Citizens! If the message hasn't been clear enough already, the King of Kings above all Kings ruling in the realm of Kings has decided to speak directly to his flock and let them know that "THE KING WELCOMES YOU TO AVATAR COUNTRY!"
This beautiful truth shall shine upon the faces of those who follow the Majestic March to Immortality in the latest and greatest so-called "MUSIC VIDEO" with the Mighty Conqueror of Hearts and Land Alike and His orchestra, AVATAR.
Directed by longtime collaborator Johan Carlén, this is the third music video we've heard from the King with AVATAR from His new record titled Avatar Country.
Avatar released their seventh, and most Royal, full length, Avatar Country earlier this year via Entertainment One. The LP debuted at #2 Indie, #4 Hard Music, #8 Rock, and #25 on the Billboard 200 Chart.
Critics praised the release as well. NEW NOISE MAGAZINE said Avatar Country was
"the culmination of the group’s evolution into a singular powerhouse, a trip into the heart of what makes metal so distinctively powerful."
LOUDWIRE called the opening track "Glory To Our King" sounds like
"it could’ve come straight off of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club, a warm and over the top introduction to the rest of the album."
And finally, METAL INJECTION called Avatar Country "a wonderful ride."
AVATAR will embark on a stretch of European dates this summer including some notable festivals along the way. ROCK AM RING, DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL UK, PARIS andGRASPOP just to name a few.
