Avenged Sevenfold and Metalocalypse Director Jon Schnepp Team Up for Six Episode Animated Series
According to their Facebook page, Avenged Sevenfold’s Hail to the King won’t just be an album — it’ll be a multimedia experience. The band is apparently working on a mobile action adventure game with Subscience Studios, plus they’ve just released the trailer for a six-episode animated series they’ve created with Machinima and Metalocalypse director Jon Schnepp. The tone of the trailer is at least semi-serious, but Schnepp’s Dethklokian animation style and general involvement suggests that it won’t be a dour affair at all. It also appears as though the band’s late drummer, James “The Rev” Sullivan, is either a character in the series, or the inspiration for the design of a character in the series. Check it:
Hail to the King comes out August 27.
