It may be hard to believe, but heavy metallers Avenged Sevenfold have released a cover of a popular Mexican folk song. ‘Malagueña Salerosa (La Malagueña)’ gets the full A7X treatment, and also features lead vocalist M. Shadows singing in Spanish.
Though ‘Malagueña Salerosa (La Malagueña)’ has been heavily covered literally hundreds of times by both Mexican and non-Mexican artists, now including Avenged Sevenfold of course, it’s not confirmed who the original composer and performer of the song is.
You can stream and listen to the track below:
The song is an additional track that has been added to the band’s most recent full-length effort, ‘The Stage’.
They’re expected to provide an additional 7 tracks to the album in total, 6 being covers and 1 being an unfinished original track intended for the initial album release, all of which will be released periodically over the coming months.
The band’s most seventh studio album, ‘The Stage’, is out now through Capitol Records.
