Avenged Sevenfold Hail To The King

So, August 23, I happily bounced up to get my copy of the newest A7X album, Hail To The King… Come on now, you all know you did too. Let’s not pretend I am the only fan girl in the world… I walked out of my favorite record shop, Independent Records, jumped into my truck… ripped the cd open and popped it in. Ok so, I couldn’t wait to take it for a spin. I was THAT excited… 🙂

So it starts playing… The first song is titled “Shepherd of Fire”… reminds me kind of some of the old Metallica stuff… church bells, bad ass guitar rifts… drums a pounding… my body starts moving… I am digging it… M Shadows starts singing… I am thinking, “I can really get into this….”. I continue listening…

Track 2, is the name sake of the album and the first single released… “Hail To The King”. It rocks you from the start.

I sat in the parking lot, mesmerized by this new album…. The final track, “Acid Rain” began to play… I was blown away… simply gorgeous.

  • That was AWESOME! My ears are loving that. I loved old Metallica and I have a feeling I am going to love the rest of the songs on this album if Hail to The King was any indication! 5 stars A7X!
