Avenged Sevenfold are likely to have the Number One album in the Official Albums Chart this week. Their new album 'Hail To The King' is currently outselling Britain's Got Talent duo Richard & Adam.

The US metal band released the album on Monday (August 26) and it is placed in the top spot on The Official Chart Company's midweek update today (August 28). They lead a list of five new albums inhabiting the top five spots on the chart, with Richard & Adam almost certain to slip from the Number One spot with debut album 'The Impossible Dream' after a four-week stint at the top.

UK producer Naughty Boy is at Number Two with his album 'Hotel Cabana' while Ellie Goulding, Bob Dylan and Franz Ferdinand's 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' follow respectively. Elsewhere in the Album Chart, Newton Faulkner is new at seven with his album 'Studio Zoo' while Fisherman's Friends (14), Belle & Sebastian (25) and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (34) are also in the Top 40.

In the Singles Chart, Ellie Goulding is still at Number One with her track 'Burn'. Only Rizzle Kicks are new in the Top Five with their song 'Lost Generation' selling well. Elsewhere, there are new entries for Shane Filan (7) and The 1975 (26).
