Avenged Sevenfold Teams with Metalocalypse Producer Jon Schnepp for Animated Series Hail to the King
A pretty cool sounding new web series from Avenged Sevenfold, Metalocalypse producer Jon Schnepp, and Machinima crossed our path, and now that there's a trailer available, we had to share!
From the Press Release:
Avenged Sevenfold, one of rock music’s global heavyweights, has always been a trailblazing force in fusing the worlds of music and video games. In the past the band’s music and likeness have appeared in the best-selling video game Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and A7X even has their own custom Xbox controller. With their highly anticipated new album Hail to the King being released by Warner Bros. Records on August 27th, Avenged Sevenfold have joined forces with Machinima, the number one global video entertainment network for young males, to bring fans brand new original video content.
From the creative minds of Avenged Sevenfold and featuring new music from their forthcoming Hail to the King, comes a six-episode animated series which tells the fictional story of the Deathbat – the band’s longtime trademark. Directed by Metalocalypse producer Jon Schnepp, this unique and innovative animated series will air this fall on Machinima’s HappyHour channel.
Machinima has released the premiere trailer, providing a first-look at the series, which you can check out below. We also have EvilShop links to both the Hail to the King album and the "Hail to the King" single at the bottom of the page.
