We all love a good cover song, this week’s best is an unexpected one – Avenged Sevenfold have given their own spin on “God Only Knows” originally released by The Beach Boys in 1966.
Lead singer, M Shadows shared this was the most difficult of their large catalog of covers to date, in terms of figuring out the best arrangement.
“Of all these new songs we’ve recorded, this one was the most difficult in terms of figuring out an arrangement. Figuring out the middle vocal melodies was also challenging. We wanted to make the song a little darker by adding a flanger and some haunting vocal nuances. The Beach Boys have always been an influence, so it was fun to tackle this one from arguably the best album of all time, ‘Pet Sounds.’”
The band did a fantastic job, check it out below!
