Experience Disturbed's "The Sound of Silence" in Virtual Reality

Disturbed's "The Sound of Silence" is coming to virtual reality. The band has released a new, 360-degree video for their hit cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic, which you can watch through the VR app Littlstar. Directed by Matt Mahurin, the VR video for "The Sound of Silence" delves deeper into the motifs of technology and dystopia. "It was a thrill and a challenge (and maybe a bit ironic) to use the innovative and immersive world of VR to explore the disconnect of direct human connection that results from the addictive world of social media," says Mahurin in a…

Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows Explains Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cameo on "The Stage"

Avenged Sevenfold released an entire new album called The Stage Friday morning, but that's not where the surprises ended. For example, the 15-minute closing track "Exist" features a cameo from none other than famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. "The song came from the idea of wanting to replicate the Big Bang in a heavy-metal sort of way," frontman M. Shadows tells Rolling Stone of "Exist." "Like, 'OK, this is what it would have sounded like when this happened!' It's like a huge classical piece." Shadows originally conceived "Exist" as an instrumental, but guitarist Synyster Gates suggested the song should feature at least some…
