Avenged Sevenfold have been busy working on the Hail To The King animated series with Jon Schnepp of Metalocalypse and an upcoming mobile game called Hail To The King: Deathbat. Today the band is premiering on Machinima's Happy Hour channel the Hail To The King animated series, based around the band's latest album Hail To The King, which you can now watch online.
You can also watch a trailer for the upcoming mobile game Hail To The King: Deathbat below. According to the band, the series and the game go hand in hand with one another. The series tells the story "before" the game takes place and when it ends, the game picks up. The game will be released in early 2014.
Written by Avenged Sevenfold and directed by Metalocalypse's Jon Schnepp, Hail To The King tells the origin story of the Deathbat, and serves as the prologue to an upcoming Hail To The King mobile game.
The first episode "Wager of The Gods" can be seen below while you can watch the whole series (six episodes) over here.
