Avenged Sevenfold - Hail To The King Review

Hail To The King is A7X sixth studio album, the first full album after the death of their drummer,  James "The Rev" Sullivan. Not counting Nightmare because he did write parts that were used for the final recordings.


And this album doesn't disappoint! Shepherds of Fire starts off the album and the guitars come up and launch into a stylish and classic example of what Avenged Sevenfold does best. In this album the drum beats are catchy and Synyster Gates solo is fiery and masterfully executed. While it is definitely a departure from the past styles.

Overall, this is a creatively constructed and entertaining album and the right direction for them to go in. If you don't like it at first, sit back and play it a few times because it will grow on you with every listen.It has re-affirmed A7X as the new gods of metal, something which the music scene desperately need.
