Title: “The King Wants You” (Single)
Label: E1 Entertainment
Release Date: 12/19/2017
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
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.
The riff is cool and catchy and I think that the growling chorus will be a solid rallying cry when this song is done in the live sense. I’m impressed for sure and with the show for my region heading here shortly after the 2018 Bell rings us in, I’m going to try and be on point for it. I had to say that I loved the art for the single as well since it slightly resembles the old Uncle Sam posters with the “I Want You” motif. You’d do well to stand proud and to attention when your King seeks his audience with you and if some clarification on the public appearances is still needed please refer to these noted events on THIS LINK.
