Avatar is a metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden.
The band was formed in 2001 by drummer John Alfredsson and singer Johannes Eckerström. After a turbulent start, the line up settled in the fall of 2003 and stayed the same for ten years.
On March 11, 2014 it was announced that Avatar's fifth album would be titled Hail the Apocalypse and will be released May 13, 2014 via eOne Music. The album's first single, the title track, will be released March 17, 2014 and will be accompanied by a video according to a March 10 interview with vocalist Johannes Eckerström. The new album is produced by Tobias Lindell and mixed by Jay Ruston.
A word from myself:
really looking forward this album. Seen the guys support Avenged Sevenfold in Europe and they kick ass, really. for those who don’t know them i recommend the following songs:
-Queen of Blades
-Ready for the Ride
-Let it Burn
tommorow’s the release date of the title song from the new album, will post it here :)
first single, Hail The Apocalypse.
For me it’s amazing. Either you love or hate them. Live they’re even better than on CD’s.
