Avenged Sevenfold, ‘Hail to the King’ – Best 2013 Rock Songs
Avenged Sevenfold have a knack for spinning a web of vivid imagery through their lyrics, and the title track from their upcoming disc ‘Hail to the King’ certainly keeps up with that that tradition of rich storytelling. The song paints an epic tale of the chaos and devastation of war.
A7X have gone on record to say their disc of the same name was strongly influenced this time around by metal titans like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, adding a classic tone to the recording, but at the end of the day the song is Avenged Sevenfold through and through. Huge riffs complemented by an infectious chorus delivered by M. Shadows, ‘Hail to the King’ is destined to be a king-size hit.
