[ENTER SOUNDSCAN] It’s been two years since KUFO’s annual metalpalooza relaunched itself under mission statement “Save the Rock,” an oddly desperate plea, given the target audience. Organizers couldn’t halt the format change of their former sponsor station, PDX Rockfest endures—just a bit north of what current branding suggests. If any act could galvanize a once-proud hesher nation, though, headliner Avenged Sevenfold seems the best bet in ages to dust off Metallica’s abandoned badge and clean up a stratified genre. The Huntington Beach boys’ just-released sixth album, Hail to the King, layers production gloss and infernal grandiosity atop the Hetfield blueprint for widescreen effect patently meant to raise the undead. There might be life in the old devil yet.
