Avenged Sevenfold has sold 8M records globally, wrote theme songs for popular video games, and was even nominated for a Grammy. But issuing their own NFT? That’s probably the last thing their fans expected!

Today, I’m joined by celebrated guitarist Synyster Gates to discuss Avenged’s “Deathbat” NFT. We chat about:

  • How to use NFTs to engage fans
  • How Web 3 can disrupt royalties and streaming
  • Embracing innovation as a metal band
  • Syn’s personal journey in crypto
