AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s sixth album, “Hail To The King”, sold 159,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on August 27 via Warner Bros.

The band’s fifth album, “Nightmare”, also landed at the top of the chart after selling 162,500 units back in August 2010.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s self-titled fourth album registered a first-week tally of 94,000 copies in November 2007, nearly three times what its 2005 effort, “City of Evil”, sold in its biggest week on the chart.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows said a few months back that the sound of the new CD was channeling earlier records from acts like PANTERA, METALLICA, BLACK SABBATH and others, and he told The Pulse Of Radio again just recently that the band was aiming for an older feel. “We said, ‘Well, why don’t we make a record that we would want to listen to today, that sounds like a late ’90s or before record?'” he said. “And then we said production-wise we’ve got to make it sound like one of those records. We’ve got to have the big guitars, the huge drums that are over the top, and just like the punch that those records gave you. So what I would say is that this is a record in 2013 that reminds me of like an early ’90s or before type metal record.”

“Hail To The King” is AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s first full album written and recorded without drummer and charter member James “The Rev” Sullivan, who died in December 2009 during the early stages of writing for “Nightmare”.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently notched the fifth No. 1 single of the band’s career as the song “Hail To The King” reached the top of the Active Rock radio chart.

The band will begin a fall headlining North American tour on October 3 in Chicago, concluding on October 26 in Las Vegas. Support on the road trip will come from DEFTONES and GHOST.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD took part in a question-and-answer session earlier today (Tuesday, August 27). The session, which was hosted by Nicole Alvarez of the Los Angeles radio station KROQ, took place at the Warner Bros. Records Patio in Burbank, California and is now available for viewing below.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently notched the fifth No. 1 single of the band’s career with “Hail To The King”, the title track of its newly released album. What sets AVENGED SEVENFOLD apart from a number of other current rock acts is that they have not used outside songwriters to help them write songs for the radio. In fact, singer M. Shadows told The Pulse Of Radio it never occurred to them. “I didn’t even know many rock bands used other writers,” he said. “I knew they did in the past — I knew Alice Cooper used to and, you know, AEROSMITH would use other writers. Coming from Warped Tour and the punk rock background that we came from, it never even crossed our mind. To us, it’s like, we try to create our art, and if we don’t have that creative outlet and it’s not working, I’d rather just wait it out until something that we want to say and we want to put down comes. But bringing in another writer never, ever crossed our mind.”

“Hail To The King”, the band’s sixth studio album, arrived on August 27.

The CD is AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s follow-up to 2010’s chart-topping “Nightmare”.
