Sweden's Avatar are quickly making a name for themselves here in the U.S. Their last album, Black Waltz, sold well here and yielded two Top 30 singles, 'Smells Like a Freakshow' and 'Let it Burn.'

Having set the bar high with the last album, my guess is the band are hoping to outdo themselves with the new album, Hail the Apocalypse, which is due out May 13.

'Bloody Angel' is the lead single from the record. Give it a listen and advise as to whether we should crank it or yank it.
