Hard rockers Avenged Sevenfold are aiming to take over YouTube by teaming up with Machinima for a six-episode animated series entitled “Hail To The King”, which will air this fall. The series is directed by Metalocalypse’s Jon Schnepp and it definitely shows (the animation style is incredibly similar). The series will feature music from A7X’s new album Hail To The King, which can be pre-ordered on iTunes.

In a Facebook post the band announced that they have been hard at work for 18 months on an iOS/Android action/adventure game. It was written and developed by Subscience Studios. No release date has yet been set.

    Too bad a terrible sellout band had to be attached to this. Oh well, better luck next time.

    I honestly don’t listen to this type of music, but I still love Metalocalypse. So if they get the same or similar type of humor in it I’ll watch. Hell, if they start killing there fans at the end of the show I’ll definitely watch..
