To watch Avenged Sevenfold over the years, it's been fairly clear that this is a band with a plan. With each of their first five albums, A7X steadily evolved, albeit in varying degrees. Tragically, their ascension was harrowingly derailed in December 2009 with the death of their drummer, Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.
In celebration of their new release ‘Hail to the King,’ which hit stores today, Avenged Sevenfold performed a blistering free show last night (Aug. 26) for fans who lined up for tickets last week. The jam-packed Hollywood Palladium on Sunset Strip became nothing short of an A7X religious revival meeting as thousands of fans hung on to and sang every word to most songs, even many of the new ones.
We’ve scored a handful of the coveted limited edition ‘Hail to the King’ box sets to give away to five lucky winners, four through the contest box above and one through a Twitter contest (click below). The monster box set, seen in the contest box above, features a ton of A7X goodies including: a limited edition treasure box, the deluxe version of ‘Hail to the King’ on CD, an exclusive canvas print of the album’s artwork, a photo book of the band, a death bat challenge coin, a death bat skeleton key and digital content.
Brace yourselves, because the internet is about to explode. The near-religious fan base of Avenged Sevenfold is about to flock over to iTunes in vast numbers, as the band's new album 'Hail to the King' is now streaming in full.
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
Avenged Sevenfold’s new disc ‘Hail to the King’ is due out on Aug. 27, with the first single of the same name already making quite an impact. From the sounds of it though, that is only the beginning of what the band has in store for fans in the coming months.
Avenged Sevenfold continue their Cage Match domination with a landslide victory over Alice in Chains. A7X only need one more win to enter the Cage Match Hall of Fame, and this next band boasts a fan base just as rabid as Avenged Sevenfold's.
