Halloween come early: Avenged Sevenfold take on a Misfits classic with their cover of “Hybrid Moments”

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on October 1, 2021

The trio of Zacky Vengeance, Johnny Christ and Brooks Wackerman drop a seasonal surprise with a spot on rendition of the punk rock staple.

While the news on the Avenged Sevenfold front has yet to include some information about the band’s long-awaited full length album that continues to keep fans salivating, the band did offer something special to get into the spirit of the season.

The trio of  Zacky Vengeance, Johnny Christ and drummer Brooks Wackerman managed to get together, dawning their own variation of the iconic Misfits esthetic, and got to work on a cover of the punk rock classic in Mistfits’; “Hybrid Moments”. Among the more impressive elements of the band’s rendition is Zacky Vengeance’s ability to channel Glenn Danzig in a vocal performance that is spot the f*ck on.

“We wanted to have a little fun with you to kick off the Halloween Season,” Vengeance shared of the surprise release. “Brooks wanted to do a Misfits song. I wanted to paint my face like KISS and call ourselves the KISSFits and Johnny wanted to drink and walk around town dressed like a skeleton. I forgot to paint my face like KISS. We still kept it punk rock and spooky for ya! Enjoy!!”

The Misfits tribute marks the second time in recent months that the band has dabbled in the punk spectrum. The band was participated in the 2021 iteration of the NoFX reworked classic of “Linoleum” with the update version of “Linewleum” off the band’s Fat Wreck release, Single Album.

As for A7x, the forecast is looking like new music is slated to arrive sometime in 2022. In the meantime, MISFITS!
