    Could St. James be that acoustic song that was supposedly leaked from their site? I cannot find the link to it, however. Does anybody know what I’m talking about? It kind of sounded like Zacky singing… even if it wasn’t I still liked the song. I’m probably way off here though.

    So Hail to the King comes out on the 21st of August in Argentina. Right now in Argentina it is August 20th 7:35pm. So in five hours, assuming they get it right at midnight, will they have access to St James? I wanna hear it.

    To be honest it was a bit of a disappointment for me.. It had 2good songs 2 decent and the rest was just way out of normal from A7X.. :s and everybody always thought that now is gonna be the time they take us back to Waking the Fallen and City of Evil. It is still worth a listen and give it your own opinion. i would rate the album for something around 5-6 out of 10

    Man this is Metalicas best album yet!! Wait… Crimson day is Nothin else matters. This means war is sad but true. The only song that sounds like A7X is doing time and that song is week. Come on now. You already got in trouble for stealing Overkills logo, then in trouble for the album work for this album looking too much like Lich Kings. There should be a cat symbol instead of A7X for copy Cats!

      You only compared 2 of 11 songs to Metallica (and honestly if you’re a fan of either you’d know they aren’t all that similar) yet you say it sounds like a Metallica album?
      Also, Overkill didn’t create the winged skull; google new england tombstones and you’ll see plenty.
      I find it funny how you commented trying to come off as a smart ass and end up looking ignorant as hell.

    Since others have done this, I suppose I will. I give the album a 9/10. I think it’s by far their best work. I actually after listening about 6 times think Hail to the King was the weakest song. And I think it’s a great song, so that’s saying something.
    Shepherd of fire- when it comes to intro songs I think this really continued the trend that avenged had for having great Intros. Do I like it more than previous album Intros? I would have to see it live to tell. A great song. Syns solo is awesome, I love it here.
    Hail to the king- a solid song through and through. Gives a good example of how the album was going to sound when it was the single we only had.
    Doing time- reminds me of demons off diamonds in the rough. I’m not entirely wild about his vocals through the chorus but I love the rest of the song and love the energy. It’s growing on me.
    This means war- yes, it has a fair amount of similarity to sad but true it had beginning and rift parts, but this song is one of the better ones. Great solo, and Matt’s voice shows it’s power.
    Requiem- this song has power all through it. I love how syns solo comes in. The choir is awesome. Again, well written and done well by every member.
    Crimson day- a solid song. It reminds me a little of So far away. Not much to say, but it doesn’t really need a lot said about it.
    Heretic- I don’t think this song gets as much love. I personally love Matt’s voice and like how it does have an older sevenfold sound ( CoE). Listen to this a couple times, it’s great.
    Coming home- this is a song that many people have picked to be their favorite and for good reason; this is a really upbeat song that to me is a polar opposite of crossroads lyrics with that it has what seems to be a religious twist in the second verse. This is just an enthusiastic song with great emotion.
    Planets- one of my favorites. It’s just a terrifying evil awesome sounding song. It reminds me of an epic battle ( which is what they were going for ) the orchestra parts are welcomed as always.
    Acid rain – pure emotion. Almost made me cry when I first heard it, I thinks lyrically it’s one of Matt’s best songs. A truly epic ending to this album.

      The last 3 songs of HTTK blew my head off… That’s the best and most amazing way to finish a great album. They’re just fuckin’ epic…
      That’s my opinion… :)
      Any questions? :D

    I honestly wasn’t expecting a song from this album to be my favorite Avenged song of all time. Acid Rain is just an absolutely incredible song and major props goes to Matt for his voice range on this song.

    St. James is out. I’d trade into the album for Doing Time. It’s upbeat and a good closure song for the Rev. Not “heavy”, but still pretty solid. Has more of that Avenged feel from older albums. Really dig it.

    Shepherd of Fire – 9.5/10

    (Love the lyrics and the intro is insane. When I listen to this I think that the “Shepherd of fire” is in fact Satan. Matt also sings “I´ve got a storybook of my own.” A real slap in the face for many hardcore christians, love it! :P)

    Hail to the King – 8/10

    (I´ve played this track thousands of times and it´s still amazing, not many tracks can pull that of for me, I keep coming back for more)

    Doing Time – 8.5/10

    (It´s a casual but upfront powersong and I love the low vocals which Matt pulls of very well, the solo is amazing as well, nicely done by Gates)

    This Means War – 7.5/10

    (I´ve not really given this track a fair chance yet, but as I feel now I can only give it 7.5 as a score, which is damn low for this album since it´s probably the best album I´ve heard in a long while)

    Requiem – 7.5/10

    (Just as with This Means War, I´ve been so busy with listening to the other tracks which are a tiny bit more amusing to my ears, however, the intro, verse and stick are top notch)

    Crimson Day – 9/10

    (I love Avenged Sevenfold´s slower balladlike songs, the melodies and vocals are always a pleasure to listen to, the lyrics in this song seriously touches my heart, very well done)

    Heretic – 7/10

    (Judging by you other guys here I might be the weird one when it comes to Requiem, This Means War and Heretic. Misunderstand me right… Heretic is an amazing track that I (as a songwriter) can´t pull off just yet but it is, for me, the weakest track on the record)

    Coming Home 9.5/10

    (The strongest chorus on the record for sure, the lyrics give me a feeling of hope and “trust”. The outro gives me the chills every time I listen to this song)

    Planets – 9/10

    (Matt really release his powers in this chorus, PLAAANEETS COOOOLIIIIIIDE! It gives me shivers and the orchestra really isn´t a bad move for this song, I love it when classical instruments meet with metal. F*cking genious)

    Acid Rain – 10/10

    (This is probably the best Matt has ever been when it comes to lyrics, this song is truly a masterpiece. In my top 5 songs of all time for sure. When I listen to this song I tend to close my eyes and just enjoy the crap out of every second of Hail to the Kings last song. The ending so beautifully matches with the intro of Shepherd of Fire. When you loop the album listen to the rain in Acid Rain´s ending and then the crackling fire in Shepherd of Fire´s intro. Amazing)

    Album rating: 10/10

    The best album that the music showbizz has seen in a very long time.

    • Ix_DrYCeLL_xI
      August 23, 2013 at 12:05 am

      Adding up and dividing your total yields an 8.5 out of 10. Confused how you only rate one song as a 10/10 but give the entire album that score…. I really feel like this album is an 8.5/10, so I can agree with the conclusion your individual reviews total out to.

      • Jonathan
        August 23, 2013 at 12:15 pm

        I rated the album and tracks individually. All the tracks are amazing just that the album starts of with an amazing intro and ends with 3 superb tracks and that needs to be complimented :)

    August 22, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Well, now that St. James is out, I think I can put my albums in order from favorite to least favorite…
    Self titled > Nightmare > Diamonds In The Rough > City Of Evil > Waking The Fallen > Sounding The Seventh Trumpet > Hail To The King
    Other than Planets and maybe Coming Home, there aren’t that many memorable songs on this album. Each of the other albums has at least three memorable songs to me, this one just doesn’t have that many. And no, I’m not hating on the band as I’m a big fan, I’m just giving my honest opinion.

    • ray petero
      August 22, 2013 at 8:00 pm

      Now why did I get a down vote? I’m not saying the album was bad, its just definitely not my favorite from them.

        August 22, 2013 at 8:04 pm

      • Daniel
        August 22, 2013 at 9:42 pm

        I felt a bit like that at first too but after listening to the album a few times, some songs have grown on me and I think, as a whole, the album is great.

        August 23, 2013 at 12:09 am

        Why do so many people care about downvotes so much? I’ve seen at least 3 people complain about getting them. Who freakin’ cares? Besides, I’d downvote you too for ranking the White album as their best work, and both Waking the Fallen and Hail to the King in the lower half of their work, and City of Evil below Diamonds in the Rough.

        • StenchySlothNipples
          August 23, 2013 at 12:12 am

          Well when you got some asshole downvoting every comment solely based on the fact that they don’t like Avenged Sevenfold period, then it merits people complaining about it.

          • Ix_DrYCeLL_xI
            August 23, 2013 at 3:34 am

            So what? They aren’t in the conversation, and you are letting something so petty get in the way of enjoying a very solid album. With how badly this band is trolled by haters, the fact this thread is only drawing people who clock arrows instead of posting hateful nonsense is amazing.

          • StenchySlothNipples
            August 23, 2013 at 3:47 am

            So the fuck what. You are doing the same damned thing by commenting “why do you care so much? God that’s so petty.” Practice what you preach please.

          • Ix_DrYCeLL_xI
            August 23, 2013 at 4:38 am

            Because the whining about it annoys me. No one’s opinion is above criticism and if you don’t like someone’s opinion, DEAL WITH IT. It’s complaining for absolutely no reason, whilst I am complaining because those silly “wah wah why did I get downvoted” take up space and add absolutely nothing to the conversations about this album.

          • StenchySlothNipples
            August 23, 2013 at 4:51 am

            And are your “why do you even care” posts adding to the conversations of the album? NO. So shut the fuck up already and stop bitching about what others have said. Your not helping, and neither is this pointless argument.

          • Ix_DrYCeLL_xI
            August 23, 2013 at 5:01 am

            You are the one who made an argument about this. You are the one that gives a damn about stupid votes. Over the course of time, if people dropped complaining because of downvotes because it was called out as stupid, the benefit outweighs the cost.

          • StenchySlothNipples
            August 23, 2013 at 5:06 am

            Nope. Someone said “I love how they went with an older metal feel with this album.” And of course some asstard downvotes it. I say “Who downvoted this?” BOOM here comes lx_DrYCeLL_xl with his “Why do you care? This is so petty. I have seen three people complain of this. OMG why do people care OMG OMG OMG this is so petty”

            Morons like you are the reason I hate fandoms so much. You didn’t make any new point here and resorted to name calling. Now you are just wasting my time, schmuck. Have fun not ever agreeing with people and getting in stupid fights that share your opinion on the real reason we’re all here. Later, punk.

          • StenchySlothNipples
            August 23, 2013 at 6:13 am

            Okay, clearly neither of our arguments were constructive in any way. Resorting to name calling surely wasn’t the way to set my point across, and it really never should in any context. Being that we are both fans of Avenged Sevenfold, I’m assuming, let’s just stop this feeble argument because there is no real purpose to it. Fans shouldn’t bicker about the most exiguous of things. Sorry.

        because this album is definitely better than sounding the seventh trumpet and diamonds in the rough. I personally think diamonds is the worst and sounding the seventh trumpet comes right after that.
