After much teasing for the follow-up to Nightmare, Avenged Sevenfold have finally started revealing more about their new album. Now we know that it will be released on August 27th this year. It will be called Hail To The King and the cover artwork unveiled can be seen below.

Hail To The King was produced by Mike Elizondo and will also mark the first album featuring drummer Arin Ilejay. To celebrate the release of the album, Avenged Sevenfold will perform a free concert at the Hollywood Palladium on August 26th in Los Angeles. An European tour is slated for the end of the year with special guests Five Finger Death Punch and Device.

Personally I really dislike the cover and the album title font

This might not be an original comment, but... This cover sucks.

It's a comic book cover. I wouldn't mind if it's a track listing for The Superman or Batman comic movies.

Me too.


Also... Carry On sounded a little bit like Power Metal. This cover looks like Power Metal too.
I'll just wait for it... I really like some stuff I listened from them recently.

"This is how the story begins... in the dark dark town, there was a dark dark street. In the dark dark street, there was a dark dark house. In the dark dark house, there were dark dark stairs. And down the dark dark stairs, there was a dark dark cellar, and in the dark dark cellar, some skeletons lived!"

Sorry, that was what immediately I thought of when I saw that cover... lol

Personally, I think it's better than when they try to act all evil and stuff. Nightmare, for instance.

Hmmm they actually decided to stop ripping off Overkill's mascot and instead decided to rip off Lich King's mascot.

Crappy cartoony I agree... this band could be much better since the vox are good but they just don't play any music I like except for when they cover other band's songs.

The new album stuff won't be anything like it. They are going for a stripped down groove orientated album.

They say that, but the snippets on the website have brass and some choir chants included. Sounds interesting though. Also, the production is much better than nightmare. Guitars actually sound chunky, as opposed to the fluff that was Nightmare.

I think the lyrical content will be interesting this time around, less emo-y. A song called All Hail Andronikos, which seems like it'll be about some Byzantine Emperor.

Also, the artwork is super video gamey. Not surprised, the majority of news related to them recently has been related to video games.

They're just advertising the music to their 10 year old fan base.

To be honest this looks familiar to me
