Why so serious? AVATAR's seventh album "Avatar Country" is a again a mix of Nu Metal, Melodic Death Metal and the typical AVATAR Sound, which makes it very special again. People of Earth! Avatar Country is blessing you by opening its borders to the world! Glory to our King! It is with great pride and joy that we here at Avatar Country’s Department of Good News, get to announce the following: “AVATAR the band, featuring His Royal Highness The King and his elite backing orchestra will release their seventh full length, “Avatar Country” on January 12, 2018 via Entertainment One in North America and Century Media Records Ltd. in the rest of the world. A staff member of the Court comments: We see this as our opportunity to finally show the world the glory of “Avatar Country” and our King. The album contains the expected superior examples of how metal should and must sound today and for all eternity. Plus, also included is a new rendition of our national anthem and audio recordings from some of the finest moments of the King’s history of public speaking. “Avatar Country” will also serve as the highly anticipated follow-up to “Feathers and Flesh”. The King and His Band will go on a series of state visits all over the world this winter and spring. GLORY TO OUR KING!”
Strong but delicate, deliberate but subtle, driven but supple, Masaaki Suzuki's 2005 recording of Bach's Italian Concerto and French Overture for harpsichord are quite convincing in their own distinctive way. In Suzuki's hands, the opening crash of the Italian Concerto is as instantly arresting as the powerful opening prelude and fugue from the French Overture is immediately appealing.
