Avenged Sevenfold will be releasing on stream services and digitally their compilation album “Diamonds In The Rough” on February 7th. The link for it is here. Set Me Free is a previously unreleased song that was recorded during the 2013 sessions for “Hail To The King”. I am very happy they have decided to put it it for us to listen to now. I think it’s brilliantly done. This is more than a power ballad it’s a music master piece. Singer M. Shadows does such an emotional rendering of the lyrics along with the music is just outstanding. Synyster Gates guitar solo and feel through out the track are eargasmic and amazing. The rest of the band does more than just play background to the former two but raise them and the song to a higher level. I have nothing bad to say about this and could go on about how great it is. I won’t. There is no video but a stream of the song with a animated cover of the album. You can check it out below.
