Avenged Sevenfold's M Shadows Explains The Stage Video Concept

(Classic Rock) Avenged Sevenfold's M Shadows has described the "humanistic" message behind their video for The Stage. Lifted from their album of the same name, the promo features a puppet show illustrating war and persecution throughout history, from prehistoric times and medieval witch-hunting through to the first and second world wars. The vocalist suggests that the human race has failed to learn from its bloody history.

He tells OC Register: "The video alludes to somebody watching over us, watching us kill each other over senseless things and not understanding each other. As soon as it gets to a certain point there's a push of a button and the simulation starts over, like we can't figure it out and that's more of a humanistic view, like why can't we just treat each other better?

"We're all here and we just do the same things to each other over and over, whether it's dropping bombs on each other or beating each other with sticks. That's what it's really about. It's not meant to be a political endorsement of any candidate or whatever else people want to talk about in YouTube comments." Read more and watch the video here.
