Asking Alexandria's Ben Bruce: "Hail to the King is amazing! We're good friends with those guys, and..."

ARTISTdirect has asked members of some bands what they thought about Avenged Sevenfold and Hail To The King:

Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria: Hail to the King is amazing! It's one of my favorite records of last year. I still listen to that record probably every day. They stay true to what they are. They've been finding their feet over the last couple of years. We're good friends with those guys, and I know they're huge fans of Guns N' Roses, Mötley Crüe, and Metallica—same as we are. I think they managed to create a record that encompasses all of those things but doesn't directly rip them off. It's a modern interpretation of a Guns N' Roses album or a Metallica album, which is really cool.
