PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I’ve only ever seen the group in action once but I love the whole idea about them and find them to be very entertaining. I’m going to do my best to be a part of the Terminal 5 gig in September and will be certain to catch the opening performance of Avatar who I greatly enjoy. That’s a band you need to see as well if you haven’t already. What do you folks think about this news? I hope you are ready to rally for this kawaii band in full force. This will please the Fox God whom they report to. Chime in down below in the comments section.

While we just love the live music scene here at the PiercingMetal High Command, we don’t manage to get to many of the awesome festivals that take place across our own country and abroad. However, since the readership is vast and often reaches way outside of our humble NYC dominion, we make sure to help to raise awareness of what is coming up and that brings me to the news about this years ROCKLAHOMA Festival which as you probably realized will take place in Oklahoma.

“The King Wants You” (Single) by Avatar

Artist: Avatar
Title: “The King Wants You” (Single)
Label: E1 Entertainment
Release Date: 12/19/2017
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
Rating:

With a little over a month to go before the release of “Avatar Country”, Sweden’s Avatar have offered up another single with “The King Wants You” – It follows “A Status Of The King” which was discussed HERE for those who might not have seen it. Clean vocals lead us off with this one and there is an almost Broadway performance vibe to it. What I mean with this is how I could envision it being performed in that setting with the singing being done at the audience as a part of a larger narrative. Fun stuff.
