more groove orientated," he said. "There's a little bit more groove to it, a little bit more focused on bigger riffs. So that's where it's headed – every song has gotta have a huge riff and every song has to have a groove to it."

The California metallers have also written a new song called 'Carry On', which appears on Call Of Duty Black Ops II and features the band performing the song as digital characters during the end credits.

Speaking about the game, M Shadows revealed that the band were "really honoured to be made into, you know, immortalised on a video game". He added: "At the same time, it's really cool that it's on the Call Of Duty game 'cause we're big fans of the game."
