Avenged Sevenfold are riding high with their current single 'Hail to the King,' the title track off their highly anticipated new album, due Aug. 27. Now, the band has unleashed an official music video to accompany the track.

The clip (watch above), features scenes of singer M. Shadows and the crew performing the song in black and white interspersed with regal and medieval shots that coincide with the lyrics of the tune. The powerful track recalls elements of Metallica in both Shadows' voice and its musicality.

As stated, the album 'Hail to the King' drops Aug. 27. A7X will play a free show on Aug. 26 at the Hollywood Palladium to celebrate its release. The band will then embark on a fall trek with Deftones and Ghost B.C. Check out the full list of dates by clicking below:
