Avatar Announce Live Album, Stream “Bloody Angel”

Avatar have certainly made their mark on the staff at SkullsNBones.com, particularly through their live performances. Now, they are sharing their live attack via their set from Download Festival 2018 in Paris, France.

The King Live in Paris will be released on May 17, 2019, via Entertainment One (eOne).

Frontman Johannes Eckerström writes:

Looking back at all that’s happened and what’s still going on it feels more like a document from a pivotal battle than a live album,” says

In the past, I’ve found it hard to motivate making something like this, but as time goes on, I find it fortunate that we get to have our work captured like this. I realize now more than ever that we are in the process of constant change. This release is a version of Avatar that didn’t exist a year prior, and that already has morphed into something else. The show at Download Paris was a particular one for many reasons. We are very proud of the result.
