Avenged Sevenfold - Hail to the King - Solo

This article is part 47 of 52 in the 2022 music project series.

After my last Avenged Sevenfold solo cover, I got into them a little more. I bought their 2013 album Hail to the King, of which the titular song is quite rad. It's basically Synyster Gates playing sixteenth notes for five minutes; truly an impressive display of stamina.

The solo is also pretty neat, and has a definite neo-classical vibe to it.
