Avenged Sevenfold - Hail to the King

Hail to the King is the upcoming 6th studio album by one of my favorite band, Avenged Sevenfold, and also the name of the first single.


I think they take a different direction again with this song. But they haven't release the entire album so I can't make comment about the changes in their music. Overall I think this is a good song. My only complaint is that the guitar solo sounds a little bit lame considering Synyster Gates had made many better guitar solo than this. This is also the first time I heard Arin Ilejay's drum play even though he already become Avenged Sevenfold's touring drummer and has recorded 2 songs with them.

This is the lyrics of the song (credit to lyricsty.com):

Watch your tongue I'll have it cut from your head
Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid
Children roam the streets now orphans of war
Bodies hanging in the streets to adore

Royal fames will carve a path in chaos
Bringing daylight to the night
Death is riding in the town with armor
They've come to take all your rights

Hail to the King
Hail to the One
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun
Hail to the King
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/avenged-sevenfold-hail-to-the-king-lyrics.html ]
Blood is spilt while holding keys to the throne
Born again but it's too late to atone
No mercy from the edge of the blade
Dare escape and learn the price to be paid

Let the water flow with shades of red now
Arrows black out all the light
Death is riding in the town with armour
They've come to grant you your rights

Hail to the King
Hail to the One
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun
Hail to the King

There's a taste of fear
When the henchmen call
Iron fist to tame them 
Iron fist to claim it all

Hail to the King
Hail to the One
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun

Hail to the King
Hail to thw One
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun

Hail to the King
