We’ve heard the demand and are happy to announce that “Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough” will be made available for the very first time on digital streaming services. “Diamonds in the Rough” will be available on February 7 and will feature five additional songs including the previously unreleased “Set Me Free,” recorded during the “Hail to the King” sessions. “Set Me Free” is out now. “Diamonds in the Rough” will also be released on limited edition clear vinyl which is available in a very limited quantity of “Diamonds in the Rough” deluxe merch boxes. “Live in the LBC” will be released on March 6th. Both are available for pre-order/pre-save now – “Diamonds in the Rough” here and “Live in the LBC” here. Also just released at A7XWorld.com are decorative pillows and Deathbat travel cups.

Avenged Sevenfold co-founder and singer M. Shadows explains, “It’s very typical of musicians to write 20 to 30 songs for a particular album. Most of the time, they take the best of the bunch and call it a day, discarding the rest. We have never written like that. We don’t usually finish songs unless they are fulfilling a purpose. The one exception to this was during the self-titled era. We were experimenting with our sound, producing ourselves and we had no one to reel us in. Eventually, the unreleased songs from these sessions were released under the name Diamonds in the Rough. We’ve heard the demand from many fans that want to stream the album and we wanted to make it special. So, we have remastered the album and added some hard to find tracks. We even found an unreleased track from the Hail to the King sessions that we think you will enjoy.”

Hail to the King Lyrics

'Hail To The King'
Watch your tongue or have it cut from your
Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid
Children roam the streets now orphans of
Bodies hanging in the streets to adore
Royal faith will carve the path in...

    I thought this was an actual Christian song about praising God.

    A song about the people yearning to bring back and greet the coming Christian king to rule in the name of God's son Jesus Christ in the near future. In order to save our Western society that has been polluted and corrupted by the ungodly intellectual illuminated illuminaries, working with the old Bolshevik communist, Zionist Nazi slave driven mentality, that has been used on us with the throat cutters now, to create and accomplish their agenda for the one world order rule, who calls themselves the globalists. That are against hailing to the coming of the king, like they have always been, and now who likes for us to be against the Christian 'czar' Vladimir Putin that are demonizing him like he is the new Hitler to scapegoat for war, and don't want to be surfing themselves to 'Hail To The King' and serve God.

    The song is not about a tyrant king. Because even after the the rebellion of the people in that interpretation happens they still hail to the king. I think the song is about the second comming of the messiah. Every interpretation I have come across that says otherwise leaves out the part about being born again but it's to late to atone. There are so many other correlations to be made with him being referred to as the king, the one, standing in the sun or the light. The bad has references to god in there songs all the time this is no different.

    This is a Clear Depiction and Story of Julius Caesar and his Accomplishments. Kaiser which a title meaning ruler or King derived from Caesar. Hail to the King.

    It's a long shot but I think of this song as the rein of Hitler.
    'Watch your tongue or have it cut from your head'
    Those who opposed Hitler were suppressed in violent ways.
    This song is clearly about a tyrant king who suppressed opposition. It's an idea, but it's probably not about him especially coming from a band like this.

    My interpretation is like others have said, about a tyrant king, but the ending shows something dark not sure if it's death or the devil! But the song is badass!

    i'm not 200% but I think that the song is about a Tyrant king who is suppressing the common folk in a time of war

    Hail to the King is an occult song. It's referencing Saturn which rules death, decay, slowness, cold, sharpness, rings, winter, grief, solemnity and time.
    'Watch your tongue or have it cut from your head' - Saturn is a very serious entity. He doesn't joke or love. As the angel Cassiel who governs Saturn once said, 'I leave love to others.'
    'Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid' - Saturn is quiet which is manifest in winter silence for example. So this line is saying respect Saturn and rest in the stillness.
    'hildren roam the streets, now orphans of war' - War brings about death. Losing one's parents to war brings mourning and grief. All Saturnian characteristics.
    'Bodies hanging in the streets to adore' - Don't fear death, come to terms with it by understanding it's place in life.
    'Royal flames will carve a path in chaos' This carving a path could be a reference to the shape of Saturn's knife, the scythe.
    'Bringing daylight to the night' This line references bringing attention and action to the night which Saturn rules.
    'Death is riding into town with armor,' Pretty clear
    'They've come to take all your rights' You can't have rights if you're dead.
    'Hail to the king,
    hail to the one
    Kneel to the crown,
    stand in the sun
    Hail to the king'
    Saturn is king because he rules time and death. Therefor, let's honor him as king. Also, historically Saturn has always been worshipped and there is even confusion between the Sun and Saturn hence 'Stand in the sun' line. Some believe Saturn was once a sun which undergone a change with cataclysmic consequences on earth. Others believe Saturn always was the planet that the 'sun' referred to.
    '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'
    This refers to the inevitability of death and Saturn's influence on our lives. Saturn strikes us with cold, sharp fear. The blade is another reference to the Scythe. Saturn doesn't do love so if you try to escape his grasp, you WILL lose and indeed learn the 'price to be paid' for your arrogance.
    The rest is pretty clear as well. Hope this helps. This is coming from a magician. Additionally, Saturn worship is seen in wedging RINGS, halos above the heads of saints (a reference to Saturn's rings) and countless other customs. It's deep.
    This is coming from a magician who evokes spirits. Honoring them in music is definitely an excellent way to reap the benefits of their office.

    I think this song is about Satan and The Illuminati. When he says watch your mouth ill have it cut from your head I believe that Its the Illuminati saying that if he talks about what they do then they will kill them

    A tyrant king who rules over his subjects with a iron fist who kills all who oppose him it is not about the bible or the second coming.

    this is a song, in my opinion, that is a sarcastic pledge to the leaders of the world. 'These people torture us and are totally disconnected, not concerned with anything but the almighty dollar, but by all means, HAIL TO THE KING!'

    I think the king is death, and the lyrics show how in the end, death triumphs over everything

    This song is about a tyrant king who abused his people and how they are angry with him everything from armour to the sky blackened with arrows describes a Dark ages king who has alust for power it is not Jesus'second coming or the anti Crist or Satan it is a dark ruler like Bloody Mary, king Richard III, or Henry VIII.
