Avenged Sevenfold Announce Album 'Hail to the King'
Avenged Sevenfold have revealed all the juicy details of their next album "Hail to the King," which will be released on August 27. Fans discovered the album name and artwork, which you can see below, in an online scavenger hunt which led them across the internet to different pieces of the puzzle. The band returned to producer Mike Elizondo who also worked on 2010's chart-topping "Nightmare" album. Describing the sound of the new record, frontman M. Shadows said: "The new album has a lot more of a [Black] Sabbath / [Led] Zeppelin feel to it than 'Carry On' [their contribution to the latest Call of Duty soundtrack]. There's definitely more Sabbath in what we're writing, and we're proud of 'Carry On', but this album is going to be on a whole new level." It's the first album to be written entirely without drummer James "the Rev" Sullivan, their lead songwriter, who died in 2009, which the band accept has pushed them in a different direction. "We had a decision to make on this one," said Shadows. "The decision was, okay, do we just make a record that everyone expects us to make, or do we just move forward and make another, different record that we feel more comfortable with, and we chose the latter. So right now we're looking forward to doing something new and exciting and fresh, and hopefully people give it a shot and like it." See the Avenged Sevenfold artwork for "Hail to the King" here:
