AVENGED SEVENFOLD is working on a video for the song “Shepherd Of Fire” with director Wayne Isham, who has helmed videos for such established artists as METALLICA, MTLEY CRE, SIMPLE PLAN, PANTERA, ‘N SYNC, SHANIA TWAIN, GODSMACK, BRITNEY SPEARS, LEONA LEWIS, PINK FLOYD, SHERYL CROW, JOSS STONE, MADONNA, AVRIL LAVIGNE, DEF LEPPARD and BON JOVI.

Isham previously worked with AVENGED SEVENFOLD on the “Seize The Day”, “Afterlife”, “Nightmare” and “So Far Away” videos.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows told a Canadian radio station that he isn’t bothered by recent comments from MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn, in which Flynn called the band’s new “Hail To The King” CD a “covers album.” Flynn specifically called the band out for songs like “This Means War”, which bears a strong resemblance to METALLICA‘s “Sad But True”, along with others.

Shadows told the Ottawa station, “I have met Robb on numerous occasions and he’s always been cool to me. And I just read it as a joke . . . I really don’t know what to say about it other than I agree with him on the ‘Sad But True’ thing — that was obviously an inspiration for that song. Everything else, I kind of think he . . . If it is a joke, it was kind of overboard, ’cause it doesn’t make sense in my mind.”

Shadows added, “Some people might see it as being as an underhanded . . . joke. But, to me, if he just wants to go in there and write whatever he wants, I think that’s totally cool. Everyone has an opinion and everyone should be entitled to say whatever they want. So it’s no skin off our backs.”

Flynn didn’t pull any punches in his critique, writing, “Congratulations to AVENGED SEVENFOLD on their latest ‘covers album’ coming in at #1, who knew that re-recording METALLICA, GUNS N ROSES, and MEGADETH songs could be such a worldwide hit!!?? Ba-dap Psssssss!!”

Asked if the bands Flynn mentioned were influences, Shadows replied, “I think all the bands he said we were very inspired by. I think also [BLACK] SABBATH, [LED] ZEPPELIN, THE ROLLING STONES.”

“Hail To The King” sold 159,000 copies in its first week of release, giving the California band their second straight chart-topper after 2010’s “Nightmare”.

Next up for AVENGED SEVENFOLD is its first major tour in support of the new CD, which starts October 3 in Chicago.

Thank you for putting heavy metal back on the throne. We look forward to growing old with you.”

Congrats to the Avenged lads! We’ll see you in a few months time.

It’s close…but who’s gonna be smiling come Sunday?

Earlier this week we reported that Avenged Sevenfold were set to land their first ever UK number one album with Hail To The King. Today we’ve been informed that current number two album – garage/r’n’b newcomer Naughty Boy’s Hotel Cabana – is making up some serious ground on Hail To The King, meaning that this could be the closest battle the UK album charts have seen so far this year.

With just over a day left, who’s gonna make a little bit of history? Will Avenged hold on? We guess we’ll just have to wait until Sunday to find out…

Avenged Sevenfold are currently on course to notch up their first ever UK Number 1 album! Hail To The King looks set to knock some dudes from Britain’s Got Talent off the top spot after having dominated it for a month straight.

The album was released earlier this week.
