Still waiting for my CD to arrive. Nightmare was a pretty awesome album so I hope you're not lying!

The album sounds brilliant, the best sound they had so far production-wise. The performances are exceptional as always and there are a fair few standout tracks (Doin Time!!!) but I think they gave away too much of their own style on this one.
Sounds more like a Metallica or Megadeth album at times. I miss the melodies and the speedier songs and that's why I prefer Nightmare which was brilliant IMO.

I'll give it a few more listens though - maybe it's a grower.

Yeah I thought that. I hear Ride The Lightening and For Whom The Bell Tolls in there for sure. But at least its classic Metallica and not St Anger Metallica! Great album. Listened to Nightmare this morning and I get bored with it. This album though Ive heard 4 times since I got it Weds.

Indeed, with Waking The Fallen a close second

Off of one listen, I don't think I'm going to like Hail To The King as much as Nightmare. It sounds pretty solid (although very Metallica-esque in places), which is kind of the problem - Nightmare came out of genuine sorrow, anger and uncertainty and was a stronger album for it. Hail To The King seems way too commercially minded

... And after many more listens, I stand by what I said!

Going to see them tomorrow, I may not be sold on the album but they're still a great live band so looking forward to it!
