I like that song Hail to the King. I don't think it's them trying to be accessible, I think it's them just jamming and writing cool songs. If Hail to the King was released by a smaller band, people would dig it as a simple groovy rock song, but because it's Avenged Sevenfold, it's sell-out radio rock.
I have zero problem with the song, the problem is every song on the album sounds like this! the only song to have any kind of tempo change or double bass is Planets. the rest is like I said, Mid career era Megadeth.
