“Hail To The King” is the title track of AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s new album, which will be released on August 27. The long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s “Nightmare” was once again produced by Mike Elizondo and is the first to be wholly written without drummer and key songwriter James “The Rev” Sullivan, who died in December 2009. Sullivan has since been replaced by Arin Ilejay, a former member of CONFIDE.

“Hail To The King” lyrics:Watch your tongue or 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 flames will carve a path in chaos, bringing daylight to the night Death is riding into 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 Hail, Hail, Hail the King 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 into town with armor, 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 Hail, Hail, Hail the King There’s a taste of fear When the henchmen call Iron fist to tame the land 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, Hail, Hail the King
