LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 15: Avenged Sevenfold guitarist Zacky Vengeance performs during the 48 Hours Festival October 15, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

If there’s one great thing about these “Kids React To…” videos, it’s that a new generation of kids is being introduced to metal.

The latest group tackled in the series is Avenged Sevenfold. As per usual, little Sydney is the MVP of the cast of kids as the resident hard rock/metal lover. The rest of the kids weren’t very receptive to A7X’s earlier material, but when they got to “Hail To The King,” one of the band’s more radio-friendly tunes, they definitely came around.

The video highlight, however, comes at the end when the off-camera interviewer talks about the band’s stage names. Without giving up any spoilers, let’s just say we hope drummer Brooks Wackerman doesn’t see this video.
