Avenged Sevenfold - Hail To The King


  • Ganglor

    Kind of wondering if someone in the band does the album artwork and the rest of the guys are too scared to tell him he sucks.

    • whatisyourforte

      it’s scary to think someone disagrees with you.

    • jrr

      lol, that was honestly my reaction as well. Either that or a kid brother or something. I’d hate to think they contracted a professional for that.

  • mythos

    that cover art is godawful

  • whatisyourforte

    The Jackson Pollack-esque paintings I make in the toilet after a chimichanga looks better than this shit.


    That cover art looks like Metal 4 Kids. How appropriate.

    • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

      *sigh* I wish people would stop talking about kids as if they were a plague to a bands fanbase.


        Wu-Tang is for the children.

        You’ll understand when you get older.

  • cma3585

    Bring it.

  • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

    Even I’m starting to care for this band less day by day, I’ll check it out come release but I won’t expect much.

  • RTReaper

    i love the guys, but i must admit, this looks the cover to a disney movie, just hope it doesn’t sound like fantasia

  • My Farts Linger

    I just wish they would stop being pussies and make an album with some actual gonad(s).

    • cma3585

      Must’ve missed their first two. If you think by any means, given their progression and their success, they’re going to suddenly release some massively epicly heavy album at any point again in their career, you may as well spare yourself the disappointment and just give up now.

      • My Farts Linger

        You are wrong in your assumption. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two, thus the reasoning behind my comment. I certainly don’t expect anything from these guys at this point, but it would be nice if they surprised me.

    the artwork for all their records suck. not a surprise that this one is dogshit too.
