Metalocalypse producer Jon Schnepp has teamed up with chart-topping rockers Avenged Sevenfold to create an animated web series based on the band's sixth studio album Hail To The King, which debuted in August to worldwide acclaim and the band's best-ever sales.

The horror-fantasy series, which looks about as splattery as Dethklok's ultra-violent misadventures in Metalocalypse, tells the saga of the “Deathbat,” the band's winged skull mascot, and will also serve as a prequel to the band's upcoming mobile video game app (appropriately titled Hail to the King: Deathbat), slated for release in early 2014.
