Rock out this weekend with the new Avenged Sevenfold album, now streaming for free in iTunes!

Apple is no stranger to offering hot new music releases for free streaming in iTunes ahead of a release, and the latest to get this treatment is the latest album from Avenged Sevenfold. "Hail to the King" is the sixth studio album from the band, and will be available to purchase from iTunes on Monday August 26 in the UK, and an expected day later in the U.S. But, that doesn't stop you rocking out to it ahead of time this weekend.

It's been three years since we last saw a new album from Avenged Sevenfold, with the previous effort, "Nightmare" being supported by an extensive worldwide tour. It's been a long three years for fans of the band – myself included – and so the chance to check it out early is a great addition to a weekend soundtrack.

"Hail to the King" follows the release of a single of the same name – already available in iTunes – and can be streamed for free now through iTunes on your Mac or Windows computer, or through the iTunes Store app on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. I've listened to it most of the afternoon, and I'm impressed. What do you guys think of it?

I could photoshop Richard Devine's avatar picture into that Avenged Sevenfold image above and he would not look out of place.

I can't seem to figure out this streaming thing from my phone. Never done it before, I don't see an option for it and I can only listen to the clip of Hail to the King.

i don't stream music so actually i didn't know they did that. I assumed it was just that new iRadio. learn something new everyday. Still unlikely to stream as i prefer to play mostly my own content.
