Avenged Sevenfold 's admiration for Metallica is no secret, as frontman M. Shadows recently made clear to U.K.'s Metal Hammer .

With its just-released video for the title track to  Hail to the King , Avenged Sevenfold borrows a page from Metallica's successful visual playbook. The clip features striking imagery and performance footage in black-and-white, the same approach Metallica used for "The Unforgiven."

Avenged Sevenfold's new album is due August 27 as a standard release and as a limited-edition box set. The band is scheduled to begin a stretch of headlining U.S. tour dates on October 3 in Chicago.
