“We really got into some of the deeper Rolling Stones tracks during the writing process for ‘Hail To The King,'” says Avenged Sevenfold vocalist M. Shadows. “This song always stood out because of the melody and fragile state of Mick Jagger’s vocal and the interesting string section
in the bridge. We took a more uptempo rock & roll approach and added the sitar as a little nod to the experimentation of the 60s.”
