Swedish melodic death metal band Avatar have certainly evolved from their humble beginnings as a serious act to adopting a full-on nightmare circus theme with their latest in Hail the Apocalypse. The band, popularized in gamer circles with their StarCraft-themed anthem “Queen of Blades” from their self-titled 2009 album, has embraced a more theatrical vision in both their music and their stage performance.
Having just wrapped up the Hail the Apocalypse Tour 2015 with First Decree and Gemini Syndrome. Huntress had to drop off the tour, unfortunately, due to the recovery process after a bout with cancer. A valid excuse, of course, but disappointing nonetheless.
That said, please enjoy the pictures of Avatar below!
