Avenged Sevenfold Releases ‘This Means War’ Music Video

AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s video for the song “This Means War”  was helmed by Andrew Baird (CAGE THE ELEPHANTCARRIE UNDERWOOD) and was previously described as “a grisly street fight on the dark streets of an urban metropolis. Haunted by dark creatures and lost souls.”

“This Means War”, which, by AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows‘ own admission, bears a strong resemblance to METALLICA‘s “Sad But True”, is taken from AVENGED‘s sixth and latest album, “Hail To The King”, released last year and the band’s second straight CD to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, following 2010’s “Nightmare”.
