Avenged Sevenfold Top UK Albums Chart: 'It's a Monumental Achievement'
Avenged Sevenfold have officially topped the UK Albums Chart with their latest record "Hail to the King," scoring a first ever No. 1 debut in the United Kingdom. After battling Naughty Boy and their "Hotel Cabana" effort, California metallers ultimately triumphed, knocking "Britain's Got Talent" duo Richard and Adam off the top position. "It has been a hell of a ride thus far and having our first number 1 album in the UK is a monumental achievement for our fans and us," guitarist Zacky Vengeance told Official Charts. "I remember playing the 100 Club to prove to our fans we were willing to start from the ground up again to earn your respect." The axeman concluded, "Thank you for putting heavy metal back on the throne. We look forward to growing old with you." As the official chart info confirms, it's been a fairly successful week for the rockers, as legendary Bob Dylan also scored a No. 5 debut with "Another Self Portrait - 1969 - 1971." Right after Dylan, Franz Ferdinand landed at No. 6 with "Right Thoughts Right Words Right Action." "Hail to the King" was released on August 27 via Warner Bros. as the sixth A7X studio effort. Featuring a total of 10 tunes, the album is now available for streaming in full via group's Soundcloud page. You can also check out the title track video here.
So have you checked out the record yet? And what do you think about metal being back on the throne? Let us know in the comments.
